3D printing hasn't always just been "3D printing" - the processes and machines we know today started out as part of the open-source RepRap project and by being able to print improvements for themselves and even entirely new machines, over time, only the best approaches survived! Adrian Bowyer initially started the RepRap project and nurtured it until it was large enough to sustain itself from community contributions. Here's why he chose 3D printing for self-replicating machines and what he's up to now!

People are sharing their #RIPPrintrbot Stories
The Rise and Fall of Printrbot.


A sad day indeed, as Printrbot has closed. A message on the web site simply reads:

"Printrbot is closed.
Low sales led to hard decisions.
We will be forever grateful to all the people we met and served over the years.
Thank you all.
Brook"

Many of us have a relationship with Printrbot, be it owning one of their printers, getting solid advice from Brook, or benefiting from some of the innovations they pioneered.

This post will be pinned for a considerable time, please feel free to comment with stories about your Printrbot experiences, or interactions with Brook and the crew at Printrbot. In this way, we can let Brook know that the things he has done for the community have not gone unnoticed, and that he and his company will be missed.

Note: Please do not use this post to ask about parts, how to get service etc., you can email info@printrbot.com for these types of questions.
