EWaste 60$ 3DPrinter Although the downloaded Marlin firmware already has a standard calibration for the axis resolution, you will have to go through this step if you want a precise printer. Here you will tell the firmware the steps per millimeter that your machine actually needs. This value depends on the steps per revolution of your motor and on the size of the thread in the driving rod of your axes. By doing that we make sure that the movement of the machine actually corresponds to the distances in the g-code. Knowing how to do that will allow you to build a CNC-machine of your own with independence of the component types and sizes. In this case, X, Y and Z axes have the same threaded rods so the calibration values will be the same for them (but that might not be the your case if you use different components for the different axes).
3D printing - Wikipedia (US) 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), refers to processes used to synthesize a three-dimensional object in which successive layers of material are formed under computer control to create an object. Objects can be of almost any shape or geometry and are produced from digital model data 3D model or another electronic data source such as an Additive Manufacturing File (AMF) file. Futurologist Jeremy Rifkin claimed that 3D printing or AM signals the beginning of a third industrial revolution, succeeding the production line assembly that dominated manufacturing starting in the late 19th century. The term 3D printing has its origin sense, 3D printing in reference to a process that deposits a binder material onto a powder bed with inkjet printer heads layer by layer.
Fun with 3D Printing: Print a Parametric Peristaltic Pump « Outguessing the machine So, I’ve been playing around with the Lulzbot we got at work. Inspired by emmett’s sweet planetary gear bearing design, I adapted the design to be not a bearing but a peristaltic pump. Like the original bearing design, the pump prints as a single piece – no assembly required! – with captive rollers and no rotary bearing/wear surfaces. Xavier Veilhan Sculpts Music Producers Using 3-D Tech ON A BRIGHT AFTERNOON last December, Xavier Veilhan found himself in a modernist mansion perched high above the Pacific Ocean, marveling at the long path that had led him to this moment. As ’60s psychedelia played on the sound system, music producer Rick Rubin—co-founder of Def Jam and former co-head of Columbia Records, as well as one of the artist’s heroes—lay motionless on a bed as a team of Veilhan’s assistants worked to capture his image, turning their boss’s creative vision into reality. The 51-year-old Veilhan was at Rubin’s Malibu, California, compound to work on his portrait series “Producers,” a collection of sculptural pieces devoted to the music makers hidden behind the curtain.
teams up with Microsoft HoloLens We are very excited to announce we’ve been working with Microsoft as an official partner of HoloLens, along amazing organizations such as NASA, Disney, Unity and Autodesk. The HoloLens was unveiled in January of this year. This device lets you bring virtual objects and scenes into your own environment, the best of both worlds between VR and AR.
Arduino Leaks a Peek of Their Upcoming 3D Printer Arduino, known for creating an easy-to-use microcontroller revolution, is about to launch its own 3D printer. The Arduino Materia 101 made its global debut earlier today on the official Arduino twitter account with a photo of a boxy white and teal FDM printer and a note that Arduino co-founder Massimo Banzi is showing the printer live on Italian TV. It also states that the printer will be presented next weekend at Maker Faire Rome. STL (file format) - Wikipedia (US) Example of STL vs CAD format STL (STereoLithography) is a file format native to the stereolithography CAD software created by 3D Systems. STL is also known as Standard Tessellation Language. This file format is supported by many other software packages; it is widely used for rapid prototyping and computer-aided manufacturing. STL files describe only the surface geometry of a three-dimensional object without any representation of color, texture or other common CAD model attributes. The STL format specifies both ASCII and binary representations.
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) artilect Barack Obama’s 3D voice print ‘New industrial revolution’ by French digital artist Gilles Azzaro was unveiled for the first time on November 7, 2013 at 3D Printshow in London. Gilles Azzaro’s work principally involves the three-dimensional materialization of voices and their audio reproduction. Using cutting edge technologies he reveals the forms of the invisible, transforming and magnifying them into truly amazing lunar-like landscapes.
