Did anyone take any photos from the last few big 3d Print Fairs ?

Recommended Posts

In the background of the very first picture - with the girl kissing the UM robot - is Luis Rodriguez who is a frequent poster over on ultimaker google groups. Luis also organized the big Kansas City MakerFaire last year and he helped out at both Ultimaker booths NYC. I'm the bald guy in the second picture down. I also helped out UM at MakerFaire NYC. It was non-stop crazy busy both days.

A globe. That's printed on a UM Original. With the dual head upgrade. The dual color printing doesn't work all that great (not on the makerbot either I hear) and is still being worked on. Best results occur if each head doesn't sit idle for more than 3 seconds. So the globe is an okay print because there is a good mix of colors.

The problem is the non-printing nozzle keeps dripping very slowly and puts spots if the wrong color in strange places on your print.

Daid has some interesting Marlin code that cools down the non-printing head if it won't be used for a few layers. But he's probably too busy with the UM2 right now.

edit: Or maybe most of the code is in Cura?

    • 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.
