Driving 28BYJ-48 step motor with Pololu A4988 drivers. I have always liked the 28BYJ-48 motor because of its power and price, it also supposed to very reliable since it is used in different types of air conditioners.
Some information about the motor: This motor is very small but has enough power for most of the projects because it has a built-in 1/64 reduction gear. The result is a very small step of the motor which is 0,087890625 degrees per step. The reduction gear of course has its downiside which is the speed – you can typically drive this motor with maximum frequency of 100Hz which result in 100 steps per second which is 8,7890625 degrees per second.

Become a Partner. 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 - I built up a frame concept back in 2010 out of 20mm Extrusions, but it never got past this picture - It would have been an interesting machine.
Complete newbie step by step, 3D printer with all parts lists. Intro, prelude, or just: who is this meant for?
I wanted the title to include cheap, but lets face it: it is not cheap to build a 3D printer unless you have some/most of the components on hand or if you find just shy of £100 as cheap to make a tiny, not very good quality printer. This tutorial is all about starting from zero, figuring out and understanding all parts of a 3D printer and keeping costs down for this our very first build.
The upside is that all the items can be reused for a larger better printer at a later stage. I did that, and it Works wonderfully - better than an Ultimaker original in fact (proud).It should be obvious which one is made from old CD/DVD drives, and which one I reused my parts in later :) I opted for a small printer, but you can just ordre longer metal rods and get a larger cabinet, and you have a larger printer at the same cost.
I have not kept strict tabs on costs, but the final printer, which is awesome, amounted to a total of just over £200 or so. Combination CNC Machine and 3D Printer. How to make your own 2D CNC machine that converts into a 3D Printer and back to a CNC machine in less than an hour.

(~$1,000.00) In addition, the design will go further than the traditional 3D printer printing ABS/PLA, and move forward to printing with new materials such as 3D Printing Nylon derivatives like tauman 618 as well as Acrylic and PET. Latest Updates to this Instructable as of 9/12/2012: 1. Make Your Own 3D Printer Filament with the ExtrusionBot. There have been several attempts at developing a practical filament-making machine.
Is ExtrusionBot the one that succeeds? We’ve looked at a few similar devices and found most of them to be impractical for various reasons, not the least being quality of output. In today’s personal 3D printers (at least the plastic filament-based ones) the quality of input filament is critical. It must have highly consistent diameter, no air bubbles, consistent coloration, consistent chemistry for strength and be non-toxic. Any usable filament maker must be able to produce those results or it won’t be worth your trouble. Let’s take a look at the ExtrusionBot, said to be “The world’s fastest filament extruder”.

Under Revision: This Instructable is being updated to reflect the latest version of the DeltaTrix 3D printer, as produced for my Kickstarter project.
Until this message is removed, the update is still in progress. The entire previous version is still available in the form of a PDF (actual instructions + pictures) and a rar file (all other files). See below for the PDF and rar file. The current state provides sufficient information to build up a printer from a Kickstarter kit, but not yet enough for building up the latest version from scratch.
The DeltaTrix 3D printer is a capable and novel 3D printer, designed to be simple in construction, yet effective in functionality. Many thanks to Barrie for doing the video! Several improvements have been made since creating the initial printer. A tiny Arduino laser cutter. The basis for Groover's axis was the two mini stepper motors from the DVD-RW drives.
The motors drive the DVD head mechanism which either moved the laser cutting head, or the cutting table. My first starting point was to find a similar set of motors, and a reclaimed laser diode. However I wanted a slightly different design. Where Groover has the cutting table move on the Y Axis, I wanted a fixed cutting table. To do this I took my inspiration from a gantry crane. As the cutting table would be fixed, the cutting head must move along the Y Axis instead, but it must also accommodate the X Axis. Arduino Laser Engraver.
I started this project because I wanted to make something that had mechanical, electrical and software components. After looking around on Instructables, I figured that an Arduino based laser engraver would be an interesting machine to make, and that the machine itself could make interesting things. Laser diodes have also advanced quite a lot in the last few years, allowing reasonably powerful DIY laser engravers to be made without the hassles of laser tubes. This machine can engrave wood and cut paper. Arduino 3-axis Mini Lazer Paper-Cutter.

In the north of Sweden, a constellation of industrial and academic partners are about to start a three year journey to build a wooden house using additive manufacturing, and to work with the aim of making Norrland a leading region in the field of innovative and sustainable construction.
In writing a recent national innovation agenda for additive manufacturing , a process led by Umeå University, it was concluded amongst other things that Sweden, a nation of early adopters with rich natural resources, has excellent potential to lead the development of software for digital fabrication, design of and for new digital fabrication methods as well as the development and production of new mineral and bio-based pastes and powders for additive manufacturing. World's first 3D-printed apartment building constructed in China. Un robot imprimirá un puente de acero en Amsterdam. Una start-up holandesa quiere construir el primer puente impreso en 3D sobre un canal de Amsterdam, una técnica excepcional que podría convertirse en norma en construcciones de riesgo, anunció la compañía.
La empresa de ingeniería civil MX3D pretende utilizar impresoras robóticas que diseñan estructuras en acero en 3D: "esos robots son distintos, porque pueden imprimir, sin límite de tamaño, plataformas de construcción como las impresoras 3D tradicionales", explicó a la AFP la portavoz, Eva James. Esos robots, que disponen de largos brazos, "caminarán" a través del canal deslizándose de un lado a otro del puente, imprimiendo sus propias estructuras de apoyo mientras se desplazan por el aire. Creados para ese proyecto, los robots calientan el metal a una temperatura de 1500 grados centígrados para soldarlo y montar la estructura gota a gota, utilizando un programa que preparar los diseños.
