  • 1. Imagine in a new dimension 3D Printing 26 February 2014 Rómulo Antão romuloantao@ua.pt
  • 2. Presentation Outline l  Motivation of this project l  3D printer models l  How to do 3D objects l  Online repositories l  Material sources Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 2
  • 3. Motivation Engineering challenge l  l  Assembly a fully working machine, part by part Creativity enhancement l  l  l  Get a tool that greatly expands the borders of possibilities for my hobbies Create personalized gifts for your friends Fix the “unfixable” l  l  Bring back to life to appliances that no longer operate as expected due to broken parts Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 3
  • 4. Which printer to choose? Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 4
  • 5. When you go DiY way... Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 5
  • 6. The parts of a 3D printer Choose a controller board: R2C2 – Single board design RAMPS – RepRap Arduino Mega Polulu Shield Sanguinololu – single board design based on arduino The aluminium frame provides a stable printer frame Linear bearings for the parts moving in the XYZ axis Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 6
  • 7. The parts of a 3D printer... Stepper motors used to provide motion along the printing axis and to drive the filament to the printing head The printing head Buddaschnozzle v2.0 Try to get hold of another printer J Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 7
  • 8. Material sources •  You can find the part list and instructions to assemble a Prusa I3 model here •  http://reprap.org/wiki/Prusa_i3_Build_Manual •  The best deals on bearings, power supply, heat-bed, nozzle… are found on ebay •  You can find complete printer kits already packed in many online shops •  www.3dprinters-shop.com Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 8
  • 9. How to do your 3D objects? •  There exist several applications that you can use to design 3D models: •  •  •  •  •  •  Solidworks Autocad Sketchup Autodesk 123D Blender FreeCAD In Hack-a-Day blog you can find thorough introduction tutorials for each of the cited applications Just google: “Hackaday 3D Printering: Making a Thing” Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 9
  • 10. An example Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 10
  • 11. 3D design for “normal” people •  Some other tools can be used to quickly turn an idea into a 3D model •  They already provide several 3D model templates as numbers letters and common geometric figures •  Web browser based •  Very intuitive www.tinkercad.com www.3dtin.com Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 11
  • 12. Online repositories •  You can find lots of interesting 3D designs available in online communities •  www.thingiverse.com - is the largest community •  Due to problems related with the uploaded designs ownership new services for sharing 3D designs and projects are emerging •  www.thingtracker.net/ •  www.youmagine.com/ Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 12
  • 13. Thank You! Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 13
