Petter Forsberg, who studies at Chalmers University in Gothenburg/Sweden, has made himself a clever Segway-like device. Check it out above. :)
Recently we wanted to make an 3D-printable object on our Makerbot that filled a useful purpose. One way of finding out what to do is to analyse stuff that can be annoying and try to solve that problem.
Immediately we thought of the different ways people hang garbage bags. In most cases they get cramped into baskets or buckets which can have some disadvantages. The challenge then became to design a garbage bag holder that would be printable on our 3D printer.
You can see the result above and download the 3D files from Thingiverse.
Everyone who has watched Star Trek knows what a replicator is. In this video you can see a report from National Geographic about the Z Corp company and how they can replicate objects with laser scanners and 3D printers.
Ultimaker is now one of the latest additions to the fauna of open sourced 3D printers! Check it out at Thingiverse.
José Oliveira created this amazing home-made 3D printer that uses a DLP projector with UV light to create high-resolution 3D models.
To make a machine easy to build and repair, it is important to choose the right kind of fasteners. If you want to get a good overview of what standard fasteners there are, check out boltdepot.com.
Yesterday we had a fun evening and build a computer from parts. We also talked about future projects and ate pizza. :)
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! :)
