Gigabot 3D Printer Goes Large - 3D Printing Industry

Gigabot 3D Printer Goes Large - 3D Printing Industry | 3D Printing in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

re:3D — one of Austin’s newest start-ups: Gigabot with its USP is all about size: A considerable increase compared with other 3D printers at the same level.  “our project is aimed at designing the first large-format 3D printer… that you can take home with you. It’s not only about taking the amazing technology of 3D printing and amplifying it. If we’re successful, we can envision entire markets opening up to use this technology. Markets which have struggled to maintain the status quo, let alone use some of the cutting-edge technology that for the rest of the world is an overnight delivery away. We believe that by making a production-quality model of our 3D printer, and putting it in the hands of small businesses anywhere on the planet, will give them the flexibility to sustain their community, their business, and ultimately, the world we live in.”

MIT Creates Smart 3D Printer - 3D Printing Industry

MIT Creates Smart 3D Printer - 3D Printing Industry | 3D Printing in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

A group of MIT researchers have devised a 3D printer addon that can be attached to any standard 3D printer and detect and then print on a different object on the print bed using a laser scanner and some custom software.

Starting with their Solidoodle 3D Printer, MIT students Claudio V. Di Leo, Louise E. van den Heuvel, and Sumant S. Raykar created an add on that uses a laser scanner and a webcam to detect the placement and orientation of an item left on the print bed. Then it can build a point cloud of the object that can then tell the 3D printer how and where to print on it. This means that you could print an object with two materials without needing two print heads or resume printing a job that was interrupted or failed...Read More....

Legacy Recycled Plastic Extruder - 3D Printing Industry | 3D Printing in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

When we covered Liz Havlin’s recycled plastic desktop extruder last May she was just testing the Kickstarter platform to find out whether her idea of a machine capable of extruding FDM filament from recycled plastic pellets would be appealing to the 3D printing community.

Apparently it was and it is, since her project shot through the Kickstarter funding goal of $5000 and is already 60% past that with still close to one month left to go. Granted, $5000 was not a very high goal, particularly considering what Liz has in mind — an open source system to help the world rid itself of plastic waste...Read More....
