It sounds very interesting; I'm quite impressed with what you group has gotten up to, especially with the plasma cutter, LifeTrac, and Liberator.

I'm very interested in bootstrapping RepRap into other kinds of fabrication machines, starting with a hybrid CNC router / 3D printer and a pick=and-place PCB stuffer and oven fabrication chain. Eventually I'd like us to work our way up to a 5 foot by 10 foot (1.5m x 3m) CNC router.

This is our current working sketch: [] which has been kicking around in my head for about a month.

Would you like to RepRap to co-host the project on our wiki and on our forum? We've got a pretty mature hardware base and a pretty mature community. (And, to be honest, a bit of media presence, which never hurts.)
