Re: 3D Printer development - soon to be a class

I'm fine with people using the FilaBot from the Kickstarter , but we first have to work out how to get consistent filament. A major part of that will be to get a spooling system working so the stress on the extruded filament is consistent. It looks like the automatic spooling system that FilaBot was...

Re: New flexible 3D printing filament!

The FilaBot has both 3mm and 1.75mm nozzles. Still waiting on delivery of the control panel, which includes the temperature controller. I use 1.75mm filament (mostly PLA) on my Thing-O-Matic. Maybe we can try to get the FilaBot running at the maker-faire/hack fest event thing someone mentioned was g...

Re: New flexible 3D printing filament!

I first heard about this flexible filament from Eric because the Arizona maker space apparently got some from Germany. A chemistry friend said this is "elastomer-ized" PLA which gives it its flexibility like those soft rubbery iPhone cases. For what it's worthy, it looks like MakerBot is n...

Re: July 20th Synthesizer Workshop

Has anyone heard of whether this is actually going to happen or not? I don't want to come all the way in and find an empty classroom.

I didn't see anything about it in this month's TC Maker Board Meeting Minutes either, although there were some other interesting things in there.

Re: Metal Casting Group - looking for interested folks

I cast using aluminum years ago using styrofoam and sand. I've been thinking of trying some things in pewter more recently, but am not sure where one would get the pewter. I have some of that PVA filament for my 3-D printer that dissolves in water/steam. So I was thinking of trying that to make a ca...
