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 Printed Push button

Posted on Updated on

According to Mr JEPLANS, ” he is making 3D printed Pushbuttons for electronics projects. This is the Quick and Easy process”.
We always need some parts for our appliances and house projects.
Several people told us you need to change the whole thing you are not going to get these parts. It is so much money for small under $10 part. Our house windows needed plastic caps. They were charging $800 for each window.
I couldn’t find anywhere for a long time after a while we got 3D printed CAP for windows. That is awesome.:)

3D printed fashion footwear

Posted on Updated on

3D printed fashion footwear will be a good opportunity for the people who have flat feet, outgrow bone and wide feet. It is hard for them to use fashion shoes for the work or party or any sports. In my house, it is common to have flat feet and they can not use fashionable footwear. It is always hard, we have to special order for the same kind all the time.

According to Nicholas Unis, a junior finance and accounting major in the Smeal College of Business, ” he was telling his idea to the “Shark Tank.” I just had a hard plastic shoe and a rough wooden printer. They liked the idea and gave me some very good input.”
Unis also said “I designed the printer to be optimized to print shoes if you print this material with any normal 3D printer, it’s going to jam, “UnisBrands allows me to have the best of both worlds, bringing business, design, and fashion together.”:)

3D Printed Electric Unicycle

Actually riding around at 30 km/h on a 3D printed means of transportation is pretty gnarly, if not foolhardy. So we were actually pleased when we dug deeper and discovered that [E-Mat]’s unicycle build is actually just a very nice cover and battery holder. We say “just”, but a 3D-printed design takes a couple of…

Disabled Wisconsin Duck walks with 3D Printed Feet

——————————————————-

A duck named Phillip lost his feet to frostbite in Wisconsin.  He was found by a teacher Vicki Rabe-Harrison who first considered euthanizing him considering his condition.  Instead, she contacted Jason Jischke, a middle school teacher who had a 3D printer in his class.  Jason asked her not to put Phillip down.  Jason worked with his students to develop feet for Phillip.  After multiple attempts, finally they managed to 3D print feet that fit Phillip.  Phillip struggled initially with the prosthetic feet but figured out fast how to use them.  He got a second life thanks to his 3D printed feet.  Phillip now lives in Wisconsin’s Autumn Farm Sanctuary, near Lake Michigan with other duck friends.

First Running Shoes with 3D Printed Midsoles from New Balance

——————————————————————————–

New Balance announced launch of the first high performance running shoes with 3D printed midsoles.  The shoes will be first launched in Boston in April 2016.  Subsequently they will be launched in select locations worldwide.  New Balance is collaborating with 3D Systems for this product.  The midsoles are 3D printed using selective laser sintering (SLS) process that uses a powder called DuraForm® Flex TPU.

 

New Balance started using 3D printing technology for shoes in 2013.  With this announcement, they are bringing 3D printing technology to commercially available shoes.  According to Robert DeMartini, President and CEO of New Balance, “With 3D printing we are able to pursue performance customization at a whole new level. The New Balance Innovation Team is showcasing the latest in performance running and these advancements signify an important step forward to becoming one of the world’s top athletic brands.”

3D Printing of Flooring

Posted on Updated on

by Charles Goulding Tiling dates back to both the ancient Greeks and Romans who would design their homes with artistic color and clay. Similar to how the Greeks decorated their floors with colorful tiles, now architects and designers can do the same with 3D printed ones. Present day architects and floor designers take pride in their […]
