Tony Bannan's curator insight, December 29, 2013 5:59 PM

 

Fantastic innovation in design - sound waves control the direction of a laser and a water drip system controls the z axis.  Brilliant!


The peachy printer is a Photolithographic printer. That means it uses a controlled beam of light to cure light sensitive resin into hard objects. The peachy moves a laser beam along the X and Y axes to create the shape of the object, while using a drip system to control the level of the resin on the Z axis which determines the height of the object.
Software converts a 3D model and translates it into an audio waveform. It then plays the audio file out to the printer through the headphone jack in your computer. This waveform drives a pair of electro magnetic mirrors. The higher the volume, the higher the voltage, the more the mirrors move. The purpose of these mirrors is to reflect and control the path of the laser beam. By using the audio waveform generated from the 3D model data to drive the mirrors, we are able to get the laser beam to draw out the shape of the object. That's takes care of the X and Y axes.
Now let's talk about the drip system that creates movement on the Z axis. The salt water in the top container syphons down to a drip feed. The rate of this drip feed is controlled by a valve. As each drip leaves the feed, it passes through two contact points creating an electrical connection that is detected by your computers microphone jack. The drip continues to fall into the bottom container where it causes the resin floating atop it to rise. The software listens to the microphone level, counting each drip that falls and calculates the resultant level of the resin. This allows the software to send the layer that corresponds with the current Z-level of the resin. This process continues until the print is complete!

Sworoba OyetKep's curator insight, March 16, 2013 4:02 AM

In this article Industrial designer Joshua Harris proposes his concept of using a 3D printer to print the clothes we wear,The author focuses intends to sharpen the idea of 3D printing and applies it to his concept of manufacturing clothes within the comfort of your home. In order for a piece of clothing to be produced, the design of the clothing must be downloaded into the machine followed by cartridges of specially designed threads. The main concept of creating a piece of clothing is still being worked upon with a high potential of productivity in future years. The main limitation of the article is that is did not take an indepth look at this theory however it goes a reasonable good of giving a breif scoop so we understand the concept. This article will not form the basis of my research; however it will be useful supplementary information for my research other influences 3D printing will portray.

Shipping the fast, cheap MVP is still a great idea (much better than trying to think it all through and ship a well-developed product that doesn't fit the market needs) but getting the measuring bit right is key!

WTF: You’ve Got to Check Out the First Ever 3D Printed Tattoo | 3D-printing | Scoop.it
From toys and tools now to fashion and food in the future — 3D printing is well on its way to changing how we make things in our homes that we’re used to running out to the store to pick up. We’ve seen that concept expand to art (beautiful sculptures!) and even beauty (beautiful nail art!), but the latest 3D printing first has us wanting one of our own. The first 3D printed tattoo has been tatted. And you can tattoo it too.

Their sculptures take on a new dimension. Linlin and Pierre-Yves’ yearning to mix their cultures and desires gives birth to unexpected works that are full of meaning. Their work focuses on nature, knowledge, and human feelings. They most certainly want to share with and capture their viewers, and incite introspection.
