Grandes notícias!

Primeiro, cortesia da Ponoko, um Site que já devia de existir há 10 anos, Inventables, onde podem achar de tudo para...
INVENTORES!

About Us

We believe that it is currently too difficult for designers, artists, and inventors to source materials. To solve this problem, we are building an online store that will streamline the process of innovation and inspire everyone—regardless of profession—to explore what’s possible.
Our Mission: An R&D lab on every desktop

Cimento translúcido? 
Ímanes flexíveis?
Cortadores Laser CNC, etc?
Vão lá, e vão parecer crianças numa loja de Brinquedos!






Lá encontram esta pequena maravilha, um cortador de placa CNC, sem dúvida, o mais acessível que há, por 2,467 Dólares, mas o que é isto, pessoal, o Natal dos Inventores?


Desktop Laser Cutter
40W CO2 Laser Engraver and Cutter with 9.5"x14.5" laserable area

This is a brand new entry level desktop laser engraver and cutter designed for hobbyists. The manufacturer, Full Spectrum Laser, has designed this machine as inexpensively as possible to make laser cutting a possibility to a larger audience that can’t afford an industry standard machine.

With this laser you can engrave from any application that can print to a standard printer including CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator, Autocad, Inkscape and even MS Word and MS Paint. This is made possible because the machine uses Direct Print Drivers with the manufacturers RetinaEngrave USB Controller.

For cutting wood and acrylic the machine has a honeycomb table and exhaust fan. This fourth generation model uses a CO2 laser and a visible red laser pointer.

A notícia original da Ponoko é esta, um bacana dum Sistema de Construcção para Impressoras 3D, mas eu seja cão, se vocês não vão achar 1001 outros fins para esta fantástica ideia, robots, máquinas-ferramenta, sei lá que mais!



A 3D printer built with MakerSlide
A simple, stable, and scalable 3D printer proposal.


Barton Dring (bdring) of Buildlog.Net fame recently designed a 3D printer based on the multifunctional MakerSlide beams. MakerSlide, another of bdring’s projects, was designed to provide a standardized linear bearing for CNC digital fabrication equipment. It launched on KickStarter last year with 5x the requested funding.
This new design takes advantage of the simplicity and scalability of MakerSlide. The result is a 3D printer that is easy to fabricate, easy to assemble, easily scalable for a larger build area, and is extremely stable. Oh, and the wires are hidden inside the hollow space in the MakerSlide. Overall, it looks like a promising project.




Mas porque hoje é dia das boas notícias a granel, não pára aqui;
A Sculpteo, agora, permite-vos fazer a Loja mais especializada que queiram, basta adeririem ao este esquema de vendas, onde adaptam os Objectos da Sculpteo ao gosto do freguês:
