Sandboxr at GDC: 3D Printing Made Simple

Sandboxr at GDC: 3D Printing Made Simple

This 3D printing video was interesting: At the 2013 Game Developers Conference, we chatted with the founder of Sandboxr, a new service that lets you up order full-color 3D printed figurines on demand. Learn how their web-based 3D modelling tool works and how they’re able to produce high-quality 3D prints. Via: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDxRVJANES4

Slic3r 0.9.8 v. KISSlicer 1.0.9.7

Slic3r 0.9.8 v. KISSlicer 1.0.9.7

This 3D printing video was interesting: Slic3r 0.9.8 v. KISSlicer 1.0.9.7 I’ve spent most of my day printing “real” parts. So far, I haven’t done any cutsie stuff, although my daughter wants an owl. I ran three of the same parts using Slic3r and three with KISS. The surface finish on the Slic3r parts was [...]

Nautilus gear vs [Slic3r vs KISSlicer]

This 3D printing video was interesting: Here’s a comparison of the two slicers in action pitted against each other trying to crank out the nautilus gear from this thing http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27233 on a Printrbot+ decked out with lots of upgrades. i tried to match the two slicers as close as I could with speed and other [...]

Get PLA to stick to your Printrbot build platform with Hairspray or ABS juice

This 3D printing video was interesting: I was having alot of trouble with PLA since I ran out of ABS. The PLA never wanted to stick to the platform among other problems. After searching I found that hairspray or ABS juice can solve those problems. Here I show you how to apply the hairspray to [...]

3D Printed Crossbow

3D Printed Crossbow

This 3D printing video was interesting: I designed a fully 3D printed crossbow. It prints out all in a single piece, no assembly required. The post about it can be found on : http://www.trenchphysics.com/?p=131 The model can be found on: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:60343 Follow me on twitter @trenchPhysics : http://twitter.com/trenchphysics Via: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0hZ038-y1Y

Practical 3D Printing: Julia Vase

Practical 3D Printing: Julia Vase

This 3D printing video was interesting: Featured on http://www.robots-dreams.com I get a little bit frustrated seeing how rough the surface finish is on many of the 3-D parts posted on the Internet. I’m sure that most of the 3-D printers out there haven’t been calibrated or tuned properly to produce the best parts. Working with [...]

Tying Water in a Knot

Tying Water in a Knot

This 3D printing video was interesting: Reporting in the journal Nature Physics, William Irvine and Dustin Kleckner, physicists at the University of Chicago, describe the knotted fluid vortex they created in the lab — a scientific first, they say. The knots resemble smoke rings — except these are made of water, and they’re shaped like [...]
