See here for details of how to get included on this page. RepRap is open-source hardware, so there is not a single place to buy it but rather many options. Vendors To remain fair, all vendors that sell here are up for review. If you get bad service, say so on the forums and help other reprappers. Community There are several subforums in the RepRap Marketplace and Job Shop, where people who have sets of RepRap parts for sale can advertise the fact and others can post requests to buy.

Open Book on "Low-cost 3D Printing for Science, Education and Sustainable Development" Low-cost, three-dimensional (3D) desktop printing, although still in its infancy, is rapidly maturing, with seemingly unlimited potential. The hope is that this cutting-edge 3D technology will open new dimensions to science and education, and will make a marked impact in developing countries. This book gives a reasonable, first overview of current research on 3D printing. It aims to inspire curiosity and understanding in young scholars and new generations of scientists to motivate them to start building up their own 3D printing experiences and to explore the huge potential this technology provides –with the final goal of putting learning literally in their hands.

openscad tutorial In this OpenSCAD tutorial series so far we’ve covered the basics of the OpenSCAD interface, how to make 2D forms, how to make some basic 3D forms, how to position those forms in 3D space, the different ways to combine forms, how to create mashups of one or more existing STL’s and OpenSCAD forms, and how to use modules to reuse your code to make your life easier. Although I described the last three tutorials as “intermediate” levels, that’s really only because you learned the basics so quickly from the first few tutorials. With just the basics you can literally design anything you can imagine. The “intermediate” lessons will let you do a little more and make your life a lot easier. Before we get started, the image is from BoriSpider‘s OpenSCAD tutorial homework. You may remember one of the first tutorials was about creating flat 2D forms using some simple commands.
