According to Ryan Schultz, the Vice President of Vertical Marketing at Stratasys, “We can do full color, clear, flexible, rigid, all in one print, so the opportunities are nearly limitless.[Our] 3D printing technology is the only technology that can print at such a fine level, multiple colors within clear, to get that iridescent shimmering effect you see in a butterfly’s wing.”

I wonder how much stronger it would be if you were to iron the plastic into the shirt through a sheet of parchment paper. That might help prevent the very slight peeling of the edges on the lion’s mane after the wash.

I wonder if using the ‘Avoid crossing outline for travel moves’ in the advanced tab of Simplify 3d would help to cut down on the stringing?

Did you do any mods on your CR-10 to print flexible material? Also can you share your Simplify3D settings you ended up using?

Hey Simon – thanks for responding to those of us with the torches and pitchforks regarding the flex filament. You blew my mind using a STOCK CR-10 to do this…please share the machine settings to get Ninjaflex successfully through a CR-10 extruder.

Slic3r has an option “Avoid crossing perimeters”, which stops the print-head from travelling over your clean lines and leaving goop everywhere. You may be able to find similar options in your slicer of choice.

very interesting and a great idea ! (reminds me of the old 3D printer days when new things would be found every week!). you might get different results with different tshirts, as you get 100% cotton shirts then you get polyester shirts which have a % of plastic in them. this would get better results i dare say. but very interested might have a go my self at some point

Do you have any issues with priming the nozzle? I have not played with different slicers and startup gcode, but in cura for lulzbot it always prints the skirt around the base to prime the nozzle. Looked like you were manually priming the nozzle and turning off the skirt?

Great video! I don’t know how to do it in S3D but Cura slicer has a ‘Combing mode’ that minimices retractions making the nozzle travel over the printed parts. I use it when printing flexible filaments making almost zero ‘stringing’. May you find it useful for this kind of experiments.
Great work!!

Jabil’s plan for $42M medical 3D printing with 24 percent core EPS growth

Posted on Updated on

According to St. Petersburg-based Jabil (NYSE: JBL),” is set to make a $42 million investment in Albuquerque, New Mexico for technology and equipment as it makes the Duke City its “center of excellence” for 3D printing, officials announced on Aug. 15. The company said it plans to hire 120 employees in the next five years.”
According to New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said in a statement “We have all the talent in the world right here in New Mexico, and when we build the infrastructure for a 21st-century economy, we will see more young adults stay here and more homegrown talent return here.”
According to CEO Mark Mondello, “I’m extremely pleased with our third-quarter performance, highlighted by solid operational excellence and strong financial results. The team delivered 20 basis points of core margin expansion on double-digit revenue growth, culminating in an impressive 24 percent core EPS growth, year-over-year. Our strong year-to-date results validate that our diversification strategy has firmly taken hold.”

Delivering insoles in 1/2 the time, at a fraction of the cost.

According to Hackaday, “Embroidery machine, with 3D, printed parts. Arduino components combined with 3D printed parts. OpenBuilds® V-Slot Belt & Pinion System.Such as an Arduino and stepper drivers for an economical DIY solution. It’s not shown in the photo here, but we particularly like the 3D printed sockets that are screwed into the tabletop. These hold the sewing machine’s “feet”, and allow it to be treated like a modular component that can easily be removed and used normally when needed.”

3D Printing News Alert(For 3D printing a wonder material for the future, graphene)

Posted on Updated on

Graphene is strong, light, thin and flexible. It is the thinnest substance capable of conducting electricity, is an efficient thermal conductor and is optically transparent. Graphene is also more resistant to tearing than steel and is almost impermeable.

For 3D printing a wonder material for the future, graphene.

According to GrapheneCa Head of Business Development David Robles,” Proactive Investors to discuss the technology company that is integrating graphene into the real world using their own environmentally friendly production process.

Robles telling Proactive about the company’s revenue streams and when they are expecting to be profitable.”

According to Hodge,” Adding graphene to plastic composites can improve the tensile strength and stiffness of packaging. Graphene won’t make the material indestructible but it may be possible to reduce packaging size while maintaining the same properties. This has obvious advantages for transporting fragile goods and may also contribute to recycling. Today, recycling plastics degrades the quality of the plastic – it can be recycled an average of three times, but adding graphene to recycled plastics can improve its strength so that it can be recycled many times more. Because they are printed, [the capacitive touch sensors] can be any size or shape and printed in volume.”

According to Chris Jones, technical manager at Novalia, a partner in the EU’s Graphene Flagship, “Our mission statement is to make technology disappear into everyday items.
The ink is supplied by Researchers at the University of Cambridge, University of Manchester and produced by micro fluidization.”

According to Francesca Rosella, co-founder of CuteCircuit, “A dress was designed to illustrate the material’s strength, transparency, and conductivity. The shape and decoration of the dress represent the design of a graphene crystal. We examined graphene under a microscope to see the hexagonal structure and enlarged it to help people understand graphene’s molecular structure.”

According to the TechRadar, “Mobile warming the graphene jacket can also conduct electricity, but creator Vollebak has decided to dampen down this ability to protect wearers. Prototypes of the jacket were so conductive that the wearer could hold a battery in one hand and a light bulb in the other, and have the bulb light up, but Vollebak decided that, although interesting, it was best to play it safe and make the material a little more resistant.”

According to Researchers at Osaka Universities co-author Kazuhiko Matsumoto,” Our biosensor enables highly sensitive and quantitative detection of bacteria that cause stomach ulcers and stomach cancer by limiting its reaction in a well-defined microvolume. They have invented a new biosensor using graphene, which is a material that consists of a one-atom-thick layer of carbon, to detect bacteria like those that attack the stomach lining and that have been linked to stomach cancer. When the bacteria interact with the biosensor, chemical reactions are triggered which are detected by graphene. To enable detection of the chemical reaction products, the researchers used microfluidics to contain the bacteria in tiny droplets that are close to the surface of the sensor.”

UCLA professor uses 3D printing for fashion designs

Posted on Updated on

According to ucla.edu/news,” UCLA faculty member Julia Koerner, whose 3D printed designs were featured in the movie Black Panther, which was recently recognized with a 2019 Academy Award for Best Costume Design.

Koerner, a Los Angeles-based Austrian architect and the founder of JK Design GmbH. She has won many awards for her work, which is at the convergence of architecture, product, and fashion design – specializing in additive manufacturing and robotic technology. In 2015, Julia launched an entirely 3D-Printed ready-to-wear collection entitled ‘Sporophyte’. Her collaborations involved 3D-Printed fashion pieces developed with Haute Couture Houses for Paris Fashion week and 3D printed costumes for Hollywood entertainment productions such as Marvel’s Black Panther in collaboration with Ruth Carter. Most recently she collaborated with Swarovski on a showpiece which displays Swarovski’s continued strive for innovation and the early developments of 3D-printing technology with glass”.
