In 2004 Dr. Adrian Bowyer of Bath University conceptualized the RepRap 3d printer, which originated the booming desktop 3d printing industry. In this essay I attempt to explain the philosophy of the RepRap and reasoning behind its engineering. The many layers of the RepRap are unraveled. It´s history and processes detailed to enlighten the reader as to what the RepRap is and how it influenced the current 3d printing trend in maker culture.
