Filabot: Plastic Filament Maker by Tyler McNaney

Filabot: Plastic Filament Maker by Tyler McNaney
Filabot is a 3D plastic extrusion system. For example mostly any type of recyclable plastic, such as milk jugs, detergent bottles, soda bottles, shampoo bottles, product packaging, and many more, can be processed through the Filabot to make usable 3D printing filament. This will allow for users to remake filament from an old print that is bad or not needed. Plastic recycling and extrusion have been around since plastic was invented. The Size of Filabot and Operation: Going along with the desktop theme, The Filabot will be designed to fit on a desktop. The grinding unit of the Filabot will process plastic up to the diameter of 4in, larger pieces will have to be broken down before feed into the grinder. After grinding the plastic will be a uniform size and will be automatically feed into the hopper. The molten plastic will be extruded out of interchangeable nozzles. After extrusion the filament passes through a sizing roller so that it will be the correct diameter for printing. Related:  Impression 3Dumalfero

OpenJsCad Web based solid modeling in Javascript: user editable parametric models, STL and DXF export. Playground Try it by entering some code below. Anything you enter will be lost as soon as this page is reloaded; to build your own models you should instead store them in a .jscad file on your computer and use the OpenJsCad parser. Examples Choose another example: About OpenJsCad is a 2D and 3D modeling tool similar to OpenSCAD, but web based and using Javascript language. function main() { var cube = CSG.cube(); return cube; } creates a cube with a radius of 1 and centered at the origin. 3D solids can be exported as STL files, 2D areas can be exported in a DXF file. To build your own models, create a .jscad file with your javascript code and parse the file using the OpenJsCad parser. Why use OpenJsCad? Viewer navigation Click and drag to rotate the model around the origin. Tools, Libraries License OpenJsCad is developed by Joost Nieuwenhuijse. Contributions are welcome!

in italiano - RepRap in Italian/Costruire una reprap Questa pagina non è stata verificata e potrebbe contenere informazioni non corrette Ci sono diversi modi per costruire una RepRap o una Repstrap; il metodo scelto per queste istruzioni è stato scelto per minimizzare le conoscenze e gli strumenti necessari. Per esplorare altre opzioni cliccare su: Build a RepRap-Advanced ("Costruire una RepRap - Avanzato"). Il Design Classico RepRap è "Darwin" nell'immagine a destra. La RepRap è stata attentamente studiata per utilizzare solo componenti che possono essere costruiti con una RepRap ed altri componenti economici. I Cloni RepStrap Darwin sono copie abbastanza accurate del tipo Darwin ma i componenti RepRap sono sostituiti da componenti creati in un modo diverso, magari in plastica stampata, in acrilico o compensato tagliato al laser. Altre RepStrap, queste sono altre stampanti 3D in grado di fabbricare componenti di RepRap (Darwin) ma che non sono strutturalmente simili alla Darwin.

Low cost 3D printing filament extruder for recycled plastics Low cost filament extruder made from 10 mm ID stainless steel tube, silver soldered inside an ordinary plumber 15 mm copper tube (melt zone) Auger is a 10 mm wood drill bit with the end cut off 5-10 mm in the melt zone. 1 mm hole in a brass endstop at the end of the copper pipe. Aluminium block with a 15 mm hole to fit around the copper pipe. Fixed to the outside of the aluminium two 220 volt 200 degree PTC heaters( I tried 12 volt 230 degrees but the temperature was to high) Insulated with glass fibre cloth. The ptc heaters are available on aliexpress for $1 each) System driven with a car windscreen motor at the low speed (I have a 2 speed motor - salvaged from scrap yard) I use the white plastic that is in the inside of the doors of scrap refrigerators. Cut it up with a circular saw and extrude that to a filament of 1.75 mm I use this filament in my Delta printer on a daily basis.

ErikZalm/Marlin Options This page attempts to make some sense, in general, of how all the pieces fit together to create a RepRap. However, if you want to skip all this stuff and get straight to getting your hands dirty then your best bet is to take a look at The incomplete reprap beginner's guide and the build instructions category. In addition to those guides, you may also want to take a look at the links under the Models section below. RepRap Component Structure. That being said, to get a higher-level overview, we must start with discussing the different models of repraps, then go on to the four main components of a reprap: The software toolchain. Models These days there are a growing number of many great and detailed build instructions for repraps! Software Toolchain The software toolchain can be roughly broken down into 3 parts: CAD tools. CAD Tools Computer Aided Design, or CAD, tools are used to design 3D parts for printing. Software Files There are very few interchangeable CAD file formats. CAM Tools Part Files

Filament Extruder | Chandler, AZ Shrunk down an Arduino to the size of a finger-tip! by Open Source RF RFduino: A finger-tip sized, Arduino compatible, wireless enabled microcontroller, low cost enough to leave in all of your projects! The RFduino has Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy built-in, which enables it to wirelessly talk to any smartphone that has Bluetooth 4.0. Currently we have several open source apps built for the iPhone which were used in our demos. Open source Android apps are next. The RFduino has a Nordic 32 bit ARM Cortex-M0 processor, so it has more power then the UNO, however it still runs the same, simple Arduino code the UNO runs, so there is no need to learn any new programming language or environment. The RFduino GPIO lines all support, Digital IO, Analog ADC, SPI, I2C, UART and PWM. The RFduino is similar to the Arduino UNO or DUE, except the RFduino is a fraction of the cost and size, in addition has wireless smartphone connectivity built-in! Up to now, adding wireless to an Arduino required an additional wireless shield which adds cost and size. - Armen

I have been developing a low cost plastic extrusion system for many months now and am nearing completion. The machine is primarily designed for those people who have a 3D printer at home and need a supply of filament. Check out a selection of videos showing various stages of prototype: To fit with the intended user base I had the following primary aims when designing the system: Low cost. What’s left to develop?

FORM 1: An affordable, professional 3D printer by Formlabs Are you frustrated that low-end 3D printers don’t have the quality to make the true beauty of your designs real? Do you dream of having the power and resolution of a truly professional machine on your desktop? We’ve created an easy-to-use system that rivals the output of high-end printers at a fraction of the cost. Our reason for starting this project is simple: there are no low-cost 3D printers that meet the quality standards of the professional designer. We’ve been hard at work for over a year, and with your help, we’re ready to take the Form 1 into full-fledged production. We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to design a complete 3D printing experience: The Form 1 printer is engineered to produce high resolution parts with the touch of a buttonForm software is intuitive and simple to use so you can spend less time setting up prints and more time designingThe Form Finish post-processing kit keeps your desktop organized so that you can easily put the finishing touches on your masterpiece
