Flux 3D: A cheap, modular 3D scanner, printer and laser engraver A Taiwanese team has developed the Flux 3D, a cheap all-in-one 3D printer, scanner and laser engraver that, thanks to its modularity, also leaves room for further expansion. The device also allows users to create, share and download designs directly from their mobile devices and connect to the printer via Bluetooth for more convenient operation. View all It wasn't too long ago that buying your own personal 3D printer would set you back a small fortune. The $679 Flux picks up where these two left off, giving you arguably the best bang for your buck yet with a multi-purpose printer, scanner and laser engraver that's not only cheaper than the rest, but which can also be further augmented by adding separate modules as they are developed. To switch from printing to scanning, you simply remove the plastic base and expose the 1.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, which can be used to scan small objects as they sit on a rotating platform. The team's Kickstarter pitch video can be viewed below. Source: FLUX

Construction / Fabrication Cette page essaye de vous donner divers trucs, astuces et détails de fabrication. Visser dans du médium Pour assembler des panneaux de medium, il est tentant de visser dans l'épaisseur du panneau. Hélas, le medium éclate systématiquement. Percer un avant trou (diam 2,5 pour une vis de 4) Serrer le panneau pendant le vissage, avec un étau ou pour les cas difficiles, avec une pince-étau. Protéger le médium Le medium étant très dense, il 'prend' mal les vernis, peintures et lasures. Monter des vis de pression sur vos poulies Il est tentant de monter les poulies sur les arbres en les collant au blocpresse (Loctite) ou à la colle cyanoacrylate. Monter votre poulie dans un étau (avec des mordaches) de façon à pouvoir perçer le chant de la poulie avec votre perçeuse à colonne Pointer et percer au bon diamètre, sinon le taraudage sera très difficile (penser à acheter les forets spéciaux avant...)

TechShop Laser Cutting Inspiring laser projects at TechShop! Hello! Before I get started, I should emphasize: this Instructable should be really, really easy, provided you have a laser cutter. Without one of those nifty devices, I would have labored hours to cr... The other day I learned how to use a sand blaster and you know how when you learn a new skill your mind explodes with possible uses. I made it at TechShop. I made it at TechShop ( I made this clear acrylic T-rex at TechShop San Francisco on a 60 Watt Epilog Laser Cutter. I'm a big Doctor Who fan and I've always wanted to own a TARDIS. UPDATE: A number of steps have changed, since we've started getting professionally produced circuit boards and screen-printing the design on the insides of the box. I created this desktop lamp because I was inspired by another one I saw on Instructables but wanted something a bit simpler in style and creation. I've been with TechShop for some time now and I enjoy using the Epilog Laser Engraver. - CNC Laser Buildlogs Hardware Modding & Tuning Gallery The plans and Solidworks files are available for free @ Thingiverse! Original Aluminium upgrades The CAD planning took about 30 hours. So far I have used 2 days building and got the main table torsion box and base structure finished I was able to finish the torsion box in a day, took about 10 hours total. Second day I had lots of other stuff to do besides this,- but managed to build the base structure. Some of the plans I made with solidworks, they will be available for free later on. This is the current situation, it was quite hard to maneuver these big objects in such a cramped space. The project will move much slower from now on as I can only work on it at weekends.

3D Printing Umbilical Cord Clamps in Haiti At first glance, Haiti might seem an odd destination for a 3D printer. 3D printers are cutting edge. They’re in the news. Haiti is a beautiful country fighting to improve itself and its global standing. Our organization, iLab // Haiti has brought the first two 3D printers to the country of Haiti. We are using two of MakerBot’s dual extrusion Replicator 1′s, and we will add two more at the end of this month. Our goal is to empower local Haitians to think differently about their surroundings and potential. Some of their first projects are simple medical devices, such as umbilical cord clamps, which they are currently prototyping (on their fourth iteration). With rapid prototyping tools and internet capabilities, complex 3D models can be exchanged between Haiti and other countries for production, distribution, and direct connection to the global market. 3D printers in Haiti! iLab // Haiti is supported 100% through grassroots efforts and in-kind donations.

La table type Spartia In english Voilà bientôt deux ans que je pratique CNC à l'aide de la merveilleuse Rustica. J'ai bien pu en tester la construction et l'usage, et j'ai incité une bonne vingtaine de modélistes de mon club et environs de construire la leur! - comme je suis un adepte des découpes tordues, bien éloignées des simples ailes (ce pourquoi était destiné au départ le concept CNC), je trouvais que sur la Rustica les chariots dépassaient fort et aux grands angles, l'arc ou le fil venaient régulièrement en butée contre différents éléments. - Rien ne tombe dans les rails de guidage (comme la poussière de poly ou des petits ou grands morceaux, chutes etc.. Matériel: - Si on a une fraiseuse ou un copain qui en a, on utilise les fichiers .plt joints pour découper les pièces en circuit imprimé (de préférence cuivré 2 faces pour éviter l'usure des vés par le fil) . - fixer les roulements sur les équerres au moyen des vis M5 à tête fraisées et des écrous - fixer les moteurs

CNC Panel Joinery Notebook I’ve been collecting clever ways of slotting flat stock together since I first read Nomadic Furniture back in 1999, well before the advent of the accessible hobby-class CNC tools that today make manufacturing parts like these pretty easy. Now, the world is full of people designing models, project enclosures, sculpture, furniture, and all kinds of other cool stuff to be assembled from parts made on laser cutters and CNC routers. I keep expecting a definitive book or website to emerge that covers the “bag of tricks” in an organized way, but so far, I haven’t found it. Maybe this article can serve as a jumping-off point. In any case, I think it’s time to share my notebook of CNC panel joinery. In presenting this material, I want to first acknowledge my respect for the world’s established and ancient traditions of joinery. I may abuse some terms, without meaning to, and I am glad to be corrected by those who are in the know about traditional joinery. Laser vs. Biasing Cross (“X”) Joints
