RepRap Ltd was established in 2009 and specialises in research and development in self-replicating open-source 3D printing. We use RepRap 3D printers to research and to develop parts for 3D printers plus other useful technologies such as robotics and control systems.
RepRap is a free open-source self-copying 3D printer. You plug it into your computer and it will print plastic parts using your own designs or using designs you have downloaded from the web. It will also print all the plastic parts for another copy of itself for you. For details on the global RepRap Project see here.
