The RepRapPro Ormerod complete 3D printing kit offers extensive versatility and functionality in an easy to assemble kit of parts. 3D printing enables electronics and mechanical engineers to create quick-turn-around prototypes and save months in the design cycle.
Using a process known as fused filament fabrication (FFF), the Ormerod builds 3-dimensional objects in a variety of colours and plastics. FFF can create almost any shape which can be modelled on a computer, including some which could not be produced by traditional manufacturing techniques at all.
The RepRapPro Ormerod is a single colour 3D printer however, the Ormerod head is fundamentally designed to work with a tri-colour head and an upgrade kit will be available soon.
Full open-source self-replicating RepRap
New 32-bit Arduino-compatible Duet electronics enable control via a web-browser
Wiring loom for simple plug-in connection – no soldering
IR probing for self-aligned printing – no bed adjustment required
Build surface: PCB-heated bed to reduce complexity of assembly and to ensure parts do not warp
Computer interface: USB
X-carriage: Three Z-adjustable deposition head mounts; one head supplied
Motion: Linear ball bearings on X and Y axes, Igus low friction bushings on Z axis
Pre-soldered electronics with built-in microSD card slot for standalone printing.
Enhancements to the printed parts to improve the ease of assembly of the X and Y axes
The Reprap software should run on a fairly low powered PC, so long as it can run at least Windows XP or higher (Windows 7 and 8 is fine), or Ubuntu 12.04 or higher. However, the faster the better.
Under Mac OS X, 10.6.8 is the minimum requirement, which means the Intel processor-based Macs. This excludes all the old PowerPC (G4, G5) Macs, which have a different architecture, so the software won't run on them
The RepRapPro Ormerod is shipped as kit of parts containing all the components required to get you printing. Full assembly is required
All printed parts
All hardware (threaded and smooth rods, screws, nuts, washers, belts, bearings etc)
