I'm starting my first build of a repstap, piece by piece. I've been working 2nd shift at NNSY and have some free time in the day.

I'm glad to see such an active online community to refer to for this project.

Just wondering if anyone else was in the area? I've got a fairly open large garage with a pc running Ubuntu quite nicely, and access to plenty of wood working equipment.

Hi Jeremy,

I am a Russian-language journalist based in New York. I'm writing a story about RepRap for a multimedia project and magazine called Snob.ru. I wonder if you could help me.

I'm looking to speak to people who are building/using RepRaps who are not necessarily part of the original project team, or even engineers. Sounds like you might be one of those people.

Could you possibly tell me a bit about how you got into RepRapping? How's it coming along?

My e-mail is katyakumkova@gmail.com. You can also reach me at 510.2857693

Many thanks in advance!

Hey Guy,

I'm in Newport News and am VERY interested in making one of these. I'm still doing some preliminary research on literature and parts but would like to know how yours is coming along? Where are you located and how many of the parts have you collected so far?

It's nice to see other people in the area energetic about this project. I have been traveling a lot for work and have not been able to work past the completion of electronics (for info on my progress see [jeremygerdes.blogspot.com]). I hope to resume progress in a couple of months.

Hello everyone! Just a heads up that over at the hackerspace in Norfolk, Virginia we have some 3d printing action. It's called 757 Labs (www.757labs.org.)

We have the original Rep Rap kit, but it's made of laser cut acrylic. The parts are cracking, and we're planning to re-use the metal parts from it to build a Mendel. We will need to source smaller stepper motors and perhaps a few other parts, but other than this things are good.

One of our members purchased and built a MakerBot, so there is a MakerBot in house as well. This will be used to print the rep rap parts.

We're also halfway there on a CNC router, made of extruded tslot and such. This is my project. Hardware for 10mm slot is fairly expensive.

The lab has a 6 axis robot arm, of the 1000 pound variety.

The lab has a 25 watt co2 laser engraver as well. All it needs is a box built around it (in progress), otherwise it's fully working.

Feel free to jump on the mailing list on the website, and there is also an irc channel on irc.757.org called #hackerspace where people can be found.

Greetings RepRappers.

I am a graduate student at William and Mary and I have been documenting my build of a Clonedel RepStrap which is essentially a Prusa Mendel made with Resin parts cast from a mold.

I have been posting my progress on my site [ [yetanotherreprapguide.blogspot.com] ]

Would anyone in my area be willing to print me some Prusa Mendel parts? I'm new to this and I really want to get into it.

I'm almost ready to start my first prints. When I get everything callibrated I'll let you know if I can start printing pursuant pieces. In the meantime I recommend looking for some sellers on eBay.
