V-Flash at EASTEC 2007 Exposition

3D Printer Users

As this is being written the V-Flash 3D printer is being displayed on the exhibition floor at EASTEC 2007. The V-Flash 3D printer is expected to be released sometime this year at a cost of $9,900. 3D Systems does have a web site dedicated to the V-Flash 3D Printer. We wish we were there. But, since we''re not, we''ll do our best to find someone that was.

A first look at the Desktop Factory 3D Printer

3D Printer Users

It''s a part that was printed in the Desktop Factory printer and then smoothed. To see this in terms of dots per inch (dpi) in an inkjet printer it would mean that the layers are the equivalent of 100dpi and the finest resolved detail would be just 25dpi.

We''re very thankful to JANDSCREATIONS.COM for providing a forum where we can discuss 3D Modeling as it relates to Desktop 3D Printing. If Desktop 3D Printing is to become as popular as 2D printing, then a much wider range of users will need to feel comfortable with 3D modeling.

Hear better via a Desktop 3D Printer!

3D Printer Users

3D Systems has announced that they are partnering with Dreve Otoplastik, a hearing aid manufacturer to deliver custom made hearing aid shells using a special version of the V-Flash 3D printer (Model HA 230). We hate relying on news releases for information. They''re so predictable. like there''s a class that everyone goes to learn the rules for writing them and swears they will never deviate from the rules.

It''s one thing to have a 3D printer; but, it''s not very useful unless you can send your part or masterpiece to it reliably. And, the company that released it was 3D systems, the makers of the V-Flash Desktop 3D Printer!

Desktop Factory now in Beta!

3D Printer Users

Desktop Factory Newsletter - July, 2007 This is great news. The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California has been using a variety of additive fabrication systems for some time and has wide experience with 3D printing. We now have both of the latest low-cost commercial desktop 3D printers now in beta which puts us one step closer to having them on our own desks The July newsletter from the Desktop Factory indicates that beta machines are now in the field.

New Images on Desktop Factory Web Site

3D Printer Users

As the beta testing continues, Desktop Factory has added some new photos of the output of their desktop 3D printer. The latest images show some real improvements in the surface and success at printing more intricate designs. Layer alignment seems greatly improved in these new images. Notice the size of the Maze and how smoothly the sides printed. Earlier samples showed some slight misalignment from layer to layer so these images represent some great news.

Making 3D Music With RepRap

3D Printer Users

This site is dedicated to any and all 3D printers or fabricators in the sub-$10K price threshold. Most of the build-it-yourself systems use extrusion as the means for building a 3D object. OK, so it was a corny title. But, it''s late and I had to write SOMETHING to go in that space! That includes both commercially built products and those you can build yourself. The RepRap project falls into the latter category.

Will Fab@Home Succeed?

Wohlers Talk

Fab@Home is an open source 3D printer development at Cornell University. About a dozen people are building one and three are complete and running, according to a March 5, 2007 story published by The Engineer Online , a web-based publication in the UK that quoted Lipson. Lipson and Malone refer to the 3D printer as a fabber, a term that was introduced about 15 years ago. Fab@Home has been receiving a lot of attention lately. What is it?

Open-source 3D Printers

Wohlers Talk

Open-source 3D printers are being developed by a number of people and organizations worldwide. Cornell University, with its Fab@Home project, was one of the first to develop an open-source 3D printer. An estimated 123 systems were installed in 20 countries in 2007 and 2008. A relatively recent development that is quietly unfolding could have an interesting impact on the additive manufacturing (AM) industry.
