Rafts, Skirts and Brims! This tutorial will help you understand the differences between rafts, skirts and brims. All three techniques provide a starting point for your model, but they have different uses and advantages. Rafts A Raft is a horizontal latticework of filament that is located underneath your part. Rafts are used primarily with ABS because they provide separation between the part and the heated bed.

Italian 3D-Printing Company Creates Unique Furniture Combining Traditional Craftsmanship & 3D Technology Italy is quickly emerging as a competitor in the global 3D printing market in no small measure thanks to one company, 3DiTALY. One of the company’s founders, Antonio Alliva, and his design team showcased 3DiTALY’s latest project in late April at Milan Design Week, truly an important world stage for all things furniture. One of the primary goals of 3DiTALY is to explore the potential for combining 3D scanning and printing technology with traditional furniture design techniques, and the project, titled “Eggform,” did just that. 3DiTALY, which began a decade ago as a kind of experimental laboratory, offers a wide range of services, including workshops, labs, a retail and exhibition space in Rome that invites visitors to explore 3D printing. It also maintains a thriving online presence, providing a broad range of 3D printing services, and hosts a thriving online 3D printing community. What do you think of this technique?
Blender Tutorial: Blender 3D printing tutorial This tutorial was made for Blender users with an interest in 3D printing. It covers the essential information for taking your 3D model and turning it into a 3D object using the free CAD software. Through this tutorial, you will learn some of the best practices for modeling, correcting and exporting a 3D file for 3D printing with Blender 2.7. Specifically this tutorial covers the following points:
Download free STL file Schrodinky! British Shorthair Cat Sitting In A Box(single extrusion version) Your rating: 0/5 12.8k views 75 likes 1.8k downloads 3D model description A couple of weeks ago, I posted a very cute picture on Twitter of a British Shorthair kitten sitting in a flower pot and many people enjoyed it. It was then I realized what the world was missing - a model of a British Shorthair cat sitting in something - but I chose a box instead because i think 9 out of 10 cats prefer them. Prints without supports.
Design Sprints — the Secret to Rapidly Developing Products Customers Actually Want This post will teach you the process of running a design sprint — a method developed by Jake Knapp, a partner at Google Ventures — to solve big problems and test new ideas in just five days. Most teams often invest months, even years, in developing a product or service, only to discover they've built something that no one wants. Jake developed a method that helps teams make better use of time and resources by simulating the entire product development process in just five days. A design sprint helps teams filter ideas and gain clarity as to which of them are best to pursue. Let's dive in and see what that process looks like at a high level, and how to implement it.
Migbot Prusa i3 Unofficial Support Thread You know how the old saying goes: "You get what you pay for." The Migbot Prusa i3 is one of those ridiculously inexpensive 3DPs coming from China. It has a few good things going for it. Technical support is not one of them The Monsters keep dancing in my head... The monsters keep dancing in my head is a study and exploration of a number of things - a study of the phenomenon of persistence of vision - the process that allows static images, played at a specific speed to take on animated qualities (for those more scientific purists - phi phenomenon and beta movement.) It’s a first attempt for me at working with gears and the transfer of motion, and it’s a look into 3d printing technology and prototyping/manufacturing - allowing us to take the ideas in our head and massage them into existence - including the design, design improvement and prototyping processes. In its completed state "the Monsters" is a 3D persistence of motion sculpture, featuring a hand crank driven wheel with 12 three-dimensional sculptures mounted to it, each posed in a position that makes up 1/12th of a dance animation loop.
Blender 3D Modeling Software You can do 3D Open Source modelling and animation with Blender software. Blender 3D Modeling Software screenshot About Blender software This free CAD software was published by NaN (Not a Number). Originally, Tom Roosendaal, the cofounder of NeoGeo, the largest 3D animation studio in the Netherlands, was behind creating this CAD software. Metric Thread Calculator Metric thread calculator to calculate external and internal metric thread dimensions including major diameter, minor diameter, pitch diameter and thread tolerance according to ISO 724 and ISO 965 standards. There are two calculation options available, general engineering use or custom use. In general engineering use, calculations can be done by selecting a standard metric thread size in a range from 1.6 mm (M1.6) to 64 mm (M64).
