Carbon3D – Terminator Inspired 3D Printing Technology

The Carbon3D startup recently presented a prototype exploiting a new approach using resin, light, and oxygen to accelerate conventional DLP/SLA 3D printing at a TED conference in Vancouver. 3D printing advances and lower pricing now allows us to dream about ideas and quickly create parts in the comfort of our homes. Despite its usefulness, 3D […]

Salvaging Interrupted 3D Prints (Repetier-Host)

3D Printer interruptions are rare but not unheard of, especially if you are running multiple memory-intensive applications or if you have multiple USB peripherals. When this happens you can usually take note of the last instructions sent to the printer before it stopped and modify your G-code in order to restart from the appropriate line. In this article, […]

Airtripper’s Bowden Extruder – Rostock 3D Printer BI

As part of our work for the construction of the Rostock 3D Printer BI Edition, we modified Airtripper’s original extruder. Our initial goal was to reduce the complexity of the extruder while maintaining the same functionality. Our efforts were initially focused on replacing the idler/tensionner body strut with a printed part that would support it just […]
