Open Source 3D Printing Now More Accurate Than Proprietary Printers Too

Posted on: September 27, 2011 - 11:53 By: vik

A milestone has been passed in the Open Source control software for 3D printers, allowing an NZ$800 RepRap to produce higher resolution output than an NZ$25,000 commercial 3D printer using the same basic printing technology. The RepRap is also printing faster than the proprietary offering and uses cheaper, multi-sourced consumables.
