3D printer manufacturer German RepRap announced today that they have shipped their 1000th NEO desktop 3D printer.

"The demand for the NEO overwhelmed us. We didn't expect such a positive reaction to the small, compact and assembled 3D printer, which fits easily onto a writing desk", says Manfred Karl, German RepRaps Head of Sales & Marketing.

Further, the NEO is sold via online-shops from Conrad Electronic, ELV, Media Markt, Reichelt and Saturn. The company is currently looking for resellers in US and UK.

This seems to be pretty expensive for what it offers. Do they provide full support in case of problems ? Is the filament free to use of any kind or their proprietary filament must be used ? More than this, this printer takes away all the fun of tinkering with printer kits and learning technology.

That's nice. I think they should post the design files or stop selling this machine under the "RepRap" name. One of the things that define a RepRap is being open design, hardware, & source. Their only contribution to opennesss that I've found is a couple minor things to Marlin firmware.
