This is the video we made to explain the ideas behind the whole RepRap project. Start with this one of you want an introduction.

Vik's Venturi Vacuum from Adrian Bowyer on Vimeo.


RepRap was invited to the Cheltenham Science Festival in June 2008. While we were all explaining RepRap to the visitors, Vik's RepRap child machine was busy making a vacuum pump that he had designed. Here it is working.

Pop!Tech is a yearly conference on technical issues of world concern and on the technical innovations that may improve the future. In 2007 Adrian was one of the invited speakers. Follow this link to watch the talk.

RepRap metal deposition head from Adrian Bowyer on Vimeo.


This is the prototype design for a field's metal extrude head. It uses the same brass tube that we use for the polymer extruder, and the same nozzle. The tube has a smaller silicone tube inside it and a notch filed in it. A solenoid clamps the silicone at the notch. There's a brass cup at the top full of field's metal (melting point 50oC). All the brass parts are heated by wrapping them in nichrome wire set in JB Weld in our usual way.

RepRap doctor blade in operation from Adrian Bowyer on Vimeo.

The best doctor blade is a sharp V notch which you run the extrude head over once to clean it. This works really well, but the extruded junk builds up in the V. So this little lever, nudged by the extrude head before it cleans itself, cleans out the last bit of extrude junk. As you can see, this one is made from bits of scrap plastic. We'll ad an RP version to the RepRap design soon.

Beaded belt (or ball chain ) being used in a temporary setup on the RepRap as proof of principle. The beaded belt is obtainable from most hardware stores and is used to hold plugs to baths with. Being able to print belt gears will mean there is no need to cast them from CAPA.

Adrian has an MSc student, Arman Ghandizadehdezfuli, who is looking at Mendel for the future. Here's a video of the prototype extruder changer that he's designed being tested in Darwin. (The slight jerkiness is all from the cheapo webcam software; the actual movements were clean and smooth.)

Timelapse of Adrian assembling the first RepRap "Darwin" from Adrian Bowyer on Vimeo.

On the 18 and 19 of April 2007 Adrian assembled our first RepRap Version 1.0 "Darwin" from scratch and shot a time-lapse video of the entire thing at one frame every three seconds. It took him four and a half hours spread over the two days.

An attempt to print a corner bracket for the Darwin RepRap design fails when the workpiece detaches itself from the stage, and takes on a life of its own. 2.5 sec/frame time-lapse.
