Color Voting Update - 06/11/12 at 6:11 AM MST The Voting is Over, we have a winner! Black - 32, Blue -11, Clear - 9, Red - 2, Gold - 2, Green - 1 Right from the beginning I wanted the B9Creator to be different. DIY 3D Printers based upon the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) concept simply can not match the higher resolution capability of the B9Creator. How about speed? "But how much does that resin cost?" As you will see below, the project development is already well along and is about set for production. So... (Eiffel Tower model printed at 100 micron resolution) I began working on this concept last fall. (Working on resin development) (Trying out different ideas) (Youtube video describing early design concept) (Final R&D prototype.. it works!) (Production design using CAD) (Final production design, CAD rendering) (The assembled production prototype) (Custom components fabricated by my US based vendors) - Assemble and ship kits and completed units starting as soon as components arrive.

Бюджетные 3D-принтеры для печати фотополимерами В то время как принтеров для печати расплавленным пластиком существует уже великое множество, любительских принтеров печатающих фотополимерами до недавнего времени практически не было. Основное преимущество таких принтеров — высокое разрешение, гладкая поверхность изделия практически не требующая дополнительной обработки. Ценник профессиональных принтеров зашкаливает за десятки тыс. у.е. Но вот сейчас стали появляться принтеры в бюджетной категории. MiiCraft Миниатюрный принтер на базе DLP пико проектора.

A list of DIY high resolution DLP 3D printers Sep.11, 2012 Unlike the Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technology we usually see on Makerbots and repraps, new generation of hobbyist printer uses light-curing resin and a DLP projector to build 3D objects. These printers use Digital Light Projection technology which produces objects with incredibly fine detail. How does it work? DLP is a much faster printing process that is capable of printing very high resolution models - each 0.1 mm thick needs about 8 seconds to cure. Here are some DIY DLP 3D printers being developed by enthusiasts for early adopters. B9Creator Price: Starting at US$2,375(Kit), US$3,375 fully assembled Michael Joyce, the designer of the B9Creator launched his Kickstarter campaign to help raise enough funds for first production run. Build Size: 77 x 102 x 203 mm (X-Y 0.1mm)/38 x 51 x 203 mm ((X-Y 0.05mm) Resolution: X-Y 0.05~0.1mm Z 0.1mm Build Speed: 12-20 mm per hour resin cost: US$100 per kg MiiCraft Price: Starting at US$2,119 Sedgwick Lunavast XG2

Remee - The REM enhancing Lucid Dreaming Mask by Bitbanger Labs Like Bitbanger Labs on Facebook Remee has been selected as a finalist for the William McShane Fund, by Buckyballs & Brookstone! If you think Remee deserves to be available at Brookstone, vote here! Yes, really! For nearly as long as recorded human history, the idea of consciously recognizing and controlling our dreams has been around. To us, this is kind of a shame, sort of like being unaware of the existence of books or music. This is an easy one. There's a lot more to Lucid Dreaming than simply acknowledging that it's real and crossing your fingers. Boom. Here's some great info for people new to the concept: WNYC's Radiolab - We've been listening to Radiolab for ages, so we thought it was great when they recently released a short about someone using lucid dreaming to overcome a recurring nightmare. /r/LucidDreaming - Reddit's active, knowledgeable, helpful Lucid Dreaming community. 25,000 dreamers strong and growing! You bet. $5 Reward: Remee wooden coin, laser cut by us in Brooklyn.

Новый бюджетный 3D принтер Появляются всё новые 3D принтеры в семействе RepRap. Printrbot был разработан с целью сделать принтер дешевым, максимально простым в сборке, а значит доступным широким кругам. Девиз проекта — "Printrbot — твой первый 3D принтер". Далее следуют переводы избранных мест с сайта проекта и из опубликованных видео от лица создателя принтера Брук Драм (Brook Drumm), которые проясняют подробности проекта и текущее состояние. — «Я разработал Printrbot как самый простейший принтер. — «Этот принтер я собираю за 45 минут. — «В январе 2011 я собрал мой первый 3D принтер Makerbot Cupcake. 3го февраля напечатал свой первый объект. — «Это не сторонняя подработка в свободное время, а начало нового бизнеса. Есть местный поставщик печатающей головки в сборе. Есть инженер, который общается и принимает решения по производству электроники. Моторы: я разговаривал с местным поставщиком и он уже предложил разместить большой заказ в производство. Детали будут печататься на ферме ботов, которую мы создаем. ЗЫ.

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. The Printrbot is my original design, but borrows from many great designers in the open source 3D printer world (check out reprap.org). Pictures of the Printrbot: Video of the Printrbot: More Info: printrbot.com We could have (and will eventually) build this printer using all lasercut wood like Makerbot and others, or poured molded plastic, or even injection-molded plastic, but I believe in the original RepRap.org purpose: to build a self-replicating machine - one that anyone can build given time and materials. This kickstarter will do more than fund a single project.

revolights. join the revolution. by Kent, Adam & Jim Dear Kickstarter Supporter, Thanks for checking out our project. We hope you are as excited about revolutionizing the bike light industry as we are. Today we have a product (patent pending); a product we're proud of and believe in, but it's not complete! What is the Revolights bike lighting system? (Battery holding device and battery are not pictured, but they will be located on the hub. Where's development at? What's the money for? So, in short: 1) prototype design, 2) prototype building, 3) tester program design, 4) tester acquisition, 5) program execution, 6) data analysis, 7) and repeat… If funds remain, we will use them to build the working capital necessary for manufacturing the first production batch of the Revolights bike lighting system. How long are we thinking this will take? A bit about why we are doing this, and why we believe... On the road, bike lights contribute to rider safety in two ways: Let's use a few stats to paint a picture… In 2008 [1]:

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 Printed Parts: 33 Non-Printed Parts: 285 (including every bolts/nuts/washers/ferules/etc.) Special Features Foldable ! Community FoldaRap 2.5 new plates arrangement for the v2.5, to ease color associations ;) FoldaRap 2.1 after several tries and suggestions with Xav83, I ended with this simple piece that hold an endstop with a zip-tie :) (for the Z-endstop, or any machine using 20x20 extrusions) FoldaRap 1.0

Community Guidelines Are those the only guidelines? Those are the main two, but read on for specific uses of Kickstarter that are not allowed, and note that Hardware and Product Design projects have additional guidelines below. We don't curate projects based on taste. Instead, we do a quick check to make sure they meet these guidelines. Who can create a project on Kickstarter? Creating projects is currently open to creators over the age of 18 and based in the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands (see full details).
