RepRap Family Tree
by watsdesign, published
Did you ever wonder about the history of the reprap ?
It's a visualization of the evolution of the reprap and some other 3d-printers over time (with 150+ projects now, and updated every 2-3 months).
"In the core team, we see what I will call a punctuated animal model of evolution while the larger reprap community is a very vibrant bacterial model." -Forrest Higgs (16-01-2009), about the evolution model of the reprap.
Why oshw is great ? Because it's alive muahaha !

1) Choose a file (.ai, .svg, .pdf, .png) and print-it-yourself or buy a poster at Zazzle if you prefer http://bit.ly/k5GbJJ
2) Look at what have been done in only some years.
3) Make the futur.
But remember : never expose a printer to bright lights (especially sunlight, which will kill it); never get it wet; and never feed it after midnight ;P
