Our mission is to inspire, share and nurture the 'desktop factory' revolution, one person, one 3D printer and one desktop at a time.
At Build3dprinter.com, we embrace diversity together to
create a place for mass innovation for everyone in the 21st century!

Build 3D Printer The aim of this project is to produce a pure self-replicating device not for its own sake, but rather to put in the hands of individuals anywhere on the planet, for a minimal outlay of capital, a desktop manufacturing system that would enable the individual to manufacture many of the artifacts used in everyday life.
The self-replicating nature of RepRap could also facilitate its viral dissemination and may well facilitate a major paradigm shift in the design and manufacture of consumer products from one of factory production of patented products to one of personal production of un-patented products with open specifications. Opening up product design and manufacturing capabilities to the individual should greatly reduce the cycle time for improvements to products and support a far larger diversity of niche products than the factory production run size can support.
