In this Weekend Projects podcast I’ll walk you through the different parts of the hardware on the reprap. You’ll want to take a look at the pdf for parts lists and more detailed info to get started on the hardware for this project. The software is still in development and until then you should be able to get your reprap working as a McWire Mill until the code gets done. Remember this is an experimental research community project! I really like this design. It’s solid, easy to take apart and put together. It’s also relatively transportable.

Sponsored by Ponoko: Ponoko is a new concept that’s perfect for Makeziners. Use it to make and promote your product ideas. Ponoko supplies the digital manufacturing technology and the materials, you supply the creativity. Plus you can sell your product ideas in their showroom. Ponoko is this week’s sponsor of our weekend video podcast.

Make a design, upload it – have it cut on laser cutter and delivered to you.

If you’re one of the first 10 Makeziners to make a product using Ponoko you’ll get shipping for free.

Now *before* you grab up all the free shipping requests please please upload your designs and consider *making a product* a lot of folks out there uploaded designs but didn’t get a product made (yet) that’s ok – but ideally Ponoko would like to see more folks getting something made to take advantage of the free shipping, thanks.

Ok, click here to get going!

  1. Interesting, but seems like too much for a “weekend” project. Maybe it would have been better to wait a few months until the project is a little more mature? If you guys can’t get it going without smoke, that sounds like a bad sign.

  2. This is awesome. I wish I had the time and knowledge to put something like this together. Totally looking forward to the next video!

  3. Does anyone know where I could look into learning about this first? I don’t know much about electronics except some very basic C++ programming and basic circuit theory. It all sounds very interesting, but it looks complex for a weekend project.
