Dumpster-Diving DIYer Uses Salvaged Wi-Fi Router to Control His 3D Printer

When Floridian Matt Defenthaler bought a home 3D printer, he went with a kit rather than purchasing a fully assembled one. He ordered his Makerfarm i3v printer (I’m pretty sure he got a Prusa 8” i3v, which sells for around $550), he knew he’d get everything he needed to assemble his new 3D printer with the exception of the glass and the 12v 30 amp power supply.

Fargo 3D Printing Provides Incredibly Easy Solution to Clogged MakerBot Smart Extruders

The MakerBot Smart Extruders; you either love them or you hate them. When MakerBot Released their 5th Generation Replicators a little over a year ago, many people were in awe of what the company was calling their “Smart Extruders.”

Is your MakerBot smart extruder clicking or clogged?
The clog may reside in the nozzle or the thermal barrier tube.

Bondtech Extruder V2 is Unveiled with a „Performance that Outclasses All Other Extruders“

When it comes to FFF-based 3D printers, no single mechanical piece of these machines is as important to print quality and consistency as that of the printer’s extruder. Extruders are the devices which pull the filament in, melt it to a precise temperature, and then extrude it onto the 3D printer’s bed, thus building an object up, layer by layer.

Add a closed loop control to your 3D printer and never worry about missed steps again

It’s a problem facing many 3D printers, especially those that have been home-made or extensively modified: missed steps. It’s probably one of the biggest problems with 3D printers (and CNC machines for that matter) in general; when the toolhead is moving around, the stepper motor could miss a step every now and then.

X & Y axis driven by DC motors with encoders

First test with closed-loop drives on both axis. Notice what happens when I move the carriages out of place by hand.

Amateur Designer Uses K’NEX Kit to Create a Cheap 3D Printing Filament Spool Holder

Back in 1992, Joel Glickman invented a construction toy system he called K’NEX, and it’s roughly like, and in direct market competition, with Lego, Tinkertoys, and Meccano.

A lot like the Tinkertoy, the tiny building system is made up of interlocking plastic rods, connectors, gears, wheels and various other components which are pieced together to form models, machines, and architectural structures.

3D Print Your Own Filament Counter and Stay On Top of Future Print Jobs

If you have any experience with 3D printing, you know that a spool of filament can yield a good deal. Thanks to our friends at MakerBot, we can give you some actual numbers or, more accurately, a bit of perspective, on the subject as we know that it’s pretty clear that 1 kg of filament is going to yield about 1 kg of 3D-printed objects. If you’re not using exactly 1 kg of filament to print an object, then you’re going to want to keep track of how much filament you used on a given job.

A Wrench In the GeckoTek Gears – ABS Build Plate Issues Delay Shipping of Kickstarter Fave

GeckoTek say they’re working hard to address some issues with their line of 3D printer build plates, and though they haven’t found an easy solution to the problem, they’re committed to taking “some steps back” to redefine their test procedure and formula to meet the ABS performance standards they promised to their Kickstarter backers.

Printr Introduces the “Missing” Element — A Dongle Which Connects Your 3D Printer Remotely to Your PC

The true power of 3D printing is not realized by all the little trinkets you can download and then fabricate in your home, office or garage. Yes, the hundreds of thousands of designs you can download on repositories like Thingiverse or MyMiniFactory are amazing, but the true utility of a 3D printer is the customization it allows one to achieve. Break a buckle for that handmade purse?

The KappaKit contains your desktop 3D printer fumes while protecting printer from damage

Although 3D printers have brought users an immeasurable amount of joy thanks to the ability to print literally anything at any given moment, they are still not without their flaws.

Among other traits that leave much to be desired – especially desktop Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3d printers – are the harmful fumes and ultrafine particles that are released when plastic is heated up to be extruded. Additionally, even in a workshop environment where ‘industrial smells’ are normal, the smell of burning plastics are usually considered unpleasant compared to say, wood on a bandsaw.
