Bruce is a replicating 3D printer. It is a modified Prusa Mendel. It also incorporates parts from OpenX and OpenY to give better quality X and Y movement and to make use of the bearings we had lying around. It was built in the first week of April 2011 at the London Hackspace.

Bruce is the son of our first RepRap, Woody.

Current status

Not fully finished

We need to make another hobbed bolt because the current one doesn't grip very well. A guide to making the hobbed bolt can be found in the RepRap Wiki Page for the Wade Extruder

Bruce just before completion - missing a couple of bits!
