3DintheBOX - An educational and entertainment 3D video centre.

Because I am normally bored to death in my work.....i can sit down here.. drink a tea, watch my life wast away ... and contemplate what might be a cool idea that doesnt exist yet.

I dont think I have better ideas than others, just simply a little more time to try and exacute them... There are small benafits to your boss blatently ignoring you !

So this is my concept.... 3DintheBOX.com

Im been happily reading forums and blogs about 3d printing for over 2 years now.

One thing I noticed was.. that a lot of people post amazing... funny and interesting 3d print related video clips online.. every where... and to be honest its almost impossible to track down the new clips... (note) not all of them are straight on youtube where you can simply click... posted in the last week.

so using the slang word BOX for television.. I created the project name 3DintheBOX.

The name is also designed to reflect the old childrens toy... a jack in the box... a whole lot of fun and crazyness popping out of one box.. kinda surprised no one else had thought of this idea... ?

The second half of my idea... will be to in 2014... travel to as many 3d print shows and fairs as possible and interview the different companies and also do product testing..

3Dinthebox.... LIVE FROM PARIS.... your host this evening.... :wink:

I am going to start kickiing the site together during the 2 weeks I have for Christmas holidays.. will be a nice project and hope you everyone on this growing community will enjoy and hopefully learn from the efforts.

Any feedback on my little crazy idea would be warmly welcomed !

Take care guys !

Ian :smile:

    I'd love to see this crosslinked to YM. Like when you for example explain bridging and use a model that you print in the video, then you can download the thing on YM.

    You could also host the model yourself, but then it's not on YM O.O

    I was thinking just the words 3DintheBOX springing out of a 3d printer or tv... but maybe there is something more sublte that I could use.. ?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
