Printrbot: Your First 3D Printer by Brook Drumm

Printrbot: Your First 3D Printer by Brook Drumm
I designed the Printrbot to be the simplest 3D printer yet. There are some great kits out there - the Makerbot, the Ultimaker, the Prusa Mendel, and others - but none as small and simple as the Printrbot. This all-in-one 3D printer kit can be assembled and printing in a couple of hours. Other kits will not only take you many more hours to build, they will also have hundreds more parts, and they will cost more. My design also does away with the finicky calibration and adjustment from which most 3D printers suffer. This is the printer a kid could put together. The Printrbot is my original design, but borrows from many great designers in the open source 3D printer world (check out Pictures of the Printrbot: Video of the Printrbot: More Info: Being a true RepRap means you will immediately be able to upgrade and modify the machine with parts you print yourself. This kickstarter will do more than fund a single project. Please, help us change the world.

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 The Quantum ORD Bot by bdring This is the Quantum ORD Bot. It is 3D printer mech platform made from MakerSlide linear bearing. It is extremly ridged and very easy to build. The design can easily be scaled in X,Y and/or Z by simply changing the Makerslide lengths plus belt and leadscrew lengths. This is the mini or 'Quantum' version. The parts other than MakerSlide are either off the shelf standard items or easily fabricate with a laser cutter, 3D printer or CNC router.

FTDI DLP-USB245 USB/FIFO Interface applied to motor control The USB's many advantages have led designers to come up with a wide range of applications for the bus. For example, the figure shows a USB-based controller for four stepper motors built using inexpensive off-the-shelf components. The circuit requires no microcontroller or DSP. It uses simple logic circuitry and application software to control selection of the stepper motors, their clockwise or counter-clockwise motion, and the step size: full step, half step, or microstep. The design is based on a USB-to-FIFO parallel interface module (IC1).

3D Printing with Kinect EmailShare 44EmailShare 80 mm tall scan, printed with a Thing-O-Matic I’ve been working with 3d scanning for over two years now, building my own 3d scanners and writing code to work with commercial scanners like the Kinect. When I started my artist residency at MakerBot, I knew I had to combine 3d scanning and 3d printing.
