FoldaRap P2P Edition
The most interesting reward of this campaign, also probably the quickest way to have your kit! All you need to build the lastest version of the FoldaRap, excepted the printed parts. Find a local reprapper to add them to your kit ! (hint : with probably more than 40 000 machines in the wild, there must be one near you, or we can still have them printed separately)

Workshop around the world
We find a date that arrange everyone to invite me (for a week-end to a full week), and I personally come with my machine to help you build and learn to use the FoldaRap(s) you may have funded !
