RepRap Reproduces

By on June 12th, 2008 in blog


RepRap is an open project that provides a design for a home-built 3D Printer with a difference: the design is capable of printing itself. We’ve described RepRap before, but this time a significant milestone has been achieved: RepRap has actually reproduced!

We have a picture of the results of the reproduction process from the RepRap site. Two RepRaps appear side by side, the left being the “parent” and the right being the “child”.

Kerry Stevenson, aka "General Fabb" has written over 8,000 stories on 3D printing at Fabbaloo since he launched the venture in 2007, with an intention to promote and grow the incredible technology of 3D printing across the world. So far, it seems to be working!
