Color: Blue and White

This page is for information about the PSU 3D printing Unit Blue and White. This printer is designed to be an Open Hybrid Mendel, or OHM for short. This printer is part of the Penn State class EDSGN 497J. The project was originally started in Spring 2013 but was only a frame at the end of that semester. It was worked on again in the Fall Semester when the final assembly was finally finished at the end of November 2013. The printer was worked on by Penn State College of Engineering undergraduates ranging from sophomores to seniors. The majority of those involved with the project had no or little RepRap or 3D printing experience at the start of the project and most had to learn as the build required more knowledge of the printer.

The Blue and White printer had all its parts printed with PLA by other RepRap machines. The printer will mostly be printing with PLA but has the potential for ABS. It will see use in creating other RepRap machines for the Spring 2014 semester.
