Perhaps it isn't a good idea to see RepRap machines as a finished
product in the traditional sense. Printing a support structure is a
matter of software and with this new type of evolution, nobody stops
you from uploading a newer software or develop one for yourself - and
for the development community. There's also nobody stopping you from
modifying your machine to make use of a second extruder, extruding a
support material.

When building your own printer, you get something like a snapshot of
an ongoing development, of an ongoing evolution. And there is no
ending of this evolution in sight.
