The RepRap project (http://reprap.org) has just chosen the Arduino for its future developments.

RepRap is a 3D printer that makes real solid plastic objects, so you can use it to make lots of useful stuff.  

RepRap can also print most of itself, so - if you have one - you can print another and give it to a friend.  That is to say, RepRap is a self-replicating machine...

Following the principles of the Free Software Movement, RepRap is being distributed at no cost to everyone under the GNU General Public Licence.  

Best wishes

Adrian

thats just awesome smiley i spent gord knows how long looking at the site and watching vids about this project smiley

now i want one smiley-razz and the addition of using an arduino as the core controller of it is even better :d it just makes it more tempting for people to try and build from scratch smiley out of recycled or salvaged parts smiley

i'll be watching this with a keen eye..

Cool!

   I wonder if you can use the RepRap to make the PCB for an arduino clone?
