RepRap open-source 3D printer

reprapSuppose that you’re Del Griffith and need new shower curtain rings for your pre-holidays sales trip to NYC.

Instead of ordering them from a catalog and waiting for delivery, you can download or create the design, load it into your PC, and “print” them in your RepRap printer. This could transform society.

What is 3D printing?
3D printing creates products via the additive process. Traditional machining is a subtractive process. RepRap originates in Bath, England, is totally open source, and is a vanguard. Its descendants may allow customized one-off production at mass-production prices, close to or even at the point-of-use. Learn more: RepRap wiki.
