OpenSL 3D Printer: A Stereolithographic printer, For Everyone. What is sLAMPS? sLAMPS is an open design for a 3d SL (Stereo Lithography) resin printer. I've been working on it for the last few months and have gotten it to the point where it is ready to print -- once I get a good supply of resin. How does it work? The printer works using a galvanometer and mirrors to steer a laser into a cured vat of resin. The resin cures at 405nm (which the laser puts out) and turns the liquid pool (Of Zero VOC Environmentally friendly resin) into little Yoda heads and Pink Panther Ladies. Why do I need funding? I'm seeking funding for two reasons: 1) To be held accountable for my design to ensure that this design makes it into your hands before people are mistaken into spending a lot of money on something that doesn't need to be that expensive. 2) To accelerate my prototype. Big purchases? Well, the funding, if received, would go towards: * Resin Development / Manufacturing / Supplier. * Laser Cutter. Why aren't you selling lots of full, assembled printers? What's left?

Makerbot, Ultimaker and Cb printer: customer support comparison | A girl with a 3D printer 3d printers are fun, but you will eventually have problems and will have to write to the customer support to solve them. Maybe after months of faithful usage like it happend to our Replicator or just after unboxing and trying to assemble the creature, but sooner or later you will have to write an email and ask information or spare pieces to who sold you the machine. Sometimes it’s a nice experience, sometimes it’s awful. You already are sad/annoyed/angry because your printer isn’t working and a good user support will brighten or darken your day. Cb-printer: I’ll start easy, the error was theirs. Makerbot: after working perfectly for months on one day we heard a pop, a bad smell and the printer was dead. Great support, would love to recommend it Ultimaker: I already wrote about the problem we had in my assembly post and won’t get into details again. Based on the user support I would never recommend Ultimaker What have been your experiences?

W.Afate 3D printer On dit de l’imprimante 3D qu’elle aura le même impact que la machiné à vapeur. Un jeune togolais est peut-être en train d'écrire une des pages les plus belles et pleines de promesses de cette nouvelle épopée technologique... Soyez à la source de cette éclosion. Ecologie. _Valoriser les e-déchets et contribuer à nettoyer les dépotoirs informatiques qui comme à Agbogbloshie au Ghana, s’étendent à l’échelle de quartiers entiers. _Mettre la technologie à la portée de petites gens et faire de l’Afrique, non pas une spectatrice, mais une actrice à part entière d’une prochaine révolution industrielle plus vertueuse. _Favoriser le détournement et la réutilisation des machines usagées pour éviter de les envoyer à la casse et ainsi génerer un nouvel apport économique aux ménages africains, aux écoles et aux cyber cafés.

The Future Is 3-D, Inc. | Print your imagination FoldaRap FoldaRap2 Release status: working In my obsession dreaming of a folding RepRap, I finally started to make one, after 5-7 months of development I'm able to travel with it around the town/country/world :) (adventures pictured on flickr / youtube / ustream) And now several people have build one : FoldaRap_Hall-of-Builds, even some by sourcing themselves the parts : google-maps (the red dots) Specifications Printed Parts: 33 Non-Printed Parts: 285 (including every bolts/nuts/washers/ferules/etc.) Special Features Foldable ! Community FoldaRap 2.5 new plates arrangement for the v2.5, to ease color associations ;) FoldaRap 2.1 after several tries and suggestions with Xav83, I ended with this simple piece that hold an endstop with a zip-tie :) (for the Z-endstop, or any machine using 20x20 extrusions) FoldaRap 1.0
The shape of things to come: A consumer's guide to 3D printers CES 2013 proved to be something of a coming out party for consumer-facing 3D printers. Sure MakerBot earned a fair amount of attention at last year's show with the announcement of the Replicator, which snagged its share of awards from various press outlets. This year, however, saw a relative deluge in 3D-printing representation, with strong showings from 3D Systems, FormLabs, MakerBot and the cloud-based 3D printer, Sculpteo. These nascent days are an exciting time, with a diverse array of companies and organizations vying to be the first to bring the technology to our homes. Most of these work by melting plastic (largely Lego-like ABS or biodegradable PLA) and squirting it out through extruder heads. There are a surprising number of companies and organizations currently invested in the space, be it through pre-fabricated models, kits or open-source, downloadable plans. 3D Systems 3D Systems has been in the 3D-printing game since before the term was coined.

Metamáquina - Metamáquina - criamos máquinas que criam máquinas 3dkits: Kits mecánicos para impresoras 3D hechos en España | MADfab A través de 3ders nos enterábamos de la existencia de estos kits hechos en España con un aspecto muy profesional y limpio. José, de 3dkits ha accedido a contestar unas preguntas para los interesados. Hola José, muchas gracias por atendernos.No se merecen. ¿Dónde se fabrican vuestros kits? Parece sencillo acoplar una fresadora al soporte, aparte de un extrusor de plástico. ¿Hay resultados mediales de la resolución que se consigue? ¿Qué posibilidades de ampliación hay? Se echa en falta en vuestra Web algún resultado. ¿Qué motores se usan y qué electrónica y software los controlan? Si hay algún lector de madfab interesado en probar una, ¿cuánto cuesta y qué incluye el kit? José nos promete más material según lo vaya generando por lo que seguiremos informando.

dood presents DOM: Digital Object Maker The project Who are we? We are two childhood friends with complementary skills: mechanical engineering, business, arts, marketing, music, teaching... 3D printing has been a passion of ours for years. Origin of the project We decided to create our own 3D printer to become more independant and have access to a cheap and efficient solution. We could have assembly or order one of the many RepRap models available but we were not entirely satisfied by the mechanical part of these machines. Our printer: the Digital Object Maker After more than a year of work, we finally succeed at building a reliable machine. This technology lets inventors, designers, architects or makers with CAD knowledge create objects, test ergonomy or even produce small batches of a product. Technical Specs. of the DOM Dimensions: 61x41x41 cm (24x16x16 inch) Materials: wood, aluminium, stainless steel Layer thickness: 300 to 100 microns 3D printing material: PLA (bio-degradable plastic) Build volume: 20x20x20 cm (8x8x8 inch)
