Freedom Of Creation | Freedom Of Creation develops Tree-D Printing in Wood | Pioneers in 3D Printed DesignsWe have been preaching about the sustainability of 3D printing for a long time, but it is still quite difficult for most to understand the bigger picture. As all should know by now our transportation of the future will be limited to just emails and our stock is reduced to just files stored on our hard drives. However, the base materials still need to be created from scratch and they still need to be shipped all over the world. We have been very motivated to find alternatives for this that truly democratize creation.
Every Friday we’ll be meeting one of Cubify’s Featured Artists and offering a special weekend promotion. This week we’re chatting with Rob Elford about his store on Cubify, Rob Elford Cubed, what inspires him and some advice he has for aspiring designers. Rob is an award winning designer who trained at the London College of Fashion with the a Head of the British Fashion Council scholarship and went on to win the Preziosa Young Award this year.

MakerWare 2.0.1 is now available with some important fixes to the recent release of MakerWare 2.0. Our goal is for everyone to understand these updates we make and how we make them, and what we’re working on next. Here’s what’s new: ● Several people had some problems with installation, particularly on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). Those problems have been fixed. ● Some Windows XP users were also having issues getting MakerWare to detect their MakerBot.
Først en liten guide til hvordan man spleiser sitt eget belte til z-aksen. Merk opp lengden du vil ha og subtraher nødvendig overlapping, jeg tok ca 4 cm. Ta en stykk stasjonær båndsliper og kjør i vei. Først den ene siden.
NEWS: Come to the Inside 3D Printing event in New York City ! The event runs from April 22-23 2013. We have arranged for reprappers (that's you!) to get a special 15% discount on admission - quote the code RRP15.
There have been numerous attempts to print conductors. Fab@home, Ed Sells and myself have all tried it previously with very limited success. Whilst I've been able to print a basic circuit from solder, we were unable to achieve the resolution to produce anything but the most simplistic circuit board. Forrest Higgs and others have tried to identify a useful non-metallic conductive material but conductivity has always been fairly poor. Months ago I blogged about using Nickel Carbonyl powder for exactly this purpose. What I didn't blog about was an experiment I did mixing the nickel with a low melting point alloy.
Even though 3D printers have become mainstream and costs have declined, most cannot create a fine level of detail when printing. For rapid prototyping, you can fabricate one yourself such as the High Resolution DLP 3D Printer. Homemade yet still turns out impressive results.
There are a host of 3D printers out there, but none are as simple and inexpensive as the Printrbot created by Brook Drumm .
