Fourth International Fab Lab Forum - August 22-23, 2007

3D Printer Users

The Fourth International Fab Lab Forum and Symposium on Digital Fabrication will be hosted in Chicago from August 22 to August 23, 2007. Fjord Boat Buoy Challenge Of course, fabricating a boat and keeping it afloat are two different challenges. Covering everything from nanoscale protein to large scale construction it draws researchers and industry leaders from around the world.

in the interest of science of course. Wouldn''t you know it. The industry hasn''t even gotten started yet and already its got its own Evil Mad Scientist. And, this is one dastardy dude!

The primary reason, of course, is that they use a photocurable liquid and if they didn''t build upside down they would have to build the objects in a tank holding all the liquid. We received an email this morning, from V-Flash, containing their latest newsletter.

in 2007. Of course, there will be limitations in size, dimensional accuracy, and material options, especially with the inexpensive systems. Note: The international conference titled The Custom Manufacturing MegaTrend: Where China and the West Fit In will be held on December 7 at EuroMold 2007 in Frankfurt, Germany. Historically, additive fabrication (AF) has been used for applications such as modeling, prototyping, and making patterns for silicone rubber molds.

Of course, they are hoping to develop future materials that may actually be strong enough to be used for production pieces. As we sit here in the heat with a dead air conditioning compressor, which will take some steamy days to replace, we''re wishing that the whole personal fabrication revolution was mature enough to allow us to build our own! But, we''re not quite there yet. We needed something to brighten our day.

Warped

HydraRaptor

If extruded into free air it would actually be 1mm at 4mm/s, but that is too course, so I move the head at 16mm/s which stretches it. Having got an idea of the HDPE warping for thin walled open boxes, I decided to start investigating solid shapes.

Dribble and smoke

HydraRaptor

Of course, once the overrun has occurred and been removed, there is a net deficit of material which manifests itself as a delay before extrusion starts when the motor is switched on again. The bug was easily fixed of course but I could not get the filament to stick to my table.
