    • 3D Printing Meetup2/11 @ Berkeley Skydeck By Dreambox www.3dreambox.com
    • Why we are doing this?
    • We3D Printing
    • Please Sign-in• bit.ly/U4KZw4• 20 cm^3 coupons will be emailed to you
    • Agenda• 3D Printing: What’s the hype about?• How the technology is being used today?• How you can get/make 3D models?• 3D printing vocabulary• 3D model design strategy• Cool 3D Printing Projects @ Cal
    • 3D Printing: Whats the hype about?
    • 3D Printed Guitar
    • Sculptor Creates Open Source 3D Printed Humanoid
    • Open Source 3D Printed Gun
    • Staples to offer in store 3D Printing
    • 3D Printed Clothing and Shoes
    • 3D Printed Stem Cells
    • 3D Printing Photo Booth
    • Skyfall Makers 3D Print Bonds DB5
    • A Brief History-Developed 30 years ago-Rapid Prototyping Machines-Experimented with in Labs Concept Power Drill MIT Media Lab
    • Why Now? RepRap Technology Improvements Quality Improvements Venture Money+ End Products vs. Prototypes A Really Interesting Story
    • 3D Printing to the Extremes:What impact could it have?
    • Pay for digital models and print everything you need at home
    • Product companies will become design firms
    • Custom Everything
    • Colonizing the Moon and Mars
    • Self-replicating Robots and the end of Humanity
    • The Nuts and Bolts of 3D Printing+ 3D printing is a manufacturing process+ Objective: getting a material in a particular state (usually solid), to a precise point in 3D space
    • So many materials, so many solutions
    • Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Thermoplastics (e.g. PLA, ABS), eutectic metals, edible materials
    • Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) Thermoplastics, metal powders, ceramic powders
    • Electron Beam Melting Titanium Alloys
    • Powder bed and inkjet head printing Plaster, Full-Color Models
    • Laminated Object Manufacturing Paper, metal foil, plastic film
    • Stereolithography Photopolymers
    • 3D Printing EcosystemPrinter Manufacturers (consumer and enterprise)3D Printing Services (consumer facing and backend)3D Design and Printing Services3D Product Companies3D Printing Retail Stores
    • It Takes more than a Printer3D Modeling Software- Hardcore- "Easy" to Use- Simple Customization3D Repositories3D ScanningFilament/ Materials Suppliers
    • How is 3D printing is being used today?
    • Engineering Club Swag: CalSol
    • Chocolate
    • Drones
    • Model Plane Engines
    • Buildings
    • People are building businesses around 3D Printing: 3D Printed Jewelry 3D Printed Phone Accessories 3D Printed Glasses
    • 3D Printing is cool, but you can’t doanything unless you have models…
    • How you get models????
    • CAD• Sketchup (great for beginners) – http://www.sketchup.com/• Autodesk (decent amount of functionality) – http://students.autodesk.com/?nd=download_center• Solidworks (most ME students use this) – http://store.solidworks.com/studentstore/default.php• Blender (great for animations) – http://www.blender.org/download/get-blender/• OpenScad (CAD for programmers/great for making “apps”) – http://www.openscad.org/
    • Or…
    • Get models from www.thingiverse.com*Not everything is necessarily 3D printable
    • Save as .stl• Save your model as a .stl file – Be careful what units you save in – Be careful what resolution you save in • Not too high or too low• Have a student version of Solidworks? – Save as .stl with eDrawings – http://www.edrawingsviewer.com/ed/download.h tm
    • Now for some vocabulary…
    • 3D Printing Vocabulary *pertains mainly to FDM• Layers• Walls• Fill• Supports• Build Platform• Filament• Extruders• Build Envelope
    • Vocabulary: Layers• Layers are 0.4 mm wide and 0.1 to 0.27 mm thick• Resolution means usually means how thin the layers are
    • Vocabulary: WallsMinimum wall thickness is 0.4 mm (based on layer width)
    • Vocabulary: Fill10% vs. 50% vs. 100%
    • Supports
    • Vocabulary: Build Platform
    • Filament
    • Vocabulary: Extruder HeadSquirts out filament onto build platform at 210-230 degrees celsius
    • Vocabulary: Build Envelope/Volume
    • General Strategies for FDM• Not all models are 3D printable• Good resources for guidelines: – http://www.dreams.me.vt.edu/dreamvendor/TipsA ndTricks/index.htmldreambox – http://3dreambox.com/reference.html – Feel free to email us too at team@3dreambox.com and we will be happy to help!
    • Cool 3D Printing Projects @ Cal
    • There are endless possibilities with 3D printing!
    • • Eric Sweet, Sophomore ME, CAD (Solidworks) enthusiast, satisfied Dreambox customer!• Some of my designs and prints:The Wall (from Game of Thrones) Our CampanileCoit tower, GGB, TransAmerica Pyramid, Big Ben, etc. coming soon!
    • Future Dreambox 3D Printing Projects• Come CAD with Dreambox!• Want to hang out here with Dreambox and attend some informal CADing and printing infosessions? – Meet weekly or biweekly HERE at Dreambox HQ – Ask questions, CAD together, print your designs, and learn from and help teach your fellow 3D modeling hobbyists your CAD skills!
    • 3D Modeling Project• I’d like to lead a CAD project this semester• Idea: 3D model (relatively) to scale all the major buildings on Campus– 3D Print designs and build a 3D “map” of UC Berkeley!• Fun semester-long goal, great opportunity to learn, improve upon, and share your 3D modeling skills.• If interested, come talk to me in a few minutes and we’ll talk more about the project!
    • Get creative, experiment with new designs, and challenge the3D printer…… The outcomes may surprise you!
    • 3D Printing @ Cal• Facebook group• All of these slides will be posted there• You should all join! – http://on.fb.me/125Lf1D – Posted on the Facebook event page – How we will coordinate CAD/3D printing projects
    • Thanks for coming! Like us on Facebook:www.facebook.com/3dreambox Join 3D Printing @ Cal! http://on.fb.me/125Lf1D
