The thought occurred to me yesterday, after discussing the possible design and construction of a 3D printer with a colleague at work who already owns one which he built from a kit. To each his own of course, but being a diehard engineer, I figure that building a RepStrap would be way more fun, and much more of a learning experience. Looking around the RepRapWiki it seemed a WolfStrap would be the most reuseable way to go, since I have an old TV cabinet in my garden shed which forms a perfect sturdy wooden frame for what I wish to create. On top of that, it already holds at least four drawer guides which can be reused for the various translation movements!
