About

Richard Horne (RichRap) is an Electronics Engineer, Product Designer, Salesman, and Problem Solver working in a wide range of industries and applications, across many platforms and technologies for the last 20 years.

My interest and passion for 3D printing started in 2009 after visiting the RepRap project website and reading a series of blog posts by another highly dedicated developer, Nophead.

RichRap started blogging, designing and developing with 3D printing shortly after.

After building up my first 3D printer, The RepRap developments and further adventures in DIY 3D printing Blogger Blog started on Sunday 13th September 2010 and has continued ever since. http://richrap.blogspot.co.uk/
