The RepRapPro Ormerod 2 3D printer is a Replicating Rapid-prototyping machine, or RepRap for short. It is an open-source derivative of the equally open-source RepRap Project which was started at Bath University, UK, in 2004. The machine uses a process known a Fused Filament Fabrication to build 3-dimensional objects in a range of plastics.  This process enables the user to create almost any shape which can be modelled on a computer, including some which could not be produced by traditional manufacturing techniques at all. Many examples of the objects people have made with Ormerod and similar machines can be found can be found in the online repositories listed here.

The RepRapPro Ormerod 2 is one of the most versatile 3D printers available. Its primary design goals were to offer a printer which is easy to expand in functionality, which is low-cost, which is fast to replicate, and which is fast and easy to assemble and commission.This model builds on the already established designs and technical advances which have undergone brisk development and heavy testing since the RepRap Project‘s inception in 2004. This is one of the machines that RepRapPro uses for production in its own factory.
