A Rapid RapMan

By on October 13th, 2010 in Hardware, printer, video


How hard is it to build a RapMan? The very popular 3D printer DIY kit has been built by many people but here’s an opportunity for you to see it done in only 2 minutes and 53 seconds. No, it wasn’t actually built that quickly, but the video link below shows a time lapse of the process by which two techs paste together the RapMan from a large pile of parts and print out their first objects.
The video, made by 3D Printers Australia, is also found on a web page where they’ve written perhaps the most detailed review of the RapMan we’ve yet seen, including a host of images from the unboxing to the first print.
