188.8.131.52/i3_documentation_pics/singlepage.html Tools needed A trusty knife (click any image to make it bigger) Zim, the Zeepro 3D printer with dual head-3D printer Zim is the first personal 3D printer to feature a dual extruders printing head with Ethernet & WiFi connectivity, an onboard micro-camera, smartphone and tablet control, and an exclusive refillable cartridge system. With Zim, 3D printing is about to go mainstream, as everyone from hobbyists to children will now be able to print high quality 3D objects quickly and safely using various materials and colors, at an affordable price.

EWaste 60$ 3DPrinter This project describes the design of a very low budget 3D Printer that is mainly built out of recycled electronic components. The result is a small format printer for less than 100$. First of all, we learn how a generic CNC system works (by assembling and calibrating bearings, guides and threads) and then teach the machine to respond to g-code instructions. After that, we add a small plastic extruder and give an overview on plastic extrusion calibration, driver power tuning and other few operations that will bring the printer to live. Following this instructions you will get a small footprint 3D Printer that is built with about an 80% of recycled components, which gives it a great potential and helps to reduce the cost significantly. On one side you get an introduction to machine building and digital fabrication and on the other side you get a small 3D Printer built out of reused electronic parts.
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. (“Producers” will be shown as part of a joint exhibition of Veilhan’s musically inspired artwork held simultaneously at Galerie Perrotin’s New York and Paris locations this spring.)
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. The only extra part needed is a length of surgical tubing to thread through the mechanism. Making a Box Frame Prusa i3 – 3d Printer It’s always been my goal to be able to produce my own prototypes at home without incurring substantial cost and time ( waiting to receive a part ). I have quite a few manual machine tools, however due to time constraints it is hard to put aside enough time to do the job properly on these machines for anything with substantial complexity. Ideally, I should have attempted to fit up my basement with a small benchtop CNC machine from the start. That being said, I’ve been working on a neat project most this year, and I’m at the point now where I need to design and prototype an enclosure for it. My initial attempts to machine this on my manual milling machine ended up in multiple failures, and I was stuck looking for some alternative means to do it at home.
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. 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. To better define his work, he created the profession of « Sculpteur de Voix » (voice sculptor).
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
