Welcome to the State College RepRap User's Group Wiki!

  • Our meetings are on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month at 7pm at The Make Space, downtown in the alley behind Green Bowl and the Fraser Street garage.
  • Thank you for visiting our page. We are a group of RepRap users based out of Penn State & the State College area. We participate in designing new parts and improvements for RepRap and have created a new merging of the Mendel and Prusa RepRap designs which we call the Open Hybrid Mendel, or OHM for short. We also are developing the RepRap Mullis as a low-cost laboratory robot capable of preforming DNA amplification via a polymerase chain reaction.
  • Our project is combined with class offerings at Penn State, so if you are interested and attend PSU be sure to contact us for information!
  • Click here for a tutorial on how conduct a print with a RepRap Mendel!
  • Submit your creations to Printrverse, a student-run printing service.

This is an updated picture of the working area of PSU RUG. The location is still 312 Hammond, but over Winter break 2013-2014, the room was reorganized to segregate the 3D printing space from the regular class space. To the left of this picture is the space for the Penn State 3D printing club.


This is the working area of PSU RUG (before Spring 2014 semester), which the room 312 of Hammond Building of Penn State. Most of the printers are placed in this area.


This is the status board of some of the printers. Check this first before using any printers.

Students in 3D-printing class are smart and they make their efforts to all kinds of projects. The class is a place where students communicate with each other, learn from each other and have so much fun.
