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 There is a fair amount of debate as to whether or not current copyright application is becoming outdated.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

3D print- impression 3D

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. You can check out more images from this demonstration, as well as other demonstrations at the Guia Repsol flickr photostream. 3D Food Printing at Madrid Fusion | Robots In Gastronomy | Robots In Gastronomy 3D Food Printing at Madrid Fusion | Robots In Gastronomy | Robots In Gastronomy

Un laboratorio en la cocina Un laboratorio en la cocina Juan G. Andrés - Viernes, 28 de Junio de 2013 - Actualizado a las 06:50h VARIOS participantes en los laboratorios ciudadanos de Tabakalera son desde hace escasos días los nuevos inquilinos del antiguo edificio de Bomberos, que en breve pasará a albergar las oficinas de Donostia 2016. Ambas entidades impulsan esta iniciativa, bautizada con el nombre de Hirikilabs, "un prototipo" o "prueba a escala" de los futuros laboratorios de Tabakalera, según anunció su responsable, Josean Llorente, conocido como @josianito en las redes sociales. La presentación del proyecto, que persigue impulsar la cultura digital y la sociedad en red, tuvo lugar ayer en la primera planta del inmueble, concretamente en la cocina que utilizaban los bomberos donostiarras, convertida ahora en un taller de construcción de mobiliario básico. Durante el verano los talleres enseñarán a crear máquinas recreativas, impresoras 3D, escáner y fresadoras · Hoy, último día. · Hoy y mañana. · Durante todo julio. · 4-5 de julio.

(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. Printing Printer resolution describes layer thickness and X-Y resolution in dots per inch (dpi) or micrometers (µm). Finishing Processes Lamination 3D printing 3D printing

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
Although the downloaded Marlin firmware already has a standard calibration for the axis resolution, you will have to go through this step if you want a precise printer. Here you will tell the firmware the steps per millimeter that your machine actually needs. This value depends on the steps per revolution of your motor and on the size of the thread in the driving rod of your axes. By doing that we make sure that the movement of the machine actually corresponds to the distances in the g-code. Knowing how to do that will allow you to build a CNC-machine of your own with independence of the component types and sizes. In this case, X, Y and Z axes have the same threaded rods so the calibration values will be the same for them (but that might not be the your case if you use different components for the different axes). We will have to calculate how many motor steps are needed to move the carriage 1mm. The pulley radius. The steps per revolution of our Stepper motor. For the Z axis: EWaste 60$ 3DPrinter
Recyled plastic for 3D print

Recyclebot This is a port under construction from Appropedia [1] and [2] where the project is housed and still underway. The full parts list for the metal components of v2.2 are available on Thingiverse. The fully automated RecycleBot is documented in detail here for v2.3 and all the Arduino code is up on Thingiverse. More information: Christian Baechler, Matthew DeVuono, and Joshua M. Following an open source model, the RepRap, has made it feasible for 3D printing to be used as for small-scale manufacturing to aid sustainable development as discussed in 3-D Printing of Open Source Appropriate Technologies for Self-Directed Sustainable Development. Completed waste plastic extruder for RepRap filament. History Information about the first recyclebot can be found here: Recyclebot v1.0. The design for the waste plastic extruder (Recyclebot v2.0 and v2.1) shown below is heavily influenced by the Web4Deb extruder, which extrudes HDPE for use as a growth medium in aquaponics.
