Last weekend the office here at CASA was taken over by the RepRap 3D printer build. The PayItForward team – a group of altruistic people who have RepRap machines, printing parts and gifting them to people who want to make a RepRap machine with the requirement that once the 3D printer is running, they print off a set and pass them on in the same fashion – came in and 24 hours later we had a 3D Printer.
