Here's just a little selection of the things I saw there last year

General Discussion / TCT Show - 3D Printing Expo
« on: September 19, 2018, 10:45:39 AM »
From the 25th - 27th September NEC in Birmingham will again be hosting one of the worlds largest 3D printing expos, The TCT Show.

It's a great chance to meet your filament suppliers and printer manufacturers in person, ask them questions and give them feedback, you get to see first hand the new tech coming out, plus, you walk away with an absolute ton of free filament!

You do need to register in advance which only takes a minute, but it's completely free, so what are you waiting for?

I'll be heading up there on the 25th for the day. If anyone else thinks they may be going, let me know!

All good so far. A few minor imperfections on the part but nothing that will come through after the post processing is done.
Yeah I leave the hot-bed on the whole way through, especially on these particularly thin tall prints. I've got my printers pretty well setup so when the bed cools down to room temperature, the parts often just pop off at their own accord.

As it's going to be a long time before it's complete, I thought I'd keep a running thread of my progress as I build a full size, wearable, motorised Iron Man MK 45 suit.

Many of you will have seen my MK3 helmet which I've already printed
I've uploaded a full build log of it here which is well worth a look for a better insight into the printing and construction of the helmet.

I am now in the process of printing the left half of the chest piece and will keep you posted with future updates:

Sounds like you've got some interesting projects there!  ~~

For me, the films and TV shows aren't usually the inspiration for what I'm building, but almost act as a catalyst. If for example, I need/want to build a robot for whatever reason, I'll pop on Real Steel on one of my screens whilst I'm getting started and it gets me pumped up for the project :p

Every time I watch Ironman 1 I always end up designing and/or building some gadget or print later that day.
What have you watched that has made you want to stay up all night and have your significant other walk into your workshop the following morning to find you with in last nights clothes, sat hunched over your desk as you look down and marvel at your nights creation?

hmmm I havent really counted the cost but its not mega expensixe I can provide links to all the gear I bought if you like  :beer2:

This may have to be a project for November. My time back has disappeared before it even took shape!
Next time... next time!

If your only stipulation is 10x10x10 build area then you could just use a HK mini fabrikator v2.

their tiny, enclosed,  and if you just run PLA you could get away with no heatbed so the current pull should be small enough to run from a car voltage inverter I reckon. :hmm:

Ah that looks ideal!
Whats the general consensus on it? I'll have a look into it on Wednesday when I have decent internet again but do you know if generally people find it performs ok?

Hmm the Freaks3D seems like the most suitable for my needs out of the options (presuming the Z rail can either be quickly and easily removed, or folded down), but it's a little surprising there isn't yet any clean options for a truly portable setup.

For me, I definitely don't need a huge build area. 10cm cubed would probably do for most things I'd want to print in the field (that I'd actually have time for). Keeping the bed small also means my print times will be shorter which is good. Also, aesthetics are really not important here, though durability kind of is. As it's on the move, and I'm often working in extreme environments, I don't think the thermal requirements of ABS are really an option so I'm probably looking at PLA or PLA+ as my material if I do go down the FDM rout.

I am tempted to build my own to be honest. I could probably do without a heated bed but have never actually tried printing without one so not entirely sure what I can expect both in hot and cold conditions when printing on a passive bed.

Do you always go to the same place or always different places I ask because of your portable printer thread  ~~

All over. I'm in Egypt at the moment, but also for this year I've got lined up: Greenland, Colorado, California, Elsemere Island, Yukon, Alaska, Italy, and Antarctica. Some of those locations though I'll be camping and will only have intermittent generator access so any printer will basically be out of the question for those.

I spend a good time of the year out of the country on work. Often whilst working, I think how useful it would be to be able to design and print something on location to help with unexpected situations.

So I'm now looking into options for a portable 3D printer. Either off the shelf or self built.

Here's the priorities:
  • Compact and hardy enough to be easily transported on planes
  • Fairly quick
  • Require fairly little maintenance

Now whist I'd much rather go with FDM for this (as I don't like the idea of flying with loads of liquids), my first impression of these requirements is SLA would be the better option to go for.

So to kick things off, can anyone think of any off the shelf options that could be worth considering?

You'll get a whole month of me you lucky devils!

a month aye?

hmmm been thinking about taking a holiday.....maybe somewhere with zero internet connection......  :hmm: maybe madagascar

My better half spent 9 months working in Madagascar. There are worse places to be but make sure you get a rabies shot ;)

General Discussion / GPL Violations - What we can do
« on: April 09, 2018, 02:28:13 PM »
As many of you know, I run a 3D printing YouTube channel (though I have been away for a few months this year so it's been a while since new videos have surfaced).
Anyway, last week I received an email from one of my subscribers.

He emailed myself along with a few others who run 3D printing channels with the hope in introducing us to an issue which threatens the open source nature of our shared interest.

He included a link to which is worth watching, but in short, several printer manufactures are breaking GPL's and locking their firmware illegally, preventing open source modifications.

I'd love to hear your opinions on the issue, and what you think we, as a community can do about it.
