GADGETS3D announces today its new RepRap printer G3D (based on Prusai3) and project "3D printer in every school".
Based in Poland and Hong Kong, Gadgets3D supplies RepRap 3D printers and parts, and it is also the manufacturer of desktop 3D printer Zortrax. The new small sized, low-cost G3D 3D printer is specially designed for schools, small businesses and individual customers.

Is there an application or something that a school needs to do to be considered for this 3D printer?

Good thing! I built a Prusa i3 using the G3D electronics kit and it was a pleasure to have everything so well put together. If this printer is up to their usual quality it should be great.

"is specially designed for schools, small businesses and individual customers." so just about everyone. I can't see anything that isn't open source on this machine.

johnoly99: It is free to use and I suggest for you to use google "reprap trademrk" and you have perfect answer: "The teardrop, "RepRap", "Fused Filament Fabrication" and "FFF" are also covered by the GPL. Anyone can use them freely in any way they choose, but they may not be registered as trademarks or restricted in any other way. You may use them with significant extra words and graphics in trademarks and the like, just as you would be able to with words from the dictionary." http://reprap.org/wiki/RepRapGPLLicence Which means anyone and anywhere can use RepRap name, Due of they selling RepRap it is good idea that they named it RepRap.

john- I think you should read more about trademarks, open source etc :) If you want put any trademarks/patents etc. the open source idea will dont have sense! BTW: I've never seen TM sign with the RepRap name :)

I do believe the word/brand reprap is trademarked by Mr. Bowyer?
