CORMUG has been holding free monthlyrnmeetups at the Columbus Idea Foundry since 2009. Everyone is welcome to attend whether you own a printer, want to buy a printer, or just want to see what 3D printing is all about.
Open, hackable personal 3D printing lets you embrace and extend the technology in new and unexpected ways. Fuse plastic on paper to make lamp shades and glider wings, or print finger bones into fabric to make robot hands.rn
Product designers increasingly contribute their work to remix communities, communities in which designs are shared, modified, combined and implemented. Our study focuses on a community called Thingiverse, in which designers share files that can be used to create 3D printed objects. Our analysis suggests that analysis of remix network structure may provide ways of tracing innovation processes and detecting the emergence of new ideas, combination of disparate ideas. As a result, it may be possible to encourage innovation by guiding interested inventors toward potential pairs of structurally separated and conceptually diverse ideas.
Deezmaker manufactures the popular and robust Bukobot 3D Printer and Bukito Portable 3D Printer starting at $699. We pride ourselves in making quality products. We were the first walk-in retail 3D printer store and hackerspace on the west coast providing 3D printers, 3D printing services, classes and 3D printing supplies to the Los Angeles area.
"Design and Modeling for 3D Printing" (Early Release, Sept 2013), Matthew Griffin's maker-focused guide to design for 3D printing, draws from interviews and collaborations with a wide sampling of the desktop 3D printing community as well as artisans from related disciplines. By offering background, practical projects, techniques, pro tips, and a program for self-guided training, this book will help makers "go native" in 3D and get more out of current and future tools and technologies. Picking up on highlights from the Early Release edition, this talk grants a sneak preview into Griffin's upcoming Make: Book.
