Podem testar este Software para o Torno CNC, e até como um Plug-in para o Rhino:
VisualTurnVisualTURN is a plug-in of the new CAD platform VisualCAD/CAM 2014 with the following new modules:
- VisualART 2014
- VisualMILL 2014
- VisualTURN 2014
- VisualNEST 2014This new offline programming system is used to program 2-axis CNC turning centers or lathes.Includes powerful turning machining methods to handle complex programming tasks. Just as in VisualMill, the easy interface allows a user to machine a part in very short time. One of the best value packed lathe products available today.Available file imports include: IGES, Rhino, STEP, DXF, DWG, STL, VRML, RAW, Point Cloud.
Podem testar a vossa habilidade num Torno, bem baratinho, com este incrível Micro-Torno para lápis de cera, e isto serve para muita Peça, e até, para Moldes de Fundição, para peças em Alumínio:
Crayon Lathe LittleBitsThis is quite possibly the smallest and safest lathe in the world! And its a lot of fun to use. It will turn crayons or oil pastels.
I have included a template for wood and a .STL model for 3D printing. But there are many materials the body could be made of Lego, plastic, steel...what else can you think of?
Srawbees vai ser usado em tudo o que possam imaginar, mais que não seja, como uma maneira de "esboçar" uma ideia no mundo real.
Tudo, a partir duma simples peça...
STRAWBEES - dream BIG, build BIGGER!CREATABLESStrawbees, a fantastic prototyping toy for makers of all ages. Build huge mechanical objects from standard straws and cardboard!Strawbees is a construction kit based on one simple unit that lets you connect straws to each other. You stick a Strawbee into the ends of a standard quarter inch (6mm) straw to make struts and then connect them with another Strawbee.
Gente superior, há em todo o lado!
Criar novas Profissões, apoiar Comunidades, isto tudo é muitíssimo louvável.
Não há condições, dizem alguns, mas não estes incansáveis Engenhocas:
Maintaining a small-scale 3D printing facility in Uganda
On December 23rd, Emi Watanabe and I went to Kampala, Uganda for about 3 weeks. The goal of this trip was to work with Paola de Cecco and Village Energy to help fix the three 3D printers they have (a Rapidbot and two Printrbots), teach solid modeling skills, and work on the designs of the solar products they are creating. The purpose of these solar products is to enable local entrepreneurs by manufacturing the products locally, training cell phone technicians on how to use and set them up, and sell them to the more remote villages of Uganda that need them. We funded the trip with a crowdfunding campaign through a nonprofit organization, ReAllocate. We were funded mainly by family and friends, something that I find extraordinarily incredible and I appreciate so much.
Isto vai ser usado em incontáveis casos de pouco espaço, e muita vontade de fazer coisas, ainda assim...
Fablabs, Garagens, pequenas Oficinas, sei lá que mais!
Wall-Mounted Folding Workbench
This Instructable is for us amateur woodworkers out there without the luxury of a spacious workshop. I have a small 2-car garage that has no extra space on the sides when the vehicles are inside. Instead of building all my projects on the kitchen table, I decided to put my wall space to use and build this folding workbench!
