Co-developed with the Poly University of Hong Kong, the Curiosity is an easy-to-assemble educational 3D printer which offers a super low-cost platform for educational purposes. 3D printing closes the gap between an idea or inspiration and the first prototype and enables people of all ages and backgrounds to make the leap to become an inventor! However, since most 3D printers still cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars, the price
Meet Hans Fouche, South Africa’s very own “King Of Makers” as dubbed by an article by Popular Mechanics SA. His Linkedin summary describes him as an Inventor and Engineer, that is fascinated with Rapid Prototyping, that have evolved into 3D Printing. His first “Rapid Prototyping” machine was build while he was Chief Aerodynamicist for the Brabham Formula One team 1990, to help him to build more models to test in the
Courtesy of JavaProgrammer over at Instructables here are 101 useful, practical and functional 3D printed objects.
Another win for the 3D printing community, the guys over at reprap.me have a fully functioning prototype and is now appealing to the community on Kickstarter to help bring their invention into full production. The Diamond Hotend is a single diamond shaped nozzel with 3 chambers allowing you to feed 3 filaments of varying materials at the same time with better precision and color blending. If you have a 3D printer this
This amazing 3D printer known as 3Drag, outfitted with a pastry bag or a heated syringe is capable of printing using any type of chocolate with great precision. To print with chocolate you will need to purchase an additional syringe extruder specifically designed for this purpose, the system works by heating the syringe to a lower temperature than conventional extruders. A needle inserted into the tip of the syringe is heated to a
This is the 5 speed transmission that comes bolted to the back of a 22RE. This is the 4WD version of the transmission so it has a mounting surface to bolt a transfer case to. I’ll work to get a 2wd housing designed up, since the only difference is the rear section of the transmission. The transfer case will be the next thing I will upload Fully working. All 5
Credits to mikelllc This project describes the design of a very low budget 3D Printer that is mainly built out of recycled electronic components. The result is a small format printer for less than 100$. First of all, we learn how a generic CNC system works (by assembling and calibrating bearings, guides and threads) and then teach the machine to respond to g-code instructions. After that, we add a small
If you are one of the lucky ones to own a 3D Printer then this STL (STereoLithography) file template might be worth looking at as a toy model of a Toyota 4 Cylinder Engine. Completely print a fully rotating model. Working crank, pistons, and valve train. The valves open and close!!!. It may not be the most exciting engine but its the only one I had in my garage. Great
