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 […]
3D printing also known as additive manufacturing (AM) is a process of making three-dimensional objects through an additive process in which successive layers of material are laid atop one another to form a desired shape. AM can be traced back to the 1980s when the first forms of AM equipment and process came to life […]
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 […]
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 […]
While working on the Rostock 3D Printer BI edition we also tested different types of PLA filament spools. Although most of the spools that we worked with were similar in that they held 1 kg of PLA, they often had different inner diameters. We found that when working with different spools a versatile system was […]
The BI V1.0 Delta 3D Printer is assembled with a Cable Drive System that can be tricky to install without some pointers. This article will explain how to properly string each tower and will give information on what to look for when completing this task. 1) We start the stringing process with the 3D printed drive […]
