Cost

Projected cost is $500 for a completed bot

Personal Thoughts

Design goal: This is designed to be cheap and easily assembled by anyone with a minimal toobox. It should require no more than a screwdriver, hacksaw and file, though other tools may be required in the end. The printed part list is being kept to a minimum, so those of you who don't already have printers won't have to shell out $2-300 for a set of parts to get started. The majority of the parts are either readily available from multiple sources or are easily sourced from reputable vendors who ship globally with reasonable shipping costs. Whenever possible, multiple sources will be listed, and if you know of a source that I am missing, please list it here or in the talk page. For those of you who DO have printers, as many of the parts as possible are available in printed equivalents. The goal is to be as flexible as possible.

Projected final cost including the entire mechanical stage, but not including motors, extruder, or electronics is under $200, and that could be reduced under $150 if you have access to a printer to increase the printed part content.

This is not designed to be a bridge bot that you use to make some better bot. While I am designing it to be as simple to get started, it is designed as a first class bot and a true reprap, not a repstrap (though I call it a "Vitamin-Rich RepRap" since I favor off-the-shelf components over printed ones where it makes economic sense to do so).
