Kossel Clear - Let's build a full sized delta 3D printer! by Blue Eagle Labs
Update: We reached our stretch goal! Please check our updates tab for more information. We are Blue Eagle Labs and we are HUGE fans of 3D printers. For the past 6 months, we have been working on our rendition of the delta printer, the Kossel Clear. The Kossel Clear offers the following main advantages: Complete Build Documentation: For the 1st time builder, making your own delta 3D printer might seem to be a daunting task due to the vast amount of information that needs to be gathered. 1. 2. 3. Our Kossel Clear is a delta type 3D printer that uses 3 stepper motors to control the kinematically linked effector for movement in the x,y,z axis. Design Highlights Auto Calibration: Thanks to Johann Rocholl's auto calibration routine, builders will now have a lot less on their minds. Acrylic Parts: Acrylic offers the best combination of aesthetics, 'manufacturability', and cost. Acrylic Rods/Arms: Measure twice, cut once? Aluminum Extrusions: We love these aluminum extrusions.

First Look at the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner The MakerBot Digitizer, a 3D scanner, is a cool and highly useful accessory for any designer or hobbyist who has a 3D printer. I was on hand at MakerBot Industries' Brooklyn headquarters for the first press demo of the company's Digitizer 3D scanner. Following a talk by MakerBot's CEO, Bre Pettis, we were given a demonstration of the scanner in action. It appears to be simple to operate, and capable of good-quality scans. MakerBot Industries, founded in 2009, has made its name by developing 3D printers for hobbyists and professionals. The company wanted to build a 3D scanner to go along with its 3D printers. The Digitizer, which can scan objects up to 8 inches across and 8 inches tall, takes 12 minutes to scan an object to a digital file. The Digitizer can send the scan directly to the Thingiverse repository of 3D object files, or import it into the company's MakerWare software for output on a Replicator.

We designed this LASER from the ground up to set a new standard in affordable LASER technology for precision cutting and engraving. It has numerous features that make it the best LASER the world has ever seen at this price point. There is a 20"x12" work area, high quality (metal terminal) 40w CO2 LASER tube and precision CNC made hardware to deliver never before seen quality at this level of affordability. -Design = DONE -Functional prototype = DONE -First batch assembly = in progress! When it is released for $3,499 it will be the best LASER under $10k on the market. We found the design online and repeated it on the back. Just for fun. ... and with our removable bed our new 5th Generation Hobby Laser could actually engrave a surface that large - in many 20"x12" increments. This new laser is the best we've come up with. Wood Working

ZEUS: The World's First ALL-IN-ONE 3D Printer / Copy Machine by AIO Robotics Also seen in: Wouldn't it be great to buy a 3D printer, take it out of the box, plug it in, and be able to use it right away, the same way you would with any other piece of consumer electronics such as computers and TVs? Just as 2D printers naturally evolved to incorporate more functions into one device, we set out to revolutionize the 3D printing industry to give makers a complete 3D printing experience with a multifunctional machine. Finally, you will now be able to scan, print, copy, and fax objects from one device at an affordable price. The result of this endeavor for the past 5 years has been breathtaking. Our design philosophy is to create a product that can be beautifully displayed and used in any environment. Instead of plastic or wood, all linear components are made by CNC-machined aluminum (xyz-carrier, turntable) and the external metal enclosure ensures an extremely rigid body. Layer Resolution: 100 microns (200 & 300 options available for faster prints) Timeline:

3D printing with a delta robot that seems to simplify the concept This 3d printing delta robot really seems to solve a lot of the hurdles faced by previous offerings. With other delta printers we’ve looked at the motor control of the three arms is usually a it complicated. On this build the motors can just be seen in this image at each corner under the build platform. Each motor has a belt that loops from the bottom to the top for the machine, driving an arm along two precision rods. It’s also interesting to note that the printer head doesn’t have a motor mounted on it for feeding the filament. After the break you can catch a clip of the team showing off the speed and dexterity of the delta bot, followed by a printing demo. [Thanks Kyle]

Lemon Pie : un nouveau concurrent pour le Raspberry Pi Plus besoin de choisir entre Linux et Android, le Lemon Pi peut faire tourner les deux. Embed Studio n’est pas forcément une boite très connue à l’heure actuelle mais elle compte bien renverser la tendance dans un avenir proche et elle a ainsi profité du calme de l’été pour lever le voile sur un nouveau mini-ordinateur très prometteur. Le Lemon Pie ressemble beaucoup au Raspberry Pi et il se présente ainsi sous la forme d’une simple carte remplie de circuits imprimés. Une carte qui mesure environ 85 mm de long et 56 mm de large. Le Lemon Pie peut faire tourner Linux ou Android Elle est petite, donc, mais cela ne l’empêche pas d’embarquer tous les composants nécessaires à son fonctionnement. La machine embarque ainsi un SoC S500 composé de quatre coeurs Cortex A9 gravés en 28 nm. La connectique est assez complète elle aussi. Comme un bonheur ne vient jamais seul, le Lemon Pi sera aussi capable de faire tourner des distributions Linux ou… Lollipop 5.0. Source

Home - Pirate 3D 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. 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. Another note worth mentioning is how quietly the gMax prints. Summary: Specifications Dimensions Weight Frame

$50 camera rig is the cheapest DIY 3D scanning system around In the last couple of years, we’ve seen some really impressive DIY 3D scanning rigs built using the Microsoft Kinect, like a depth-sensing DSLR rig and even a completely handheld 3D scanner. But who says you need a Kinect to power a 3D scanner? One DIYer named Giancarlo Todone built his own simplified and super affordable $50 system called the DephtInition using a single hacked Canon Powershot and some custom firmware. Giancarlo Todone DephtInition is ingenious in its simplicity since it only needs one camera to capture multiple exposures at different focal lengths. The process, known as focus stacking, takes this collection of photos and looks for differences in luminance. By analyzing the brightness of the pixels in relation to each other, an algorithm can discern areas of focus and assign “focus ranks” to parts of the image, which allows it to create a depth map. It’s a super simple and inexpensive method of creating color-accurate 3D images from a stack of multi-focused 2D images.
