RepRap is a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap can print those parts, RepRap is a self-replicating machine - one that anyone can build given time and materials. It also means that - if you've got a RepRap - you can print lots of useful stuff, and you can print another RepRap for a friend…
If you want to start 3D printing in brmlab and have your own printing account continue to First Time printers HOWTO.
both printers are recently moved to new position, bed equilibration wasn't checked
Filament holder for drevena printer is in plan in the near future
When you want to print first you need to create or acquire 3D model. Than you export your 3D model to .stl , this format is pretty much universal format for 3D. Than you open f.e. slic3r with correct config files and convert .stl to .gcode which is list of XYZ positions and amount of extruded filament. Than you upload .gcode to printer, do preparation and start printing. Everything should be nicely covered in this links:

Brmlab is the place where you can meet other RepRap users, build your own, ask for plastic parts or advice.
Experimenting and improving can be pretty expensive. If you would like to support RepRap project you can donate us on consumption goods.
Polylactic_acid (whole roll, 2.3kg), thermoplastic made from sugarcane or cornstarch used for printing all that awesome things :)
Acrylonitrile_butadiene_styrene, another thermoplastic material
