3D WOOD - Val Gardena. LaserOrigami. LaserOrigami is a rapid prototyping system that produces 3D objects using a laser cutter.


LaserOrigami is substantially faster than traditional 3D fabrication techniques such as 3D printing and unlike traditional laser cutting the resulting 3D objects require no manual assembly. The key idea behind LaserOrigami is that it achieves three-dimensionality by folding and stretching the workpiece, rather than by placing joints, thereby eliminating the need for manual assembly. LaserOrigami achieves this by heating up selected regions of the workpiece until they become compliant and bend down under the force of gravity.

LaserOrigami administers the heat by defocusing the laser, which distributes the laser’s power across a larger surface. Constructable. Pricing guide to DIY CNC mill and router kits.

FoldaRap2 Release status: working In my obsession dreaming of a folding RepRap, I finally started to make one, after 5-7 months of development I'm able to travel with it around the town/country/world :) (adventures pictured on flickr / youtube / ustream)


FoldaRap, The Folding RepRap. The campaign is finished for this time, thanks to the 52 contributors from all over the world !

FoldaRap, The Folding RepRap

If you are still interested and patient, leave me a message and I'll recontact you for the second small batch.The 2nd batch on Goteo is over ! Pre-orders are open on 3D Print Skin :) The FoldaRap is an open-source 3d-Printer, easy to assemble, and most important : foldable to bring it anywhere ! 3D-Printer, RepRap, what's all about ? 3D-Printing is an additive manufacturing process : layers of plastic are successively laid down to produce objects relatively quickly. Hence it is often compared to our traditional printers : with a digital file and a raw material we can make all sort of things at demand (fused plastic replacing the paper+ink), simply by changing the file sent to "print".

The technology of 3D-Printing is not new, but there have been a big change around 2006 : the team of the Dr. FoldaRap, The Folding RepRap Main features : CNC Panel Joinery Notebook. I’ve been collecting clever ways of slotting flat stock together since I first read Nomadic Furniture back in 1999, well before the advent of the accessible hobby-class CNC tools that, today, make manufacturing parts like these pretty easy.

Now, the world is full of people designing models, project enclosures, sculpture, furniture, and all kinds of other cool stuff to be assembled from parts made on laser cutters and CNC routers, and I keep expecting a definitive book or website to emerge that covers the “bag of tricks” in an organized way. So far, I haven’t found it. I may have missed it. Or maybe this article can serve as a jumping-off point. In any case, I think it’s time to open up my file. In presenting this material, I want to first acknowledge my respect for the world’s established and ancient traditions of joinery. Snijlab. Portabee 3D Printer. The Portabee has been the first conveniently portable 3D printer in the world.

Portabee 3D Printer

It is easily collapsible in a matter of seconds and fits into a laptop bag, making it transportable 'on-the-go' - bring it along with you when taking a bus, a train... even on a bicycle in a haversack on your back! And since it's lightweight - weighing in at 2.8kg (6.2lbs) - you can bring it around anywhere with you! And with a slightly larger 'laptop luggage' style bag, you can put the Portabee into the same bag as your laptop computer, along with some feedstock filament, power supplies for both devices (the Portabee uses a laptop-type power supply), some instant coffee sachets, cookies... you get the idea. The Portabee opens up numerous possibilities which were previously impractical - designers and design engineers can now offer to print out a sample of their design solution at the client's premises, on the spot and with applied design changes, for quick evaluation.

This design has been made by one of my friend and I have built one exactly like his. So we currently have 2 machines like this one. This is my first instructable so maybe there will be a couple of things missing, please feel free to ask or post comments. If you are planning to make one like that, please send me picture of the final results so I can add it to this page. Downloads « DIYLILCNC.
