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.

Oh nice, 3DEksperten is situated in the same city I live in, and is where I got my printer, and most of my filament.

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?

Can you show your 3d printing files in free or cheap other software, because i am noet at school anymore so i must buy yhe 3d modeling en printing software.

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!!

The 3D printers contribution to save the environment, with rebuilding ceramic corals reefs

Posted on Updated on

The 3D printer’s contribution to saving environment rebuilding ceramic corals reefs.
According to Ezri Tarazi, an industrial design professor at the Technion—Israel Institute of Technology, who is collaborating with other researchers from his university, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and Bar-Ilan University on the project, “As a diver, I was seeing the early signs of this five years ago. I was thinking, how can we take a reef that’s totally collapsing—which means there are no branches of corals anymore because they collapse, and fish cannot hide—and how can we reignite life in it? Because I’m an industrial designer, the idea to print corals was the first thing coming to mind.”

U.S. Air Force – The first approved project was printed on the Stratasys F900

Posted on Updated on

According to Travis release,” The first approved project was printed on the Stratasys F900, can print parts with dimensions up to 36 inches x 24 inches x 36 inches made of Ultem 9085, a specialized plastic known for its extra flexibility, density and strength. The 60th Maintenance Squadron at Travis AFB, Calif., is the Air Force’s first-ever field unit to be equipped with a Federal Aviation Administration- and USAF-certified 3D printer capable of producing aircraft parts. Typically, parts that don’t keep the aircraft from performing their mission don’t have as high as a priority for replacement.”
According to MSgt. John Higgs, the squadron’s metals technology section chief, in the release, “We already have a list from the Air Force level to help them print and to backfill some supplies. This will ensure other bases can replace items sooner than expected with our help.”

The world’s first 3D printed brake caliper

The world’s first 3D printed brake caliper.
According to
Volkswagen Group, “The world’s largest 3D printed titanium pressure functional component ever produced on one of the most powerful brake test benches on the market! This is what it looks like when Bugatti prepares its first printed titanium brake caliper for series production.”

Just because things are 3D printed does not mean they are better.

Just saying, other manufacturers may have tested this idea before. I mean a 3d printed caliper can have lighter weight and better thermal control which is obvious enough for researches to be done. But still, good marketing peace of work. Hope this amazing technology can be used on consumer cars.

How hot was the calliper getting and how much was it deflecting? Mechanical properties are reduced at high temperatures, it’s impressive that it survived the test but I would like to know if it yielded or not and how many high load/temperature cycles it is capable of. It should be ok being Ti.

3d printed car parts are probably normal in the future, imagine if your car breaks down and you have it brought to a mechanic. Today that mechanic has to order the parts which will take at least multiple days, with 3d printed parts it is a matter of hours,

Please read our policies before requesting the sample:)
According to the Formlabs, “stereolithography (SLA) print process, and see how Formlabs prints compare to parts made from an extrusion-based fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printer:

Form 1+ is a stereolithography 3D printer. Today, we’re going to look at how it works and put it to the test against parts from an extrusion-based machine.

Let’s start by taking a closer look at the printer. When we open up the light blocking cover, we can see a build platform inside. This metal plate is where the parts are made.

Underneath the build platform is a liquid resin tank. This clear window gives the ultraviolet laser a path to cure the resin.

To start a print, we’ll upload a file, and fill up the resin tank to the indicator line. You can see the laser passing back and forth inside, hardening the liquid plastic.

Now, We’ll take our print out and wash it in rubbing alcohol to get the excess resin off. The flower comes with supports on it, and we’ll snip them off to finish the piece.

Stereolithography is known for producing extreme detail, with layers down to four times finer than a human hair.

The Form 1+ lets us take advantage of a library of materials, so we made some other parts to show what these resins can do.

A Castable Resin gives jewelers and engineers an inexpensive way to produce metal parts. This Flexible Resin is great for simulating different textures and as we can see, this Tough Resin and can really take a hit”.

3D Printing learning, modifying

Posted on Updated on

According to Jonathan Torta, a self-professed and his sister, Stephanie Torta, a designer, and the author, “technical jack-of-all-trades,” remembered the very first MakerBot kit he acquired and assembled. It was the little wooden ‘Cupcake’ that was very basic. It rattled all over the place, but it could print things. Mesmerized, he’s been “building and modifying 3D printers ever since. I thought that was pretty cool.”

3D printed flexible mesh for ankle and knee braces. According to Sebastian Pattinson, who conducted the research as a postdoc at MIT and associate professor of mechanical engineering A. John Hart, “This work is new in that it focuses on the mechanical properties and geometries required to support soft tissues.3-D-printed clothing and devices tend to be very bulky. We were trying to think of how we can make 3-D-printed constructs more flexible and comfortable, like textiles and fabrics. The beauty of this technique lies in its simplicity and versatility. Mesh can be made on a basic desktop 3-D printer, and the mechanics can be tailored to precisely match those of soft tissue.”
