Bravo !

Recommended Posts


I just finish assembling my Ultimaker 3D printer. I wanted to send a huge thanks to the everyone in the community. Here is why :

When I was a kid, I spend a lot of time playing with a famous brick game (I don't need to spell the name of it as everyone in the community surely played it toooooo much already). At that time, spending hours assembling new models was such great moments. I'm 35 now and I never had this same feeling again.

But yesterday, since I unbox the Ultimaker printer, I spent a so great time following the assembling instructions. It felt like I was 7 years old again !

During the assembling steps, I often felt like, even if the printer never work, I'm satisfied already.

So thank you again, only for giving us the possibility to feel like kids playing with the toy you all participated to bring alive.

BTY, I also was so surprised by the way everything went right during the assembly. I followed a lot of other assembly instructions in my life and there is always something wrong, something that makes me think : "it should be like this or like that instead...". With those assembly instructions, I always thought : "WTF ! those guys are genius !". Now I understand what Chris Anderson meant about open source projects in "MAKER".

Well, let's stop spreading my happiness and let's start configuring software and start MAKING !

Bravo !

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
