Over the summer, students moving our 3D printers to and from the AggieSTEM summer camp sessions accidentally dropped three 3D Printers into a pit due to on-campus construction they were trying to lift the cart over, resulting in various types of damage to the MakerBot Replicator, RostockMax delta and MendelMax cartesian printers.       In order to prepare to give the free 3D Printing classes for Element14, I began repairing the three printers to get one into operational shape. Th ...
3D printing has brought serious innovation to all industries that rely on manufacturing processes. With electronic production generally being outsourced and not so much under personal control, the oversight and specification of electronics is more-so a take it or leave it kind of market. Customization in hardware is usually expensive, or hard to come by if not and requires some sort of insider connection.   With 3D printers and additive manufacturing technologies, there is no doubt that pe ...
3D printing has rapidly expanded in capability and accessibility not only to businesses but individuals alike.   Additive manufacturing technologies are changing the way that things are produced and manufactured. From food to airplane parts 3D printers have taken the manufacturing industry and flipped it on its head.   Cubify's 3D printers are no exception to the progressive technology shift that is being seen in publicly accessible and affordable 3d printing technologies. With an in ...
3D printed Saxophone fully assembled. (via Professor Olaf Diegel's ADD Guitars) Ah, nothing beats the sultry, silky tones of an alto saxophone in the midnight hours.... unless they're playing 'Careless Whisper.' Nonetheless, saxophones can be expensive due to the materials used. Professor Olaf Diegel of Lund University, in Sweden decided to change that by creating a nylon 3D printed saxophone. While the nylon material may remind you of being forced to play the recorder in grade school, th ...
