Community | Wiki Administration | Help and support

Community portal

Dit is de community portal. Dit is 'the place to be' om uit te vinden wat er gaande is binnen het RepRap project. Kom in contact met collega RepRappers, zie wat er nog gedaan moet worden om het project te verbeteren en vertel nieuws of huidige activiteiten die plaatsvinden in het RepRap 'Universum'.

Getting involved

Internet relay chat channel

The internet relay chat (IRC) channel #RepRap on freenode is a fairly active community gathering point for many RepRappers. If you need specific help or want to get involved the IRC channel is a good place to do so.

If you are unfamiliar with IRC you can use your web browser. Just click to join the channel.

Community forum

The RepRap community forum has a lot of information of current RepRap community events. It is a good place to get in touch and collaborate with RepRappers across the world. There is a certain amount of redundancy in the forum and IRC but it seems to work out.

Local User Groups and Hackerspaces

Of particular interest for new RepRappers is the RepRap User Group (RUG) forums which provide local hubs for RepRappers. If you are looking to find local help building a RepRap your local RUG forum or hackerspace may be the best place to start.

There are also RUG wiki pages available for some of the RUGs, although many of these are incomplete.

Helping out

Main: RepRap help


The RepRap project is community driven so helping out can be as simple as making a new extension and blogging about it or posting it in the Development Catalog.

Official software and hardware sources are stored on the RepRap Sourceforge SVN. If you wish to contribute a patch or bug report the RepRap project uses Sourceforge's issue tracker or you can contact Adrian directly if you are interested in gaining commit access although generally the issue tracker is a much faster route to having your patch accessible.


Lets face it, the documentation is sloppy and you've probably got some ideas on how to fix that. Go for it! This mediawiki is open to edit, if you run into troubles or aren't sure how to edit the pages you see here check out the help page (although that page is also a bit of a mess.. seems a bit of a cyclic problem).

You can find more info on the RepRap documentation and the tasks that need be done at the Wiki Administration portal.

There is also potentially some interest in doing some RepRap Collaborative Publications however it might be best to ask around on IRC or the forums to see if anyone is currently interested.

In particular, many people think it would be a wonderful thing to simplify the design and document the design in enough detail that a couple of 13-year-olds could build a RepRap: education.


Your financial contribution will help the RepRap development team in many ways; we always put our donations to good use. Whether it's investing in better tools, new motors, or more finely tuned extruders, we guarantee your donation directly supports our growth as an efficient community of makers. Ultimately, your monetary contribution allows us to continue our progress, making better and better printers with every dollar.

  • While there are Admins, we try to not put specific people onto a throne. That means: everybody doing a contribution to this wiki or this project is a contributor. You can look at their activity.
