netfabb Cloud Service - Beta iRapid - A new 3D printer built with “rack and pinion” concept April 19, 2012 iRapid, a new 3D printer made by in Germany is ready to hit the market. iRapid is a complete assembled 3D printer, one of the first fully assembled 3D printers in Europe. iRapid is built with a brand new and unique "rack and pinion" concept that uses no belts and thread rod. This design keeps the machine neat and very easy to build. According to, this is a pending patent in Germany and Europe and when it is successful they will apply for an international patent. The system is a ready to use 3 axis CNC machine with an extrusion toolhead and the total build envelope is approx. 140x140x140mm. Unlike any other in it's price range, iRapid has a rigid aluminum frame and a reliable gear rack solution. Some critical technical data of iRapid 3D printer listed in the website are: The iRapid is expected to be on the market latest in three month time at a price tag of approx. 999 Euros (excluding taxes).

ConnectCubed YouMagine - Where makers collaborate on 3D designs □ 2D KSCAN 3D Scanning Software KSCAN 3D Scanning Software KSCAN 3D is a powerful and affordable 3D Scanning software. Used in conjunction with Microsoft Kinect or Asus Xtion sensors (not included), KSCAN enables the generation, merging, rendering and editing of complex 3D forms - including human bodies, furniture, small parts, you name it. When you're finished scanning and editing the mesh, you can export your 3D model into your preferred 3D modeling program. Low-Cost: KSCAN costs 10-20 x less than other 3D scanning solutions, even after including the sensor's cost (i.e. Versatility: Scans objects of various textures and sizes; can utilize multiple sensors at once; and can align and merge overlapping meshes. Editing: Can smooth, erode, decimate and combine meshes File Portability: Exports models into .fbx, .ply, .obj, .stl, .asc, and .3d3 formats. Sensors: KSCAN 3D must be used in conjunction with Microsoft Kinect or Asus Xtion sensors (not included with software). KSCAN 3D Specs

3D 3D printing commentary Thingiverse user Dizingof, well known for intricate latices work designs, recently removed most of his designs from thingiverse in response to 3DSystems and Stratasys ignoring the non-commercial license associated with his things and using his designs to market their product. There are so many facets to this story I can't decide which one I want to talk about. For starters there's two huge companies ignoring licenses protecting a little guy because what's he going to do, sue them? It is disgraceful and shameful and probably not going to effect their bottom line in the least. Sucks. Dizingof chose to stop offering most of his stuff for free on Thingiverse and started selling them on Ponoko. But he left the listings up on Thingiverse and Thingiverse does drive some mad traffic. I hope Dizingof consults a few attorneys and sees if he can build a case. And that is a depressing way to end this post, so here's a clip from Grim Fandango:

Box of Goodies I’ve realized that the only way to create realistic outdoor scenes is by adding lots and lots of nature elements. Things like trees, flowers, bushes, rocks etc. are essential in making the scene look “believable”. But I also know that creating these things by hand takes a very long time. And not everyone has time to sit down for hours on end and create tree after tree after tree. Which is why I’ve done the hard work for you :) The Box of Goodies! Inside this box of goodies you’ll find 9 nature models that you can keep. As well as this you’ll find a collection of grass reference photos that will help you to better create it in blender. Eg. What will you do with yours? Drop your email address in the box to the right and I’ll send the Box of Goodies your way.
