Hi, I have been using a RepRap to make ephemeral forms out of light for an installation. Thank you to everyone who answered my questions on the forum, it really made the process of constructing the RepRap enjoyable. I am not sure what I can add at the moment in terms of RepRap development, but thought that you might be interested in this modification. I have some Processing code that converts 3D Turtle geometry into GCode which I think is interesting for generating recursive algorithmic forms but it might get a bit complex with solid forms as the form itself could get in the way. I need to clean it up a bit before I post it online, but if anyone is really interested and feeling brave give me a shout and I can send it to you.

Anyway thanks again for all your help, it would not have been possible for me to make this without such a vast resource of schematics, code and inspiration being shared.

There is a bit more information about the installation here.

cheers simon

cool idea!
