A couple of months ago I wrote on Talk about my razor start-up, the Ockham Razor Company. We have now lunched it on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter! I could never have got this far without 3DHubs. Not only did 3D printing help with the actual design process, it's also let us get to a stage where we can really show people what our product will look like.
Hey guys, a few weeks ago I was scanned with the structure sensor for the iPad at the office. Only after 5 minutes, the physical me was immortalized in a digital version. Damn, that was fast and with an unexpected high quality. My input? Just standing still and be scanned (filmed) as a real movie star.
Some of youmay have already been invited to the first 3D Hubs Workshop on Colorfabb filament in Boston. For those who have not, it will take place at Danger!Awesome on May 16th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Tickets are $15.00 and include:
This is a very special day today - we’re launching a “Get this printed” button on Thingiverse! This connection means that we’re enabling over 700,000 designs to be printed in over 150 countries! The details about this can be found here
Filabot is proud to announce that we are in the process of teaming up with Ben and Jerry's locations to up-cycle their spoons into pellets and filament! This is another step we are making towards responsible use of plastic waste and it just so happens that Ben and Jerry's is passionate on making their waste less wasteful.
This is an informal "field trip" meetup that will take place at the Watch City Festival in Waltham MA May 9th. This is a FREE Steampunk themed event held at and around the Waltham commons. I'll have a vendor's table and I'm happy to act as a home base for groups of Hubs... Hubbers(?)
Helping Fab Lab Hub 3D Print prosthetic hands for kids and adults https://socialseam.org/events/19 What happens when you mix 3D Printing with Crowdsourcing to help people who need prosthetic hands?You change people's lives!
Hi everyone - I was given the opportunity to present my experiences with the e-nable platform as a maker and designer. The meetup was held at FabLab Breda in the Netherlands and visited by, printing enthusiasts, 3D designers and professionals in prosthetic development and design. Personally I learned a lot from the interaction, feedback and I believe there was great reception on the project.
Hi all, I'm trying to get a complex design printed. It's like half a sphere with the round part downwards, small flat piece to make it stand. Cannot be printed upside down. The overhang starts pretty much straight away. I got it printed sucessfully at a professional company and could order here with loads of support material. Twice the amount of the design actually!
Hey everybody, Im Wes, Ive been printing for a while now but im new to the hub. Have most of you all been doing 3D printing by yourselves or do you have people who do it with you? Ive been thinking about starting a maker club in Jackson. Thoughts?
We are a company that develops and sells technology equipment across the world but we have an office here in the north east side of (Metro) Atlanta. We have and use a 3D Printer all the time so what the heck, we are setting up a hub in order to provide prints to the world at large when our printer is not working for us or for me to make toys for my kids.
There must be zillions and zillions of calibration blocks out there measuring exactly 20 x 20 x 10 mm! Or do they really have that dimension? :) Measuring the objects made by a 3D printer and calibrating the settings accordingly can be a tedious but fun task to do.
Just want to let everyone know that we've started a new hackerspace on the westside of Chicago at Bethel New Life, 1140 N Lamon. The goal is to be a place for people in the Austin and westside community to come and learn about 3d printing and some of the new manufacturing technology coming out for the average person. Our other main focus is helping people rapid prototype their inventions in orde
Ringraziamo tutti i partecipanti al workshop che hanno testato con noi tanti nuovi materiali! Pubblicate i risultati delle vostre prove di stampa con i nuovi filamenti e inviateci suggerimenti per i prossimi eventi :) Grazie alla vostra partecipazione la community continua a crescere insieme alla tecnologia della stampa 3D!!! Stay tuned ;)
I printed Marvin today in white PLA and wonder if any of you more experienced users have ideas on how to improve the print quality. At arms length it is fine. The closer that you look though, the layers are more visible. In particular the keychain loop is very granular looking. See attached photos. Thank you for your help! Steve
For the unfamiliar, Tinkercad is a cloud based 3D modeling software that’s a part of Autodesk’s 123D design suite. I’m a huge fan because its pretty straight forward and simple, but surprisingly powerful. If you combo Tinkercad with a program like Meshmixer, you can cover a lot of your design needs for 3D printing.
Merci à tous d'être venus à notre atelier à Montréal (Québec) Canada d'impression 3D sur le nouveau filament XT-CF20 (la fibre de carbone) de ColorFabb! Thank you to everyone for coming to our 3D printing workshop in Montreal (Quebec) Canada about the new filament from ColorFabb XT-CF20 (carbon fiber)!
Hi, I am now for 3 months using with my Felix 3.0. He does indeed work fine, I am very pleased with the device. There is one thing I would like to, Marvin on 5 star quality printing. That is tricky. The sharp overhanging edges and of the ring on top are not really tight printing. The following testing done: printing very slowly, so that the cooling is sufficient.
Figure I would see if any other hubs or people want to a Coventry 3d printer user meet up. Bring prints or not and have a chat. Let me know if there is any interest. Cheers, Hilary
Any other Tiko Kickstarter backers here? Tiko is a unibody delta-configuration 3D printer available during the Kickstarter for only $179. There are only a few days left in the KS campaign so you should check it out. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tiko3d/tiko-the-unibody-3d-printer Are there any other backers here? If so, let's chat!
