BQ Ciclop Home Made

One technology that came up with 3D printers was 3D scanning. There are several equipment that allow you to do this, some more accessible, some less. Some time ago, BQ launched a model called Ciclops. It’s a relatively affordable 3D scanner just like others on the market. However it has a unique particularity. BQ, in addition to launching the scanner for sale as a kit, … Continue reading BQ Ciclop Home Made

mUVe 3D DLP – Configuration and working

One of the places where I collaborate is at FabLab Castelo Branco. Not as an employee but helping when needed. The latest help was preparing a mUVe 3D DLP 1.1 printer. A DLP printer is a 3D printer that, instead of melting filaments and layering them, uses a proprietary resin that is cured over a given wavelength. This wavelength can be generated through several means, … Continue reading mUVe 3D DLP – Configuration and working

RC Car Arduino Controlled

In this year Eletrónica e Informática (http://ei.aicb.pt) i presented a project prototype of an autonomous car controlled by an Arduino Nano.
The project was simple: a r/c car was controlled by an Arduino nano and uses an ultrasound sensor to detect obstacles that was in his front. If it was detected an obstacle, it stops, moves back and changed direction.
