DIEGO PORQUERAS EXPLORED HIS PASSION FOR 3D PRINTING at monthly meetups at the Crash Space hackerspace in L.A., where he got to know a range of printers and their operators, including future Deezmaker collaborator Rich “Whosawhatis.” It was a great way to learn about the strengths and weaknesses of each machine. The fruits of his investigations? The promising new RepRap Buko framework and an entire line of Deezmaker Bukobot printers, inspired by Prus Mendel, Printrbot, and Wallace models and augmented by his own engineering ideas.
