Fosterbot, a Makerbot Thing-o-Matic derived 3D Printer Jun.3, 2012 John Foster, "By day I am a mechanical engineer at a fiber optics company. By night I make everything I can figure out how to make." created Fosterbot, a cute 3D printer derived from Makerbot's Thing-o-Matic. "It is better, stronger and faster", said John.
Laser Cutter Gallery For a while I'd been noticing how cheap lasercutters had become on Ebay. I'd considered putting one on my list of 'things to look at when I next fancied a new toy', but was initially discouraged by some mixed opinions I'd read. My only immediate application would be for making SMD paste stencils, but I'm sure I could find other uses...

The Cult of Maker prays for a burst-resistant bubble Is 3D printing creating a movement strong enough to move beyond the imminent threat of a sudden pop? By Randall S. Newton MSP430 LaunchPad Value Line Development kit - MSP-EXP430G2 Description Important Note: The MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad is not supported by the Mac or Linux versions of the Code Composer Studio™ Integrated Development Environment. Shapeways Escape holes allow unbuilt material inside hollow products to be removed. When Ceramics products contain hollow cavities, they are often still filled with powder even after they are removed from the build tray. If escape holes are not large enough, or the geometry of the product makes it difficult to remove excess powder, we cannot successfully clean it before glazing. When products contain hollow cavities, they are often filled with powder even after they are removed from the build tray. If escape holes are not large enough, or the geometry of the product makes it difficult to shake or blast the powder out, we cannot successfully clean it.
Building Your Own 3D Printer Home-built 3D printers are booming. In 2006 there were no such printers and 5 years later there are tens of thousands. There are currently hundreds of thousands of people wanting to start their own build waiting for the right moment to get started. The project that single-handily propelled home-built 3D printers out of nowhere is RepRap. It’s an open-source project meaning that all the information and design plans you’ll need are available free for all. Eventorbot! Open source 3D printer. by eventorbot Eventorbot! Open source 3D printer. Simple with less materials. Frame is made of a single 4' long, 2 1/2" square tube (16 gauge/1.5mm/.0598" thick, cost: less then $20.00). With the design there is less plastic parts, stronger structure, all wires are hidden, and a more appealing/finish look.
