One of the first consumer-level 3D printers was developed in 2007 to be able to replicate itself, hence the name replicating rapid prototyper, or RepRap for short. Here we are showcasing the second generation of that printer, called the Mendel, as well as the latest in house development called the X400.
These 3D printers melt a plastic filament at about 200 C and extrude it through a jet of 0.5 mm in diameter. Layer by layer the model created in the computer then “grows” on the printing bed.
