Discovering the value of money and savings in your youth is, obviously, invaluable, but not always easy to catch on to before you have decades of trial and error in your stead. Motivation to make something you really want even when you don’t have thousands of dollars in your budget can definitely spur learning and added creativity early on though, and it’s certainly encouraging to see the 20-something crowd catching on; now though, we’re looking at a 16-year-old who understands the value of being thrifty as well as creating a quality product, exhibiting his talent for resourcefulness as well as making, hacking, and getting his design out there to the world.
With the €60 Cherry 3D printer, German teen and Instructables member Johannes Rostek (also known as Vulcaman) introduces us to a project encompassing not only great price but also a formidable looking, functional piece of equipment. Entering a contest is also always great motivation, and Rostek invites you to vote for his Instructables design should you enjoy it, as it will be one of the designs posted on the contest page for the Instructables 3D Printing Contest with 3D Hubs. You can vote for this design now, or get more information, by clicking here.
