RepRap (short for Replication Rapid prototyper) is a British project founded in 2005 that has the goal of producing a 3D printer capable of printing another, functioning 3D printer. RepRap is also the name branded on the printers produced through the enterprise.
In a nutshell most home built or kit build 3d printers.
Sorry though everyone knew this silly me.

That makes more sense, I thought it was a Republican rapper or something.


Though, the self replicating printer sounds like the back story for the Terminator movies.


Sounds like there should be lots of great stuff there!

The above link has more details .
Yes should be a fun time kind of like cabin fever for 3d printers.
Figured some of the CF regulars with 3d printer may be interested.
Not a far trip for me closer than CF.
One of the events is a 3d printed pine wood derby race.

We are inviting you, the 3D printing community, to come and exhibit your 3D printers with us, from small and simple to large and exotic. Come to show off your 3D printers in action, show off the cool things you have created with your 3D printers too. Come be part of the biggest 3D printing show on the East Coast!

And if you don't bring your own 3D printing stuff to show off, come to see other's printers in action. Come to see the things they printed, come to see the things they are printing!

Spaceships & rockets
Droids & blasters
Working violins & guitars
Furniture
R/C cars, drones and planes
Replications of artifacts
Artworks of all types, sizes, shapes and colors!

About an hour and a half drive for me Not bad . about the same as Kinzers.
a little more restrictive than CF. a space is a table 4ft x 30 inches and it is highly recommended to bring your own extension cord and power strip if you are exhibiting  a printer. Also not allowed to bring in your own food and drink, ugh but doable. I hope to go need to find out a few more details  will probably do Saturday to avoid hotel fees. I know a few from the area have printers Dave reeves and Stan  Shires come to mind.  Not too far a ride for any of them . .

Just purchased my exhibitor ticket . Anyone else planning on going ??Over the last few weeks I watched a few videos on MRRF several of the well know 3d printing personalities were there . It will be interesting to see who showes up for ERRF. Apparently folks from 18 countries  showed up to MRRF . Just 10 days to go.
