In den 1980er Jahren gab der britische Usborne-Verlag (eigentlich bekannt für seine Kinderbücher) eine ganze Reihe von Computerbüchern für die damals populäten Microcomputer ZX Spectrum, den BBC Micro und natürlich den legendären Coomodore 64 heraus. Diese Bücher bietet der Verlag nun als PDFs zum freien Download an (frei wie Freibier).

While laser cutting remains the dominant force for rapid prototyping anything made of plastic, MDF or wood, the real holy grail is the ability to cut metal — something most laser cutters are just not capable of. In the industry, this is done using…

the most important question is why isn't adam, the guy who designed it, part of the project? obviously this is a project with major problems

Resin casting lets you produce parts that would be otherwise impossible to make without a full CNC and injection molding set-up. It costs about as much as a 3d printer, 300 to 600 US dollars, to get a good set-up going. This is for raw material, resin,…

They seem to be fairly significantly overestimating the price. For $300, you can get a compressor, a vacuum pump, a better paint pot than they suggest, a 1/2" sheet of lexan, all the fittings you'll need to modify both the pot and the lexan to make both a pressure pot and a vacuum degasser, and a pretty good starting supply of platinum cure silicone and enough two part resin to cast until you're tired of it.

The paint pot they're recommending for the pressure vessel is also a great way to potentially kill yourself, or at the very least aggravate the hell out of yourself. That particular style of chinese multi-rebranded paint pot doesn't seal very well, and to get a good seal requires you to crank down the retaining bolts so hard that you start deforming the lid.

This style: is the better way to go. Grizzly is a good source for them in the US, but they're also just a multi-rebranded Chinese made paint pot, and they go by many other names but all seem roughly identical. It takes slightly more modification than the Harbor Freight one the article mentions, but it'll make your life a lot happier (and safer).

...I also disagree with the idea that you don't need to vacuum degas your silicone. Maybe if you're only making small casts without significant surface detail, like those buttons, but if you're doing something more complicated you'll kick yourself when you pour $40 worth of silicone into a mold only to have it come out with surface bubbles or other imperfections because you didn't degas it.

"Its once famous remote-employee culture has been rolled back. Senior managers are no longer allowed to live afar and must report to the office. This was one reason why some senior execs departed or were asked to leave, one person close to the company told us."

Look ma, our robotic department made this
While there had been industrial 3D printers available years before desktop printers started to become popular, it wasn’t an especially widely used or known technology.

I love Zombies, Gaming, NERF Guns, MineCraft, LEGO, 3D Printing, Hackerspaces and there is almost no country in the world where i don't know at least ONE person who i could ask about their local TechCommunity.

I was the official Speaker of german GTUGs, the GoogleTechnologyUserGroups (now know as GDGs, Google Developer Groups)

I am also Founder of the GTUG Munich

If you want to get your TechEvent organized or evangelize your API, Gadget or Product, just ask me: i can be hired for exactly this. Plus i can be payed in LEGOs. No joke!

Ich bin jetzt seit über drei Jahren Kunde von Shirtfriends und inzwischen weiß ich: Wenn ich in T-Shirts für meine Events brauche, dann bestelle ich die hier. Kleine Anekdote: es ist Mittwoch (5ter Juni), 14 Uhr und am nächsten Tag ist Feiertag. Ich schreibe Shirtfriends eine Email: Ich brauche 150 Shirts, das und das Logo, Lieferzeitpunkt 7ter Juli (Freitag, nächsten Monats) und eine Stunde später klingelt das Telefon. Shirtfriends Geschäftsführer Robert Reuter sagt mir: also in Siebdruck können wir's nicht mehr machen bis Freitag, aber in Digitaldruck ist das kein Problem. Er hat sich zwar im Datum geirrt, hätte den Job aber hinbekommen. Wow.

Schlicht der beste Radladen der Welt. Man muss sich nur damit abfinden dass der Erfolg bisweilen dazu führt das es auch mal länger dauert. Also für die Inspektion mal etwas mehr Zeit nehmen, aber bei fiesen Pannen erwähnen das man das Rad dringend braucht, dann kümmert sich Mark auch entsprechend darum. Ansonsten: Top Qualität, Top Preis-Leistung, Top Alles
Quality: ExcellentAppeal: ExcellentService: Excellent
