Tutorial: Getting started with the Arduino Materia 101

Earlier this fall, Arduino Co-Founder Massimo Banzi announced the launch of the company’s first 3D Printer, the Arduino Materia 101. The device, which is powered by an Arduino Mega 2560 (ATmega2560) and a RAMPS 1.4 shield, is currently available for pre-order.


In an effort to lower the barriers of entry into this mainstream-bound technology, Arduino has revealed that it will be sharing a series of tutorials for beginner Makers, starting with this step-by-step guide from kengdahl.


The tutorial even has a treat inside: an Octocat g-code file! After completing the inaugural tutorial, download the file to print a tiny tentacled creature for yourself!


Arduino encourages Makers to follow along as they introduce a number upcoming guides in the days to come. Meanwhile, don’t forget to pre-order your own ATmega2560 based printer today!
