According to Fab@home,” It was one of the first two open sources for do-it-yourself (DIY) 3D printer (the other open-source DIY 3D printer was RepRap. The Fab@Home 3D printer utilizes syringe tools to make objects from multiple materials. The first version of the Fab@Home print head had two syringes. Later versions of Fab@Home 3D printers had more syringes going up to eight syringes that could be used simultaneously.  Fab@Home 3D printers could be used with several materials, including epoxy, silicone, and food like chocolate, cookie dough, and cheese. Hod Lipson and Evan Malone of the Cornell University Computational Synthesis Laboratory 2006 started the Fab@Home project. Before the release of open-source 3D printers, the 3D printer market was dominated by industrial 3D printers. The goal of Fab@Home was to make 3D printers more popular and accessible to common people. The project was continued until 2012. The project was considered complete when the rate at which do-it-yourself 3D printers and consumer printers were distributed exceeded the rate of industrial 3D printers.¨
