MakerScanner - open source 3d scanning My first Marvin... | Maker Tale | 3D Hubs Talk So I've just joined 3D Hubs and printed my first Marvin! He is such a cute little fellow, and I wanted to make sure that he would look the best he could on my keyring. I am a jewellery designer, so I am quite used to working on a small scale, even in 3D printing. I used my Ultimaker Original +, which I finished building at the beginning of January. Since then I have been printing a lot, trying to tweak the settings for the organic and cellular shapes I usually print. Perusing the forums for advice has been amazingly helpful, and the most pertinent tip I learned about was to consider the model when choosing a resolution, as higher res does not always mean a better print. Layer Height: 0.1mm Shell Thickness: 0.4mm Retraction: enabled Bottom/Top Thickness: 0.6mm Fill: 0% Print Speed: 20mm/s Temp: 210C Bed Temp: 70C Filament Dia: 2.85 Flow: 100% No Support or Adhesion I also enabled combing and set the z-hop at 0.075

DIY 3D scanner Cool. Splinescan used to have something like that as well, sans flash. I'm not sure about the technical details, but ?javascript? He may be open to approaches from people who are up for coding it or who want to play around in the splinescan source to see how things work, dunno. Once he hits a major release, I expect he may open up to co-developers who can add sexy/important features like David-scan has. I reallly want to install things like the flash thing, only without the server imploading. I'm lining up a test server to install a virgin mediawiki and phorum install on in order to test out stuff like this without rolling out unknown code on a primary server. I think it will be nice to support patch fuctionality, so that users can upload 'patches' to Darwin, Mendel, post-Mendel (Eiffel?) Patches would be clearly and politely labeled as such, and we'd manually check them into the master release after user/dev testing.

Wound Up - Coffee Filled Filament - 3Dom USA Wound Up™ is a coffee filled 3D printing filament made using waste byproducts from coffee. Wound Up™ uses those coffee left-overs to create a special 3D printing material with visibly unique print finishes. The filament produces products with a rich brown color and a noticeable natural grain. Now a cup printed with Wound Up™ is a true “coffee cup.” This is the first in a line of intriguing materials from 3Dom USA called the c2renew Composites. Wound Up™ filament can be printed on any machine capable of printing with PLA using standard PLA settings. Quality: All 3Dom USA 3D printer filament is manufactured in our own production facility located in Fargo, North Dakota. Diameter Tolerance: Variable diameter can cause big problems in your 3D printer. Packing Information: A full 1kg (2.2lbs) of Wound Up™ coffee based 3D printer filament arrives on the Eco-Spool™ plastic reel and is vacuum sealed with a desiccant packet to keep out any moisture.

Cheap DIY 3D Scanning… or not This article did not turn out like I wanted. I intended for this to be a How-To guide for cheap 3D scanning, filled with pictures and screenshots. It’s an incredibly useful concept, turning a physical object into a digital one. There are many applications for such an ability, from customizing an object to repairing or duplicating it. For this project I did not spend any money on software as there are several free programs that will help with the task of 3D scanning, some of which are open source, so trying them fit with the “cheap” theme. Since the Kinect is a fairly advanced sensor compared to a webcam, I figured that it would yield the best results, but I had to order the adapter online. First was Autodesk’s 123D Catch, which takes between 20 and 50 photos of an object from various angles and compiles them on a cloud to form a single 3D digital file. The other cloud-based photograph stitcher that we tried was My3DScanner. We learned that cheap 3D scanning is hard. Related

- Large Format 3D Printer with 4x Synchronous Extruder 3D Printing Greater than 470 x 435 x 690mm build Area The Beast's enormous build area allows users to print objects that have never before been possible on a printer with such a low price point. Our hope is for "The Beast" to make many previously unattainable projects and prints possible and to make it accessible to as many makers, inventors, DIY enthusiasts and artists as we can. High Speed and Simultaneous Printing The Beast's ability to simultaneously print 4 identical objects or groups of objects will enable small scale manufacturing capabilities at a fraction of the cost of 4 individual 3D printers. The Beast effectively cuts print times by 4 when printing simultaneously. 4x Synchronous printing combined with a high speed rail system and Bowden extruders means "The Beast" is capable of producing prints upwards of 10x faster than other FDM (filament type) 3D printers. 4x Printing also enables the user to print 4 of the same object/s at the same time with different colours or materials.

Man Constructs 3D Printed Concrete Castle Minnesotan contractor Andrey Rudenko is now the king of his castle; his 3D-printed concrete castle, that is. After completing a journey that took more than two years, Rudenko developed a customized 3D printer to extrude concrete and build a castle that he had designed himself. The entire structure is approximately 3 meters by 5 meters, which really makes it an amazing backyard fort rather than an actual livable structure. Extruding concrete to create 3D-printed buildings isn’t entirely novel. Image credit: Andrey Rudenko, Total Kustom As a machine capable of extruding concrete wasn’t commercially available, Rudenko had to develop his own. The concrete was extruded in layers that were 3 cm wide and 1 cm thick. Now that Rudenko has proven that aesthetically-pleasing customized structures can be created with 3D printers, he’s hoping to scale up operations and create an actual livable medium-sized home. Unfortunately, his castle isn’t for sale. [Hat tip: Jason Lamb, Geek Exchange]

3D-printed Lightsaber Design Philosophy and Printing Tips For May the 4th, I designed a 3D printed lightsaber in commemoration of Star Wars day in collaboration with Ultimaker. There were many other designs out there, but none that I was really happy with. The examples I saw were mostly over simplified, impossible to print without supports, or difficult to assemble. I knew I wanted something more faithful to the original prop with better surface quality. So I set out to build my favorite design from the series. 4 vs 14 piece design I ended up making two versions of the Lightsaber, a 4 piece version which stresses ease of printing and assembly, and a 14 piece version that makes no compromise on surface quality. In this guest blog I will explore some of the design nuances, by comparing the two design philosophies represented by the simple and complex versions of the lightsaber model. This is an example of how printing direction could potentially limit your designs, but could be overcome by printing in multiple parts. Is it worth it?

Create your own electrostatic motor using a 3D printer May 31, 2015 | By Simon While the wide range of 3D print-based DIY projects could keep anybody busy for the rest of their life, some of these projects aim to solve some of the more pressing problems that we’re dealing with as of late - such as climate change and energy usage. With Elon Musk’s recent announcement of the new Tesla Powerwall, his call for action to find solutions for energy-related problems only became more apparent. Among other alternative energy solutions, wind turbines have been a consistently reliable source of energy that have been around in some form or another for over 1,000 years. While some of the earliest wind turbines were simple windmills for powering a single operation such as gathering water, today’s wind turbines feature state-of-the-art materials and technologies to ensure that they are a reliable supply of power for an electrical grid. In total, the non-printed parts needed for this project include: The printed parts needed for this project include: inShare18

This ultimate 3D printed Spider-Man mask is nothing short of incredible Aug 5, 2015 | By Alec Anyone who has been to cosplay convention in recent years will know that 3D printing is increasingly becoming an indispensable technology for making a fantastic costume. Of course, you don’t always have to 3D print a full Iron Man suit to benefit from a 3D printer; as one Dutch designer reminds us, 3D printing a few parts can make the entirety of a costume so much more incredible. As Yuri explains to, he wasn’t even a big Spider-Man fan growing up, but became inspired when the movie franchise kicked off way back in 2002. The final and truly amazing suit. The now thirty-year-old Yuri, who has since graduated in Media Design at the Dutch Art Academy, has spent years developing various Spider-Man suits – for as far as his budget enabled him to. The earlier version of the suit – still pretty good. And to get a high quality result, 3D printing was done by (the incidentally also Dutch) Shapeways. Assembly of the 3D printed Spidey mask.
