The major advantage of this technique is the cost of material as FDM printing most commonly uses ABS thermoplastic, which costs fractions of pennies per gram. MakerBot is one such example of an FDM-based printer. The origin of MakerBot The RepRap project was founded in 2005 by Dr. Adrian Bowyer, who can be credited for being the first to target the hobbyist/DIY/early adopter community. The intended purpose of the RepRap project was to be an open source, affordable, self-replicating 3D printer (self-replicating meaning capable of producing all its own parts with the exception of electrical components).
