Japanese company exiii has concluded the first iteration of their Open Source HACKberry 3D printed bionic hand and have just released all of the design files online for others to use in creating their own bionic hands using a 3D printer and some basic hardware components - including an existing smartphone for the onboard computer.

3D printed wristwatch case. Starting from a CASIO-like wristwatch bought at a flea market in Barcelona I designed and printed a case to be fully compatible, with functional buttons and a transparent look.

Printing has actually always been about ink on paper. Despite the most recent developments, particularly on the planet of printing, both makers and also consumers are already experiencing a paradigm change in the means they do business.

About this community

Let's chat about design for desktop 3D printers -- drawing from techniques and tools used for fabrication and computer graphics from the past to make things in a new way today. I am working on a book with the working title: "Design for 3D Printing" (O'Reilly/MAKE), and will be sharing interviews and notes towards its construction as well as offering those participating in the book a platform to share further thoughts and ask challenging questions about where this field is going next. Over and over 3D printing has promised REVOLUTION, but have we seen it yet?

Found this company in my feed today. Has anyone seen anything like this on a DIY scale? From what they say on the site they are printing the top of the lens on a substrate rather than the whole lens itself.

Think you can design 3D-printed deep space buildings that will sustain human life? Think your design can win out over zillions of entries? You've got until July 15 to submit your registration package to America Makes and NASA for the 3D Printed Habitat Challenge.

This project is fascinating -- I have been talking to a bunch of people participating in it. Reading the NASA design specs to understand the real challenges (for example, the constant wind plus very little atmospheric material means that you can't turn a turbine unless the wind climbs to over 100mph! -- thanks to Micah Ganske for finding that unique note). 

Are any of you folks attempting this one?

Check this out!
Yes. We changed the name of the project to TwinTeeth. Why? Because we did not like MKII and also because that word inspired us in the robot designing. We don't want to bore you now with the details so we will explain the full story when we will publish the project by january/february.

I have been thinking about this idea for a while, how to have both a tough and strong robot bracket. I have found that a tough bracket is to flexible and a strong bracket is to brittle. So this got me thinking. What other man...

the larger gear needs to be on a bolt instead of a single nut. (1:06 ish)

Otherwise a nice assembly vid.

For those of you out there still rocking a MBI Rep2 -- are any of you using glass build platforms? I'm going to swap the sagging acrylic plates from two units and i'm trying to pick which to purchase.

The MakerBot Pro Series unit is rather pricey. Are they worth it?.
http://store.makerbot.com/parts-accessories/replicator-2-2x/glass-build-plate-for-makerbot-replicator-2.html

Also, I had heard that these units from Fused3D might be good - half the price (though just the glass plates themselves). I was about to purchase these when I hit pause and sent this message!
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CONY12E/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3E3L48LMUB0RV

Folks in the RepRap community sometimes get borosilicate plates cut locally or offer a few up for sale -- anyone done this for the Rep2 (and/or Rep1)? I'd love a tip or two!

#3DPrinting  
The superflat, extra-stable Glass Build Plate for MakerBot Replicator 2 takes your 3D printing experience to the next level. Key Features: • Heavier than the acrylic build plate • Glass used in the build plate is 6-8 times stronger than regular glass thanks to a special chemical-strengthening process • Super-flat, with tolerances of +/- 50 microns NOTE: Apply blue painters tape or a similar material to the build plate before printing.

The videos where taken by Shibata Yoshihiro at the Kansas City Maker Faire 2014. As you can see in the videos the robot is fully functional. It has sensors to avoid obstacles in front of it and it can also get up by itself ...
