3DPI Interviews Dr. Adrian Bowyer for Series on RepRap’s 10th Anniversary | #opensource #3DPrinting #3DThursday @3dprintindustry
Celebrating RepRap’s 10th anniversary year, 3D Printing Industry are publishing a series of interviews with kickstarters and luminaries of the DIY 3D-printing village of makers, beginning with an interview of Dr. Adrian Bowyer from the RepRap project:
Today is the official anniversary of RepRap. At 3D Printing Industry we are marking the occasion in a series of interviews with those closely linked to the project. If you’ve used a desktop FFF 3D printer the chances are that the RepRap project has influenced the design of the hardware or software.
I asked Dr. Adrian Bowyer a few questions about the origins of the RepRap project, the need for open source in 3D printing and what’s next for the industry.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
