Imprimir em Metal, mais um método! E Bicicletas, em Madeira, impressas em 3D, e Um Concurso de Design.

Idealizada para a Joalharia, também podera servir para outros fins, como mecanismos para Protótipos:




MiniMetalMaker - 3D print with metal clay

The Mini Metal Maker is very exciting to me because it is a unique combination of an artistic material with the field of 3D printing. The Mini Metal Maker prints 3D objects from digital files directly in metal clay, rather than in plastic.  Once these clay objects air-dry, they are fired in a kiln to produce beautiful solid metal objects of high purity and precision.  Using metal clay essentially replaces the entire wax-casting or lost-wax process ordinarily needed to do this. The Mini Metal Maker will add new capability for the DIY inventor or artist by making fabrication in metal easy and direct.  It will be a boon for anyone interested in creating their own gears, miniature mechanisms, or printing detailed jewelry or metal ornaments.  The Mini Metal Maker is built around the concept of using the minimum number of parts,  reducing the cost to produce and also eliminating many chances for error during assembly.  


 









Vamos às Bicicletas, esta primeira, fetia em Ovar, e em Madeira!

Ovar - Das mãos de João nascem bicicletas em madeira com toque de modernidade 

Ana Clara

Na rua Zagalo do Santos, em Ovar, João Baptista dá vida a um conceito que alia tradição e modernidade. Das suas mãos nascem autênticas preciosidades de duas rodas, feitas em madeira, com selo clássico, e onde cada pormenor conta. A empresa, Mud Cycles, dedica-se à construção de bicicletas, «com formas e estética únicas, e executadas numa combinação de peças recuperadas com outras manufacturadas de raiz». Ana Clara; Fotos - João Baptista | sexta-feira, 16 de Janeiro de 2015 A aventura de lançar a Mud Cycles nasceu em 2011, na altura, um projecto virado para o restauro de mobiletes e bicicletas antigas. À medida que a empresa foi evoluindo, explica João Baptista, foi abandonando os restauros para se «dedicar exclusivamente à criação de produtos originais. Sempre achei o processo criativo bastante mais motivador do que o simples restauro de objectos antigos»», diz. A construção de bicicletas de madeira foi uma aposta que surgiu em 2013. E explica por que decidiu encetar este negócio: «sempre adorei trabalhar em madeira e achei um desafio muito interessante aliar isso à minha paixão pelas duas rodas». 








Agora, a partir dum vìdeo sobre uma Bicicleta impressa em 3D, cortesia de Mech BM, eu fui farejar à Net, e descobri isto!




3D Printing, Make this Man’s Lightweight Bike a Reality!
Andrew Wheeler

Matt Clark from San Marino, California has designed a plastic bicycle, called the Innerframe, to prove that bicycle production could be greatly improved and streamlined using specific materials and methods to improve quality and significantly lower costs.  Though it is not 3D printed, the Innerframe features an extremely rigid, lightweight construction that Matt believes would be highly conducive to 3D printing.
Matt has been working on this design since 2008, and he’s starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. While the goal of Matt’s original prototype in 2008 was to produce a seamless, rigid design impossible to accomplish using traditional bike manufacturing methods, the recent development of 3D printing may change that. Matt imagines 3D printing the bike vertically, producing the interior as well as the surface exterior at the same time.








...E para acabar, e só porque achei piada ao raio do Gato com Bigodes, cá vai a notícia deste Concurso, da Zazzle, de Design em Tecido:
