TinkerCad is a perfect tool to get started designing for 3D Printing thanks to it's drag and drop capabilities. Because it is browser based you never need to download or update the software. You always have the latest version.
Thanks again to the team at TinkerCad for putting the video together...
We have updated the downloadable files for customization now that we have been able to test the fit, especially around the corners for the iPhone 5, the case can be downloaded here, and the bumper here.
This is the first company that I have seen so far that offer replacement parts to be 3D Printed by their consumers. This is an incredibly smart move as it takes away the need for them to warehouse and distribute replacement parts. It also means that their fans have an opportunity to modify and customize aspects of their synthesizers.
We work hard to make our OP-1 users happy with free OS updates and added functionality. But sometimes we fail. As some have noted, the shipping cost of the OP-1 accessories is very high. This is because we can't find a good delivery service for small items. Meanwhile, we have decided to put all CAD files of the parts in our library section for you to download. The files are provided in both STEP and STL format. Just download the files and 3D print as many as you want. Next fail is the OP-1 manual update. We are almost there...we promise it will be ready sometime next week. Thank you all for your patience, we promise to work even harder in the future to make you happy.
We announced the contest to win $500 worth of Shapeways 3D Printing last week and have already seen a few designs for the iPhone 5 trickle in but we wanted to make it a little easier for you with a few 3D files to download that might help.
Please note we are waiting for the 3D Prints to come back and of course we have not yet tested them on an iPhone 5 yet.....
You can download the STL files to modify in your 3D software of choice as long as it supports STL import, we have also uploaded the case to TinkerCad along with the bumper and the dummy iPhone 5 so you can start customizing the design even if you do not have any 3D CAD skills, yet...
The iPhone 5 has now been announced and about go on sale on in the U.S. so we want to see what innovative new designs you come up with to 3D Print for the latest iteration of the iPhone to hit the market.
Walter Schreppers has configured his Raspberry Pi with a web interface to control his RepRap 3D Printer, perhaps this could be used for Zach Hoeken's BotQueue to scale up DIY manufacturing to control an army of 3D Printers.
You do not need to settle for this double disc of 70's nostalgia when you can design your own thanks to an Instructables by our latest hero Fred Murphy aka Fred27 aka Fred27.
"Attached you'll find the new version of my Fisher Price music editing
software. It's included as an executable and (if you don't trust
randomly downloaded software from the internet) the C# source code is
there too. Feel free to take a nose around in the source code and
compile it with the free version of Visual C# 2010 Express.
You'll also need a copy of OpenSCAD.
This amazing software allows the scripting of 3D CAD objects and is
what turns the idea of what you want into the STL file that a 3D printer
Wow - all this software and no need to pay a penny for any of it.
If this all sounds like too much trouble, then you can just open one of
the pre-generated STL files. Your jukebox comprises of Stairway to
Heaven, the Star Wars theme and You are my Sunshine. If none of those
float your boat then don't complain... get editing. I'd love to hear
what you can do."
