MeshLab is an open source, portable, and extensible system for the processing and editing of unstructured 3D triangular meshes. The system is aimed to help the processing of the typical not-so-small unstructured models arising in 3D scanning, providing a set of tools for editing, cleaning, healing, inspecting, rendering and converting this kind of meshes. The system is heavily based on the VCG library developed at the Visual Computing Lab of ISTI - CNR, for all the core mesh processing tasks and it is available for Windows, MacOSX, and Linux. . The MeshLab system started in late 2005 as a part of the FGT course of the Computer Science department of University of Pisa and most of the code (~15k lines) of the first versions was written by a handful of willing students. The following years FGT students have continued to work to this project implementing more and more features. The proud MeshLab developers are listed here.

Studio Basic netfabb Basic is available to anybody, it is free just like in free beer, and runs on Windows, Linux or Mac. netfabb Basic is not just a viewer, it provides mesh edit, repair and analysis capabilities to everyone already being or aspiring to become part of this fantastic, growing, creative, high-tech industry called Additive Manufacturing, Rapid Prototyping or 3D Printing. netfabb Basic is available and is just one click away. Its compact size of only a few megabytes allows a quick download, an easy installation and the handling of STL and slice files within seconds.

Automatically clearing the bed and starting the next print (Videos+Instructions) - Fully automated production! So when visiting the huge CNC shop where they build my hotends I saw an awesome auto-feed lathe that you load up with bar stock, it turns a workpiece, parts it off whereupon it falls into a little chute, and it then pops out the back of the lathe into a little basket for collection. The guy running the machine shop says he just fills the machine, presses "go" and goes home for the night! Well, I had massive engineering jealously right there. If he could do it, then why not me on my little RepRap?! Another motivation was that as well as running E3D with David I am also a full time teacher of Engineering at a high school.

Control media using hand gestures with Flutter Smartphones and tablets are spoiling us for our other devices. It's so easy to swipe, tap, and gesture our way through our mobile lives that we sometimes get frustrated with more traditional tech like laptops. Flutter aims to help solve one small problem in a fun way -- playing and pausing music quickly -- and it works great. Here's how to use it: Designing a 3d printed EXOSKELETON and how to 'grow' electronic parts on it! Printing Exo1: How to design your exo-skeleton and how to grow electronic parts on it from leaving the planet on Vimeo. video Designing a 3d printed EXOSKELETON and how to 'grow' electronic parts on it! Originally posted on [ David Gann from explains a workflow for producing a body fitted exoskeleton from freely available resources. Additionaly a method of growing mounts for electronics on it is explained: Continuing with my thoughts and experiments about bringing together wearable computing and a generative or ‘symbiotic’ design processes, I ended up doing a 12 minutes video tutorial.

heekscad - Free CAD based on Open CASCADE There is a fork of HeeksCAD at However, I have been working on this Google Code version quite a lot, recently. I have gone back to my older undo code and HeeksCAD is now quicker and easier for me to understand. STL Volume Weight Calculator In two lines: Vital stats for 3D printing objects. Quickly estimate the cost of printing your 3D object! What is STL ? .STL is a file format that is popularly used for representing 3D object information for 3D printing applications.

Solid Iris Technologies It seems like yesterday, when we started developing a small freeware rendering application with a very weird name, a pure invention, Kerkythea. The renderer back at that time was rather simple with respect to the interface and it was mainly a photon mapping based renderer. Even with this - rather primitive - form though, it has strong supporters and the renderer is embraced by SketchUp community.
