Jonathan Keep, Self build Delta 3D printer. Annoyed and frustrated by 3D Systems buying out and then stopping the production of the RapMan 3D printer. This was the first kit printer Belgian design duo Unfold adapted to print with clay and has subsequently been copied and widely used by others, I decided to develop my own replacement 3D printer. Based on the delta type of 3D printer my aim has been to use parts that can either be made with basic DIY tools and skills, or ordered off the internet. The design is specifically for printing in clay but could be adapted to work with other materials. Many other self build 3D printers use parts printed in plastic but with this project I did not want to be reliant on already having access to a 3D printer.

From Concept to Reality: 3D Design and Printing for the Common Man. 3D printing has changed the way I think about how I interact with the world.
As I have learned to use the tools, I think a lot about how to use printing to make my world more functional, more exciting or just cooler! Being able to make something that doesn’t exist or that costs more than I want to pay has been inspiring and fascinating. And really, once you learn a few simple tools, it’s EASY and FUN!! There are many ways to go about making 3-D Models for printing. W.Afate 3D printer. Large Seamless 3D Printed Sculptures Now Possible with Krylon Fusion for PLA #3DThursday #3DPrinting. July 4, 2013 AT 2:00 am Many artists and designers have been switching to desktop 3D printers that print only in PLA from solutions printing in ABS, but this has lead to a whole host of questions about options for “post-processing” or “finishing techniques” (how to sand/score/paint/join) for these materials as most of the existing resources come from past 3D printing experiments and from architectural model building point to ABS and styrene related solutions, such as the popular industrial solvent acetone.
Artist Micah Ganske has been experimenting with the plastic-specific one-coat Krylon Fusion spray paints and has been having good success coating a massive assembly of parts to make it look as if it was produced that way. This is good news as most of the plastic-related adhesives and spray paints are designed with solvents not suited to PLA, but this one worked really well. Krypton Fusion for Plastic adheres pretty well to PLA without sanding or priming!
3D printers go!
Is Eco-Friendly 3D Printing a Myth? Melba Kurman, author, and Hod Lipson, Cornell University associate professor in mechanical and aerospace engineering, are co-authors of "Fabricated: The New World of 3D Printing" (John Wiley & Sons, 2013) and leading voices in the field of 3D printing.
They contributed this article to LiveScience's Expert Voices: Op-Ed & Insights as part of their new LiveScience series highlighting issues and developments in 3D-printing technology. A few years ago, the consensus was happily (and naively) positive that 3D printing was innately greener than conventional manufacturing technologies. The truth is that today, the jury is still out. Society is growing wiser and maybe a bit more skeptical. Dood présente DOM: Digital Object Maker, Imprimante 3D. The project Who are we?

Optomec launches new 3D printer for metal additive manufacturing. Jun.12, 2013 Optomec announced today availability of a new metal 3D Printer named the LENS 450. The LENS 450 is built on the same LENS core technology that is used to repair, coat and rapidly manufacture a wide variety of high performance metal components. LENS deposition systems use the energy from a high-power laser to build up structures one layer at a time directly from powdered metals. New Nylon filament for 3D printers, made in Italy.
Jun.13, 2013 Italian company 3ntr has launched a new nylon filament developed specifically for 3d printers. This 3mm polyamide 6 filament is made up of 99.9% PA6 Polymer, no plasticizers, no fiberglass, and 0.1% soap to ease processing. It is not as flexible as Taulman's Nylon, but it is aimed to print structural parts that must be able to resist static and dynamic loads. According to 3ntr, settings for printing polyamide 6 are similar to ABS, only the printing temps should be 240-280°C, and the best printing results can be obtained with layer thinner than 0.25mm.
In addition, Polyamide 6 has different adhesion properties from other common use plastic for 3D printers (PLA or ABS), 3ntr suggests users to use bachelite or nylon bed for the best result.
