RepRap Detail

This is the place for you to write up improvements to RepRap and RepStrap machines. It is also the place to post ideas that you think will help other RepRap users, particularly new ones.

Please include as many pictures and diagrams as you can; these really help understanding.

Don't be frightened to tidy, to re-organize, to correct and to clarify the work of others, but don't delete anything without good reason (good reasons are things like the post is offensive, is spam, or is scientifically incorrect).

By all means include lasting information that has previously appeared in the [Main Blog], the [Builder's Blog] or the [Forums] - we want to systematize that in a chronologically-independent way here. But please don't post questions (they belong on the [Forums]) or information that is transient.

There is a dedicated [forum thread here] for discussion of this Builder's wiki, what should go on it, and how it should be organized.
