FoldaRap
FoldaRap2 Release status: working In my obsession dreaming of a folding RepRap, I finally started to make one, after 5-7 months of development I'm able to travel with it around the town/country/world :) (adventures pictured on flickr / youtube / ustream) And now several people have build one : FoldaRap_Hall-of-Builds, even some by sourcing themselves the parts : google-maps (the red dots) Specifications Printed Parts: 33 Non-Printed Parts: 285 (including every bolts/nuts/washers/ferules/etc.) Special Features Foldable ! Community FoldaRap 2.5 new plates arrangement for the v2.5, to ease color associations ;) FoldaRap 2.1 after several tries and suggestions with Xav83, I ended with this simple piece that hold an endstop with a zip-tie :) (for the Z-endstop, or any machine using 20x20 extrusions) FoldaRap 1.0

The shape of things to come: A consumer's guide to 3D printers CES 2013 proved to be something of a coming out party for consumer-facing 3D printers. Sure MakerBot earned a fair amount of attention at last year's show with the announcement of the Replicator, which snagged its share of awards from various press outlets. This year, however, saw a relative deluge in 3D-printing representation, with strong showings from 3D Systems, FormLabs, MakerBot and the cloud-based 3D printer, Sculpteo. Even with so many companies rising to prominence, the dream of truly mainstream 3D printing still feels a ways off -- if that is indeed where we're inevitably heading. These nascent days are an exciting time, with a diverse array of companies and organizations vying to be the first to bring the technology to our homes.

simplement KIT The Printrbot Simple Maker’s Kit is an exercise in 3d printing minimalism. It includes only what is needed to get started in the world of 3D printing. Our Printrbot Simple Maker’s Kit is $349 , and we think you will agree that it is both tiny…and a really big deal. Features of the Printrbot Simple Kit: The 2014 model comes standard with Aluminum Extruder and Aluminum print bed for $3490.1mm resolution (and beyond)100mm cube of printing volume (~4″ cube)Printrboard electronicsPLA only (no heat bed)Ubis 1.75mm Hotend200lb. test fishing line – the X & Y “belts”12v 6A laptop style power supplyOuter dimensions: 7″ x 8″ x 9″~5.25lb total weightSample of 1.75mm PLA filamentFan and end stops includedLaser cut wood parts are standard 1/4″ (6mm) thick

DIY SMD metal stencils – the definitive tutorial In previous posts (here and here) I described my efforts and research to develop a DIY method to make good quality SMD metal stencils at home. I have since experimented some more and I believe I found the best method (so far) to do this with very cheap materials, yielding very good results. Since transferring the toner to the soda can aluminum alloy was the most challenging part, I kept experimenting with different transfer mediums and other ways of possibly facilitating and perfecting the transfer. Cyclops - PreOrder Batch 3 (Shipment Q1-2 2015) Multi-Extrusion Ecosystem Expectations. Printing with a Switching-Hotend is an exciting new frontier, although software and electronics setup are fairly simple and we are seeing great results here at E3D we want to be up-front about the status of this product. We are still developing the best techniques, settings and procedures to get beautiful reliable prints every time. Cyclops takes some extra learning and getting used to and may require a little tinkering and tuning to get awesome prints.

Assembled Printrbot Metal Plus Plus (Model 1412) description: The Printrbot Plus is constructed of powder coated metal and machined aluminum with open platform for fabricating parts up to 10 x 10 x 10 inches using 1.75mm PLA filament. The printer head moves on the X (left to right) and Z (up and down) axes, while the print bed moves on the Y (backward and forward) axis. The Mic 6 aluminum bed is extremely flat and works with an Auto-Leveling Probe with the user-chosen software to calibrate the height of the print head. The Plus comes with a 1.75mm ceramic Ubis Hot End. The printer uses open source software and connects to the computer using the included mini-USB cable.

A problem that is faced by beginners in the field of electronics is that they cannot solder the components neatly on printed circuit boards. One bad solder joint can lead to the project not working. When the project does not work, they eventually loose their confidence and cease to continue making projects.

Fun with 3D Printing: Print a Parametric Peristaltic Pump « Outguessing the machine So, I’ve been playing around with the Lulzbot we got at work. Inspired by emmett’s sweet planetary gear bearing design, I adapted the design to be not a bearing but a peristaltic pump. Like the original bearing design, the pump prints as a single piece – no assembly required! – with captive rollers and no rotary bearing/wear surfaces. The only extra part needed is a length of surgical tubing to thread through the mechanism. OpenSL 3D Printer: A Stereolithographic printer, For Everyone. What is sLAMPS? sLAMPS is an open design for a 3d SL (Stereo Lithography) resin printer. I've been working on it for the last few months and have gotten it to the point where it is ready to print -- once I get a good supply of resin. How does it work?

Encyclopedia of ATX to Bench Power Supply Conversion This guide has almost every ATX computer power supply to bench power supply published to date on Instructables ( as of Dec 2014, about 70 unique instructables). It should be interesting to both those who want to do a conversion, and to those interested in the evolution of a popular topic that has been done over and over on the site. Sometimes the new projects had something to add sometimes not so much. Some of these projects are great, some original and some just so so. I have sorted more or less by year. 3D Printer Filament Buyer's Guide This entry was posted on June 14, 2012 by Alex English. This is intended to be a very basic Personal 3D Printer filament buyer’s guide for new 3D Printer users. Every single point presented here is worth a lengthy post, but this should serve as a top-level summary that might help you determine what plastic filaments will best suit your needs. Additionally, see What Plastic Filament does my 3D Printer Use. For corrections or ideas of other factors worth considering, share them with us at content@protoparadigm.com.
