It was a lot of fun watching the C/Net Best of CES 2013 Awards ceremony live feed. Best of CES 2013 Award for Emerging Tech category! Award Best of Show CES 2013 CubeX CubeX 3D Printer That was especially true when I saw that the CubeX won the. I have no idea when I might be able to see, and possibly test, the CubeX for myself. When I made my first visit to see the Cube just after last year''s CES, I traveled to Rock Hill.

2013: A New Year and a New Focus

3D Printer Users

And, Lulzbot has announced a new, much larger capacity printer to be released 2013. And, of course, these are not the only players that we will be following in 2013. It''s been almost five years since the first entry in this blog. From the start, my interest has been on seeing the realization of low cost 3D printing beyond the realm of the hobbyists looking for the "build experience". And, for most of those 5 years, the goal seemed far, far away. But, 2012 changed all that.

Road to a fanless printhead - DIY radial blower cooling

Chopmeister's 3D Printing Stuff

You need a fan to print with PLA. I love PLA. I hate fan mounts. Fans are bulky and can potentially mess up your thermocouple readings (due to interference from the fan wires). I am a fan of fans in general, but not on a printhead.

Makerbot and Afinia at CES

3D Printer Users

CES 2013 Makerbot Replicator 2X It may surprise some that I have not mentioned Makerbot a single time in these forums. It is NOT because their machines don''t work and, presumably well. It''s because I have had a hard time trying to figure out how to cover their printers without saying something VERY negative about their claims being more than a little annoying.

Those of us that have to kibitz from afar for now, must be content to glean what we can from images that others post. But, there are a few things in the gallery of images that I would like to point out.

Haddon out - new bearing blocks and belt tensioners in

Chopmeister's 3D Printing Stuff

So, I finally got the chance to test my Ultimaker H-bot addon, or Haddon as I called it. Unfortunately, it can be described best with two words: it sucks. The main problem is the inherent gantry twisting found in all H-bot configurations.

We've got movement!

Chopmeister's 3D Printing Stuff

So I've been busy. I was so disappointed with the Haddon Mk1 not working I started everything from scratch. The result is less parts, less bolts, less gantry twisting and much easier and faster to print. We'll see where it goes from here, but all in all it seems to be working.

Well, DeltaMaker passed its first serious hurdle by meeting and exceeding their KickStarter funding goal of $107,000. With 22 days left to go in their KickStarter campaign, they have already raised. as reported a few minutes ago, $108,559! Congratulations to the DeltaMaker team! One of the things I like best about the DeltaMaker effort is that it is a TEAM endeavor. It''s not just a guy working alone.
