RepRap "Manuel" Alpha 01

Hi, this is a work in progress. :)

Not sure about the RepRap naming but "Manuel" is my father's firstname (the good spelling in french would normally be "manuelle"). I still need to post something more detailed of course, but basically : This is a 3D Printer moved by hand.

Only one stepper is used to extrude bioplastic over the hotbed, which goes down under the workbench (Z Axis).

You move the extruder with a pantograph by following a model on the right.

The hotbed goes down by turning a wheel under the workbench (at each end of layer).

The extruder will be warmed up at 200C° and the hotbed at 60C° with some electronics (still). ;)

Bonne journée à tous et toutes. :D
