Review: Monoprice MP Select Mini 3D Printer 2016 is the year of the consumer 3D printer. Yes, the hype over 3D printing has died down since 2012. There were too many 3D printers at Maker Faire three years ago. 2016 Best 3D Printer Guide With over 1,000 different 3D printer models available on the market today, “Which 3D Printer should I buy?” is one of the most common questions we are asked at 3D Hubs. To answer this question, we reached out to our global community of 3D printing service providers to learn from their experiences and find out more about the 3D printers they own. With reviews from over 8,624 verified 3D printer owners having a collective 4,982 years of 3D printing experience, coupled with 1.14 million prints completed on 513 different 3D printer models, the result of our research is the 2017 3D Printer Guide – the most comprehensive 3D printer guide available. Together with our community, we investigated the following parameters to help measure the user experience of a range of 3D printers: print quality, build quality, reliability, ease of use, print failure rate, customer service, community, running cost, software, and value. In our 3D printer index you can find an overview of all reviewed 3D printers.

3D Printing for Mass Production A high-speed sintering 3D printer at work. Image: University of Sheffield Despite the fact that it can be used to make pretty much anything, 3D printing has already been pigeon-holed. In the public imagination, the technology belongs in a science museum, or sitting on some DIY hobbyist’s desk. When put to work in industry, it’s limited to whipping out a few prototype variations, one-off pieces, or parts that require only a very short print run.

Digital Sundial by Mojoptix The episode in [ENGLISH]: L'épisode en [FRANCAIS]: For those who have trouble slicing the gnomon, I ran the files through netfabb and re-uploaded them as: -- Gnomon_Southern_NETFABBED.stl -- Gnomon_Northen_NETFABBED.stl Let me know in the comments if they don't still behave nicely with your slicer. If you wish to print the gnomon in two halves : -- Gnomon_Northen_half_1_of_2.STL -- Gnomon_Northen_half_1_of_2.STL They should fit on a 100x100 platform. (Thanks Zarlor for building these two files and fixing them !

PSMD (Pololu Stepper Motor Driver) Triple Axis Driver by tinkerings A drop-in replacement for the MakerBot stepper drivers that contains all three axes on one board. You can order these from my web site: Now you can also order these from Seeed Studio!: Updated: Now smaller (same height as a Gen4 stepper driver and 1/4" wider for 3X the axes), and with dip switches to configure microstepping. Also now has a motor-power-in (or 12V out) screw terminal that can be used to drive the motors on up to 35V.
