Success!

A victim of our own, that is...

Blogger only allows 100 blog authors, and the RepRap Builders' Blog has just hit that limit.

However, as you may have seen below, Buzz has set up the RepRap Blog of Blogs here:

http://pipes.yahoo.com/davidbuzz/reprap_aggregation_pipe

that unifies all RepRap Blogs (including this one) into a single stream.

So now you new RepRap Bloggers create your very own personal blog using blogger or anything else that will generate an RSS feed:

https://www.blogger.com/start

Then go to the Blog of Blogs and follow the instructions at the top to add your feed to it.

We'll keep this Builders' Blog running too, of course, for the convenience of the existing users. Likewise we'll keep the Core-Team blog running and feeding in too.

Printed Mendel


So, not complete yet - it still needs electronics, the extruder nozzle, the lasered thick sheets, and a few more belts, but all the printed parts are there.

I'm very impressed with Ed's design - it's very sturdy, compact, and easy to put together. The threaded rod frame is a lot easier to get right, and a lot sturdier than the old set-screw smooth rod deal on Darwin. The bearings seem super smooth, and I have high hopes for the printing speed of this machine.

It's also very portable - you can easily pick it up with one hand and toss it around.

Can't wait to get it running!
