Estéreo-litografia por $399! E encontrem as peças, 37 Sites de Fabricação, e uma roda pró gato

Eis uma boa notícia, Impressão 3D em estéreo-litografia, a um preço imbatível! 399 Dólares!
A má notícia é que estão estes Kits esgotados.
Mas como se trata duma Empresa já estabelecida, é esperar por que eles fabriquem mais uns tantos...

DropLit: the low-cost DIY Resin Printer
David Scheltema

Today at Maker Faire Detroit, the team from SeeMeCNC unveiled a new printer: DropLit. Resin printers do not extrude material. Rather, these printers use a resin bath –such as MakerJuice Labs– which is selectively cured by light from a DLP projector.
Traditionally, resin printers are not sold as kits and command prices starting around $2,000 and up. When they said this, they were probably referring to the B9 Creator, which is in that price range. John Oly and his team plan to keep the DropLit kit sub $600, but to do this they are excluding the costly DLP projector necessary for a fully functional resin printer from the kit. This same idea of leaving out the projector has been seen in a couple other DLP resin printer kits, such as the Sedgewick. The DropLit has a distinct advantage that it isn’t crowdfunded and comes from a group that is already selling and supporting impressive printers.

Eis algo que promete, 3Dpartsource, encontrarem as vossas peças, já fabricadas, por meio de pesquisa tradicional, ou através de para lá mandarem um objecto3D!
Eles tentam, com esse Objecto, encontrar algo com uma forma parecida:

3Dpartsource is a product of 3D Industries Ltd., an exciting technology company made up of an international team of world-leading search and manufacturing experts.

The Technology

Using cutting edge and powerful search technology, we have developed a tool that takes you direct from design on your computer, through sourcing of part, to contact with supplier and ordering of part.

You can source for parts and components in different materials and sizes and from different geographies. It provides an easy way to search by keyword, our sample parts, or best of all, your own uploaded 3D model.
The site is compatible with all the main 3D model formats and couldn't be easier to interface with.


Se acharem que todas as dicas que já vos dei, sobre Sites onde podem mandar imprimir em 3D, e/ou vender as vossas Criações, são poucas...
Que tal 37 delas?
É o estilo de ajuda que encontram, aqui, na MakingSociety, uma bela ideia, duma bela Fabber, a jovem Mathilde, belo exemplo da Raça Gaulesa, que quer-vos ajudar a singrar no Fabbing:

37 Marketplaces to Share, Buy and Sell Designs for 3D Printing

Many entrepreneurs are seeing opportunities in 3D printing marketplaces. Offering a service to amateur designers for selling their 3D files seem to be the big deal. For now, market size is very questionable but as a 3D designer you might want to give it a try, even more if your designs really rock.
There are 3 types of marketplaces for 3D print files:
  • 3D printing services: offer designers to open a store on their platforms and take a commission each time a 3D print is ordered. No download available, only the print. Examples: Shapeways, Sculpteo, i.materialise, Kraftwürx
  • Free sharing: These are the platforms specialized in Creative Commons and Public Domain files.
  • Home 3D printing: the boom of new marketplaces is more specifically in this field. They are designed for people with home 3D printers who want to download files (usually for FDM machines). Exemples: 3D Burrito, Layer by Layer
  • Hybrid: some websites are offering download of the file and service 3D printing as well. Cubify, MakerShop
  • Meta search engines: they agregate 3D files coming from multiple websites. Exemples: Yeggi, Fabforall

...E se a Mathilde tiver um Gato, (Bichano sortudo), pode-o pôr a fazer exercício, com esta simpática Roda de Exercício, dica de Jill Yotz, que a gataria aparentemente adora, vejam só este Vídeo, que vos datá uns belos minutos de gargalhada!

How to Build a Cat Exercise Wheel, Part 1

Bengal cats are renowned for their energetic antics. You bought cat climbing trees, cat condos, cat toys; you tried scratching posts, catnip and cat calming aids, but for those who live with such a feline, you may want to consider buying a exercise wheel.

 Yes, I said exercise wheel.

Like the one's for hamsters. Except gigantic.

It turns out that many cats enjoy launching themselves into an all out run from time to time. More surprisingly, they are pretty amenable to using the cat wheel. Cat toys and kitty condos provide great distractions, but there's nothing else that really exhausts- and satisfies!- a cat like pretending to chase a gazelle at full speed across the Savannah.
