This evening we decided to be a bit destructive and take apart an old Epson laser printer as much as we could. It was great fun dissecting this machine! The inspiration for this event may have come from this wonderful movie! :)
In this video Adrian Bowyer shows how to 3D print PLA on a plate of glass with a Reprap 3D printer.
Massimo Banzi, one of the creators of the popular Arduino board talks about this phenomena and why they released it as open source.
We found this on the Internet and found it to be quite interesting. Perfect stuff for Mythbusters! :)
One of the projects that we have at Geekubator is the Open Source Photo Studio (OSPS). It aims to design and develop a hardware for image documentation of objects through hardware, photography and smart software. We have spent ages brainstorming, tinkering and defining concepts.
Now we are very proud to have started the hardware design in Kompas-3D CAD where we create all the hardware components. The whole design and matching software will be released under an open source license for everyone to download.
The screenshot above shows a very simple but crucial component of the OSPS. It is the spin table and measures 500 mm in diameter and 22 mm in thickness. The five holes are for holding small magnets for object positioning purposes.
Stay tuned here at geekubator.org for more information about the Open Source Photo Studio.
This video shows some really cool hand-made wooden gears.

Junior Veloso seem to be a very very clever guy. He has managed to create this home-made 3D printer which created 3D models by curing a photopolymer with a DLP projector. Read more here.
