Reprap : New Generation

…. aaaaaand, here it is:

Mendel, a new generation of Repraps… with numerous advantages of the old, not the least of which is its tool-changing capability.

See? Aren’t you glad you didn’t tool up a factory to bang out copies of the original one etc? They’re obsolete already.

Maybe that’s the killer-app of one-off-fabbing. When technology is evolving so fast that tooling-up for mass-production is not longer cost-effective.
