Rep rap - self replicating printers
Just found this info about rep rap.
It's a printer that can print out 3D parts to form a kit.
The kit is then assembled to form another self replicating printer
"RepRap is a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap can print those parts, RepRap is a self-replicating machine - one that anyone can build given time and materials. It also means that - if you've got a RepRap - you can print lots of useful stuff, and you can print another RepRap for a friend...
RepRap is about making self-replicating machines, and making them freely available for the benefit of everyone. We are using 3D printing to do this, but if you have other technologies that can copy themselves and that can be made freely available to all, then this is the place for you too."
is this for real or wind up? Heard of 3D Printers before but who's bright idea was it to produce one that printed out more printers
