The design is simple and reliable ( u can see the video ) Lite6 - A high quality, low cost HotEnd for everyone Posted On: 2015-04-01 13:32:47 ; Read: 403 time(s) Introduction We know that not everybody needs the all-metal high-temperature performance of an E3D-v6.
Full Tilt: 3D Printing Sparks Pinball Revolution Flip. Flip. Clang. Tilt. FabLab Maastricht video interview - PlugnMake FabLab Maastricht specializes in 3D printing research. Its aim is to make both tools and materials as affordable as possible. To do that, they avail themselves of the collaboration with companies, universities and research centers. 21-year-old Floris Hoff managed to build his own company, byflow, thanks to the experience acquired within the FabLab. byflow is a foldable 3D printer with interchangeable nozzles, which allows you to print a wide range of materials through a user-friendly interface. Build Your Own Beautiful Flat-Pack Chair I built this Eames-like chair without touching a single traditional woodworking tool. No, it's not because I'm some kind of Luddite. I just love the immediacy of rendering a chair with 3D modeling software and then cutting out the parts with a CNC machine. Everything snaps together like flat-pack furniture, but without the cheesy fasteners—just mechanically sound through tenons and lap joints. The manufacturing process takes 2 hours. To build this chair, you'll need a $25,000, full-size CNC router, such as a ShopBot.
Ramps1.4 Introduction Ramps is short for reprap Arduino mega pololu shield, it is mainly designed for the purpose of using pololu stepper driven board (similar to 4988 driven board). Ramps can only work when connected to its mother board Mega 2560 and 4988/DRV8825. Owning to its stability in operation and great compatibility with most 3Dprinter (all reprap-model such as pursa i2 and i3). The combination of Ramps1.4+MEGA2560+A4988/DRV8825 is becoming a mainstream of DIY 3D printer control board. Features
Easy CNC conversion of a small mill Why not a 3D printer? I think a lot more people have 3D printers than CNC mills and they're great tools. There's a bit of an overlap with a mill, but they both have their strengths and weaknesses. Comparing a mill to a printer we broadly have: Pros Cons Build a 30$ laser Scanner Here is the list of all the parts you need to build the scanner: · A bunch of M3 (16 and 20 mm) · A bunch of M4 (12 and 20 mm) Literary gold mine for CNC millers From 1976 to 1983, Popular Science magazine, along with the American Plywood Association, ran an annual plywood panel project design contest for its readership. Often the winning projects were items of furniture, but that was not a requirement. A potter’s kick wheel and a folding plywood boat are notable exceptions.
Reprap development and further adventures in DIY 3D printing: MENDELMAX - Quick-fit X and Quick-fit Extruder/s Back in October I started on a number of MendelMax builds. Time passes I got distracted by Christmas (and the excellent Slic3r) New Slic3r 0.7.1 out NOW! It has been a really amazing period from October-Feb with so many new machines being released into the community, my own needs and desires for the 'perfect' machine are now starting to materialise. MendelMax isn't 100% perfect, but it's the best machine I have built to date - and I really like it. MendelMax. I have now been using a 'finished' MAX for the last 6 weeks, It's really great, and easy to hack with, I have already upgraded quite a few parts and built a whole new X Carriage concept based on using the MAX for a while.MendelMax Created by kludgineer - the files and many derivatives can be found on Thingiveres Here - I have added links to my changes below -
