This is the page for the State College Rep Rap User Group's (SCRUG)Yellow & Green 3D printer. The printer was developed, assembled, and is currently operated by students in Penn State's Engineering Design 497J course and members of the 3D printing club. Our goal is to continuously tweak the printer until it is ready for distribution and sale to other departments in the University and local schools and businesses.

This printer is mainly comprised of yellow frame pieces with two green z-motor mounts. The Z axis motors plates were printed on the Makerbots in the PSU Learning Factory and have a contrasting green color.


As of October 2014 this 3D print is up and running.
