RepRap 3D Printer - Lowest cost self-duplicating 3D printer.

Why RepRap Open Source 3D Printer?

Desktop 3D printers have been in market for many years, mostly started from RepRap Project. The main goal for RepRap designs is to use mostly plastic and some other affordable materials, which results such a cheap price. all plastic components can be printed by the printer itself, with that you can build another printer easily, that's where the name Replicating Rapid Prototyper comes from.

There are many versions of RepRap 3D printer in the market, we are going to introduce two of the best and most affordable, high-precision 3D Printers.

They are Mix G1 Plus and Prusa i3 Plus.

How does RepRap 3D Printers work? 3D Printing is a process of building up a three dimensional solid object layer by layer from any digital model with material as plastic filament.

What can it be used for? I would say it's limitless, it can be used it rapidly prototyping in architecture, industrial design, automotive, dental and medical industries, fashion design, footwear, jewelry, eye wear, education and almost all engineering field. Use your imagination, it can be a handy tool for you to make anything and make it real.

What make us different? Mix G1 Plus and Prusa i3 Plus results the best printing quality in the current 3D printer market. And provide great control experience like any other thousands dollars 3d printers. With manual control mode, you can easily test your printer's three dimensional movement, it's a useful mode for debugging process.   SD card printing mode can be a great benefit for people who doesn't have a spare computer to connect to a 3D printer all the time, because the printing process normally takes hours to finish.

What kind of softwares/ firmware that we are using:

  • Software: Repetier (Repetier)
  • Firmware: Sprinter
You can store all your printing files into MicroSD card and inserted into Baboi box, you can select the files and It would automatic read your G-code and start printing after it reaches the printing temperature.

Manual Control Mode: This mode is perfect for open source 3D printers, You will find it very useful when you first time setting up your printers or when you fix hardware problems. It's an easy-to-use hardware testing function.

Why we doing Kickstarter?

We are having a difficulty on shipping lead time, most of customers from Mixshop have to wait for two weeks to get their 3D Printers shipped, In order to solve this problem and bring faster shipping to our customers, we need a massive production to shorten this lead time into 3 days and cut the selling price off around 10%. So that customers can get their printers as soon as they order it and with a cheaper price. Without this funding, we won't be able to make it possible.

Risks and challenges

Once the final quantity of each printers is estimated, we will be ready to contact our contract suppliers for massive supply.
We have another company works with us to handle the assembling and packaging so we that we can mainly focus on printer's quality control.
Our Electronic Manufacturer is having difficulty on finding one of the electronic components which might extend our lead time , but we still have 100 electronic board in stock. But for whatever reason they cannot complete their contract we still have backup companies to replace them.
