Product Tour | Onshape Onshape Part Studios You can create and edit component geometry in Onshape Part Studios. The modeling workflows are very similar to traditional CAD. However, there are new capabilities: Part Studios allow you to build multiple parts together. "As a SolidWorks user, I was immediately comfortable with the layout and tools provided. -Pete Yodis | Design Engineer OneDarwin Overview RepRap 1.0 "Darwin" is a rapid prototyping machine that is capable of making the majority of its own component parts. Instructions and all necessary data are available completely free under the GNU General Public Licence from this website to everyone. As RepRap 1.0 "Darwin" can copy itself, once you have one you can make others for your friends; or if they have one you can ask them to make one for you. Darwin consists of a frame made from rods and printed parts. Specification The RepRap 1.0 "Darwin" machine has the following characteristics: Bill of Materials (BoM) The Get a RepRap kit page will give you several options on how to get hold of the bits you need. Click here for automatically generated BoMs. Before ordering parts please check here for notes and variations. Alternatively, the current parts lists, as well as links to suppliers where available are listed below. What order to do things The first thing to do is to get the software you will need working.

Otherworldy CAD Software Hails From A Parallel Universe The world of free 3D-modeling software tends to be grim when compared to the expensive professional packages. Furthermore, 3D CAD modeling software suggestions seem to throw an uproar when new users seek open-source or inexpensive alternatives. Taking a step apart from the rest, [Matt] has developed his own open-source CAD package with a spin that inverts the typical way we do CAD. Antimony is a fresh perspective on 3D modeling. Functionally, Antimony represents objects as a graphical collection of nodes that encode both primitives and operations. Current versions of the software are available for both Mac and Linux, and the entire project is open-source and available on the Githubs.

Lasersaur Manual Index -- Laser cutters are systems for applying electromagnetic radiation to a work piece. When done like a boss this will cause the material to disintegrate in the area of application. The challenge is doing this in a controlled manner and gaining full control of the energy density at any point in time. To accomplish this control the Lasersaur uses a combination of robotic actuators and sensors, laser resonator, optical beam delivery, and control software. Specs: overall dimensions: 1700x1170x360mm (67x46x14.2")work area: 1220x610mm (48x24")resolution: 0.1-0.03mm (240-840dpi)maximum seek rate: 12000mm/minmaximum feed rate: 8000mm/min Mechanics The mechanics comprise both stationary and dynamic parts. The linear motion assemblies for the x- and y-axis roll directly on the aluminum extrusions. The drive mechanisms are based on timing belts and stepper motors. Electronics The system is controlled by the Lasersaur DriveBoard in conjunction with two GeckoDrive G203Vs. Optics and Laser

From Maker Faire: Jetguy’s Ulti-Replicator 2 #3DThursday #3DPrinting September 25, 2014 AT 8:00 am This year, with over 70 tents to the 3D Printer Village “Township,” selecting just a few projects to highlight is quite the challenge. I was thrilled to run into Vernon Barry “Jetguy” whose custom 3D printer mods and fixes I have been following (and benefitting from) for years. He has the latest version of a custom build design (above) that is built almost entirely out of Adafruit CNC and extrusion gear! While I was pretty excited about this project, the colossal machine below was the show-stopper — a v2 of the ambitious predecessor he brought last year, this one was printing, and printing beautifully! Jetguy’s Custom 3D Printer Designs. This is the successor to the Ulti-Replicator demonstrated last year. Read More. Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit!
