The Peachy Printer - The First $100 3D Printer & Scanner! by Rinnovated Design Below is a detailed video explaining how the Peachy Printer works through explanation and demonstration! The peachy printer is a Photolithographic printer. That means it uses a controlled beam of light to cure light sensitive resin into hard objects. The peachy moves a laser beam along the X and Y axes to create the shape of the object, while using a drip system to control the level of the resin on the Z axis which determines the height of the object. The object you want to print must first become a 3D model in Blender. The software we wrote as an add on to blender takes the data from that 3D model and translates it into an audio waveform. Now let's talk about the drip system that creates movement on the Z axis. Under The Hood Below are some detailed pictures showing under the hood of our current prototype. If you've seen our main video then you already know just how well these new methods work. How does the 3D Scanner work? More About Blender Manufacturing Plan #1 - Under 5000 orders

The gMax 3D Printer - Print. Bigger. by Gordon LaPlante If we reach: Read About gMax Printer At: Imagine a world where you can come up with a design in your mind and have the physical object, large or small, in your hands with just a few clicks on a computer in the comfort of your own home or office. 3D printing is something that I was interested in long before I designed the gMax printer. Studying and working in architecture, I’ve been interested in building and design since childhood. Throughout this process I was working full-time and taking my exams to become a licensed architect, which I completed July 2012 – the first prototype was completed that Winter and I’ve been continuously updating, upgrading, and optimizing this printer ever since. Below are several renders showing the design's progression: With a 16'' x 16'' x 9'' (2,304 in3) build volume, the gMax 3D Printer is among the top when it comes to build volume capabilities. Also, the 16’’ square acrylic bed does not require heat if you’re using PLA. Summary:

Modular Desktop CNC Machine by AJ Quick What is CNC? A CNC is essentially a machine that is controlled by a computer and can perform highly intricate maneuvers over and over again (similar to a printer). In this case instead of dispensing ink onto the paper, it uses a cutting tool to cut very detailed shapes into common materials like wood, plastic, & aluminum. It is a critical machine in any manufacturing factory, or research and development lab. We think it’s a tool that will be found in every workshop and home garage in the future. We want to make that future a reality! The Pitch In August 2010 we pitched an idea to University of Minnesota staff to create a challenge for five graduating seniors in the field of Mechanical Engineering. Our Project Our CNC Machine is 26” by 20” with a useable cutting area of 18” x 12”. The Prototype One of the benefits of being designed by engineers means that we have already scrutinized every aspect in the prototype of our design. The Rewards $10 Level. At this level we would love your support.

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. 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. Thank you for your support!

The Buccaneer® - The 3D Printer that Everyone can use! by Pirate3D Inc Manufacturing timeline and Stretch goals sections are at the very end for those who just want to go there. FAQ is also at the back, do check it out in case the questions you have are already answered there. Hi everyone! We have had many requests to see the internals of our 3D printer while it is printing. We ripped out the mechanics from our final casing and placed them into our prototype casing (which is transparent) for all of you to see! It's a bit messy because our prototype box doesn't have the compartments for proper storage but it looks great either way. The item printed is the Cute Octopus from Makerbot, Created by Jason Bakutis and is a creative common. We at Pirate3D are creating a full 3D printing solution for home consumers. Here is what we offer: Easy and Intuitive set up, The Buccaneer is built to be as easily set up as possible. Cloud Printing like pulling information directly from our store (Treasure Island) into your Buccaneer. Here is our baby, The Buccaneer. Summary Why?
