RepRap

Thinking about building a Wallace.

Hello,

I am thinking about building a Wallace Reprap.  Are there any others that have it?  Pros? Cons?

Thanks for any info!

 

KellerRobotics and its progress

Well I've been working http://kellerrobotics.com, the website for my business KellerRobotics since August or so, and I finally have the first printer of the fleat of printers which is a RepRap Prusa Mendel i2. I ordered a new hot end and it should be here early next month. I was a little bored tonight so I downloaded Blender since its one of the few full-feature and free 3d modeling programs available and its not that bad of a learning curve, Had a pretty decent wolf head made within a half hour of downloading the program.

RepRap - Issues trying to simulate a print

Okay, so this is my first forum post on LMR so bare with me please.

Protowrxs Prusa 3d Printer

So with so many LMR enthusiasts building, buying, printing, or renting 3D printers I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon and go along for the ride. I can really see the joy in being able to just print cool things off ThingiVerse much less the thought of designing some little mount, feature, cover or whatever for a robot you may be building.

Morgan 3D printer adventure!

Thanks to Ossipee and his jedi mind tricks I have started working on another RepRap. My first RepRap was a Rostock which was on the cutting edge at the time and now I'm building another rather immature model. I have Ossipee to thank for the ongoing Rostock adventure as well!

Since the Morgan is so new, documentation is still in a state of flux with quite a few people documenting various virtual and real-world builds. While this is good it also has a way of muddying the already murky RepRap waters...

Complete. I am able to extrude plastic pieces as long as I have a 3D drawing of the part.
A last minute note to direct people to the other page where I showed building the NEW hot-end for this printer. http://letsmakerobots.com/node/37011 Other than … Read more

Project Reprap Rostock Rosblog (Hopefully not ROSFLOP!)

Thought I would start a blog documenting my rostock build. Hopefully this will help some other noobs work out the minutae of a project involving so many disciplines!

Rostock Build Blog.

 

For years there have been many great versions of DIY desktop manufacturing tools, and one of the most fun to build (and watch while it prints) is the Rostock 3D printer, which uses delta kinematics to equate its motion. 

It will print plastic parts when it's done ... hopefully :)
    LMR, meet BumbleBee ! BumbleBee, meet LMR :) This a new printer I'm working on, a very different design compared to the Prusa Mendel. I'm doing it because the … Read more
It prints plastic parts to help me in my plan to conquer the world ... bua-ha-haaa
  Hi LMR, I have finally decided to take on the challenge and build my own 3D printing machine. While I usually try doing things from scratch, this time I have … Read more
3d printing, a bit of 3d scanning

CNC Machine V2 with RepRap Controller

I finally finished my Fireball V90 CNC build.  In May, I got the frame, and I planned to use the motors and electronics I purchased for upgrading the Valkyrie-clone CNC.  So I made some NEMA-17 to NEMA-23 adapter plates from CD-R disks, and got it all up and running.  It's running off 12V for now, with 24V planned in the future.

 

This is an additive rapid prototyping machine that can print lots of its own parts, it replicates!
   This is my build of a Reprap v2 3D Printer, called a Mendel.  Since 2005, the inventors of the Reprap have been leading a now worldwide movement to create a … Read more

RepRap Stepper Driver v1.2 and Next Gen CNC

In the picture from top-left, clockwise to bottom-left: the terminal block (24V power up to 13A), the 2 X-axis drivers, the Y-axis driver (blue heat sink), and the Z-axis driver (blue heat sink), the Arduino controller (direction x3/enable x3/step x3), and just below the terminal block there is a small 9V regulator board to shift 24V down to 9V for the Arduino.  Everything is mounted on an MDF board, and the board is mounted with baling wire.
