Reprap parts are now available on www.bitsfrombytes.com and ready to order!
From the Reprap Builder blog post, a complete kit with motors will be available in next days for a 300Â£ + VAT price, it’ll surely help a lot of reprappers who already have all electronic ready and just need all these parts to finish the cartasian robot.
There are some interesting options if you choose to buy the moulded parts kit: you can ask them to be prepared if you do not have necessary tools to drill the holes, and you can choose the resin color to customized your own reprap.
The scope of supply provided for each kit will be a great help too for people who already have some parts (like the extruder) from the RRRF store, and just need to order the cartasian robot parts.
Order will be placed this week to Madrid, hoping it’ll arrive next week to build it before Christmas.
The above RepStrap is made entirely from moulded parts or off the shelf items for the couplings and timing pulleys. I intend to do mouldings of the pulleys to further drive down the cost but thought I should get something up just to let people know it was still happening!
The above RepStrap does not have the Extruder parts fitted but these are as posted before.
On Friday we will have a web site up so people can order any or all of the moulded parts, Iâ€™m still figuring out what the bits actually cost in resin and silicone mould! But expect a full set to be in the region of Â£100 to Â£120.

RepRap shopping website has just appear online, this is the place where we’ll be able to buy parts to begin with the RepRap project.
There are probably few people readier than me to build their 3D-printer, and only few pieces are available on the shop. The shop should be filled on regular interval, so I’ll wait another time to to order all parts to build Las Indias printer. I’ve just ordered the PowerComm board now to test the connection between the Mac and the future machine, there is probably some hacking-fun to have here 🙂
Until then, I’ve just installed RepRap java source yesterday on my computer, it’s lauching well from Eclipse if you follow the simple step-by-step instructions, I just wonder how difficult it’ll be to communicate with the external electronic board, I’ve never used any USB->Serial comm. tools before…
