3D Printing News Alert(Ohio officials seek to promote 3D-printing of prosthetics via law change)

Posted on

Ohio officials seek to promote 3D-printing of prosthetics via law change.

According to Lt. Gov. Jon Husted, during a Statehouse news conference on Thursday, “Aaron is providing an innovative and creative solution to a problem that he and many other people face, and I don’t want outdated laws to stand in his or anyone else’s way.”
According to some comments from the video,”

I have a robotics class in my high school, and the entire class has to build some with the tools they learned from previous years. I am the only one that is making a fully functional 3D printed arm.

Flexible circuits for 3D printing

Posted on Updated on

According to Tomke Glier of the University of Hamburg Scientific Reports,” the University of Hamburg and DESY has developed a 3D printing-capable process that can be used to produce transparent and mechanically flexible electronic circuits. The electronics consist of a network of silver nanowires that can be printed in a suspension and embedded in various flexible and transparent plastics (polymers). This technology can enable many new applications such as printable light-emitting diodes, solar cells or tools with integrated circuits. The researchers demonstrate the potential of their process with, among other things, a flexible capacitor.
This technology can enable new applications such as printable light-emitting diodes, solar cells or tools with the integrated circuit”.

3D Printing News Alert(Higher temperature responsive 4D printing)

Posted on Updated on

According to Chen X, Liu X, Ouyang M and Dr Connor Myant, a lecturer at the Dyson School of Design Engineering and Imperial College London (ICL),”explored 4D printing and its potential to herald new opportunities for industries and consumers.,”a novel electrochemical 3D printer with 2 deposition nozzles was presented which is capable of printing temperature responsive multi-metal (copper and nickel) 4D structures. An electrospun nanofibre nib was used to provide sufficient back pressure to the hydraulic head exerted by the electrolyte, replacing the porous sponge material used in prior works”.

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 Vocabulary

Posted on Updated on

SV3DPrinter and our friends together we are learning about 3D printing since 2014. 3D printing started long before SV3DPrinter. Now it’s time to take a brief test about the 3D printer and their anatomy.
According to the comments and  Thomas Sanladerer I am using some part to write my post so, we can learn more about the 3D printing and vocabulary,”

An “extruder” is the thing that converts feed material to usable output, the entire machine at the highest level, or just the part that does the final output at the lowest level. So, in minimal terms, only the “hot-end” does any “extrusion”, specifically the nozzle.

The thing that pushes the filament should more properly be called a “feeder” or just “the feed”, and includes the entire path between the spool (material source) and the hot-end (conversion to output).
If you start with the plastic beads, then 3D printing can be viewed as a double-extrusion process: Once to make the thick filament, then again to make the thin lines used to form the printed part.

Two different kinds of feeder are needed (generally a screw for beads vs. a hobbed gear for filament), but the hot-ends are remarkably similar.
The extruder is the system/assembly from the feeder or driver to the hot end all encompassed. the feeder is a component of the extruder at the hot end is a component of the extruder.
V-slot bearings as an alternative to linear bearings.
Bridges are unsupported horizontal structures.
The “extruder” is a mechanism which gives a form to a material, pushing it through the hot hole. 3D printers, the “extruder” should include and the stepper motor with gears, and the hot end, and the Bowden’s tube, if any.
But I often see the term “extruder” is applied only to the motor, and do not include the hot end”.:)

 

How to 3D printed Copy Any Object

Posted on Updated on

How to 3D print copy any object. According to Switch & Lever,” Copying physical items is not as easy as copying a piece of paper, you can’t exactly stick it into a copy machine. However, surprisingly technology for how to copy physical objects have come a long way in recent years, and have also become available for those without deep pockets. In this video we’re copying a couple of different objects, using different methods, with different rates of success.”:)

3D Printing with PETG

Posted on Updated on

According to the comments,”PETG for strength and durability,  polyethylene terephthalate (think plastic bottles) and the G means it’s been glycol modified for extra durability. PLA for speed and a little extra quality. It’s good stuff. PEI is an ideal print surface for PETG it adheres well but doesn’t fuse like it does to glass. The advantage of PETG is minimal warping, so you don’t need a heated chamber and virtually no smell with PETG”.:)
