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 […]

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 […]

Improvements between BI V2.0 and V2.5

After our very successful Kickstarter campaign for the BI V2.0 3D printer we immediately decided to re-invest and vastly improve the proposed design. The number of upgrades and improvement was such that the new machines would be versioned as BI V2.5 to reflect these advances. In this article, we aim to document the major improvements […]
