Hello everyone, For a project I am doing, I want to use brass inserts of M2 or smaller, but I can only find M3 and bigger (e.g. rs-components). I need the inserts quick, due to the deadline of the project, so preferably I want to get the components in the Netherlands (or at least Europe). Thanks in advance for your help! Jesse
Stijn here from 3D Hubs. As some of you already know we are working on a knowledge base: An extensive 3D printing resource for professionals. One article we are working on, written by a hub, discusses the key 3D printing technology (FDM, SLA, SLS, Polyjet) selection- and design considerations for clearance, transitional & interference push-fits.
Hello. I designed a cigarette holder but do not have access to a 3D printer. If you have a 3d printer and happen to smoke, please try printing my cigarette holder... http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1711944 Let me know how you like it! firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks, Slava
Last week I asked you to list some good visual prototyping questions and received some insightful responses. I'd like to expand a bit upon that thread and figure out what the common research questions are for four prototyping stages: Proof of principle prototypes: To test technical aspects of the product before investing in a more functional version
I am noodling around with the idea of creating a model to 3D print a specific set of out-of-production tennis racquet grommets for my tennis racquet. At this point, it's just a vanity project to kill time, but it's also really to test the difficulty of mapping the design, as well as the viability of a 3D printed product.
On our platform we see a lot of visual prototypes being printed. With a visual prototype I mean a prototype that resembles the actual product in look, feel, material, and dimensions. A visual prototype captures the size and appearance, but not the functionality, of the intended design.
My main goal is prototyping so print quality is most important to me. What would be some models to consider in my price range?
The RZR MKR™ competition has been awesome and we’ve seen some amazing 3D printed razor handles created by people all over the country. We’re delighted to announce the winning designs that will be on display in the RZR MKR™ shop in BOXPARK, Shoreditch the 9th – 14th of August. We hope you and your friends will come to the shop to design, personalise and 3D print your own razor handle!
Hi, 3DHubs! Lately, we've been working on this new PLA that mimics high-performance materials (e.g. Ultem) when it comes to strength, but it's a lot easier to work with. It's possible to apply on many more printers, therefore doesn't require any expensive industrial devices to begin with.
Hi guys I'm new to 3d printing and would like to begin printing personalised tennis dampeners (rubber like object that sits between the tennis string of a tennis racket to reduce vibration). What machine and filament would be the best to use? Please remember I am new to this and would like to keep costs low initially so i can test the concept. Thanks in advance for your help. Fabio
I am looking for someone who is willing to sit down with me and discuss a prototype design and possibilities. It would involve an NDA. I am clueless about cost, materials or options. We are a new company with a product that is in process of being patented. The product is a very simple design. It would involve very little design work.
Need to talk with someone about printing a prototype for an invention. Are 3D printers able to making working models at all?
I have to print a prototype of a turbine for a project, and I was wondering is it an option to use recycled filament instead of ABS? Since I'll probably go through several iterations, I might as well the sustainable route. Thanks for the help!

Hello Everyone, I would like to share my newest 3d print design with you. The Turbine Top is a 3d printed spinning top designed to accelerate as air passes through it. My inspiration was the feeling of sitting in your seat looking out the window during take off, and listening to the hum of the spinning turbines on a big Boeing 747.
I have been working on this for a while now and you can't imagine how excited I am, so here it is... BATSY, this project is inspired and dedicated to my baby Emma Rose https://www.behance.net/gallery/35134797/Batsy
