A Craft Approach to Men's Boots by Boston Boot Co. Two guys, one with decades of industry knowledge and a desire to turn the category upside-down teamed up with a buddy with the connections to make it all happen. We added a 3rd, a talented-as-hell shoe designer with a cutting-edge sense of style. Our shared vision: to bring style, durability and comfort together in a pair of boots as resourceful as we are. In short, we wanted to make boots the right way. So we are setting out to build a better boot, and we started by looking out our window for inspiration.

OpenSL 3D Printer: A Stereolithographic printer, For Everyone. What is sLAMPS? sLAMPS is an open design for a 3d SL (Stereo Lithography) resin printer. I've been working on it for the last few months and have gotten it to the point where it is ready to print -- once I get a good supply of resin. How does it work? The printer works using a galvanometer and mirrors to steer a laser into a cured vat of resin.

The Robo Personal 3D Printer Yes, Robo is another one of those new 3D printers that appear on crowdfunding sites, but what makes it different? For one thing you'll immediately notice that it's got a very attractive case - and that's just the start. Each new filament-based 3D printer startup focuses on a particular aspect to make them stand out. Robo's focus is cost. They aim to be the lowest priced personal 3D printer they can be. This seems to be born out on their Kickstarter page, where they offered PLA printing kits at USD$475 and fully assembled versions at a mere USD$520.

MakerBot unveils the Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner In almost all circumstances, in order to 3D print something, you first have to have a digital 3D file. Currently there are four ways to get such a file: model it yourself, commission someone to model it, download it from a repository like Thingiverse, or 3D scan it. There’s also the using of customization apps to create unique 3D objects, of which Cubify, Thingiverse, and Shapeways all offer now. untitled Mini-cars, bracelets, cookie cutters, desserts, shirts – the possibility of what you can make on even a small desktop (FDM) 3D printer is nearly endless. Almost as endless, is the list of possibilities of who can design these amazing toys, trinkets and tools. Thanks to free tools, creative people, and the art of the search engine plus YouTube tutorial combination – we’re finding that the face of these 3D designers is changing, evolving and just as exciting as the designs that they create.

Makerbot, Ultimaker and Cb printer: customer support comparison 3d printers are fun, but you will eventually have problems and will have to write to the customer support to solve them. Maybe after months of faithful usage like it happend to our Replicator or just after unboxing and trying to assemble the creature, but sooner or later you will have to write an email and ask information or spare pieces to who sold you the machine. Sometimes it’s a nice experience, sometimes it’s awful. CES 2013: Cubify's New CubeX 3D Printer Wins Best Emerging Tech Award 3D Systems seemed to be the only 3D printing company out in force at CES, perhaps because it was at last years' that they debuted their Cube 3D Printer. This year they pulled the sheets off of not one, but two machines: Their updated Cube 2, a faster and more accurate update to the original, and their larger CubeX, which can print "basketball size" (10.75" x 10.75" x 9.5") in both ABS and PLA. Whereas the Cube 2 still rings in at an affordable $1,299, the base model of the CubeX will set you back $2,499.

Dreambox: the 3D printing vending machine It will be some time before we have vending machines where we can swipe our credit card, and have most anything we want 3D printed instantly, on the spot. No doubt it’s coming, but not yet. However, first steps in that direction are being taken. Three U.C. Berkeley students have just developed what can truly be called a 3D printing vending machine.

ExtrusionBot announces EB2 3D printer filament extruder, Spooler and Cruncher Jan 27, 2015 | By Alec Veterans of desktop 3D printing might have picked up on a curious notion in the supply/demand equation of their hobby: while 3D printers are steadily becoming more affordable, filament spools are seemingly impervious to market mechanisms, inflation or deflation. In short, they seem to always cost the same no matter what. Even the cheapest spools tend to be around or above $30, and we seem to go through them will tremendous speed; especially if you print a bit carelessly and just turn on your machine to 'see what happens' with a certain design. If you recognize yourself in this, then a filament extruder might be a nice solution; machines that, in a nutshell, turn plastic pellets and coloring agents into spools of filament in the comfort of your own home. Pellets for PLA filament.
