To date, the RepRap project has released four 3D printing machines: "Darwin", released in March 2007, "Mendel", released in October 2009, "Prusa Mendel" and "Huxley" released in 2010. Developers have named each after famous biologists, as 'evolvability' was a key part of the concept when the first RepRap was released into the wild. While they are not meant to compete with the top end commercial machines, the development and democratisation of the technology is running hand-in-hand with new models and paradigms for designing, collaborating, and funding.

3. This technology works for all kinds of digital images, even x-rays. If you happen to have fifty cameras that you can click in sync, you could even obtain 3D captures of very dynamic action shots such as dirt thrown in the air, smoke, a batter in mid-swing, a water balloon bursting, flames etc. You could capture any of those events blurred over a set period and then print them to create something extremely artistic. This kind of technology is becoming more and more embedded all the time, and already there is a 3D scanner app for the iPhone.
