A veces uno se encuentra en la basura (mando de rc de 27 mhz y un cochecito teledirigido) que se pueden aprovechar. He hecho una cajita porta pilas y he colocado el receptor de RF en el otro lado, previamente quitándole del cochecito y haciendo una prueba de funcionamiento. Con los dos motores del cochecito tengo pensado hacer un barco.

My #OpenBeam #KosselPro also needed an USB connector that's available from outside the printer. Until now I only had the internal mini USB connector and a loose cable attached to it. For setting things up that was OK. But now I designed a mount to add a female USB B connector to the lower part of the printer. The design file is available as usual via my GitHub repository:

New App Turns Your Phone Into a 3D Scanner

It’s only been one month since we published our brief history of 3D scanning but technology has already rumbled on - check out our new blog.

http://www.capture-all.co.uk/turn-your-phone-into-a-3d-scanner/
Researchers at Microsoft claim they are inching towards technology which can turn off-the-shelf phones into a portable 3D scanner.

Hi guys, this is kind of a plug so sorry for that. But as many of you here nudged me for this, I do feel it's worth sharing that YouMagine joined the 3D Hubs Teleport network last week! That's it! </plug> ;)
Some exciting news this week! We're extremely happy to see this huge and active community of makers join forces with us to shorten the road from design to an actual object by integrating our API to their website.

It could be argued that selling prints of a design is commercial use, and many designs on +YouMagine have a non-commercial license. If a designer had the ability to decide whether their non-commercial design can be printed via 3d hubs, that would be a reasonable way of granting license for such use. (At the moment, there seems to be no way of opting out?) And this is another case of everyone profiting from a designer's work except the designer.

Hi
Was thinking of replacing the M8 Threaded rods ( Z axis ) with Lead screws. Anyone know of the STL conversion files so that I can change & fit Lead screws.
I have Mendel90 with Nema 17 Motors

Make sure you get the nuts with the rod. They are not the same as threaded rod. You can use the Prusa calculator (google for it). Then calibrate the axis. The Calc will get you into the ballpark.

So you want to print in Glass eh? Well some have been printing in T-Glase by Taulman for a while now and have produced similar results, and in applications where glass would be dangerous, tglase fits right in, as its lightweight, transmits light, and is very durable! #tglase   #taulman   #3dprinting   #volcano   #e3dhotend   #awesomesauce   #3dprintingporn  
So you might have seen the whole hoopla about printing with glass, as was talked about here, and even then I mention that the large ribbons of glass and the beautiful flow reminded me of printing with the E3d's Volcano and using the larger nozzles. Well seems that I wasn't singular in my ...

Today I received my 2nd #BondtechExtruder for the #OpenBeam #KosselPro. +Martin Bondéus was so kind and designed a mount for the Kossel. Everything fitted right away. To test the now #SmoothieWare powered Kossel I printed the #3DBenchy Jolly. In parallel #FrankensteinFelix was printing the last body parts for #Froggy by +Louise Driggers. I shot a little video showing the two printers in action!

It turns out my Volvo supports the bluetooth headset protocol but not the bluetooth stereo protocol, this is fine as I could use the 3.5mm audio jack but it meant I couldn't pause or skip the music without picking up my phone.

So what I did was 3D print a set of headset controls which directly swap in place of the coin holder and plug in between the phone and audio in on the car.

Very nice. This is an excellent example of real 3d printing. I've just ordered one and am keen to avoid the printing 50 Yoda heads trap.

Starting my new build, finally! After months of (metaphorically) crumpled designs, and several half way done iterations, I have settled on a design and ordered parts! I am using Openbuild's awesome v-slot extrusions for the frame, and hopefully it will do double time as a milling machine as well. My old +Printrbot plus v2 will be reincarnated; we can build him better, faster, stronger... I'll post more pics as my part orders arrive.

Cool, so it's not entirely hopeless then. :) I also got hooked into it because of the small size and cheap price, but I was not at all sure how that would translate into output quality. Seems OK, now that I've printed a whole bunch of stuff, but still can't compare to other printers. Maybe I'll try printing 3D benchy to see how it compares with other people's prints.

M3D also seems slow, and gets even slower as you up the print quality settings. But again, I have no comparison. Are there any FDM printers that are considered "fast" and what kind of print times do they have, e.g. for 3D benchy?

Also the calibration process for M3D is a real royal pain in the you-know-where, especially the backlash calibration, for which I've watched the instruction video a few times without getting much wiser, and hence have not managed to get my round shapes/tubes quite right. Better, but still not quite right.

Has any1 here tried "3D Builder" that comes with Win10 yet?
To do stuff like make plates to print or just re-orientate objects and so on?

I wish #esun would come out with more colors of PETG, I am printing this stuff on clean glass and I get perfect strong prints every time. I don't even want to print with ABS or PLA anymore.

My Printrboard on my PrintrBot Simple Metal no longer responds to anything! I tried connecting with Mac, Windows, and RPi. Nothing. Nothing in device manager, can't reflash the firmware either. 

Is it broken?

No, the micro controller is the "brains" of the printrboard. Its what controls the printer, talks to the computer, etc.
