When you download the RepRap distribution from Sourceforge here you will get a file called reprap-nnnnnn-yyyymmdd.zip. The nnnnnn is the name of the current RepRap machine ("mendel" at the time of writing), and yyyymmdd is the date of the release. When you unzip that file it will create a directory called reprap-nnnnnn-yyyymmdd. This page tells you what's in that directory.

Licences and README

There are three files in the directory for these:

LICENSE
README
README.txt

The README.txt is the same as README; it's just there because Windows likes to have file extensions to hold its hand when it's deciding what to do with things. These three files are pretty self-explanatory.

Programs you run

There are two of these, one for Linux and one for Windows:

reprap
reprap.bat

These are both scripts. When reprap is run on Linux, and when reprap.bat is run on Windows, they configure the computer correctly then run the RepRap host software that allows you to build things in your RepRap machine.

The RepRap design files

Java files

These are the files that you need to run RepRap on your computer. The main one is:

reprap.jar

This is the actual RepRap Java program. There is then a bunch of Java libraries that RepRap needs:

RXTXcomm.jar
j3d-org-java3d-all.jar
j3dcore.jar
j3dutils.jar
swing-layout-1.0.3.jar
vecmath.jar


j3dcore-d3d.dll j3dcore-ogl-cg.dll j3dcore-ogl-chk.dll j3dcore-ogl.dll


libj3dcore-ogl-cg.so libj3dcore-ogl.so librxtxParallel.so librxtxSerial.so mendel
