The FoldaRap is an open source 3D printer based on the RepRap project.
It is foldable to bring it everywhere!
The FoldaRap project was born from a personnal need, following the “release early, release often” rule of Open Softwares, it raised many interests, and from the demand it became a product. Now its success is giving birth to Open Edge.\r\nIt was an experiment and a manifesto about how an open-source project should be done, then I used alternative ways to fund the first two batches with crowdfunding plateforms. And now we are also applying a distributed manufacturing strategy to give back to the community and keep the philosophy of the original RepRap project while scaling up.So the “bleeding edge” after which we are is not necessarily technologic, but more about other ways to make things, alternatives for a new society.
