Reprap In Progress

Hey a fellow team member and myself are working on a homebuilt, self replicating 3D printer known as a Reprap. If your interested in learning more, check out our blog. I will be keeping it up to date with the most recent occurrences in the construction and use of our printer. Pictures will be coming soon, check it out!

That’s a really good idea! On the makerbot site, it mentions an arduino (LOVE the arduino boards, soo much)… so i assume that you’ll be controlling it with that? Because if so, your coolness points just shot up (arbitrary number).

Lol, thanks. Actually, the main board is powered by a Sanguino (an upgraded version of the arduino as I understand it) but each extruder (we have 2) is controlled by it’s own arduino. So in total we have:

2x Arduino
1x Sanguino

How many coolness points is that worth? Thanks for stopping by the blog btw!
