The Peachy Printer - The First $100 3D Printer & Scanner! by Rinnovated Design

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

P13552 / Home Team Members Current Project Summary One of the goals this team had upon starting this project was to not restrict themselves based on what the previous teams had done. They started by exploring a variety of new and different ideas including a different curing set-up, a different shearing device and a different photopolymer. The biggest problem faced by last year’s team was that when the projector cures through an optical medium onto the build platform, the resin sticks to both the optical medium and the build platform.

Robox : Desktop 3D Printer and Micro-Manufacturing Platform by C Enterprise (UK) Ltd. Works Out of the Box – Plug in the power and USB cord and start printing.. automated bed levelling, intuitive software and advanced hardware all come together to make Robox reliable and easy to use.High Resolution – Robox has one of the highest print resolutions of any FFF printer in the market - 20µm (0.02mm) layers.Dual Nozzle System for Speed - Robox includes a dual-nozzle system which closes the flow of material and lifts the unused nozzle. Up to 300% faster than our competitors.Automatic Material Recognition, No Vendor Lock-in - Robox requires no programming for different materials – just load the SmartReel and go! Each reel contains a chip which is programed with all the necessary parameters.

The Scientist Magazine® - Nightly RENAL RECONSTRUCTION: Wake Forest postdoctoral fellow Hyun-Wook Kang operates a 3-D printer that is making a kidney prototype with cells and biomaterials.IMAGE COURTESY OF WAKE FOREST INSTITUTE FOR REGENERATIVE MEDICINE On a stage in front of an audience of thousands, a futuristic-looking machine squirted gel from a nozzle. Layer by layer, it built up the material, shaping it into a curved, pink, kidney-shape structure based on a medical CT scan of a real organ. It was 2011, and Anthony Atala, director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, was demonstrating his progress in using three-dimensional (3-D) printing to make a kidney during his TED Talk. Like a TV chef pulling a previously baked casserole from the oven, Atala soon held a bean-shape object in his gloved hands. “Here it is,” he said.

The Zim 3D Personal Printer - Fabbaloo - It's another week and obviously time for another new 3D printer launch on Kickstarter. This week the Zim 3D printer launched, hoping to raise funds for its first production run. With new 3D printers launch almost daily, it is very difficult for new entrants to distinguish themselves above the other offerings. mUVe 1 3D Printer The mUVe 1 3D printer is bridging the gap between the hobbyist maker and the high-price resin printers that are currently out of their reach. The mUVe 1 uses a standard 405nm UV laser diode and a 3 axis CNC system to bring all of your high-resolution 3D models to life. When we set out to design a 3D printer we needed it to be as open and upgradable as possible, but it still had to offer great features at a great price.

3D Printing Well, it's been a while - I haven't updated the 3DLP Host Software since I came out with the first Alpha version back in May. This past weekend I started working on a complete revamp of the software - and when I say revamp, I mean that by the time I'm done, nearly every line will be replaced with better, more robust code. Planned features for the next release of the software include: 3D STL importer/viewer, 3D realtime slicer, re-written Arduino firmware, a new, cleaner GUI, slice previewing, and a manual printer control dialog. I'm also working on an efficient automatic support generation algorithm that I plan on implementing in later releases. Here's a preview of the new 3D interface:

The Othermill: Custom Circuits at Your Fingertips by Otherfab Share this project Done Share Tweet Mebotics The idea behind the Mebotics Microfactory began when friends who were helping grow a local makerspace, the Artisan’s Asylum, started kicking around the idea of a portable, clean and quiet hybrid manufacturing machine. The concept grew out of a shared frustration – a desire to develop functional prototypes and art pieces in our homes and business (outside of traditional machine shop space) without making a mess or driving our neighbors and spouses crazy. The company incorporated in 2012 and, over the next few years, self-financed the development if 5 versions of the machine. In that time we received feedback from people both in our makerspace and around the world: toy designers, architects, small apparel makers, novelty manufacturers, and dental implant producers (just to name a few) who share the vision of using an affordable machine capable of working in wood, plastic and metal in the middle of their current offices.

3d Printer DLP Software is responsible for the all of the calculations and controls of a 3D printer. A STL file is an input for the software. This 3D model must be sliced into 2D images according to the given layer height. These images will be projected on a photo sensitive resin in order to cure it. The software is also responsible for controlling the motors for the motion.

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. 3D Printing Droplet Networks Peter Rothman Oxford University scientists have demonstrated a custom-built programmable 3D printer which can create materials with several of the properties of living tissues. The new type of material consists of thousands of connected water droplets, encapsulated within lipid films, which can perform some of the functions of the cells inside our bodies. These printed 'droplet networks' could be the building blocks of a new kind of technology for delivering drugs and potentially one day replacing or interfacing with damaged human tissues. Because these droplet networks are entirely synthetic, have no genome and do not replicate, they avoid some of the problems associated with other approaches to creating artificial tissues – such as those that use stem cells.
