Why 3D Printing

Titan Aqua- Water-Cooled 3D Printing from E3D

Posted on Updated on

Extruder for 3D Printers.

According to Sanjay and Rory as they demonstrate Titan Aqua, a two-in-one water-cooled Hot End and Extruder,” ‘water’ interchangeably with ‘coolant’ indeed, the product description. ‘Well which is it!?’ they recommend using a water-based coolant with Titan Aqua and the E3D water-cooling kit. You could use plain water and it would work, but it would also go moldy and lime-scaley and generally gross and gunked-up quite quickly. Water-based commercial coolants contain all the anti-fungal salts and distillation that the system needs. Plus they’re often UV-colour tinted, which looks much cooler than boring old transparent H2O. “.

Also featuring the fully compatible, integrated E3D Water Cooling Kit.

Titan has 4 nozzles with 8 thread filament inserts for true multi-color multi-threading printing to achieve true multi-color and high-resolution printing. upgrade-able up to 4 more powerful stepper driver running in SLI, and can be overclocked to 2.0 Vref for truly more powerful faster print. not to mention, it has RGB lighting.

Titan has the best performance to weight ratio on the market at a competitive price and fits perfectly with E3D’s V6 ecosystem. A 3:1 gear ratio, lightweight but with BIG push, Titan gets its teeth into your filament and won’t let go, improving the accuracy, speed, resolution, and quality of your prints.:)

Teaching Alexa to 3D Print

Posted on Updated on

The day will come when we can program our 3D Printer to make our food, just like ordering food at a restaurant, ordering online, or ordering take-out.

Everybody will have their own choice, vegan, vegetarian or any other kind of food, based on food allergies too.

We will be able to program the menu for a whole month and feed it to the 3D printer, change the refills according to our choice. When we come back home our food will be prepared and dinner served.:)

 

 

Sometimes a gadget like Alexa or Google Home is a solution looking for a problem. Then the problem you’ve been looking for hits you square in the face. I’ve confessed before that I have an oscilloscope problem. I also have a microcontroller development board habit. It appears now I have too many 3D printers. I […]

Warren Buffett Invested in 3D Printing

Posted on Updated on

Mr. Warren Buffett Invested in 3D Printing, “breaking out the elephant gun.” The Oracle may have seen growth opportunities the rest of the market was largely overlooking — in combining the leading market positions of Precision Castparts in titanium alloys and technically complex engineered metals with the up-and-coming potential presented by metal 3D printing.

Precision Castparts would gobble up Atlantic Precision, a start-up in the metal 3D printing space focused on direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The technology fuses metal powdered alloys used in additive manufacturing machines to create complex shapes with fine geometries. What was the reasoning?

Metal alloy leader Allegheny Technologies and  General Electric recently created a joint venture to develop and commercialize a manufacturing process for creating meltless titanium alloy powders for metal 3D printing applications…..:)

3D Print Any Color Makeup From Your Home Computer

Posted on Updated on

3D Printing is emerging in every field these days. A recent Harvard Business School grad has come up with an idea to make the DIY for cosmetics.

“The makeup industry makes a whole lot of money on a whole lot —,” Grace Choi told an eager crowd at Tech Crunch Disrupt. “They do this by charging a huge premium on one thing that technology provides for free, and that one thing is color.”  Choi also noticed that makeup consumers aren’t always loyal to certain brands, but rather focused on convenience.

The Mink costs less than $300, with plans to launch later in the year. Watching something? See a color you like? Grab it off the screen and print it out in the form of makeup — lipstick, eyeshadow, foundation, etc — with the Mink printer.

They are use using FDA approve ink. We don’t need extra new software.:)
