Simply put the fumeFan in front of the PCB that you are working with and adjust the airflow to your preference. It has features such as: Mamba3D - High quality open source 3D-printer by MyMatics. Do you want to experience the unlimited possibilities of 3D-printing?

Mamba3D - High quality open source 3D-printer by MyMatics

Are you looking for an affordable 3D-printer that delivers high quality prints and is easy to use? We have worked hard to make the Mamba3D printer better than others: simple to build, easy to use, high quality prints and low maintenance. ZeGo: multifunctional delta robot with 3D printing attachment. Working volume resembles hexagonal column.

ZeGo: multifunctional delta robot with 3D printing attachment.

Height of the column slightly varies depends on the toolhead but approx. is 230mm. Hexagon base dimensions are illustrated below. FABtotum Personal Fabricator. We also believe in the future of personal fabrication as an inspiration for an international, open and cooperative society.

FABtotum Personal Fabricator

As an Open Source project, FABtotum needs the help of the very people that can understand the consequences of technologically-improved social cooperation, just like any crowdfunding supporter. Funds will be used to start-up the production process and R&D for product and production engineering, allowing us to ship FABtotum in approximately 8 months.

Known risks are:Higher production prices due to few units sold, increasing the number of components we have to preorder, reducing our resources. System integrations (especially software/electronics) might require more time than expected. Delivery: digital delivery on your Indiegogo account email. International delivery included. Coupon delivery: digital delivery on your indiegogo account email. Please note: All Coupon codes are not cumulative and will expire if not redeemed before October 1, 2014. 3D Printer for Clothes. Open Source Ecology. X-Winder 2.0 : The Original Desktop Filament Winder by Turner Hunt. X-Winder is the World's first small scale, desktop, affordable filament winder.

X-Winder 2.0 : The Original Desktop Filament Winder by Turner Hunt

You can now build parts you've only dreamed of - and tailor them to your specific application - and do so at a fraction of commercial prices. Filament winding machines were invented during the space race of the 1960's and these machines are typically the size of a school bus and very expensive - now the X-Winder brings this technology to your desktop at an affordable price. Make Strong Lightweight Custom Composite Parts Build custom parts in fiberglass, basalt, Kevlar or carbon fiber. You can specify the details of each layer, winding angle, span, offset distance and other parameters, You can tailor the filament orientation to the direction of how loads will be applied to the part and build a lighter and stronger part.

Project ShapeOko: a $300 complete cnc machine. by Edward Ford

Update #2.1: To accommodate the requests, we upped the number of full kits available from 5 to 10. Update #2: We added another donation level! For $200 you now get everything from the $100 level + stepper motors and a power supply! That's a *full* electronics kit! Modular Desktop CNC Machine by AJ Quick. What is CNC?

Modular Desktop CNC Machine by AJ Quick

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. Embroidermodder 2 for Windows, Mac, Linux, Pi and Arduino by Jonathan Greig. Food, Clothing, Shelter.

Embroidermodder 2 for Windows, Mac, Linux, Pi and Arduino by Jonathan Greig

Everyone needs those. If you are wearing clothes right now, this project affects you! You won't have to be an embroidery expert or even own an embroidery machine to use our software. Our software will empower you to be able to create your own custom apparel. Although if you are a professional digitizer, we encourage you to support our project which in turn will help lower your operating expenses.

You can create your own designs or modify existing designs. For anyone who is not familiar with the cost of embroidery software, it's quite expensive, and in some cases, the quality does not reflect the cost. Embroidermodder has always been, and will always be an open source application. With open source software, everyone has the capability to try out the software at no cost to them. The interface itself is a CAD/CAM software but tailored for embroidery. CNC to 3d Printer by iMikeys.com.

Well, the story goes like this…..

CNC to 3d Printer by iMikeys.com

I wanted to build a 3D printer that had a working area similar to my CNC Taig Mill. The printers that came close to this size where WAY overpriced! I did a lot of research on different models and made the decision that I would build my own. RotoMAAK: Desktop Rotational Casting Machine by Mark VanDiepenbos.

Rotational Casting, also known as Rotocasting or Hollow Casting, is a molding process for creating many kinds of items, mostly hollow in form and typically made of plastic. The RotoMAAK rotocaster was born out of the desire to have a process by which Makers could scale up production of parts using rotational casting technology when 3D printing a small production run becomes cost and time prohibitive. The RotoMAAK rotational caster consists of a hollow mold and a rotational device that spins the mold in a uniform motion.

The hollow mold is filled with a charge or shot weight of air cure resin. It is then inserted into the RotoMAAK where it is slowly rotated (usually around two perpendicular axes) causing the liquid resin to uniformly disperse and stick to the walls of the mold where it slowly cures over time into the shape of the part.
