In the last quarter of 2013 David Price helped a group of youngsters at a school in Bracknell build their own 3D printer using a Thames Valley Rep Rap Prusa kit, South Hill Park, a local arts and media centre, made a video documentary of the 13 week project

Over on the GG Bo has started a discussion regarding noting possible changes to be rolled into R4. This is a summary of his main points. There are pics and follow on comments on the thread.
I copy them here for future reference - Mike.
Bo's Post follows:
So since i cant see any place to come with suggestions before the next round i will do it here... i suggest everybody else to use same thread so it is not spread over multiple and gets lost
Ian posted the following in connection with a question about settings for R3 part printing with a R1 or R2 TVRR.
I am reposting here to help populate the R3 guide.
- Number of perimeters - 2
- Number of solid top and bottom layers - 3 and 3
- Layer thickness - 0.3mm
- First layer thickness - 0.3mm
- Infill Density % - 0.3 (30%) should be fine. Use rectilinear fill - it's the fastest printing; the honeycomb fill doesn't support top layers as well.
We don't need to duplicate info that is available elsewhere.... I thought of this as I updated the 'buying solder' page on the Reading Hackspace wiki. Just post a link, of course this does rely on the external site continuing to exist. Maybe there is a way of easily importing a duplicate of such pages?
Editors Note: (MikeTheBee) This is a copy of a post Ian made over on the GoogleGroup. (https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en&fromgroups#!topic/tvreprapug/EOPBcjttilI%5B1-25%5D)
I don't usually post about prints, but this one is a bit different, so thought it might interest the community to show what you can do with 3D printers.
