Re: 3D scanning thread

The eora 3D scanner just got activated on Kickstarter as of this post.

Uses a recent-model Android or iPhone to do most of the heavy lifting while a green laser sweeps the model.

Re: GlowForge Laser Cutter

Ring shanks are done on machines that have a 5th axis setup. (where the ring rotates) The Glowforge is just a well-implemented flat cutter. The specs claim that it'll follow a curvature deviation of 1/2 inch and I take that as reference to gentle surfaces a la smartphone and tablet backs rather than...

GlowForge Laser Cutter

Had been eyeing laser cutters in the past, but between the crude rep-rap looking open-source DIY jobbies and the made-in-China stuff, there was still a ton of unanswered questions & concerns that made it difficult to pull the trigger. Glowforge.JPG In the way that the B9 Creator is a game-change...

B9 Creator: personal manufacturing hero

A youth spent obsessed with the RC hobby could very well be the foundation that's led to my present day curiosities and interests in 3D modeling and rapid prototyping. It was both a desire and requirement to draw from various disciplines back then: ⋅ fundamental understanding of electronic...

B9 Creator: personal manufacturing hero

OK. Round two on the Personal Manufacturing topic. This time with the v1.2 machine. This well-used utility knife has something jamming it keeping it from reliably deploying and retracting. Blowing $12 on another would just reward the manufacturer for incomplete engineering. :x FatMaxProblem.jpg Disa...

Re: Autodesk Ember

They also snapped up Netfabb:

Is this the same Netfabb folks are using for mesh repair?

Re: Shopping for a resin printer

NScaleRestaurant.jpg If I were going off the deep end, I'd leverage the B9 Printer's ability to show off detail by modeling texture on the structure. Brickwork or wood siding even on a building that's 15 cm long is a cakewalk when we're talking about 50 or 30 micron resolution. And instead of just ...

Re: b9 1.8 and Mac 10.7.2 projector malfunction

Sounds similar to the symptoms I had. I eventually traced this back to the computer display's fault and not the B9 software. The HDMI/DisplayPort on the Samsung Monitor was far slower to recover from its handshaking process when the projector flicked on. This caused the OS to throw it's main Desktop...

Non-Adhesive Sticky Tip: Cap Tag

Once the cap is in place protecting the lens from dust and slugs, it's clear that there's an extra visual reminder that will hopefully give you pause before carelessly ramming through the Print Checklist.

Microscope exploration of detail

... presuming that we'd be using Rhino 5 (we already have it) for STL conversions... Rhino 5 is still hands-down the best swiss-army knife of modeling software. I'm simply questioning out loud if there's room for improvement when readying an STL file before it hits the B9's slicer. I am not familia...

MICROSCOPE exploration of detail

I don't intend on making a habit of this, but thought you guys might enjoy a glimpse beyond the dSLR macro lens... Let's aim a MICROSCOPE LENS on a B9 print.

Black vs Cherry

Welcome to the B9 sphere Jesse Usually when I assemble my posts, I try to cross-reference pages to make sure I'm not mis-interpreting things. Like you, I did a double-take when the B9R-2-Black product page mentioned the "Pigmented for 70-120". In fact, I had been so excited at the announce...

B9 Creator HD v1.2

Thanks Danny & Robert

I'm thinking of dressing my printer up in white feathers and telling folks I stole it from a Giant at the tall end of a beanstalk.

B9 HD v1.2 Macro lens exploration of detail

3D printing on the B9 v1.2 on Labor Day? NOT laborious in the slightest. Why print inverted? The alternative would've been shooting supports to the underside of the halo settings and dealing with the post-casting cleanup. Here, prongs get trimmed at the workbench anyway, so effectively zero cleanup....
