Dr. 3D Printer precautions for advanced manufacturing( Laser Cutting with a 3D Printer )

Posted on Updated on

I am using useful comments for this youtube video:)

Please use some precautions if you are using Laser Cutting with a 3D Printer” It is very very important to use the carbon monoxide detector.part cooling fan” style fan it will help you when you cut. It reduces the risk of something catching fire and blows away the burned wood so the laser can reach the uncut wood.

It might risk sooth accumulating on the lens and eventually blocking enough light that you damage the lens itself with the heat.
You need ventilation and more than just an open window. If you want to use the airbrush compressor into a vacuum pump to pull away from the smoke. I will be worried that you can see the laser beam through the safety-glasses.
If you want to prevent the face from getting charred, put painter’s tape on top.
If you want the laser performance to last you need another mini fan to blow out the smoke so the residue of that smoke won’t be impaired on the laser beam output if you don’t blow air in the output focus lens that lens Will get covered with the smoke residue and destroy it so you need to blow air on the output lens and evacuate the smoke at the same time, you can add a mechanical end stop to the laser to home the Z, as the laser never needs to be hitting the bed or print like a nozzle,

To prevent the scorching just add some masking tape on top of the plywood. Did you think about designing an enclosure for the hypercube? That would be the best for ventilation of all those nasty laser fumes”.
Suggestions for height adjustment–
+1 on adjusting the z height with each pass to keep the focal length the same and +1 on some air assist as the smoke will reduce the laser’s power. With both mods, you’d cut through in fewer passes.

3D Printing aids for ‘Arthritis’ Patients

Posted on Updated on

Arthritis is not only based on age anybody can have ‘Arthritis’ at any age.
In my opinion, research can change the bases of age.
I have seen so many young age people have ‘Arthritis’.
Nobody wants to talk about and they hide because. Arthritis is commonly used for old age diseases. According to the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, Michigan Technological University, Houghton, “By 2040, more than a quarter of the U.S. population will have diagnosed arthritic conditions. Adults with arthritis and other rheumatic conditions earn less than average yet have medical care expenditures that are over 12% of average household income. Adaptive aids can help arthritis patients continue to maintain independence and quality of life; however, their high costs limit accessibility for older people and the poor. One method used for consumer price reduction is distributed manufacturing with 3-D printers. In order to assess if such a method would be financially beneficial, this study evaluates the techno-economic viability of distributed manufacturing of adaptive aids for arthritis patients”.

3-D printing with Cellulose

Posted on Updated on

According to John Hart and Sebastian Pattinson, a former postdoc in mechanical engineering who is now a lecturer at the University of Cambridge in the U.K., “demonstrated a technique using the world’s most abundant natural polymer-cellulose. at MIT,” says early education on 3-D printing is the key to helping the technology expand as an industry. They are very much enjoyed creating and teaching the course and they are proud of what the students did, and what it means about the future potential of additive manufacturing.
Cellulose offers many advantages over current plastics-based feedstocks: It’s inexpensive, renewable, biodegradable, mechanically robust, and chemically versatile. In addition, it’s widely used in pharmaceuticals, packaging, clothing, and a variety of other products, many of which could be customized using 3-D printing”.

3D printed Beehive

Posted on Updated on

 

For so many decades we couldn’t find the identification of colony collapse disorder, a phenomenon marked by widespread loss of honey bee colonies, researchers are continuously working to solve the ecologically complex problem of how to mitigate ongoing losses of honey bees and other pollinating species. We need to track specific impacts on bee health. It could be carefully controlled and kept pesticide free.
3D printed honeycomb is based on food grade material.

 

According to Researchers at the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois and J Group Robotics,” used specially developed 3D-printed plastic honeycombs that mimic the hive environment, in order to monitor queen egg-laying behaviors. They develop a complete Automated Bee Hive to extract honey in the purest form. The entire beehive is nature-friendly as well as using the latest Robotics, 3D Printing & Production friendly mechanism. The Robotic Bee Hive shall extract the purest form of Honey without Killing or Disturbing the Honey Bees. “This compact Robotics Bee Hive shall be installed at every village driving the Women Empowerment and supplying the Purest form of Kinds of honey to the FMCG’s”

Mustang Shelby GT500 with 3D printed brake parts

Posted on Updated on

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500-Dual-Clutch or 10-Speed Automatic.
According to Ford, it is “using 3D printing in the manufacturing world, bridging the gap between abstract and practical.” The company is “fully invested in the latest commercial 3D printing innovations.”
Pricing for the 2018 Ford Shelby Super Snake starts at $113,445, including the donor Mustang.
2019 Shelby GT500 Top Speed is Over 200 MPH. The S197 generation of the Ford Mustang in Shelby GT500 form could top 202 miles per hour (325 km/h) at the Nardo test track in Italy.

The Super Snake, available with an automatic or manual transmission, begins as a Mustang GT with its 5.0-liter V-8, but a supercharger and tuning kick it up to a claimed 670 horsepower. Pay extra for a Whipple or Kenne Bell supercharger, and Shelby claims the engine will generate up to 750 horsepower.
