Cheers to RepRap!

My buddy and RepRap co-conspirator, Vik Olliver has been having a string of successes lately. The most recent success was in printing a tiny wine glass. It may seem trivial, but it demonstrates some very important features of his machine: it can do circles, it can make watertight components, and it can do certain overhangs without support material.

Yay!

  1. Awesome! I’m really impressed with the overhang. I wonder what the maximum angle is that you could build out new layers before they fall or drip down instead of sticking to the previous layer.

  2. yeah, me too. i havent heard word on his maximum overhang, but i think it could be as high at 45 degrees.
