Welcome to the State College RepRap User's Group Wiki!

Thank you for visiting our page. We are a group of RepRap users based out of Penn State and participate in developing new parts and improvements for RepRap and have created a new merging of the Mendel and Prusa RepRap designs which we call the Open Hybrid Mendel, or OHM for short.

Our project is combined with class offerings at Penn State, so if you are interested and attend PSU be sure to contact us for information!

Spring 2012 offering is EDSGN 494-004: 736288: variable credit 1-6. TuTh ~ 5:30-7:30. It is 80% hands on build & test and redesign, but some students may focus on making models for design teams in design courses. To register contact [email protected]

What's New?

2.9.12: Several groups have been printing the parts for new RepRaps for the last few weeks. These will be the orange unit , Yellow unit , and the Silver unit . These units will be OHM models.

Much work has been done on getting building Mondo Mondo.

12.8.11: Engineering Expo! The RepRaps and several interesting prints were shown off at the Engineering Expo for Senior Design projects in the HUB on campus today. Below are some of the prints we displayed. All the STLs were found on Thingiverse.

For what used to be new, check PSU RUG History


All information about our electronics that we use, including firmware can be found here.


Anything and everything that deals with software will be here eventually. (WIP)
