From RepRap
Jump to: navigation, search


Adrian Bowyer came up with the name RepRap, and Ed Sells came up with the logo. The teardrop shape is the profile of a cylinder with 45o angles above. Our commercial FDM machine can make a 45o overhang without support material, so - if you want a horizontal hole to put a cylinder through - the teardrop profile gets made without support. This is both faster and neater. And for the vast majority of cases it doesn't matter that it is not completely round.

The teardrop is also an important example of the fact that, with this technology, complexity of shape costs nothing.

This is the simple logo in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format. Ideal for printing on large surfaces (posters, megazines etc.)
