Help the developing world with 3D printing in the $100k 3D4D Challenge
The 3D4D Challenge, a campaign to help the developing world and educate relevant social organizations, is closing to entries soon. Applicants have until July 31st, 2012 to submit their ideas on how to bring about positive change using 3D printing. The idea behind the challenge is to attract the best options, mentor applicants on possible social implications, and finally hold a pitch session to select the winner. That winner will receive $100,000 in funding that must be used to implement the selected plan. This video explains:

E Rob Ives, graças à colaboração dum seu amigo, Michael42er, traz-nos esta pequena maravilha, para que nada nos falte, quando queremos fazer um 1º protótipo no mais barato dos Materiais, na mais barata das maneiras de fazer algo, Papel, e Cola!
Flex Joint - paper experimentIn the previous blog post Michael42er used a flexible drive shaft to link models together. Inspired by his work I have put together a file of parts for you to try making your own flexible drive shafts. If you are a member you can download the parts file at the link.Most of the project on this site use either an 8mm or a 10mm dirve shaft. I've put together parts for both. The ones in the illustrations below are for 8mm drive shafts.Print out the sheet onto a sheet of thin card. (230 micron/67lb) Score along the dotted lines then carefully cut out the parts.
