The R&D Tax Credit Aspects of RepRap 3D Printers

Modern 3D printing has been decades in the making, but only in the past decade have we seen the proliferation of the technology into the hands of hobbyists, makers, and manufacturers. This has been due to several causes, primarily the reduction in price, and widespread availability of computing which can handle 3D modeling. Makers and […]

Researchers Developing Self-Replicating 3D Printers for the Moon

We’ve heard a lot about how 3D printing is the future of space exploration. One of the reasons the technology is so critical to space travel is that having a 3D printer on board a spacecraft allows astronauts to 3D print replacement parts, tools and other supplies. In addition, future missions that involve extended stays […]

Diyouware Initiative Invents New Resin Deposition Modeling 3D Printing Method

Diyouware Initiative Invents New Resin Deposition Modeling 3D Printing Method

It’s been a couple of years since we’ve heard from the Diyouware initiative, which was started by two brothers in Madrid with a passion for robotics, design, electronics, software development, and mechatronics. The two were inspired by the RepRap 3D printer revolution, and built DiyouPCB, an open source, 3D printed PCB 3D printer, in early […]

MRRF 2017: 3D Printing Community Comes Together to Celebrate 3D Printers, Making and Innovation

My little maker heart is full after spending 48 hours at the 5th Annual Midwest RepRap Festival (aka MRRF) In Goshen, Indiana. Yes, over 1,000 people from 18 countries around the world made their way to the 4-H Fairgrounds in a tiny town (where Wal-Mart has horse and buggy parking) to geek out over 3D […]

3D Printing Outside the Box: The Hangprinter Prints in Midair Without Any Limits

3D Printing Outside the Box: The Hangprinter Prints in Midair Without Any Limits

3D printers just aren’t what they used to be – and that’s a good thing. There’s nothing wrong with a traditional box-like printer that sits on the floor or on a desk, of course; those printers are the livelihood of many. But a box is, by its nature, limiting, which is why people are so […]

Now on Instructables: Build Your Own SLA/DLP 3D Printer with 3D Printed Parts and Basic Hardware

3D printers are getting more affordable these days, but for many crafty makers, building their own printers is more than worth it – not only financially, but in terms of the satisfaction that comes from creating something useful. I love seeing the ingenuity that goes into self-built 3D printers, especially when their creators share them […]

Extra Senses: RepRap Ltd. Project Helps People Extend Their Sense of Touch

Most people agree that humans have five senses, and they’re pretty straightforward – we see what’s in the vicinity of our eyes, we hear what sound vibrations reach our ears, taste what we put in our mouths, etc. Some people believe in a sixth sense, whether that’s seeing dead people or having some other sort of […]

The RepRap Project started as a British initiative to develop a 3D printer that can print most of its own components and be a low-cost 3D printer, but it is now made up of hundreds of collaborators worldwide. (RepRap is short for replicating rapid prototype.) RepRap is the first of the low-cost 3D printers, and […]

What The Heck is Happening Over on the RepRap Project’s Wikipedia Page?

Being a Wikipedia editor is absurdly hard and usually pretty thankless work. With well over five million articles available on Wikipedia, many of which need to be regularly monitored, edited and kept up to date, the system relies on a dedicated community of unpaid editors who donate their free time to keep everything as encyclopedic […]

Use 3D Printing to Build Your Own Set of Game Buzzers

Use 3D Printing to Build Your Own Set of Game Buzzers

Every family has one: that person who cheats at whatever game the family is trying to play together, be it UNO, Life, Monopoly or craps. Their attempt to win any game by whatever means necessary is the start of many night-long, outrage-fueled family battles that only end when your parents send everyone to bed early. […]
