RP Building

I have had the please of building a Rapman 3.1 Rapid Prototyper (3D printer) in my job position as an Art, Design & Technology Technician. 
This is a cool thing to build, but for me what tops it is that these machines are becoming the way forward for many top Stop motion Animation studio's.

The build is finished and I am in the commissioning stage.
At first the main board was not talking to the X Y& Z axes but a few tweak's later and it has burst into action,
Just needs a bit of calibrating before my first test run.


  1. i know this is not a recent post but i have just seen it, you are so lucky to be able to work with a R.P. paranorman has really shown what they can do!

    1. It's only a basic model....just a computer controlled plastic piping gun.
