Hero Me Gen2 - OEM & 5015 Fans - Ender 3, CR-10 by mediaman

See update notes below. This supports both the original Creality OEM hot-end as well as the MicroSwiss all metal hot-end. CR-10S Pro owners, here is a Hero Me just for you: If you're looking for a cooling duct and mount for a E3D V6 or Volcano hot-ends, check out my Hero Me Gen 2 for E3D V6 here: and Hero Me E3D V6 Volcano here: In addition to updated single 5015 and OEM 4010 fan ducts, I modified Kelokera's ducts to support dual 5015 fans. There are three parts cooling ducts to choose from: OEM 4010 fan, Single 5015 fan and Dual 5015 fan mount. The dual 5015 fan ducts are configured to have each fan cool one side of the part. For mounting this system reuses existing screws from the stock setup, depending on your choices, you may need additional nuts and bolts (see mounting instructions below). Added photos of sample prints to show what is possible when you have your printer reasonably dialed in. Thats it. WE-R2.4 Six-Axis Robot Arm by LoboCNC.

Ever since I got my 3D printer, I have been wondering whether it was possible to produce transparent parts.

3D Printing Transparent Parts Using FDM/FFF Printer - FennecLabs

While there are plenty of transparent filaments sold on the market, they typically do not produce transparent prints, but rather translucent ones. The difference between transparency and translucency is in the material’s ability to diffuse light. Diffusion may result from several factors, the most dominant one in our case is the inhomogeneity of the print. Under normal settings, the printer leaves small cavities (bubbles) inside the print. Each cavity acts as a small lens (as it is curved) and scatters the light passing through, obscuring any image standing behind the print and making it… translucent! Having in mind that the plastic itself had no inherent constraints keeping it away from becoming the desirable transparent prints, other than the bubbles, I began searching for the right print setting to accomplish the task.

Can't follow up to alt. lasers -- not in Stanford news server (maybe someone else can). Validating Isotropy in SLA 3D Printing. Oct. 12, 2016 in News There are many aspects to consider when preparing an object for 3D printing. Among them is the orientation of the object on the build platform: Is there enough surface area to adhere sufficiently, are unsupported overhangs minimized, and is there enough clearance between objects? On top of all these considerations, there is yet another if the part is intended to withstand any significant amounts of stress: anisotropy.

Anisotropy, in this context, is defined as having physical properties that vary with respect to direction. Adding Screw Threads to 3D Printed Parts. In Downloads , Tutorials At Formlabs, we design lots of functional parts for printing on the Form 2 (our stereolithography, or SLA, 3D printer).

Adding Screw Threads to 3D Printed Parts

These parts include things like internal prototypes used for R&D, jigs and fixtures that will be used on our manufacturing lines, and parts for design reviews before the final part is injection molded from a material like nylon. No matter the application, we often find ourselves needing to combine multiple parts using screws, and now that we’ve released an improved formulation of our Tough engineering resin, the differences between “looks like” prototypes and functional prototypes are decreasing. This article is a guide to using screws in 3D printed SLA parts. There are many other ways to attach multiple 3D printed parts together, but if you need to repeatedly attach and detach components and want robust mechanical fastening, there's no real replacement for genuine metal threads.

Smoothing the layer lines out of filament-based 3D prints is a common desire, and there are various methods for doing it.

3D Printering: Print Smoothing Tests with UV Resin

Besides good old sanding, another method is to apply a liquid coating of some kind that fills in irregularities and creates a smooth surface. There’s even a product specifically for this purpose: XTC-3D by Smooth-on. However, I happened to have access to the syrup-thick UV resin from an SLA printer and it occurred to me to see whether I could smooth a 3D print by brushing the resin on, then curing it.

I didn’t see any reason it shouldn’t work, and it might even bring its own advantages. Filament printers and resin-based printers don’t normally have anything to do with one another, but since I had access to both I decided to cross the streams a little. The UV-curable resin I tested is Clear Standard resin from a Formlabs printer. Mouth Operated Mouse by 0_o. About This project was intended to prove if it is possible to build a pointing device (mouse) for people with disabilities for under 20 USD, using only components which are widely available as well as a 3D printer.

Mouth Operated Mouse by 0_o

The result is a basic mouth operated mouse which can be connected via USB to nearly every PC. The case allows to mount it on standard tripods using a 1/4 inch screw. Functionality The user moves the cursor by using a mouthpiece which basically works like a joystick. Hardware/Software. Acrylic glue works really well with polishing PLA plastic□ : 3Dprinting.

It was just back in March that German electrical automation company Festo unveiled two of its latest robots inspired by animals – a crawling/rolling spider and a flying fox bat.

Robotic cuttlefish autonomously scuttles through pipes

Now, it's taken the wraps off BionicFinWave, which moves like a cuttlefish. Along with the polyclad marine flatworm, which was another inspiration for the robot, the actual cuttlefish moves forwards and backwards through the water via two continuously-undulating fins that run along both sides of its body. The largely 3D-printed BionicFinWave is equipped with two such fins of its own, although they're made out of highly-flexible silicone. Each fin is moved by nine integrated lever arms, which are connected via a flat crankshaft to one of two servo motors housed within the robot. Those motors operate independently of one another – this lets the two fins undulate at different speeds and in opposite directions, allowing the robot to turn left or right on the spot.
