Frogmill Instructions « design fabrication workshop Frogmill Model: Frogmill Size: W3050 x D1828 X H419 Material: EPS Foam, Soft wood Interface: Vectric Cut 3D Input: .stl, .3ds, .dxf, .wrl Emergency Stop 1 Place the material orientated as the same as the computer model. Make sure the power of the machines is on. 2 Fixing the material on the wooden base 2.1 If it is a thin material, drill a hole with the material and the wooden base with the same size as the screw. 2.2.1 If it is a thick material, drill a larger hole up to a position that the screw is long enough to screw on the wooden base. 2.2.2 If it is a thick material, you can also screw the material from the bottom of the wooden base. 2.2.3 If it is a thick material and you don’t want to screw from the bottom of the wooden base, you can screw the material on a thin material (like wood) and screw the thin material on the wooden base from up. 2.3 You can also use Gaffa tape to hold the material 3 Enter a low percentage of speed to avoid the mill moving too fast. 5 Use the X+/-. 10 Click ‘Start’.

L’impression 3D et la contrefaçon : comment protéger la propriété intellectuelle - Additiverse L’impression 3D, breveté en 1984, se démocratise depuis quelques années et d’après Gartner, cette tendance va s’amplifier dans les années à venir avec le risque de voir apparaitre la contrefaçon imprimée en 3D. Le développement de l’impression 3D s’explique par plusieurs événements; il y a d’abord le brevet d’origine qui est tombé dans le domaine public; ensuite le développement des matériaux d’impression 3D; à cela s’ajoute les annonces de plusieurs premières mondiales dans les médias comme la fabrication de maisons, de prothèse, d’organe, de vêtements, de voitures et même de nourriture; et enfin le prix d’acquisition qui permet aux particuliers d’acquérir une imprimante 3D à partir de 299 euros. L’impression 3D est aussi présentée comme une nouvelle technologie de la troisième révolution industrielle qui, au niveau mondial, permettra de relocaliser les fabrications au plus proche des consommateurs et par les utilisateurs. Alors comment faire pour lutter contre la contrefaçon ?
8 Tips for 3D Printing with Sketchup | www.MasterSketchup.com I am new to the world of 3D printing. So in this guest article, you’ll hear from expert 3D printer/designer Marcus Ritland from Denali 3D Design. He shares some tips to help you create amazing 3D printed models by designing them in Sketchup. [Update June 2014] Marcus has written a book about 3D printing your SketchUp models! 3D Printing 3D printing is awesome – we can all agree on that. But how does one get started making awesome models for 3D printing? 1. Models must be “Solid” to be 3D printable. Solid, sometimes called “watertight” or “manifold” simply means the model is a complete enclosure. Another way to define solid: Every edge in your model must be bordered by exactly two faces. The most common errors (and the corresponding solutions) are: Stray edges (just delete them)Holes (trace an edge to fill them)Internal faces (delete them) 2. Single faces in Sketchup have no thickness, so we need to simulate wall thickness by simply placing two faces a short distance apart. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

CNC Routers L'impression 3D et l'art, ou comment stimuler la créativité Le 03 mars 2016, par Perrine Varin L’impression 3D en se positionnant comme une révolution technologique, inspire nécessairement les créatifs. Depuis quelques temps, des oeuvres d’arts émergent sous différents volets : reproduction d’oeuvres d’art (sculptures, tableaux), transformation de dessins 2D en 3D ou bien encore des créations. La reproduction d’oeuvres d’art est un des volets principaux de cette nouvelle tendance en impression 3D. L’arrière de ce tableau a également été reproduit. Le musée Van Gogh, à l’initiative de cette démarche, revend ces tableaux 25 000 euros pièce. Outre la reproduction de tableau, il est également possible de reproduire des sculptures en 3D. Redonner vie à des oeuvres ou bien leur ajouter une dimension, c’est également le projet du collectif Render3Dart. L’artiste Olivier Van Herpt, par exemple, produit des vases en impression 3D avec des imperfections, des coulures etc Comme ci ces pièces avaient été réalisées par des humains.

There are few things to remember when turning and milling and drilling. The material, its size along with the cutting tool and its size determine in combination with data provided from machining experience dictate the speeds and feeds along with the depth of cut recommended. Let's start by saying that the empirical data provided for SFM (surface feet per minute) is a recommendation based on historical experience. RPM=CSX4/D RPM = spindle revolutions per minute SFM = surface cutting speed in feet per minute D = diameter of the rotating workpiece Recommended Surface Feet Per Minute (SFM): When in doubt, you can average out the range to yield a number in between. We often turn 1.5" diameter CRS (cold roll steel) and 6061-T6 aluminum rod in the lathe. RPM(steel) = 150*4/1.5 = 400RPM
Acrylic Glass Folding Heater 16 October 2010 Author: Giorgos Lazaridis Acrylic Glass Folding Heater The project began at the 7th of August 2010, and finished at the 30th of November the same year. I ran many experiments and discovered different ways to dissipate heat from water. I tried with copper tubes, with falls, with peltiers and other methods, but i finally came to the conclusion that the best way to keep the water cold is... not to warm it. Here is the heater finished (as always, click on an image to see it in bigger size): The control panel (white box) carries a fuse (for security reasons) and an on-off switch on the side, that turns on the heater, powers the dimmer, powers the fan and also provides power to the water pump simultaneously. Here is an example of my first sculpture that i made with this tool (the piece bellow is 6mm thick): I managed to make extreme bending angles in very small distances, due to the fact that only a narrow area on the material is heated.

Me! | MeshMixer 2.0: Best Newcomer in a Supporting Role? I’ve recently been putting my Ultimaker² through its paces, and one of the pieces that I wanted to try printing was Dizingof’s Joint Stars. It’s a lovely piece of interlocked geometry, but hard to print on an extrusion-based 3D printer due to the large overhanging limbs that start in mid-air. Another was TheRat’s Dragon – which also had some significant overhangs, as well as large thin wings which seemed unlikely to withstand the rigors of repeated passes to build up the height without some extra anchor points to minimize flexing. The generic overhang-angle-based blanket support the Cura and other slicers offer seemed like a poor choice, and one that was likely to result in such extensive coverage that the finished surfaces would be quite badly damaged. Autodesk acquired the Meshmixer package back in the fall of 2011, and after a couple of years, the 2.0 release has finally seen the light of day with some significant new features and an upgraded user interface.
