An initiative

I am thinking about taking this 3D printer movement to next level. I believe we may innovate and invent a lot more, when we can start building our own prototype at low cost.  But need some honest feedback(s). Here are my thought(s)/initiative(s),

1) I have already started printing out another set of printed parts for a reprap.

2) I will replicate those using metal die casting (Aluminium/brass).

3) I would like to provide kits to educational institutes only for material cost + labor only. I don’t want to gain any profit for this.

4) I would like to train key personnel at educational institutes on building and operating reprap.

PLEASE  broadcast this post to key personnel / educational institutes and feel free to leave comment with suggestion and contact info.

Goblin. Needs a bit more clean up. I broke it's legs while preparing it for photo session. Fused it back using gas lighter

Rerap First Print

Video

Very first print of the Reprap Prusa Mendel i2 build. We printed out 20mm Cube object to check calibration. Output turned out to be fantastic for very first print. We will calibrate it further soon. The dimension of the print was 20.85 mm X 20.04 mm X 19.84mm (LxWxH)
