Arduino Controlled CNC / 3D Printer Hybrid Repetier or Marlin Firmware for Arduino Mega implement G2 an G3 circular interpolation so they are good to use for CNC and 3D Printing. However they have limitations regarding pure CNC instructions such as pecking an other GCode's.

Flux 3D: A cheap, modular 3D scanner, printer and laser engraver A Taiwanese team has developed the Flux 3D, a cheap all-in-one 3D printer, scanner and laser engraver that, thanks to its modularity, also leaves room for further expansion. The device also allows users to create, share and download designs directly from their mobile devices and connect to the printer via Bluetooth for more convenient operation. View all It wasn't too long ago that buying your own personal 3D printer would set you back a small fortune. The $679 Flux picks up where these two left off, giving you arguably the best bang for your buck yet with a multi-purpose printer, scanner and laser engraver that's not only cheaper than the rest, but which can also be further augmented by adding separate modules as they are developed. To switch from printing to scanning, you simply remove the plastic base and expose the 1.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, which can be used to scan small objects as they sit on a rotating platform. The team's Kickstarter pitch video can be viewed below. Source: FLUX
momus CNC | benchtop DIY router plans | home page Comment fabriquer ses filaments d’ABS pour son imprimante 3D à moindre cout Mon imprimante 3D devrait arriver d’ici une semaine, et je recherche déjà des techniques pour obtenir des filaments d’ABS à moindre coût. Lors de mes recherches, le projet Lyman Filament Extruder revenait souvent, mais il restais encore trop onéreux. Le projet de DeltaPrinter se base sur le projet de Lyman mais en utilisant que des éléments courants du commerce et une pièce imprimée en 3D. Le système est composé d’un tube de 10mm en acier inoxydable avec une ouverture dans lequel un foret à bois va faire l’office de vis sans fin pour pousser les billes d’ABS vers l’extrémité. Là, un bloc d’aluminium fait la jointure avec une tube de cuivre de 15mm de diamètre avec un embout percé et calibré au diamètre voulu. Le bloc d’aluminium est chauffé avec deux résistances chauffantes 230V à la température de 200°C. Le foret servant d’entrainement est monté sur un moteur essuie-glace qui tourne en continu à faible vitesse.
3d printer kit : smartfriendz - SmartfriendzShop Rob|Arch 2016 | Workshops Interactive 3D PrintingSOLD OUT University/Organisation: Institute of Advanced Architecture Catalunya, Harvard GSD & University of Sydney Description: Robotic fabrication processes enable designers and architects to explore the boundaries between digital and material worlds. Beyond optimization criteria or parametric design, new design strategies such as generative design and collaborative design are enabling new ways of approaching material exploration through robotics. Typically, the outcomes of a fabrication process are predetermined, however, with the introduction of sensors, design and fabrication process may be interrupted by real-time feedback. Location: Pier 2/3 Walsh Bay Duration: Tuesday 15th March – Thursday 17th March 2016 10am-5pm. Workshop Co-Chairs: Alexandre Dubor, Gabriel Bello Diaz, Guile Camprodon, Dagmar Reinhardt, Rob Saunders, Marjo Niemelä, Dylan Wozniak O’Connor, Susana Alarcon, Rod Watt, Samantha Horlyck & Kate Dunn.

OpenBuilds Part Store HOW TO BUILD YOUR VERY OWN 8×8 LED MATRIX | Circuit Specialists Blog Today we will be starting our adventure into the deeply complex, yet totally incredible world of LED Matrices. This post will be the first of an entire Arduino Matrix Programming series by Circuit Specialists. Make sure you subscribe to our facebook, twitter, and newsletter to keep yourself updated! First things first, what the heck is an LED matrix, and how does it work?? Simply put, an LED matrix is a grid of lights arranged into rows and columns. By arranging the anodes (positive side) and cathodes (negative side) in a particular way, we can achieve a matrix and call upon each LED individually by sending high and low signals from our arduino device. Led matrices come in two arrangements. The difference between these two configurations determine how you would call on a specific LED. Conversely, with common-row cathode (right) the current sinks (negative voltage, ground) are attached to rows A – D and currents sources (positive voltage) runs through columns 1 – 4. Step 2: The LEDs
How to Make a Three Axis CNC Machine (Cheaply and Easily) A salute to those who have laboured through to this point (and to demonstrate that it is reproducable) Here are some pictures of other peoples machines. Photo 1 - Chris and his friend put together this unit; laser cutting the parts out of half inch acrylic. Not only does it look super it must weigh a ton. Photo 2 - Sam McCaskill has finished his desktop CNC machine and it's looking really really nice. Photo 3 - Angry Monk's - With MDF pieces cut on a laser cutter and drive converted from toothed belts to threaded rod Photo 4 - Bret Golab's - Bret has completed his and gone through the extra step of getting it setup to work with Linux CNC (a task I attempted and was foiled by complexity). (If you have built one and would like it featured here, please send me a PM and we can arrange for the sending of photos)
Blog January 22nd, 2015 by bdring It’s ORD Camp time again this weekend. Every year I have done a gonzo build of some type of CNC machine. This year I only had a few hours to spare, so I wanted something simple. These are never meant to be practical machines, just conversation starters. This was hacked together and programmed in about two evenings with stuff I had laying around, but working at Inventables means there is a lot of cool stuff “laying around”. The stepper motors are driven with some high resolution stepper drivers. L = 150mmA = 90mm I have my CAM software output circles as multiple lines, so circles don’t need to be dealt with. Here are a few more pictures taken at this weeks Beer and Making session at Inventables. The shield has a solenoid driver that I was going to use for pen up, but I never got around to that. Here is a video of it running. A few people have asked if the motors could be moved to different locations. October 26th, 2014 by bdring September 11th, 2014 by bdring
Students Invent A New Method Of 3-D Printing, Using UV Light This summer, the Southern California Institute of Architecture handed out its first Gehry Prize, a thesis award named in honor of the legendary 83-year-old architect (and his recent $100k donation) to husband and wife duo Liz and Kyle von Hasseln. Their project, Phantom Geometry, is not a single design but an entirely new production methodology that uses light from an off-the-shelf projector to cure a special resin into complex, adaptable models. It was developed in SCI-Arc’s Robot House, where students can experiment with six state-of-the-art Staübli robotic arms under the guidance of Peter Testa and Devyn Weiser. Think of their system as you would a 3-D printer. The thing that fascinated the von Hasselns about the system was that it allowed them to interrupt the process and change the model as it was being printed. Typically in digital fabrication, you submit a fully resolved model which emerges, perfectly replicated, a few hours later.
How to make a mini milling machine- manual or CNC! I think one of the best things about tools is that they can be used to make more tools! I decided to build a miniature milling machine for machining plastic parts, creating wax patterns and for drilling really small precise holes. I also wanted to design it so that I could convert it to CNC for machining circuit boards and for doing repetitive work. The finished mill has a 11" x 18" footprint and is about 19" tall. The X axis travel is 6 1/8" The Y axis travel is 6 1/4" The Z axis travel is 2 1/4" If there are any questions about any of the drawings or something just doesn't make sense just ask! Follow along and build one for yourself!
