3D-печать: нейлон, лед, шоколад и другие Шоколадный заяц напечатан универсальным экструдером RichRap-а. В настоящий момент самыми популярными материалами для любительской 3D-печати остаются пластики PLA и ABS. Тем не менее и другие материалы не остаются без внимания. Нейлон Юзер с taulman работая над универсальным аппаратом, который легко можно конвертировать между CNC и 3D-принтером, экспериментировал с Nylon 6,6. Несмотря на все эти особенности, можно успешно печатать нейлоновые детали. ссылка: инструкция по созданию универсального станка с ЧПУ — 3D-принтера включая изготовления горячего конца для печати нейлоном. Прозрачный акрил Этот же парень попробовал печатать прозрачным акрилом. ссылка: часть в инструкции, где говорится про акрил. Лед В 2006 пара канадских профессоров получили исследовательский грант ($173к) на создание конструкций из льда при помощи компьютера. Фигурка в процессе печати. Шоколад и другие В феврале Том Сало опубликовал разработанную им схему шоколадного экструдера. экструдер RichRap-а

RepRapWiki RepRap is humanity's first general-purpose self-replicating manufacturing machine. RepRap takes the form of a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap prints those parts, RepRap self-replicates by making a kit of itself - a kit that anyone can assemble given time and materials. It also means that - if you've got a RepRap - you can print lots of useful stuff, and you can print another RepRap for a friend... RepRap is about making self-replicating machines, and making them freely available for the benefit of everyone. is a community project, which means you are welcome to edit most pages on this site, or better yet, create new pages of your own. RepRap was the first of the low-cost 3D printers, and the RepRap Project started the open-source 3D printer revolution. RepRap was voted the most significant 3D-printed object in 2017.

event competition Honorable Mention 2014 Skyscraper Competition Henry Smith, Adam Woodward, Paul Attkins United Kingdom A cylindrical matrix of super tall structure centered on an electromagnetic vertical accelerator to eliminate the hydrocarbon dependency of aircraft during takeoff. Commercial air travel is celebrating its centenary in 2014 and over the last 100 years aviation has made an unprecedented impact on the way people can experience an interconnected and relatively open world. The future of Aviation is anticipated to rely on energy dense hydrocarbon fuels to provide the power required to make flight possible. An electromagnetic vertical accelerator, utilizing the technological principles developed at CERN’s LHC and maglev train propulsion, provides a method for commercial aircraft to be accelerated to cruising speed using renewable electrical energy sources from ground based infrastructure. The concept is essentially a helical version of the classic urban grid environment.

That being said, all of the cheap options are coming from innovative Kickstarter campaigns. There’s not a lot of cost effective options coming out of the already established players in the industry, but 3D Systems’ newest 3D printer might just do the trick. 3D Systems announced at CES that it’s readying a next-generation Cube 3D printer for launch later this month. “With the next generation Cube, we are giving consumers the best ever at-home 3D printing experience with more options for more fun.” said Cathy Lewis, CMO 3D Systems, “Our growing selection of 3D Apps, designs and lifestyle accessories on makes 3D printing accessible to everyone and our sustainability and safety enhancements makes 3D printing responsible and enjoyable for the entire family.” The new Cube is said to be 1.5x faster, and has a quieter print speed.

Dream Worlds Revealed On Canvas Along with some magnificent dreams, Jacek Yerka finds inspiration for his masterful paintings from his childhood memories: the places, remembered feelings and smells of 1950′s Poland. He studied fine art and graphic design before becoming a full time artist in 1980… and we’re glad he did. His paintings will take you through incredible worlds of imagination, bending reality in captivating and clever ways fit to inspire a novel or film.

CES 2013: New CubeX 3D Printer Spits Out Objects the Size of Basketballs © Jaymi Heimbuch 3D System's Cubify printer made a real splash at last year's CES and is back again at this year's with new machines that offer even more options for designing and creating your own objects. The newest version of the Cubify's Cube printer now prints up to 1.5 times faster than the old model, and offers more materials, including both ABS and recyclable PLA plastics. The brightly colored printers were hard at work on the tradeshow floor showing off what they're capable of. The CubeX can handle printing objects 10.8 x 10.45 x 9.5 inches and can do so in three different printing modes and at three different print fill densities. CNet also notes another desirable quality in the CubeX: "The CubeX might also pull people in for its upgradability. 3D Systems says it costs more than buying a multicolor printer outright, but if you decide you'd like to add a print head to either your single- or dual-color CubeX, the company will send you the necessary parts."

Еще один коптер: часть первая, описание и выбор деталей Итак, наверное многие из вас хотели бы иметь летающую игрушку на радиоуправлении. Самой простой в управлении (на мой субъективный и неопытный взгляд) является квадракоптер. Кроме того квадракоптер открывает большие возможности для программирования — есть платы управления на основе ардуино, можно подключать датчики (GPS, барометр, сонар, цифровой компас, понятное дело гироскопы). Множество постов призывает вас сделать это. Статья является частью цикла: 1. коптер на картинке не мой Итак сразу положу огромную ложку дегтя. Почему? Обобщив я мысленно отложил на коптер 500$ (15 000 рублей). Итак поехали. Лично у меня при первом взгляде на xcopterCalc ощутимо заболели зубы. Основными компонентами являются: -плата управления -передатчик -приемник -регуляторы моторов -моторы -аккумулятор -рама Раму лучше делать самому, т.к. если вы купите красивую текстолитовую раму, то после падения треснувший луч заменить будет не на что. Итого примерно $460. С удовольствием отвечу на вопросы.
