You can use any software you want. Personally i use Slic3r & pronterface. But ideally you want a control panel for the printer and then print from SD Card.

In terms of the printer i guess you mean the Prusa i3? There are many forms of this printer around currenty (Box, Single plate, supported lasercut model (dont now name lol).


Also there is a step by step 3D Animated build guide somewere on the web but i cannot find the link

Idealy if your new into reprap try and find a build day in your area. i hand built mine just by using google and it takes a bit to get going if you dont have someone who can solve simple problems for you in seconds.

O'Reilly will do a webcast for ppl thinking about building a 3d printer. Might be worth checking out.
3D Printing for Everyone: What you need to build your own 3D printer

Here is an online book on the subject + more. good read.
Open Book on "Low-cost 3D Printing for Science, Education and Sustainable Development"

And a great article on the i3 in the new RepRap mag.
