Alpha is a wooden Mendel printer currently placed in room 312 of Hammond building on campus. Alpha uses skeinforge to slice the STl file in to G code, which gives alpha better capability printing out circular parts. Alpha was brought to the 2013 EXPO to be a sample printer to show how does a RepRap printer work. As the Fall 13 semester closes, we did not get to finish adding new electronics. The plan for us was to add on and an Arduino and a RAMPS board. This is not one of our more prefered printers due to the fact it only has one Z-axis motor.
