    • Open Source self-replicating 3D printer Josef Průša josefprusa.cz @josefprusaSunday, September 18, 11
    • What is 3D printer? Just in case ;-) You can recreate your 3D ideas in real lifeSunday, September 18, 11
    • Sunday, September 18, 11
    • Simplified principle Cartesian robot + Extruder Z + X Y = 3D printerSunday, September 18, 11
    • How does 3D printer work? Y X 2D + 2D + 2D + 2D + 2D = ?????Sunday, September 18, 11
    • How does 3D printer work? Z X YSunday, September 18, 11
    • 240 whistles for TEDxPrague 300 more to goSunday, September 18, 11
    • “History” • 2005 - Founded by Dr Adrian Bowyer at the University of Bath • 2006 - First part printed • 2008 - RepRap Darwin • 2009 - RepRap Mendel (Makerbot was born) • 2010 - Huxley, Prusa MendelSunday, September 18, 11
    • 2006 first printed part • Chicken and egg problem photo by Vik OliverSunday, September 18, 11
    • 2008 Darwin • First printer released • Big, bulky, hard to assemble • But it worked!! photo by Adrian BowyerSunday, September 18, 11
    • 2009 Mendel • Smaller • Faster • Faster to replicate This year Makerbot was founded and did ship first kit.Sunday, September 18, 11
    • 2010 Huxley • Even smaller • Still PITA to assemble • Smaller build area photo by Erik De BruijnSunday, September 18, 11
    • 2010 Prusa • Almost no bearings, using PRINTED alternatives • Build time reduced to few days for newbies • Half replication timeSunday, September 18, 11
    • Whats unique about RepRap • You get education Each of these unique things can be for good or bad of the project • It’s living organism • It’s Open Open Hardware (O²H) • It’s a platform for your projects • RepRap community is unbyuableSunday, September 18, 11
    • Education • lots of stuff to learn before build • when done you can try out your ideas immediately • you basically became punk engineer :-) • my storySunday, September 18, 11
    • My story • I joined community exactly 2 years ago • I created Prusa Mendel version 1 year ago 1 year • Now I’m writing book for O’reillySunday, September 18, 11
    • Whats unique about RepRap • You get education Each of these unique things can be for good or bad of the project • It’s living organism • It’s Open Open Hardware (O²H) • It’s a platform for your projects • RepRap community is unbyuableSunday, September 18, 11
    • Living thing • Nobody is in charge in RepRap • There is no stable point(company?) from which community grows • Everybody can do whatever he wants, and evolution/community decides what is usedSunday, September 18, 11
    • Number of printers • Nobody really knows, most of the printers are crowd-sourced • Erik de Bruijn estimated in his thesis between 3872 and 4840 people in the community (October 2010) • But what we know for sure, community grows exponentially!!Sunday, September 18, 11
    • Whats unique about RepRap • You get education Each of these unique things can be for good or bad of the project • It’s living organism • It’s Open Open Hardware (O²H) • It’s a platform for your projects • RepRap community is unbyuableSunday, September 18, 11
    • O²H TM :-P • Not only that we share source you can modify, as there is no central authority, you can actually change the face of project • We are OPEN to accept OPEN source HARDWARE.Sunday, September 18, 11
    • Whats unique about RepRap • You get education Each of these unique things can be for good or bad of the project • It’s living organism • It’s Open Open Hardware (O²H) • It’s a platform for your projects • RepRap community is unbyuableSunday, September 18, 11
    • Platform It’s easy to use RepRap as platform, because community thinks about it as platform. That means, that you have lots of support for making modifications. We don’t only want to print, but we also want to evolve/invent. • Metal printing • Transistor printing • Dual head extrusionSunday, September 18, 11

    • Traps of the project • Always ask the community before you buy full kit from company. • Only support you get is from community, so amount of support is multiplied by factor how nice you act with community. • Ask on IRC (Hint: write “trap?” and you’ll get the latest traps) • Don’t go for the most barebones ($300) but instead build state of the art ($600). RepRaps point isn’t to be cheaper alternative of RepRap. • If you buy RepRap from some company, judge company not the project.Sunday, September 18, 11
    • Reward • If you are willing to spend some time on learning about printers.You can print as well or better them commercial printer ;-)Sunday, September 18, 11
