getitmade: market-test and fund your idea; from prototype to product Downloads The packages are automatically built based on the master branch on github. Note: The packages are called "openscad-nightly" so it's possible to install the development snapshot packages in parallel to the release version from the official repositories. Debian / Ubuntu packages built on OpenSUSE build service To install the packages, the release key must be added with apt-key to the key-ring to allow apt-get / aptitude to validate the packages. NOTE: If you get errors about an expired key valid till 2016-11-28, please re-import via the following command. # wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add - After the key is added, the repository URL needs to be configured.

Maker Movement Gaining Recognition There have been a number of stories in mainstream media recently recognizing the “Maker movement” exemplified by our own magazines Make: and Craft: and online sites like Etsy and Instructables. (Disclosure: O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures is an investor in Instructables.) This past week’s article in Business Week, Arts and Crafts Find New Life Online is a great example. (There was also a great article in the NY Times a few weeks ago, entitled Handymade 2.0.) The Business Week article cites Etsy, Instructables, and Make, as well as fashion design sharing sites BurdaStyle and StyleShake. Many of these companies say they trace their lineage to the open-source technology movement formed in the ’90s by computer programmers who wanted to create software anyone could build upon. One of the things that the article didn’t pick up on, though, was the crossover between technology and craft. I still remember my surprise and delight at the first Maker Faire. That’s a big tent!

3D Printer Success: University of California San Francisco (UCSF) As unhealthy as it may sound, Joe Derisi has a passion for viruses. DeRisi is a professor and vice-chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). At his lab, he and his team focus on the cause of malaria and investigate other viruses such as SARS, Avian Flu and others. Winner of a MacArthur “genius” grant, DeRisi is known for his enthusiastic pursuit of new techniques and is responsible for designing and constructing the “ViroChip”, a groundbreaking tool for detecting the presence of all known viruses in only one step. As you might imagine, DeRisi’s line of work requires a high degree of scientific rigor, which translates into substantial lab hours and equipment costs. “I researched 3D printing for several years and was looking for a printer that could quickly and inexpensively produce highly customized parts for the lab,” said DeRisi.

Software - Products 3DCrafter™ 3DCrafter is a real-time 3D modeling and animation tool that incorporates an intuitive drag-and-drop approach to 3D modeling. Complex models can be constructed from simple 3D primitives, or created using 3DCrafter's Shape Building Tools. Modeling tools are provided to deform, sculpt, and paint 3D shapes. Creating an animated scene is as simple as positioning the shapes within your scene for each point in time in your animation. 3DCrafter will ensure that the resulting animation runs smoothly. Tool roll-up groups allow you to customize the 3DCrafter interface so that only those items you use most frequently are visible. The standard version of 3DCrafter is a fully functional product provided as freeware. Feature Comparison 3DCrafter 9 is a free upgrade for anyone who purchased July 1st, 2010 or later. Multi-User licenses for 3DCrafter Pro can be purchased here. Entering License Codes Once you have purchased 3DCrafter Plus or 3DCrafter Pro you will receive a License Code via Email.

Recognizing The Maker Movement The World Maker Faire opens in Queens this weekend, in the second annual New York City event for the formidable faire. That was perfect timing for having a conversation with Dale Dougherty, the father of the movement, about why Making is bigger than just tinkering or crafting, but actually represents an important social, cultural and political force. If you have twenty minutes, I'd love for you to watch the video below and to share your thoughts on the implications of the Maker Movement. Today, lots of people across the political spectrum are willing to abandon logic, reason or even science in favor of their politics, and these people propose only obstruction instead of solutions, letting skepticism take the place of creative invention.
