Two students from the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) in Switzerland have built a 3D printer with a three-axis tilting print bed, giving the printer a total of six axes. The 3D printer, still in its prototype phase, could be used to print objects with overhangs without adding supports.
When it comes to desktop 3D printing, we are still relatively limited when compared to the tools which larger companies have at their fingertips. While we are still leaps and bounds ahead of the manufacturing technology that makers and hobbyists had access to 5-10 years ago, we are still quite a ways off from being able to fully reap the benefits of self-manufacturing the products we need on an everyday basis.
CNC milling machine
After a fair amount of work we can finally presents you a tutorial on how to modify our 3Drag printer or K8200 printer to transform it in a perfect CNC milling machine, to be used for the production of PCBs, by incision. In addition, we also show you the procedures to obtain the G-Code file required for the machine to perform the contouring of the slopes and the drilling of the base: this starting from any Gerber file or from a project made with EAGLE software.
MakerBot Prints Well with Fewer Clogs—What’s Not to Like? MoreI’ve been 3D printing both internally and for client projects on a MakerBot Replicator2 for about three years now, pulling my fair share of 3D prints off the build plate during that time.
Latest Developments in Solar Powered 3D Printing Released by Michigan Tech .One of the things that has made 3D printing so helpful is its portability.
3D printers were everywhere at CES 2016, but Polaroid surprised many by diving into the 3D-printing market and unveiling a model of its own. Best known for its instant photo cameras, this company sure knows how to keep up with the times.
Autodesk has published the files for their Ember DLP 3D printer so that anyone can remix the machine’s design.
Layerless 3D printing might be the leapfrog innovation the whole industry has been waiting for, announced yesterday at the TED 2015 conference.
