Is the workshop for 3d printing include the idea someone was kicking around of helping to build 3d printers, namely rep raps? I was really interested in the idea of making a cheaper controller for a rep-rap or any other 3d automation. So I figured I'd check the interwebs for something already in existance.

Still working on delivering their kickstarter campaign, but this is an option:
SmoothieBoard
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lo ... on-control
http://smoothieware.org/smoothieboard
https://github.com/Smoothieware

It's also great because it's a completely open source project. Both the firmware and hardware are available now. (So we could theoretically have boards fabbed and build them ourselves).

If not used as an off the shelf item, I would love to port this project to the TI Tiva chipset and add Wifi support! Maybe this should go under the projects forum instead... thoughts?
