MyDIYCNC - Home of the DIY Desktop CNC Machine | The Easiest Way to Desktop CNC diy When I was in China last summer, I remember noticing that most girls had ponytails tied with a scrunchie with bunny ears. I could never pull this off, but thought it was adorable, and kept it in mind for an Easter DIY. It's a great way to use fabric scraps, a simple accessory to wear at an Easter party, and a sweet Easter gift for a little girl. Okay, on to the DIY! Supplies needed:Fabric, about 1/8 yardFabric glue (or a sewing machine if you prefer to sew)Elastic (I used the 0.25 wide one), about 9"ScissorsPencilSafety pin Start by cutting a 18" x 3" piece of fabric. On the right side of the fabric, apply fabric glue all along the top edge (on the longest side), trying to distribute the glue evenly. Fold (wrong side facing out), press firmly along the edge (where you just applied glue), and let the glue dry for about half an hour. Once the glue has dried, turn the tube inside out. Cut a 9" piece of elastic, and attach a safety pin at one end. Cut a 12" x 5" piece of fabric.

Roland iModela Rapid Prototyping Beginn der Fertigung eines Prototyps Der Kunststoff wird aufgetragen. Modell fast fertig Das Endergebnis: Ein Modell der Wirbelsäule, das mit Daten aus dem MRT erschaffen wurde. Rapid Prototyping weltweit[1] Das Audi-RSQ-Modell wurde mithilfe von CAD-Daten, die direkt in ein Programm für Industrieroboter mit Frässpindel umgewandelt wurden, gefräst. Für große Modelle werden Industrieroboter wie eine CNC-Maschine eingesetzt. Rapid Prototyping (übersetzt schneller Modellbau) ist der Überbegriff über verschiedene Verfahren zur schnellen Herstellung von Musterbauteilen ausgehend von Konstruktionsdaten. Rapid-Prototyping-Verfahren sind somit Fertigungsverfahren, die das Ziel haben, vorhandene CAD-Daten möglichst ohne manuelle Umwege oder Formen direkt und schnell in Werkstücke umzusetzen. Verfahren[Bearbeiten] Zu den Verfahren des Rapid Prototyping zählt man unter anderem: Anwendung[Bearbeiten] der Einsatz als Werkzeug: Rapid Tooling undder Einsatz als Fertigteil: Rapid Manufacturing.

How to Mesh Point Cloud with SketchUp Let’s confess: not everybody has talent to create an artistic 3D model. I don’t. I can create a couple of cubes in Google SketchUp (SU) and call it Toyota RAV4 (I suspect this is how they did it). But to create something a little more artistic let’s scan a thing, import point cloud into SU and make a polygon mesh model. I am aware of several triangulation tools for point clouds in SU, and though they arel limited to Delaunay triangulation method, these plugins are good! Points cloud triangulation by C. This is great plugin, but it requires delaunay2.rb plugin which you most likely will not be able to find : all the links are dead. Triangulate Points by TIG This is my favorite because it’s a package: you will get all you need in one place . Cloud_V8 (6,7.1) by D.Bur This plugin is essential for point cloud import.

How to build an Awesome Sidewalk with recycled lumber for only $50.00 After reading that title you might wonder, why would anyone make a sidewalk out of wood? Well, there are a few very good reasons for doing it. A little history More than 25 years ago my wood sidewalk started out as an experiment to see how practical it might be. My challenges for this project were: Come up with a design that could use all the different sizes of redwood I salvaged without producing a lot of waste. Resurface the older weathered wood so it matched with everything. Create a good-looking, practical sidewalk at a reasonable cost. By the way, I have included a lot of comments and extra info in the pictures so be sure to check any yellow outlined squares in them.

Roland’s monoFab Prototyping Solution We had a look at Roland’s new twin machine prototyping solution they call “monoFab”. It’s a series of two different rapid prototyping machines. The ARM-10 provides desktop 3D printing capability, while the SRM-20 provides desktop milling functionality. The two machines together can provide a serious prototyping capability for any small workshop. The ARM-10 is a DLP-powered resin 3D printer, meaning it is capable of printing at pretty high resolution. Using photo curable resin, the DLP light engine repeatedly cures 0.01mm layers in its 130 x 70 x 70mm build volume.

Rapid Prototyping: US-Armee entwickelt günstigen 3D-Drucker Die US-Armee setzt seit einiger Zeit 3D-Drucker ein, um schnell Ausrüstungsteile bauen zu können. Die Rapid Equipping Force (REF) hat sogar mobile 3D-Druckwerkstätten eingerichtet, die in Containern untergebracht sind und unter anderem in Afghanistan eingesetzt werden. Nachteil der Expeditionary Labs: Sie sind mit handelsüblicher Ausrüstung ausgestattet - und die ist teuer. Das Future Warfare Center des US Army Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC) hat deshalb einen eigenen 3D-Drucker entwickelt, der deutlich günstiger ist als die Modelle, die im Handel zu kaufen sind. Ein weiterer Vorteil ist, dass er klein und handlich ist und deshalb einfach mitgenommen werden kann. 3D-Drucker aus dem 3D-Drucker Das Gerät baut Werkstücke aus Kunststoff auf und besteht seinerseits aus Kunststoffteilen, die aus dem 3D-Drucker stammen sowie aus Holzelementen, die mit dem Lasercutter ausgeschnitten wurden. Teile schnell bauen zu können, sei für Soldaten von großem Nutzen, erklärte Berry.

Laser Cutting for Fun & Profit » Techspeak Laser Cut Flower I’ve been experimenting with laser cutting lately, and starting to get some results I like. It turned out to be more accessible than I expected, and what started as a single-purpose project is growing into an interesting creative outlet (You can follow my experiments on my Etsy store). Why & What to Laser Cut Laser cutting is awesome. Musical Notes Accent Mirrors Materials I’ve been working mostly with acrylic, which is light-weight, comes in a ton of colors, and relatively inexpensive (the images of my pieces on this page are all mirrored acrylic). Software I started out using Inkscape, an open source vector-based art program. Cutting As A Service I initially sent off the same design to two different cutting providers: Ponoko and Pololu. I now use Pololu exclusively, for two reasons. Profit One cool thing about laser cutting (like other CNC fabrication machines) is that once you have a cool design, you can systematically iterate on the design to improve it.

How to Build an Earthbag Roundhouse Note: If you’re new to earthbag building, please read the introductory Step-by-Step Earthbag Building Instructable first. Also, my new Earthbag Building Guide and Earthbag Building DVD are now available. Stay up-to-date on all the latest earthbag news by following our Natural Building Blog. We built this earthbag roundhouse in 2010 as part of an earthbag workshop in Thailand, and finished it later that summer. The other key advantage of earthbag is cost. Basic project information: 18’ exterior diameter; 15’ interior diameter; 177 sq. ft. interior floor space; total cost of materials: $2,045, which is about $11.50/square foot The following instructions assume you have cleared and leveled the site, removed topsoil, positioned fill soil around the building site to minimize work, dug a trench to stable subsoil, buried any utilities, put about 12” of gravel in the trench, and added a center pole with stringline to measure the radius.

HP's Sprout uses a smart mat instead of keyboard and mouse For years, the design of desktop PCs has been relatively static when compared to the innovation tablets and smartphones have enjoyed. But now, Hewlett Packard is hoping to shake up the sector with a machine that uses a touch mat and in-built 3D camera as its main controls, leaving a keyboard and mouse as optional extras. The Sprout's projects graphics onto its mat to provide its owners with a limitless range of controls. These can be anything from normal computer icons and alphanumeric keyboards, to piano keys and DJ mixing decks - the only limit is the software developers' imagination. Owners can also capture objects by placing real-world products on top of the surface, allowing the items to be scanned and then reproduced as graphics that appear on the mat and can be manipulated by hand. Alternatively, the machine can create 3D-printer files that can be edited on the main screen before being turned into physical objects or shared with others.
