Replicating 3D Printer (Snappy)

If you bought one 3D printer could you print parts to make more 3D printers? The Replication Rapid-Prototyper Project (RepRap) is a group of 3D printer enthusiast who explore this possibility. Dr. D-Flo decided to build one of the most extreme RepRap designs known as Snappy. Snappy is a budget printer coming in at under $300. This low cost is afforded by using a 3D printer to print out 80% of the parts. Furthermore, Snappy requires almost no fasteners because the pieces snap together. Revarbat is the creator of this ingenious design. But how well does Snappy work? Check out the video above!
