Who I am?
My name is Tomas Starek and I am the real enthusiast in anything what is technically interesting and a bit complicated. It doesn’t matter it is hardware or software, but to be honest, the combination of both fits me best. I am 40+ and I am an “old-school” man. I like to use my head, hands and I honor the craft.
My education and experience are recruiting from the IT and mechanical field. I live in The Czech Republic, “the home of PRUSA” 😊, and like many others, I found my passion for 3D printing.
What's my goal?
When I started this project, my goal was to design and build functional DIY SLS 3D Printer which will have key features of “adult” SLS printers – just for my personal joy. It was also the challenge because only a few people who tried that in the past had some outcomes. At least to my knowledge.
After more than year, I had been working on this project, I understood why. It is a complex topic combining knowledge from different fields – mechanics, optics, thermodynamics, software algorithms, IT hardware and more.
Just before first test print attempts (March 2022), I decided to share my journey to my dreamed DIY SLS printer with others. Simply said, SLS4All.com was born, to make my project open-sourced.
What to find here?
I started this page to be the DIY SLS Printer build blog. Later, I decided to open my approach and to publish all the documentation incl. hardware drawings, PCB drawings, STL models, firmware, etc. I will gradually add this content and if there will be interest, I will also prepare the assembly manual.
Is that free?
