Jonathan's CSC 3D printer page

4 cup anemometer

A few years ago RS components gave me a Rep Rap Ormerod 3D printer (kit) and I have had a lot of fun exploring it to create a range of science based projects.
Some of these are shown on this page and in the articles (PDF's etc.).
The printer is now quite old (but still works ok) ... there is now a huge range of 3D printers available.

video on 3D printing by RS Components ... I am in the video :-)
