#RepRap Project - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The #RepRap project started as a British initiative to develop a #3D #printer that can print most of its own components, but it is now made up of hundreds of collaborators world wide.[1] RepRap (short for replicating rapid prototyper) uses an additive manufacturing technique called fused filament fabrication (FFF) to lay down material in layers; a plastic filament or metal wire is unwound from a coil and supplies material to produce a part. The project calls it #FusedFilamentFabrication (FFF) to avoid trademark issues with the "fused deposition modeling" term
