Hey, so my iPad wraps all slimmed down recently, so much in fact I got the price to drop $20. so the canvas wrap: block which was once a chunky $50 is now $30. All my other iPad wraps dropped too, conveniently in time for the holidays.

I was surprised how much material i was able to take out, just a reminder that taking another look at old designs w/ a critical eye can cut some cost.

Hi all,

Recently while musing about the possibilities with 3D printing, an idea for a device came to mind. I would like to share it in this post for brainstorming.

We are viewing at the new personal manufacturing technique as a "3D Printer" - as in a traditional computer peripheral device with the capability to print 3D objects. It seems natural, because we tend to adapt new ideas to be compatible with existing ones. But what if we try to imagine a different kind of device around this new technology?

Here is a description (and some amateur schematics) of the device idea.

Description:

The proposed device is cubic in shape (roughly little bigger than the size of a shoebox). 5 out of 6 faces of it are LCD screens. It runs a windowing system that shows different projections of a 3D object on different screens. So imagine it to be showing a model of a car, then the 5 faces will show the front, back, left, right and top views of the car. All the screens are touch sensitive. Users can view, rotate, zoom the model from all angles and manipulate different parts of it. For traditional computing tasks (like data entry), it can have an on-screen keyboard (like iPad) on the top screen.

After the modelling is done, user can hit a "Print" button. The device will have a 3D printing factory (makerbot?) inside its belly. As the user hits print the process of manufacturing will start. A progress bar will indicate how far the printing task has reached. When it's over, a bell will ring (like a microwave oven Smile. The user then can open the top screen of the box and will retrieve the finished object from inside the device.

Schematic screenshots:

Device with the top face opened as lid to retrieve the manufactured item
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_W6UcJjyXr24/TOo4rcbPp6I/AAAAAAAADrM/aoQwg_QdIK8/manufacter-2.png

Consider this device idea as an answer to this question:
bits :: atoms : computing :: manufacturing : computer :: ?

If atoms are the new bits, manufacturing is the new computing, what is the new computer?

I named it Manufacter.

Thoughts? - Too crazy? Lame?

Its been a while since I posted here, been super busy. Anyways, I just started to advertise on this site...its fairly new and I thought this would be a great place to get some feedback on the site. I only advertise because it deals with prototyping. Check it out, register and let me know what you think and others. Do you think this site will materialise into something? I just don't want to keep wasting advertising dollars, but I do like the fact that I can be first to advertise and have that great position and banner well quite frankly, for super cheap lol.

I look forward to hearing what you think.

Here is the site. www.prototypetoday.com

Seems like ZoomRP aka Solid Concepts is also now advertising on the site.

To All,
I work in lab that does all the glass SW parts. Many, many small, intricate, designs come through the lab. We attempt to print these designs even though many violate the 3mm wall restriction. Sections as thin as .5mm are known to survive the manufacturing process. But, the practical use of a finger ring that has a shank diameter of less than 3-4mm is just about, ZERO, ZIP, ZED, NIL, NADA. The same goes for pendants and earrings with micro proportioned hanging loops simply pasted onto the design. Hey, it's your money but, prepare for major disappointments the first time you try to wear these designs.

Glass is not plastic. It is unforgiving and will fail instantly once it's elastic limit is exceeded. Please think about this when considering parts made from glass

Someone built a printer based around a project and a liquid that reacts to UV. It projects a layer, raises the model a bit, resin flows, and another layer is projected. Really good for a home made printer, 0.1 mm layers and still some room to improve with the new glass he is waiting to get soon.

Which is the true "UP"/ Z Direction for printing: Height , Width, or Depth (in the order section on SW website)?

I ask because I've had several items printed, including three in Transparent Detail (Which is a lot more yellow then I thought) that had visible "stepping" across their side where they were laying down on their sides instead of standing upright.
(Before I got them the SW CS rep said they were having issues with this order and had to reprint them because they weren't printing with the expected quality.)

Finally, I found a way to export files for color printing without using 3ds Max in the pipeline for files. I used to export .vrml2 files out of 3ds, and it would "jumble" the geometry which is shown in the picture below. Exporting out of maya and meshlab, the model was as smooth as an .stl file

Here are the steps I took, I used a collada model out of maya, import into meshlab then export as an x3d.

http://www.opencollada.org/download.html - collada plugin
http://meshlab.sourceforge.net/ - meshlab download

1) First, size the file in Maya then export
2) Export as a collada file (.dae file)
3) Import into meshlab- there will be no texture on the model
4) Click on the Texture Parameter Tool on the top (view image)
5) Click 'browse' on the bottom right of the popup menu
6) Relocate the file (once in a while this will shut down meshlab, just reopen and it should work. My model is very high at 400k tris.)
7) Texture will appear, save as .X3D file!

index.php?t=getfile&id=5283&private=0

sorry the image is poor, I have to go to bed. hope this helps, the .vrml files' geometry coming out of 3ds max has been bugging me for a long time.

I'm curious - what do most of you guys/gals use to test your models before sending them off to Shapeways for a print?

I've opened many of my models in netfab and they look great... not sure how "accurate" what I see in netfab is vs real world. I'll of course do some real world testing but I can't check ALL my models (hundreds of them) and several are very large too.

Other than netfab, what else do any of you use to double-check things? I guess the same can be said about Shapeways's system too... if all looks as it should in both systems. Am I on holy ground to say "yes, it will work"?

Thanks,
Jon

Granted it's not really anything to do with 3D Printing or design, but I guess it's still something you can be doing while designing (like I am)!

I recently heard about the World Community Grid through Dinosaur Comics (I've joined their team). The World Community Grid is basically an infrastructure which allows non-profit organisations to tackle humanitarian issues for which they couldn't normally afford the computing power.

Basically, your computer requests data on a project from the WCG's server, it performs the necessary calculations, and sends the results back and asks for more work. This all just runs in the background using bits of your spare computer power.

Check it out, and you can help fight diseases while you work! Smile

Almost every day I get inspired by other shapies' ideas and creations. This doesn't necessarily mean that I want to order each inspiring model, but I wouldn't mind giving the shapies a "real" credit for their work. So while discovering Flattr this morning, I thought that this would be a great integration feature for the SW site. The way it works is described on the introduction page. So you can set a monthly Flattr amount, and that amount gets equally shared by all the things you flattr that month.

cheers, Ivo

As it is that time again, I'm working on collecting all my bills etc for VAT/BTW (as we call it in Holland) processing. If you're in my situation, you'll know what I mean, if not, be happy you don't need to Smile

Two things could make my life a bit easier:
- if every Shapeways invoice would contain all amounts, so with VAT, without VAT, VAT amount IN EURO's as well (according to the day conversion). It takes me a few hours (I'm slow) to do this and it could be automatized relatively easily, I imagine.
- If I would get an automatic overview of shapeways sales per quarter, including VAT which Shapeways has paid me in that quarter.

Problem is ever since England got kicked out I have been rooting for Spain. I don't want to see a Ned / Spain final but I also don't want to see Germany beat Spain tomorrow! Something has to give!... What a quandry...

I found this short news video on CNN, about the 3D printing industry. They make it sound like it's a brand new technology when it's not really, but still it's interesting.

Is there a way to send packages from Shapeways with UTF-8 characters in adress and name ?

these : ěščřžýáíé ?

I need to call them every time a receive a package, to correct my adress because they get wrong adress names.

Plus would it be possible to send them even my phone number, to contact me whenever needed ?

Hi all,

After a lot of effort by me and Shapeways-support (thanks a lot,guys and girls!) i can finally show the bowie that can be me in your own image or style!

The proces:
You need to download the zip-file.
In it you find a psd.
Psd's can be opened with the Gimp and many other programs.
And then follow the instruction in the file.

I hope some of you will test it out:)

Voor de gerenommeerde kunsthal De Vishal in Haarlem wil ik graag een expositie organiseren met Nederlandse beeldend kunstenaars die in hun werk gebruikmaken van 3D-prints (als onderdeel of als stand alone). Dit voorstel zou 10 juni aanstaande binnen moeten zijn, dus ik zoek met spoed mogelijke deelnemers aan deze expositie.

Dus: ben je een autonoom werkend beeldend kunstenaar die gebruikmaakt van 3D-prints in je werk, neem dan contact op met Eric van Straaten via info@eyedoll.nl

When helping people on the forum, one thing I always ask first, unless it's already stated in their question, is what software they are using. I think it would be helpful if there was a part in our profile where we could enter this and it could show up under our name or picture or something. That way it would be easier to asses the situation and the people with the best knowledge could help quicker.

As an electrical engineer I'm naturally curious toward new ways of circuit prototyping (I'm thinking : custom connectors)
Has anyone tried to measure the resistivity of these materials?


Thanks
