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. Laser cutting and engraving – design, make & build your own products with Ponoko. 20 Amazing Creations You Can Make With 3D Printing - Hongkiat. If you can print in 2D, can you print in 3D?
Well, the technology is already here. Italian 3D-Printing Company Creates Unique Furniture Combining Traditional Craftsmanship & 3D Technology. Italy is quickly emerging as a competitor in the global 3D printing market in no small measure thanks to one company, 3DiTALY.
One of the company’s founders, Antonio Alliva, and his design team showcased 3DiTALY’s latest project in late April at Milan Design Week, truly an important world stage for all things furniture. One of the primary goals of 3DiTALY is to explore the potential for combining 3D scanning and printing technology with traditional furniture design techniques, and the project, titled “Eggform,” did just that. 3DiTALY, which began a decade ago as a kind of experimental laboratory, offers a wide range of services, including workshops, labs, a retail and exhibition space in Rome that invites visitors to explore 3D printing.
It also maintains a thriving online presence, providing a broad range of 3D printing services, and hosts a thriving online 3D printing community. Cults ・ Buy and sell 3D models for 3D Printer.

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. 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.
Costing less than a CNC machine or 3D printer! (~$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 MicroSlice uses Grbl v0.8 for motion control. Grbl converts G-Code into commands that the EasyDriver stepper motor controllers understand. We need another program to send the G-Code to Grbl, for this I'll be using Zapmaker's Grbl Controller v3.0. Before you can begin you will need the Arduino IDE, available from the Arduino website. Make sure your Laser Diode is not connected to the power lines while you are configuring your MicroSlice. The Laser will power on & off during the setup & configuration process if it is connected. Grbl's wiki shows you how to flash the pre-compiled Grbl hex file onto your Arduino.
For those of you who have a Raspberry Pi, as I do, you'll be pleased to know that you can control the MicroSlice using your Pi! Arduino Laser Engraver. When I originally designed the machine, I only wanted it to engrave regular bitmap picture files. So, I made three separate programs, which when used together, allow normal bitmap pictures to be engraved onto wood. C# Program (Generates "instruction" text file) This accepts a bitmap file and outputs a text file, containing "instruction characters". The bitmap type it accepts is a 24-bit bitmap, with only black and white pixels (no greys / colours). The program analyses the bitmap, scanning row by row for the black pixels that need to be engraved.

Treacle-black plastic oozes from a nozzle at the bottom of a small tower in Amsterdam, depositing layer upon layer of glistening black worms in an orderly grid. With a knot of pipes and wires rising up to a big hopper, it looks like a high-tech liquorice production line. But this could be the future of house-building, if Dus Architects have their way. On this small canal-side plot in the north of the city, dotted with twisting plastic columns and strange zig-zag building blocks, the architects have begun making what they say will be the world's first 3D-printed house.
“The building industry is one of the most polluting and inefficient industries out there,” says Hedwig Heinsman of Dus. “With 3D-printing, there is zero waste, reduced transportation costs, and everything can be melted down and recycled. Una empresa china fabrica 10 chalets adosados en 24 horas, con una impresora 3D. La empresa china Winsun New Materials ha construido 10 chalets adosados en solo 24 horas, usando la tecnología de impresión 3D, una técnica que últimamente no deja de darnos sorpresas. 3D Printing Construction - English. +Project. 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.
