Resuming Failed 3D Prints Automatically

Resuming Failed 3D Prints Automatically

What occurs to your 3D printer if the ability goes out? What occurs if there’s a jam within the nozzle? What occurs in case your filament breaks, runs out, or turns right into a plate of spaghetti? For all these conditions, the print fails, losing plastic and time. For his Hackaday Prize entry, [robert] has […]

3D-Printer Gets Hot-Swappable Hot-Ends

3D-Printer Gets Hot-Swappable Hot-Ends

3D printers might be hacked into a mess of helpful machines, just by changing the filament extruder with a brand new attachment corresponding to a laser engraver or plotter. However, [geggo] was fed up with re-wiring and mounting the printhead/software each time he wished to attempt one thing new, and got down to design a […]

Researchers can now create 3D-printed structures made entirely of liquid

Researchers can now create 3D-printed buildings made fully of liquid

Scientists at Berkeley Lab, together with the Department of Energy, have devised a approach to assemble 3D buildings completely made from liquid. They used a modified 3D printer to inject tiny streams of water, some as small as one millimeter in diameter, into silicone oil to sculpt tubes of liquid inside one other liquid. This […]

Can You 3D Print an Axe?

Can You 3D Print an Axe?

3D printers hit the scene in a giant manner within the final decade, and due to the fixed enhancements that we’ve seen since then now you can get a good one, assembled or as a equipment, for an affordable worth. The one main downside is that the majority of those printers are restricted to printing […]

Handheld Propulsion Is Noisy, Awesome

Handheld Propulsion Is Noisy, Awesome

Lithium batteries are ubiquitous, low cost, and extremely highly effective. Combine them with some brushless DC motors and also you’ve acquired critical energy in a compact package deal. [Ivan Miranda] decided to use this to his advantage, building the Handheld Self Propelling System #1.  Yes, we’ll come proper out and say it – it’s an […]

Giant F1 Car Is 3D Printed and Radio Controlled

Giant F1 Car Is 3D Printed and Radio Controlled

The OpenRC F1 automotive is a radio management automotive you may 3D print and assemble your self. You make the components, glue them collectively, after which add your RC gear. That’s all properly and good, however might it’s finished… greater? [3D Printing Nerd] decided to tackle this one at 4x scale. It goes with out […]

A High Speed, Infinite Volume 3D Printer

A High Speed, Infinite Volume 3D Printer

One of essentially the most attention-grabbing developments in 3D printing in latest reminiscence is the infinite construct quantity printer. Instead of a static mattress, any such printer makes use of a conveyor belt and a hotend set at an angle to provide elements that may be infinitely lengthy in a single axis, supplied you will have the […]

The End of the Candy Rainbow

The End of the Candy Rainbow

About a decade in the past [Windell Oskay] and [Lenore Edman] spun out of Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories to work on CandyFab, a reasonable 3D printer utilizing sugar as its medium. Wondering what occurred to CandyFab? It’s been practically that lengthy since we final wrote about their work and Maker expertise has moved on. 3D printers run the […]
