A reliable place to discuss, compare, review, technology and guide to support our REPRAP enthusiast. in malaysia
The RepRap project is an initiative to develop a 3D printer that can print most of its own components. RepRap (short for replicating rapid prototyper) uses anadditive manufacturing technique called Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) to lay down material in layers; a plastic filament or metal wire is unwound from a coil and supplies material to produce a part. The project calls it Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) to avoid trademark issues around the "fused deposition modeling" term. Now RepRaps have been built that can print in any type of material. As an open design, all of the designs produced by the project are released under a free software license, the GNU General Public License.Due to the self-replicating ability of the machine, authors envision the possibility to cheaply distribute RepRap units to people and communities, enabling them to create (or download from the Internet) complex products without the need for expensive industrial infrastructure (distributed manufacturing) including scientific equipment. They intend for the RepRap to demonstrate evolution in this process as well as for it to increase in number exponentially. A preliminary study has already shown that using RepRaps to print common products results in economic savings, which justifies the investment in a RepRap.
We assist and help potential, young creative designers and inventors to challenge their creativity to the limits by making the idea into a realistic model. Complicated design, material strength and mechanics of product are put into test.
A series of events for kids, youth, hobbyist and professionals is created to bring the potential and talent within a person which later to be reward with exciting and promising prizes. Product development
