Prefab meets 3d printing - and China is doing it right now
 
fast!!
This month, architects in Amsterdam started work on the world's first completely 3D-printed house. It'll take three years and quite a bit of money to finish. Meanwhile, in Shanghai, a company claims to have printed ten houses with inexpensive industrial scraps in less than a day. What's the difference?

Remaining supports and Bowden extruder attached.

Next step is the electronics wiring and finally calibration.

I see, I'll be looking forward for your development!
I'm looking for the possibility of printing the body of my robot but I need a big printer like the one you are building, so I'll be waiting to see your future results :-)

Strung the pulleys and discovered another design flaw - pulleys aren't designed for increased height (need more room for wound line. Will build for decreased height/reach so I can print corrected pulleys.

+Mike Creuzer I meant bad spool in that it can't handle all the fishing line it needs to spool for the height of my design. Thus, I need to print a longer one.

I'm just waiting for the day when someone makes a room size printer that takes ABS pellets and uses a windshield wiper motor to melt and force the plastic out a ... ~3mm nozzle to make big 3D printed stuff fast.

OMFG!?!? Active Surplus has more than one location!?!? And one of the other locations is near work!?!?! EEEEeeeeeee :D

THANK YOU #googlemaps ! I was locating Lee Valley Tools near my workplace when I saw 'Active Surplus' on the map ... Google Maps showed it because of a previous rating I'd given to A-1 Electronic Parts. And that's how I discovered Active Surplus has more than one location!!!

Never been to the north York one but the original one is great! The website might make designers cry though

Progress Photos - Wiring!
http://zuberio.github.io/zustock

Making my own wiring cables definitely took longer than anticipated. If I had it to do over again I'd use screw terminal blocks and pre-made female jumper connectors (cut in half so one end is in a terminal block and the other connects to the ramps).

The wires are currently hanging all over the place because I couldn't find my @#$@# staple gun. #kingdomforastaplegun

Added motors, idlers, & end stops.

Next steps
- add remaining 4 strips of 6" wide 1/2" plywood in two corners for support.
- attach extruder
- string linear rods
- add wires & arduino + ramps
- test & calibrate

Was happy to discover that this KFC is halal. Had the Zinger burger - tasty. Place is a little run down but the food is good.

Went in Oct 2010 - On the bar side, the place was packed and it took us 30 minutes to score a table (understandable). But then my wife and I *waited 20 minutes without any service* and then walked out. I can say, however, that the two men flirting with the waitress for 15 minutes about 20ft away were getting excellent service. I even went up to the bar 10 minutes in to ask for some service - to no avail. This experience left such a bad taste in my mouth that I'm writing this negative review over a year later.

Great place to get a Canadian Passport photo near Westwood/Santa Monica. Knows all the ins and outs of the whole mess - very happy with the work. Edit: got my passport :) no issues!
