"Buildatron Systems in New York City designs and builds open source 3D printers. The basic design is apparently adapted from the RepRap printer, but is much more robust.
The price for a fully assembled system is $2500, and a DIY unassembled kit is $1599. However, I went to the Buildatron online store page and could not see how to put a unit on order online. A contact number and email address is given there, so if you are interested in a printer you can give those a try.
Buildatron has several galleries of printer pics and parts pics here. Their blog is here.
If you would like to get into the research and design of 3D printers, Buildatron wants you to know that the company is looking for engineers and interns. You can contact the research and design department here."
The MOLECULE SYNTH is a unique musical instrument. It is like a traditional keyboard synthesizer that has been broken into its elements: speaker/amp, sound generator, and pitch control. With the MOLECULE SYNTH SET you decide how to put those elements back together using simple, color-coded, interchangeable hexagons. The MOLECULE SYNTH combines LEGO-like interchangeability with Synthesizers with Physical Electronics.
Those with strong cycling legs have ever more jobs up for grabs in Europe these days. A growing number of businesses are using cargo cycles, a move towards sustainable and free-flowing city traffic that is now strongly backed by public authorities.
If you were to take a shrink ray and point it at the Arduino – you would get something very much like the TinyDuino. The setting for “shrink” will have been pretty high because the TinyDuino packs all the punch of its big cousin the Arduino Uno in less than the size of a quarter!
Two MIT students created an ultra-compact machine with a detachable head.
A pair of MIT mechanical engineering students has developed the first truly portable 3D printer, which fits neatly into a metal briefcase.
PopFab—designed by MIT CADLab's Ilan Moyer and Nadya Peek of MIT's Centre for Bits and Atoms—can impressively be set up in just a few moments. In the embedded video you can see the students pull out a retractable arm, fix it in place, then connect up a laptop, along with the printing head and attached material source. The pair then sit back and watch the device spring into action, etching out the fish design being fed to it by the laptop.
Des centaines de personnes, alimentées par autant de sandwichs au pâté, qui se pressent devant des ateliers imprimante 3D, vélos augmentés ou ravioles faites maison : le premier Open Bidouille Camp organisé ce week-end a été une vraie réussite !
The KamerMaker is officially up and running! On Sunday we celebrated the opening of the world’s largest portable 3d printer in the front garden of our office. We had great weather for the opening and there was a large and diverse turnout. Thanks again to Carolien Gehrels, Deputy Mayor of Amsterdam for helping us officially open the KamerMaker.
