More than Chocolate! Cornell's Fab@Home

3D Printer Users

Our first encounter with the idea that one could actually own a 3D fabricator for under $10K was when we stumbled across the Fab@Home project''s web site. Dan Periard''s Flashlight The gallery of images of the things being made with the Fab@Home fabricator is a lot of fun to visit.

Will Fab@Home Succeed?

Wohlers Talk

Fab@Home has been receiving a lot of attention lately. Fab@Home is an open source 3D printer development at Cornell University. With the attention that Fab@Home has been getting, the guys at Cornell could popularize the term. What is it? Hod Lipson, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, and Evan Malone, a PhD candidate in Lipsons Computational Synthesis Lab, are working together on the project.

World’s 1st 3D Food Printing Conference Launches April 21

3D Printing Industry

Food printing pioneer, Jeffrey Lipton, one of individuals behind the Fab@Home 3D printer, will be there to discuss his company, Seraph Robotics, and his research in the field. By Michael Molitch-Hou. Some may be excited for 3D Print Week, hitting New York City next week, but something even more savory will be taking place in the Netherlands on April 21: the 3D Food Printing Conference.

and, turned up some excellent resources for learning more about Cornell''s Fab@Home and Desktop Factories view of the future. One of the great things about Blogging is being introduced to other Bloggers having similar interests. An email arrived today from Michael Berman, the Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Pasadena''s Art Center College of Design. He was letting us know that he was linking to one of our articles from his blog. Visiting his blog was a real treat.

Just Be Patient. 3D Printing Will Eventually Make it Possible

Cubify 3D Printing Fans & Fun

As I poured through the emails to see which ones I was willing to send off to oblivion, I ran across this one to Evan Malone, one of the pioneers of personal desktop 3D printing and a founder of the Fab@home project. A friend referred me to your web site regarding the Fab@Home project.

3D Printing is Coming Your Way!

Among the Build-It-Yourself candidates are the Fab@Home project ( ), RepRap ( [link] ). Make no mistake about it. 3D printing is on the way to our desktops.

Open-source 3D Printers

Wohlers Talk

Cornell University, with its Fab@Home project, was one of the first to develop an open-source 3D printer. Its possible to obtain the plans from the Fab@Home website and build a machine on your own. The Fab@Home system is the most versatile for experimentation, but the lower cost of the RepRap development makes it attractive for even the smallest organization or individual.

And Hod Lipson and Evan Malone of the Cornell University Computational Synthesis Laboratory, was dabbling in food with the Fab@Home project since 2006. Big companies like acquiring smaller companies and the biggest players in the 3D printing field are 3D Systems and Stratasys.

Paste extruder motor test

I came up with some rough prototypes and pitted Fab@Home''s non-captive stepper from Haydon (left) against our old favourite, the Solarbotic GM3 servo (right). I wanted to find out which motor lends itself best to a paste extruder design.

Cornell is Cooking up Some Cool 3D Printers!

Tales of a 3D Printer

In this awesome video, researchers Hod Lipson and Jeffrey Lipton, from Cornell University, discuss some of the ideas that have come out of Fab@Home project. They explain how food materials such as frostings were used first as support material but then quickly went to prime time. After people''s first taste (pun intended) of food printing, the experimentation quickly escalated. First up? Hydrocolloids - the same material used in the 3D printing of living tissues !

Moving towards production

Ages ago Zach defined an XML multi-part file format for RepRap (and Fab@Home) that should be pretty easy to implement that would allow one to store a whole tray of parts like this in a single file.

Announcing MakerBot Industries

RepRap Blog

We borrowed some of the best ideas from a few of the other open source 3D printer designs: a lasercut box from Fab@Home, electronics, software, and extruder designs from RepRap and combined them into something that is uniquely ours. If you''ve been wondering why I''ve been so quiet lately, then wonder no more! For the past couple of months, I''ve been working on getting a RepRap based company off the ground with the help of my friends Bre Pettis and Adam Mayer.

Universal Paste extruder - Ceramic, Food and Real Chocolate 3D Printing.


Various paste extruders existed for RepRap, Makerbot and Fab@Home and both peristaltic pumps and moineau pumps were being experimented for paste extrusions, I looked at some of these, but went a different route.
