W.Afate: African inventor makes 3D printer from scrap

27/04/2016 at 16:48

This might be interesting:
“Located in Lome, Capital of Togo, WoeLab is the first hackerpace in west Africa. A young Togolese maker at WoeLab wants to bring 3D printing technology to the land, to create a 3D printer “Made in Africa”. He calls it W.AFATE, a composition of “W” WoeLab, and “Afate” the name of the inventor.

W.AFATE 3D printer is inspired by the Prusa Mendel. The Woelab-Lomé imported a Prusa Mendel kit from France and assembled it during the AchiCamp 2012. Afate identified a few issues in the assembly process and initiated this new project aiming to build a 3D printer which is easy to reproduce, using recycled materials.”
