Please do not add to this page. (It is slightly overcrowded as it is.)

This Page Contains multiple RepRap development projects and should be split up. Each individual project/design/improvement should have its own development page within an encompassing category.

Weight reduction

Using M3 rods (instead of M8) for the diagonals will reduce the total weight of your RepRap darwin by a couple of kilo's. I don't think this will make much difference in terms of rigidity. If you want to have a more mobile RepRap, this will help a out! You need to add two washers to stay compatible to the [diagonal tie brackets].

Alternatively, we could design printable diagonals. They have to be pretty thick, because plastic stretches a bit. Even a tiny bit of stretching makes the machine less accurate.

Heated base plate

The folks at [Metalab] have had a lot of success with reducing thermal distortion by building on a [heated base plate]. See that link for details.
