The current version of Ormerod is Ormerod 2. For the original Ormerod see below.
The RepRapPro Ormerod design is the latest from RepRapPro. The machine is a faster to assemble, networked 3D printer with non-contact bed probe for full geometric compensation.
Its primary design goal is to offer a printer which is easy to expand in functionality, fast to replicate, and fast to assemble and to commission. This new model builds on the already established designs and technical advances which have undergone brisk development and heavy testing since the RepRap Project‘s inception in 2004.
The RepRapPro Ormerod is a monochrome 3D printer configured to work with one type of plastic at a time. However, RepRapPro Ormerod is fundamentally designed to work with three deposition heads and an upgrade kit will be available soon for this machine to allow it to print multiple materials and colours.
