Student Creates 3D Printer Controlled by Raspberry Pi Mini PC He aptly calls it the Raspberry Pi 3D Printer The Raspberry Pi 3D Printer You all know about 3D printing. Probably. Definitely, if you're reading this. You also probably know about the Raspberry Pi credit card-sized mini PC, given how often I've written about it. W02 rear wing « Formula 1 technology and art Mercedes W02 – New rear wing for Barchelona test on February A new rear wing was tested at Barcelona on February , with four horizontal endplate slits (No1) instead of three and triple flap separators instead of two (No2 arrow shows the central one while the two others are at the sides of the endplates). The central separator now has no role on moving the second flap like happened before . The second flap , which is now smaller , has a boxy part close to the endplates (No3) which I suspect to house part of the flap angle adjuster mechanism and also to play role on moving the flap . Like this:
Creating Depth of Field Even though we’re creating digital renders in a 3d world, we need to keep in mind that we are still imitating a real world camera lens. Cameras and human eyes have something called ‘Depth of Field‘ (or ‘DoF’), which makes objects in the background and foreground appear blurry. When used correctly in your artwork, it can draw the attention to the subject and make the scene more aesthetically pleasing. When used wrong, it can seem like another overused tiresome effect.

Untether Your 3-D Printer With a $35 Raspberry Pi A RepRap controller running Pronterface on a Raspberry Pi. Photo: WDZaphod While most people still have trouble setting up an inkjet printer on a wireless network, a group of intrepid IT hackers are making big strides with far more advanced machines, using the tiny Raspberry Pi microcomputer to untether laptops from their 3-D printers. Zachary Bales is an undergraduate studying electrical engineering and physics at Cal State Long Beach.

Software - Products 3DCrafter™ 3DCrafter is a real-time 3D modeling and animation tool that incorporates an intuitive drag-and-drop approach to 3D modeling. Complex models can be constructed from simple 3D primitives, or created using 3DCrafter's Shape Building Tools. Modeling tools are provided to deform, sculpt, and paint 3D shapes. Creating an animated scene is as simple as positioning the shapes within your scene for each point in time in your animation. 3DCrafter will ensure that the resulting animation runs smoothly. Your animation can be stepped through a frame at a time, viewed in real-time, or recorded to a Video (AVI) file so that you can distribute your creation.
