RepRap Buildparty Berlin

Another RepRap buildparty is going to take place in Berlin, Germany on the 18-19th of February (18-19-02-2012). Ten groups will have the opportunity to build their very own 3d printer, get it working, and take it home with them.

Under the guidance of Josef Prusa, Kliment Yanev, Joachim Glauche and Ruben Lubbes, we’ll build ten printers of the latest Prusa Iteration 2 variety. More info on Prusa iteration 2 at Prusa Iteration 2

After building the printers, we’ll look at control and design software, basic troubleshooting, and where to get designs, ideas, and help. At the end of the workshop, every participant or group will go home with a working printer.

Here is a video of an earlier workshop organized by the same team:

Workshop data:
Time: 18th and 19th of February 2012, from 10.00h to 19.00h on both days. Impatient builders may continue past 19h on Saturday if they wish to, but that should not be necessary.

Location: Change in venue, switch to IN-Berlin, Lehrter Str. 53, Berlin, Germany ( info)

Price: 850€ per printer. The number of participants per printer is not limited (though 2-3 is ideal).
