Circuitos impresos con RepRap

One step closer to self-replicating machines

To many in the hobby 3d printing community, printed electronic circuitry is a kind of ‘holy grail’. RepRap advocate Rhys Jones is one of the pioneers of DIY printed circuits that’s been making serious progress on this front since we last checked in on him.

He’s modifidied his RepRap printer to have two print heads: one for plastic, and one for metal. The results of his latest update are shown above. He starts by printing the plastic substrate, with cavities for the components and the tracks. Components are then manually placed into their holes, before the metal tracks are printed in place.

This is still a work in progress but it is very encouraging to see hobbyists getting one step closer to self-replicating machines.
