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.
DIY high resolution 3D DLP printer (3D SLA printer) : 3d resinsStarting this project I knew nothing about 3d resins, but soon I found that it is a world on its own. So for now I will do the subject the injustice of trying to put my findings so far in a single page. I hope to write a more detailed instructable about this in the upcoming weeks. Here are just some basics and findings.Maker SHED - Bay Area Maker Faire 2011Who better to patrol the grounds of Maker Faire than R2-D2? The R2 Builders Club is a national organization dedicated to creating and distributing plans for replicas of the robots of the Star Wars universe. The club claims that sci-fi DIYers around the country have built hundreds of these bots, and not just R2s; I spotted plans for the R3-A2 and the R6-D7, among others. The plans, now free to anyone, were compiled with meticulous research and a little help from the George Lucas empire, which provided some official robot sounds and let members photograph original props. Materials, though, are not free.

How To Start A HackerspaceNovember 12, 2012 AT 7:44 am Hi, I’m Eric Michaud. From the first time I visited a Hackerspace, I knew that I had to do everything I could to get Hackerspaces everywhere. I first experienced Hackerspace C-Base in Berlin, before there was an NYC Resistor, a Noisebridge, or a HacDC. I came back to the United States and found community with like minds – and then I co-founded Washington’s first Hackerspace HacDC and founded Chicago’s first Hackerspace, Pumping Station: One.
