I want to share this new RepRap model that makes a very interesting leap in build simplicity (with I assume reduced accuracy), The RepRap Morgan.

As you can see from the video, its contribution is using a single 'arm' to move the printhead, eliminating the usual X/Y axis scaffolding.

The RepRap wiki page for it is here:

All the printable parts are on github. Github's .stl file viewer looks great

I hope to gather all the printable parts to put one of these together. If you have a printer and can contribute a few prints, that'd be helpful!

Do you have any idea what the total parts cost will be?

Hi Nathan,

The wiki page points to this Bill of Materials link that
looks very detailed.

The single highest price item I saw is the ceramic hot-end extruder
for $59, but the stepper motors and controllers also add up quickly.

Hey Don, my printer is working, and I can help you print out a few parts.  Let me know what you need.  I'm out of town till Sept 2nd, so I can't start on it till then.

Just out of curiosity,
What are the benefits of this printer design beyond low part count?  
What are the drawbacks?
