$30 seems kind of expensive for this, to be perfectly honest...

Question: Do you think it will ever be possible for 3D printers to compact dust minerals as a printing material? Perhaps with the aid of chemical agents?

The reason I ask is because I'm designing a Mars Rover (just for fun) and one great feature would be the ability to construct using pre-existing materials of the surface.

There was a discussion on the Open Manufacturing Google Group about building things out of the materials available on the moon. Some of the principles may apply to Mars. https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!searchin/openmanufacturing/lunar$20regolith

Highly regarded +Rachel Park (former chief editor of +3D Printing Industry) just launched the brand-new #DISRUPTIVE  e-magazine at #3DPrintShow   #Berlin

Pretty amazing to see stunning 90 pages of exclusive #3DP  content, you've not heard about before. Our community celebrity +Richard Horne also contributed a cool article for beginners.

The first edition is free for everybody to download (http://disruptivemagazine.com/magazine/) :-)

Dear 3D Printing community,

I'd love to invite you all to the open beta test for our latest online 3D printing service. It's called MeltWerk. We're starting with white PA12 SLS printing, shipping to whole Europe. You don't have to order anything, this beta is all about getting valuable feedback.

We want MeltWerk to be build around the user's needs, and since you guys are the real pros of 3D printing, your thoughts on how you like the service and what would keep you from ordering something would be extremely valuable to us. So have a look and tell us: What do you like? What doesn't work for you? Just shoot an email to help@meltwerk.com to tell us what you think.

I've read the rules and I hope this doesn't qualify as spam. If so, feel free to delete this post.

Best regards from Berlin (ok, right next to Berlin),
Robert

I hope this will answer your question. If not, get back to me and I'll help you.

I'm looking for a 3D model of a paratrooper to print. I have a buddy in the Army moving and would like to print one as a going away gift. Can anyone help me with this?

+Cedric Cooper I checked out the website but i didn't find anything that would work. I'm looking for something like this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:299122. But I can't get that file to load in the 3D editor or the printer software.

Anyone interested in joining a (to be set up) Slack on 3dPrinting parallel to this community?

I am willing to moderate it 

3D Printing Hangout but like IRC - only without IRC but with Slack! ;)

Ran in to this while reading a forum. Here is a method to cast your prints in to metal by creating a silicon mold and mixing metal powder with resin to cast.

What is a cheap way to fuse abs filament? I looked at the fuse welder and read the reviews.... nope.
I also saw and tried the flat iron method, but like it said, works great for pla.
Others require to make stuff out of aluminium, I don't have the money (actually wife won't let me spend the money on an iffy).
If you know of a way and it works great for you, please share and tell me how you did it.
Thanks.

If you're just looking to bond 2 or more separate pieces, acetone or MEK work very well. An even better option is Weld-On 773 for ABS. It's basically Acetone, MEK, and ABS resin. It works much like hot pipe glue for pvc - once dried, the parts are fused together.

Any seams can be sanded and cleaned up easily.

Hi everyone!

Is it possible to create a custom profile on CURA software for my Replicator Z18? Instead of using the Makerbot Desktop? Anyone did this already?

Best regards!

A bunch of photos from #MRRF  this year. Had an amazing time. Check out an upcoming printer from SeeMeCNC in there and some shots of the overall event. Had a blast. Can't wait for next year.

We are looking at Tinkerine as an entry point into 3D for our classrooms. Does anyone have any experience with this printer and related courseware? $1800 for printer and curriculum.

Hi Keith! I know you're probably looking for general feedback from the community, but if you have any questions at all, I can definitely answer them. We are also a Canadian company and all our printers are hand made in Vancouver, BC :) Feel free to contact me at vivian@tinkerine.com and I can put you in touch with other schools etc. Thanks!
