The T-Rep is a prototype printer built primarily from 80/20 T-Slot extrusion and 1/8" aluminum plate. It has made the most progress among the ideas for building a RepStrap out of Extruded Aluminum.

This machine is under heavy development. It is currently (as of March 18, 2010) in a third design iteration, and about to start #4. Once the design begins to stabilize, I'll add more information.
