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?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
