Features “...That was the original idea from day one - the elimination of the tweening process. But it is certainly not the only feature of Synfig that makes it unique. In addition to eliminating the tweening process, I also wanted Synfig to be used for pretty much every part of production except story-boarding and editing.” 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.
Others Who Have Finished A salute to those who have laboured through to this point (and to demonstrate that it is reproducable) Here are some pictures of other peoples machines. Photo 1 - Chris and his friend put together this unit; laser cutting the parts out of half inch acrylic. Not only does it look super it must weigh a ton. draft works who we are draft works is a design studio and fabrication lab rooted in the belief that the true success of a project comes when it is physically built. To this end, we are focused on bridging the divide between the field of design and the act of fabrication. what we believe Everything starts as a sketch, an idea that strikes you at some point but whose entirety is not always clear at the onset. It is an idea ready to be explored.
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.
Solid freeform fabrication: DIY, on the cheap, and made of pure sugar In February we gave a sneak preview of our project to construct a home-built three dimensional fabricator. Our design goals were (1) a low cost design leveraging recycled components (2) large printable volume emphasized over high resolution, and (3) ability to use low-cost printing media including granulated sugar. We are extremely pleased to be able to report that it has been a success: Our three dimensional fabricator is now fully operational and we have used it to print several large, low-resolution, objects out of pure sugar.
Desktop CNC Mill Kit - Shapeoko 2 Product Details IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING SHIPPING: Mechanical Kits have a 1 week lead time, Full Kits have an estimated lead time of 4-5 weeks Shapeoko 2 is a simple, low cost, open source CNC milling machine kit that can be built over a weekend. Assembly is required before you can use it. Digital Morphologies Nebula Lamp reflect a research about computational tools as essential elements for the form finding process and additive manufacturing as a meaning of production. The 3d printed object is no longer just a prototype, but is the final product; and the characteristic look of the 3D printing plastic is no longer synonymous with an uncompleted design process but is a symbol of new processes that override in meaning and functionality the old ones.Industrial Design, Print Design, Product Design2012 A Bracelt generated using Weaire–Phelan structure, a complex 3-dimensional structure representing an idealised foam of equal-sized bubbles.The initial foam has been helicoidal-shaped and slightly distorted to suit a wrist, the final object can be 3D printed in nylon, stainless steel, abs, and other various and fancy materials.

Sabur XF DIVA - Sublimation InksSublimation Inks Advanced Media Handling The DIVA is ideal for long production runs thanks to its heavy duty media handling system that stabilise printer performance, ensures precision media feeding and support for media rolls up to 50kg. For added functionality, adjustable media holders placed on either side of the take-up system support narrower media rolls. Media loading is a breeze thanks to the DIVA’s new media loading levers, positioned conveniently at the front and the back of the machine.

There are several open source tools that can help you create useful, informative graphs. In this post we will take a look at eight open source, data visualization tools. Datawrapper Datawrapper was created by journalism organizations from Europe, designed to make data visualization easy for news institutes.
