Technology - 3D printing: A new dimension to faking it Thanks to 3D printers, budding counterfeiters could soon create parts or goods themselves. The problem for authorities is that copying physical objects is not always illegal. Rolex watches, Burberry hats and other fake luxury goods are increasingly becoming small beer to ambitious counterfeiters. They are now thinking on a far grander scale – both in terms of size and the tools for the job. According to Der Spiegel, a “fake” copy of a Beijing office and retail development designed by London-based architect Zaha Hadid is already being built 900 miles (1,500km) away in Chongqing.
CadQuery Examples — Documentation Wrapper Classes for FreeCAD These classes provide a stable interface for 3d objects, independent of the FreeCAD interface. Future work might include use of pythonOCC, OCC, or even another CAD kernel directly, so this interface layer is quite important. Funny, in java this is one of those few areas where i’d actually spend the time to make an interface and an implementation, but for new these are just rolled together This interface layer provides three distinct values: It allows us to avoid changing key api points if we change underlying implementations. It would be a disaster if script and plugin authors had to change models because we changed implmentationsAllow better documentation.
GoldFish Alpha – Download – GoldFish is a CFD Solver for grasshopper written in C++ and C# I did this because C++ is fast enough to allow the user to interact with the problem and see updates in real time. It has been a long time since i wrote this but i have finally gotten around to getting it out there. Its initial release has limited functionality but there will be more to come. The 3-D printing revolution has begun There’s a rite of passage for many entrepreneurs with a great product idea: Ship your design to China to get a prototype made on the cheap, and cross your fingers. Thanks to the increased accessibility of 3-D printing technology, Made In China is no longer the only option. In fact, 3-D printers are empowering entrepreneurs to design more innovative products at home, taking some mystery out of the process, and saving them time and money so they can better compete with larger companies.
Designing a 3d printed EXOSKELETON and how to 'grow' electronic parts on it! Printing Exo1: How to design your exo-skeleton and how to grow electronic parts on it from leaving the planet on Vimeo. video Designing a 3d printed EXOSKELETON and how to 'grow' electronic parts on it! Originally posted on symbioticcube.com [ David Gann from symbioticcube.com explains a workflow for producing a body fitted exoskeleton from freely available resources. Additionaly a method of growing mounts for electronics on it is explained: Continuing with my thoughts and experiments about bringing together wearable computing and a generative or ‘symbiotic’ design processes, I ended up doing a 12 minutes video tutorial.
Jumbo 3D-Printer PRotos X400 The biggest 3D-Printer based on RepRap technology known to us with a printing area of 400x400x350mm. The new PRotos X400 by German RepRap combines the advantages of the OpenSource technology with a performance and a quality “Made in Germany” interesting for professional operators in machinery and plant engineering, small batch production or in electronic industry and for ambitious private users. A layer thickness up to 0.1mm and a printing space of 400 x 400 x 350mm, allow the printing of precise models with a volume up to about 56 liter.
Projector and Camera, A Little Closer: New, Magical Mapping Tools, 3D Scanning, and More Visionary 3D scanning, computer vision, and digital media guru Kyle McDonald is back again with more tools that break down the boundary between the computer and the world. Kyle tells us he spent a great part of the fall in residence at the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media (YCAM) in Japan. He worked with experimental projector/camera rigs — and now we get to enjoy some fruits of those labors. The software collection is free and open source (MIT License), built for OpenFrameworks, and already includes some documentation. (The ideal is contributing back to the core of OF, adding to this artist-savvy C++ coding tool.) Mapamok

Simple DIY 3D Scanning: Projector + Camera + Processing DIY 3D Scanner from Kyle McDonald on Vimeo. Kyle McDonald sends us a hacked-together 3D scanner. I love that it’s slightly inaccurate in aesthetically-pleasing ways, I love that it’s something you can put together using stuff you already have at the ready, and I love that it’s powered by Processing. The applications could range from 3D models to motion graphics and animation to assistance in mapping projections to 3D objects. clip on landing gear with shock absorber for parrot ar drone 2 by 3dlyx You need: 4 steel nails 2mm diameter or original parrot propeller axes a drop of glue or original parrot c-rings maybe a bit of tape or small zip-ties 4 common household rubber rings Print the parts. Put a steel nail, or better a spare propeller axis through the holes in on of the legs and trough the clip that will be clipped on the original landing foots of the drone. if you do not want to use the original brass bushings you should print the v2_no_bushings - leg. The new v2 clip sits more tight that the v1 one on the foot, so it needs some force to clip it on.
