One of the problems that exist in the Prusa i3 3D printers is the open space and air circulation. This open space makes it difficult to warm the table, prevent it from reaching higher temperatures and makes it more difficult to maintain a constant temperature, which can compromise printing. If the temperature falls below a certain value, the part can be released from the table.
One of the projects, which was scheduled some time ago, was the construction of a personalized presence light. For this project I decided to use a wooden base with an Arduino and a figure printed in 3D. First the bases were cut. Due to the low height of the wood it was necessary to cut two pieces, prepare them and to glue it. Two circles … Continue reading Marvin Night Light
One essencial accessory for a Table Saw is a Cross Cut Sled. A Cross Cut Sled Is an accessory that allows to make straight cuts and always with the same size, as it supports the piece of wood on both sides of the blade, unlike the accessories that the table saw brings. In addition, it increases the level of safety in the use of the saw, … Continue reading How to make a Cross Cut Sled with wood leftovers
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
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
