RepRap Is 10!
May 29, 2018 01:24PM
Just a quick post to say that today is RepRap's 10th Birthday.

At 14:00 hours UTC on 29 May 2008 at Bath University in the UK the first child RepRap Darwin printed on the original parent RepRap Darwin and assembled by Ed Sells, Vik Olliver and me printed the first grandchild RepRap part.

Without the thousands of RepRap volunteers, tinkerers, writers, makers, doers of RepRappy things (and critics) the project would never have worked. If you're on these forums that's you, and I would like to say: Thank You. I have had a long, varied and enjoyable research career and you made RepRap the most enjoyable of all the research projects that I have done in my whole life.

With my gratitude and love

Happy 10th birthday RepRap.

Thank you for all of the pleasures of making things that we couldn't imagine having the resources to make before we could build our own 3D printers. The delight of designing, making and using our own devices and artworks is hugely rewarding even when set against the challenges - and there have been been many.

Congratulations and thank you for everything you have done to found and further the RepRap project. And thankyou for printing the part I ordered through 3D Hubs some time ago (still working great)! It was very interesting to come and see your machines - it certainly opened my eyes to the variety of other machines (Ormerod, Deltas etc).

Thank you for starting such a wonderful project, which has provided countless hours of fun, frustration and fruitfulness for so many (probably) millions now.

And thank you for supporting Mike and I to write our recent paper.

Happy Birthday Reprap.

I might have been a little late to the Party, & not come in a 3D Printed Costume, but still had a good time.
