Artificial limitations: How will copyright hold up to 3D printing? As content moved into the digital realm, copyright found itself facing tremendous new challenges. Digital content may require resources to create, but it requires nearly nothing to be replicated. Slowly but surely, our media lost all limitations with regards to distribution. First the written word fell to word processors, photocopiers and printers. Photography followed suit. We have reached a point where it is more difficult to avoid information spread than it is to actually spread it. There is a fair amount of debate as to whether or not current copyright application is becoming outdated. As increasingly large amounts of data are transferred between people all over the world, it is becoming more and more difficult to lay claim to exclusive rights over specific content. As copyrighters struggle to deal with this new world of free media, there is new beast knocking at its door, one that might just be a game changer: 3D printing and scanning.

The next Napster? Copyright questions as 3D printing comes of age The Penrose Triangle is as elegant as it is impossible—much like M.C. Escher’s drawings, it presents a two-dimensional illusion that the eye interprets as three-dimensional. The task of effectively creating this illusion in three dimensions, without resorting to hidden openings or gimmicky twists, seemed daunting until a Netherlands-based designer named Ulrich Schwanitz succeeded in printing the object recently. But Schwanitz, who posted a YouTube video of his design achievement in action, wouldn’t share his secret with the world. Within weeks of Schwanitz’s “discovery,” however, a 3D modeler (and former Shapeways intern) named Artur Tchoukanov watched the video and figured out how to recreate the shape. The same day the story ran, Schwanitz sent Thingiverse a DMCA takedown notice and demanded that the site remove Tchoukanov’s design (and a related one) because it allegedly infringed Schwanitz’s copyright.

3D Printing Expands How You Should Think About Copyright: The Super 8 Cube Edition If you pay attention to intellectual property (IP) issues on the internet, there is probably one concept that is on your mind more than any other: “fair use.” Fair use has been at the forefront of debates surrounding internet IP issues for a good reason. It is a way to answer the question “when is it OK to copy something that is protected by copyright?” In some ways the prominence of fair use is a historical fluke tied to the technical abilities of computers on the internet. That is because jumping to a fair use analysis skips over a critical question: does copyright even apply? There is a reason that many people picked up the habit of skipping over this question in the internet copyright world. But 3D printing expands the scope of what can be easily created and disseminated with a computer attached to the internet. The Super 8 incident is a good opportunity to walk through this process. That is true of other science fiction inventions in movies. 3D Printing Expands How You Should Think About Copyright: The Super 8 Cube Edition

C'est une première dans le monde médical. Le petit garçon souffrant de graves problèmes respiratoires, des chercheurs américains ont imprimé une mini-attelle et l'ont directement implantée dans le corps de l'enfant. L'intervention s'est déroulée aux Etats-Unis, mais le logiciel est belge. Kaiba, c'est le nom du petit garçon, le premier être humain a recevoir un traitement fabriqué par une imprimante 3D. Six semaines après sa naissance, il n'arrivait plus à respirer, sa trachée s'étant refermée. April Gionfrido, la maman du petit Kaiba confie avoir envisagé le pire : "On avait plus peur que jamais, on ne savait pas s’il s’en sortirait vivant ou s’il y avait des chances de le guérir." Comme il n'y avait pas de traitement, des chercheurs du Michigan ont alors proposé d'utiliser une nouvelle technologie : l'impression en 3D. Aujourd'hui Kaiba a 18 mois. Un logiciel belge L'impression prend une journée complète car la machine fabrique l'objet couche par couche, grâce à un rayon laser.

Grâce à l’impression 3D, le bon vieux plâtre devient moderne Grâce à l’impression 3D, le bon vieux plâtre devient moderne Se casser le bras, c’est déjà pénible. Mais il faut encore plus supporter un plâtre, gros, épais, malaisé, et qui ne sent pas très bon au bout d’un moment. Fort heureusement, l’impression 3D est arrivée. Jake Evill, fraîchement émoulu de l’Université de Wellington, a imaginé un nouveau type de plâtre baptisé Cortex, qui cumule les avantages. Non seulement il est léger, aéré, et pratique (on peut le masquer sous une chemise et prendre une douche avec), mais encore s’adapte t-il parfaitement à la blessure de son utilisateur. Le volume de nylon, la matière utilisée pour le Cortex, est plus dense au niveau de la blessure.
3D printing food at home in 15 years Nov.20, 2012 In a Twitter interview "#AskFuturist" today, followedby1d asked:"When will we be able to download food from the internet?" Cisco futurist Dave Evans said:"Not food, but the recipes to print food. At the latest Food Inspiration Days 2012 (Eindhoven, the Netherlands, October 2012) TNO gave a demonstration on 3D food printing. (Image credit: OmroepBrabant) Watch the video below "3D Printing: now printing food too" made by TNO Research. The 3D printing method can be used to manufacture complex multi-material products, simply by using a separate print head. According to TNO, food printing offers a range of potential benefits: The technology can help to convert alternative ingredients such as proteins from algae, beet or even insects into tasty products that are not only good for health but also for the environment. TNO is working on the next generation of machines: Print Valley, the factory of the future. Source: TNO 3D printing food at home in 15 years

Each year, Madrid Fusion beings together the most innovative names in the gastronomic world. This is the place where the most hard core gastronomic pron gets revealed to the world, where the mad culinary scientists try to convince us that eating things like Seaweed Chlorophyll is a good idea. courtesy of Guia Repsol This year saw the debut of 3D printing joining the ranks of the gastronomic toolbox, with Chef Paco Morales showing off a modified Makerbot Replicator 1 in front of an inquisitive audience. Chef Paco Morales utilizes the machines to both print innovative crockery prototypes as well as to experiment with the deposition of food into these complex plates. The avant-garde chef discussed his future ambitions to continue investigating with the technology, and perhaps soon, we might be able to enjoy 3D printed creations in his restaurant.

(September 2015) 3D printing in the term's original sense refers to processes that sequentially deposit material onto a powder bed with inkjet printer heads. History Terminology and methods CAD model used for 3D printing By the early 2010s, the terms 3D printing and additive manufacturing developed senses in which they were synonymous umbrella terms for all AM technologies. With the maturation of the technology, several authors had begun to speculate that 3-D printing could aid in sustainable development in the developing world.[15][16][17] General principles 3D model slicing Modeling 3D printable models may be created with a computer aided design (CAD) package or via a 3D scanner or by a plain digital camera and photogrammetry software.

The Best 3D Print Troubleshooting Guide The Best 3D Print Troubleshooting Guide A quick glance at the types of issues covered in the guide Simplify3D announced that they are releasing their visual troubleshooting guide for 3D printing. This guide could prove to be invaluable to anyone who’s a beginner, fine tuning their printer or software settings, or frustrated with annoying print issues. Simply put, this is the best 3D printer troubleshooting guide I’ve seen yet. Anyone who has had experience 3D printing will tell you that there is a common list of problems that nearly everyone experiences at some point. While the solutions listed to these common problems do include specific settings for the Simplify3D slicing software, the company was nice enough to also explain the common reasons for these issues, allowing you to utilize this for whatever software you are currently using. A common problem with a number of possible causes listed I really like how Simplify3D has approached this, and have noticed a few tweaks I could probably make on my own machines! Caleb Kraft
Laboratoire 3Dnatives : Test de l'imprimante 3D Delta BCN3DR Puisqu’il faut un début à tout, le laboratoire 3Dnatives teste aujourd’hui sa toute première imprimante 3D Delta, la BCN3DR du fabricant espagnol BCN3D Technologie. Au contraire d’une imprimante 3D FDM classique, dite cartésienne, une imprimante 3D Delta se distingue par un plateau d’impression immobile et circulaire, une structure haute et allongée ainsi que trois bras venant déplacer la tête d’impression dans l’espace. La BCN3DR n’étant disponible actuellement qu’en kit, nous avons dû remonter nos manches pour s’attaquer à l’assemblage de la machine. Du côté des caractéristiques et performances, le constructeur annonce une épaisseur de couche d’impression de 75 microns et une vitesse de déplacement de 500mm/s. Elle est capable d’imprimer des objets d’un volume maximal de 180mm cubes à base de filament PLA uniquement. La BCN3DR est une imprimante 3D Delta développée par BCN3D Technologie 1. Rien de très sexy donc mais un bon point positif car tout y est. 2. 3. 4. Jusque là tout va bien
This project describes the design of a very low budget 3D Printer that is mainly built out of recycled electronic components. The result is a small format printer for less than 100$. First of all, we learn how a generic CNC system works (by assembling and calibrating bearings, guides and threads) and then teach the machine to respond to g-code instructions. After that, we add a small plastic extruder and give an overview on plastic extrusion calibration, driver power tuning and other few operations that will bring the printer to live. Following this instructions you will get a small footprint 3D Printer that is built with about an 80% of recycled components, which gives it a great potential and helps to reduce the cost significantly. On one side you get an introduction to machine building and digital fabrication and on the other side you get a small 3D Printer built out of reused electronic parts. EWaste 60$ 3DPrinter

Chroniques d'une imprimante 3D - ekito people ekito people Un beau matin, ekito a décidé d’acheter une imprimante 3D. Non pas afin d’imprimer des armes (quoique, pour achever une bonne fois pour toutes le modèle waterfall, on pourrait se laisser tenter), mais « parce que c’est cool ». Donc direction le site de RepRapPro, et commande dans la foulée d’une imprimante RepRapPro Tricolour Mendel, ainsi que de trois rouleaux de plastique aux couleurs de la société. Bien entendu, l’imprimante a été choisie en kit : c’est moins cher, et c’est plus marrant. Quelques semaines (mois) plus tard, le colis arrive enfin, et mon collègue Bert Poller et moi nous portons volontaires pour le montage de l’imprimante, avec Mélanie Bessagnet comme photo-reporter principal. Rouleaux pour l’imprimante Kit RepRapPro Le premier jour a été consacré au montage de la structure principale de l’imprimante, ainsi que la mise en place du plateau chauffant. De même, certaines photos du manuel de montage en ligne ne sont pas réellement explicites. Erreur de montage J2 – Résultat

Leonardo - the prototype P3Steel printer - was designed and built by Irobri in April 2013, after attending a local Maker show in Zaragoza, Spain. The main frame structure, built from laser-cut 3mm steel, is extremely strong and simple to assemble, and eliminates the need for several printed parts due to the use of steel parts instead of threaded rods for the "Y" subframe (as in the original Prusa i3 and many of its variants).

One of the challenges when getting started with 3D printing is learning the terminology. Depending on your background, the various mechanical and project names may be complete gibberish. Fortunately, most of the ideas are pretty simple when you take a step back. For example, let’s look at the Bowden Extruder. In its simplest form, when someone refers to a Bowden-style extruder, what they mean is that there’s a flexible tube guiding the filament from the extruding motor (cold-end) to the nozzle (hot-end.) The Direct Extruder The direct extruder is more common, and it’s easier to explain the Bowden variant in terms of its differences. (Source: wiki) The diagram above illustrates the workings of a typical, DIY extruder. (Image source: The Bowden Extruder For a Bowden extruder, we modify the diagram to be more like this: …and in practice, you’ll see something like this: (Image source: thing:29834) …with the tube connected to the hot-end.
