I have a family member who might benefit from this device. His joystick also controls a tilt back function which he engages by pressing down on the joystick. An enhancement might be away to control too.

This should be fun!
 
3D printer was delivered to our school this morning. About 4 hours later we had our first print out!

What is it about 3D printed action figures that is so enticing? Perhaps it's the custom aspects that can be designed on a one-to-one basis, or perhaps the cra

Over the past year or so, we have covered stories involving the 3D printing of dozens of different robots. Robotics and 3D printing seem to go together like pea

Jointed prints seem to be popular these days.
Get this 3D printer design.

3D Printing Collaboration Across the Seas.
My friend in Japan, Shibata Yoshihiro needed a part for his robot printed out for Robogames 2015. He uploaded the part to Thingiverse before he boarded his plane to San Mateo. This is so I could print it out on my 3D printer before I also left for San Mateo...

3D printing is currently in its infancy, particularly when it comes to creating functional end-use products. Sure, there are some really cool devices and gadget

Experimenting in #3dprinting  means trying things that you're not sure will work. That's what I did with rotating my part on the print bed - and it actually solved a problem i was having...
Getting my 3D Prints to stick to the bed is probably one of my biggest challenges. It's mostly with small parts - and I've mostly had issues when trying to print many copies of the same part all at once. But recently, there w...

If you have problems with parts not sticking to the bed, use hairspray.

I print abs on a 60 degrees celsius bed (my bed won't go hotter than that) and with a little hairspray it won't come off.

I print pla and abs on the same temperature (bed) and both stick fine.

Those Minecraft (tm) tools I printed were really a big hit (with the kids) but they were quite big - The shovel came out at about 96mm (3.75 inches) - so you can imagine the charms were a bit too big for a keychain - about do...

Want a custom #3dprinted   #minecraft  TNT Block?
I made one that prints easily
The Minecraft (tm) theme seemed like a good one to start with when looking for fun things to print. The short story I created a model of a TNT block which my printer could handle (see longer story below to see why) - printed...

Cool idea! I'm sure it's achievable - might even be easier to use the silicone rubber spray stuff on this plastic model to get the one-peice mold for wax, icecubes, etc ;)

Walking Test of a 3D Printed DARwIn-OP (ROBOTIS-OP) Clone Robby!
Test setup. Video of Robby walking and kicking a red soccer ball. This is the 5th walking test and all of the brackets are still in good shape. As you can see in the pictures below.

Learning to #3dprint  connected parts - linked at print time. Here's a post I wrote about 6 experiments leading to a decent design for printing linked parts.
All the experimental models. After doing a bit of experimenting with #3Dprinting snap-together bracelets, I took on a new challenge to #3Dprint pre-linked objects - that is, objects that are linked at the time of printing. Pr...

Everything about heated print beds for 3D printers. An in-depth 10 minute video.
This video goes in to detail on why a heated print bed is nice for 3D printers and why it helps reduce warping. The main reason heated print beds help is because they reduce the difference in temperature between the print head and surrounding air. The bigger the difference, the faster the print ...
