RepRap Squad Hits 79 Countries!
We have come a long way since the inception of RepRap Squad. We have now helped over 20 schools and classes. Our site has been viewed and translated regularly by almost 80 different countries. There has been over 30 3D printers built and countless parts, mods and prototypes. RepRap Squad continues to grow daily and we now offer a Twitter account for direct access for new news and help for makers all over. (Twitter: @REPRAPSQUAD) Our goals are many and always held to the highest of standards.
I wasn’t sure of what RepRap Squad would become when it was started but I wanted to be able to help the reprap community and come up with new ideas to challenge the minds of makers everywhere. I’m happy with the outcome and look forward to being able to help more schools and people within this industry. As of recently people are starting to be aware of the great effects that 3D printing will have on our future lives. Within the next few years 3D printers will become reliable appliances that will be used in our daily lives. We will be able to explore ideas and inventions in a real life format with a click of a button. We will download products instead of going to Wal-Mart to buy simple plastic items.
Today we lay the seeds of tomorrow. I’m glad to know that I am a part of something that will be ground breaking as well as something that will be remembered in the future. Our goal as a group is simple and can be described with 1 word, “help.” Help others realize their ideas, help people get access to 3D printers, help others to become masters of their own printers and to help the community as a whole in anyway we can. The 3D printing community is innovative and consists of some of the brightest people i’ve ever met. You helped to create this industry for what it is today and you will guide the industry into whatever it may become in the future.
So, go print a whistle or an action figure of yourself but, no matter what you do always remember to “help” someone else. Wether its building a printer from the ground up or configuring their printer to print Mr. Jaws, always be ready to give back as that is what this community is built on.
Soon as per requests RepRap Squad will be releasing some clothing that you can purchase. Below is an early view of what one of the t-shirts will look like. So if your interested in getting one, let me know and I will get your size and quantities. We are going to start out with some shirts and hooded sweatshirts and eventually offer other accessories.
