Welcome to the State College RepRap User's Group Wiki!
Thank you for visiting our page. We are a group of RepRap users based out of Penn State and participate in developing 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.
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!
Spring 2012 offering is EDSGN 494-004: 736288: variable credit 1-6. TuTh ~ 5:30-7:30. It is 80% hands on build & test and redesign, but some students may focus on making models for design teams in design courses. To register contact [email protected]
12.8.11: Engineering Expo! The RepRaps and several interesting prints were shown off at the Engineering Expo in the HUB today.
11.29.11: New Wiki looks.
11.8.11: The RepRaps being developed are now completed and printing is underway.
10.13.11: In preparation for TEDx PSU, a RepRapped logo was designed and printed. The STL file is uploaded below in the Files and Firmware section!
10.11.11: The fall semester is in full gear and repraps are being quickly made! These two photos are from the blue team or the "clear mendel" team - MReng
9.15.11: The new units are coming along nicely, check out the current photos below!
8.22.11: The Spring Semester began this year with a new set of students for EDSGN 497C. Along with students from last year's "Alpha" class, the new "Beta" students are making quick work of 4 new Ohm models.
7.8.11: FabLab class at PSU (EDSGN 497C) has a few openings, but anyone having trouble should email the professor [email protected] Audits are more than welcome as well.
6.1.11: Summer FabLab development in full swing printing parts for four printers to be built in class this fall.
4.28.11: Showcased RepRap Mendels at the Penn State Senior Design Fair!
All information about our electronics that we use, including firmware can be found here.
Anything and everything that deals with software will be here eventually. (WIP)
