Cubify’s new Cube 3 includes a fascinating new feature: extremely simplified material loading, made possible only through the development of a new way to handle plastic filament. The new cartridges are quite different from any generic spool you’ve seen before. They’re sealed to prevent dust and dirt from contaminating the filament (which eventually clogs up your extruder). They include a tube running from the spool housing to the attachment point, meaning your filament is enclosed during its entire journey from spool to extruder. The attachment point is much like an earphone jack. Just insert it into the Cube’s extruder and you’re done.

Lost with personal 3D printers? Here is an overview of the market Personal Do-It-Yourself 3D printers are among makers’ all time favorites. In the last several years, Makerbot or RepRap, the most popular devices on the market, have highlighted the incredible possibilities of 3D printing technologies. It’s exciting to see more and more people playing with personal 3D printers and discovering this technology.

The Mega Plush Monitor companion - Projects & Prints - Formlabs Community Forum Hey guys, I just wanted to share my latest little 3d print project. I got the idea from a fellow artist over not he 3D printing page on Facebook and decided I had to have a good at making my own. So I posed this guy to hang on the side of my monitor, sliced him up and printed him.

3D printing An ORDbot Quantum 3D printer. 3D printing or additive manufacturing[1] is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes.[2] 3D printing is also considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes). A 3D printer is a limited type of industrial robot that is capable of carrying out an additive process under computer control. The 3D printing technology is used for both prototyping and distributed manufacturing with applications in architecture, construction (AEC), industrial design, automotive, aerospace, military, engineering, dental and medical industries, biotech (human tissue replacement), fashion, footwear, jewelry, eyewear, education, geographic information systems, food, and many other fields.

UV-CAST™ Keypad Coatings for Electronic Devices DYMAX UV-CAST™ light-curable coatings are designed to be molded onto plastic films and act as an outer layer of interfaces, including keypads. UV-CAST™ light-curing keypad coatings offer design flexibility while performing to stringent interface requirements including most common chemical resistance, impact, abrasion, and pencil-hardness specifications. The UV-CAST™ molding process enables instant fabrication of various contours, shapes, and textures. Set-up costs are minimal compared to similar performing keypads that require injection molds.
