ONDERZOEK NAAR 3D HOME PRINTING BEDRIJVENCube 3dThe Cube 3D, shown above, is a printer designed to make building plastic objects as easy as running off a copy of a document.The $1,299 device can print items as large as 5.5 inches cubed. It prints in one colour at a time, squeezing molten plastic from itsnozzle, and can produce 10 different shades.The Cube is designed to be easy to use, with cartridges that clip into place and software that turns 3D computer models into a form theprinter can understand. The software handles models in the STL format, which is output by most CAD packages.Designs for objects that can be printed using the Cube are available through its dedicated online store.Users can tweak ready-made designs for printable objects, such as toys and jewellery, using a selection of apps.Print time is proportional to the size and complexity of the object being built, but the manufacturer says an iPhone case will take abouttwo to three hours to print.Each cartridge will print 13 to 15 phone case-sized objects before it needs replacing.MakerbotThe ace up the MakerBot Replicators sleeve is its ability to print in two different colours at once.The $1,749 printer is able to build objects in more than one colour or from more than one material, using its dual extruder head.The MakerBot Replicator can be controlled without a computer, using its LCD panel and videogame-style control pad. The screenprovides build statistics and monitoring information.3D models, stored in the STL or G-code format, can be loaded into the printer via an SD card, using the printers built-in slot.The machine, which ships fully assembled, can print objects as large as a loaf of bread measuring 12.6 x 18.4 x 15 inches, in either ABSor PLA plastic.Solidoodle 2The Solidoodle 2 ships as a finished product, so theres no need to spend days putting a kit together.The Solidoodle is one of the lowest-cost 3D printers available, with a starting price of $499. Prices range up to $599, with higher-endmodels including a spool to hold the plastic filament - which makes it easier for it to print unassisted - and an outer cover.The machine builds objects up to six inches cubed in size and typically prints layers 0.3mm thick, but can print high-resolution partswith a layer height of 0.1mm. Details of about 0.1mm across can be printed on each layer.UltimakerTrue to its name, the Ultimaker can print bigger objects than many other home 3D printers.The €1,194 ($1,483) printer can build eight-inch cubed objects, and produce items of more than one colour or material.The machine ships as a kit but its maker says it can be rapidly assembled. It includes the software it needs to operate and an LCDcontrol panel.Free software updates can be downloaded, and hardware upgrades can also be printed out.Rap man 3.2One of the more attractive 3D printers on the market, the steel-framed RapMan 3.2 3D Extremesells for €1,030 ($1,280).The printer is a desktop-sized device capable of printing objects as large as 270mm x 205mm x 210mm. It builds items out of onematerial at a time.The machine ships as a kit, with the user having to build and calibrate it. The manufacturer estimates it takes about two to three daysto set up the machine to print.
The device ships with a touchscreen interface and doesnt need to be connected to a PC to work, as it can read model files from a USBdrive.One of the more attractive 3D printers on the market, the steel-framed RapMan 3.2 3D Extremesells for €1,030 ($1,280).The printer is a desktop-sized device capable of printing objects as large as 270mm x 205mm x 210mm.

Plus Personal Portable 3D Printer is a machine small enough to fit on a desktop.Its manufacturer says the device needs minimal assembly and takes 15 minutes from opening the box to full operation.The UP! printer builds objects of a maximum size of 5.5 inches cubed and can print details as fine as 0.2mm.The printer - whose total cost ranges from $1,600 to $2,000 - comes with software for building objects from 3D computer models.Each printer comes with a starter kit toolbox that helps with the assembly and use of the printer.The UP! prints in white, although models can be coated and painted afterwards. The printer can build objects out of ABS and PLAplastics.fabbsterUnlike many hobbyist 3D printers, Fabbster can print in different colours and materials.The machine is fed by sticks of injection-moulded plastic, developed by the manufacturer, melting and squeezing them from its nozzle.To print using different colours or materials users mix together sticks of various colours or compositions.Fabbsters maker says the machine is able to print more precisely than many other hobbyist machines because these sticks are lesslikely to slip than the plastic filament typically used as a raw material.Like other personal 3D printers, it ships with software that can import 3D models into a compatible format. These models can then betransferred to printer via USB or SD card.Fabbster ships as a partially-assembled 3D printer that its maker says can be constructed within a few hours.m2 3d printerCapable of printing off large objects, the M2 3D Printer can be bought as a kit or as a finished machine.The M2 also looks more like a finished product than some of its contemporaries, without dangling wires and a sleek design thatincludes a glass build platform and a stainless steel frame.The printer is available for $1,299 as a kit and $1,499 assembled.iRapid CompactiRapid compact is a €999 ($1,240) 3D printer that is designed to be easy to operate and maintain.The desktop-sized machine, a prototype of which is seen above, prints at a rate of up to 80mm per second and can print layers as thinas 0.25mm. It prints using one material at a time.Its manufacturer says maintenance is easy because of its rack-and-pinion mechanism.Orca 0.43
The Orca 0.43 printer is another affordable home 3D printer.Shipping as a kit, the €799 ($1004) machine can build objects at a rate of more than 250mm per second.It can build objects of 10 x 8.5 x 7.5 inches, and prints in layers of between 0.15mm and 0.5mm. Both ABS and PLA plastics work withthe machine.Bron:http://www.techrepublic.com/photos/3d-printers-10-machines-for-home-manufacturing/6379767?seq=2&tag=content;siu-container#photopagingHUN PRODUCTENCUBE 3D-veel keuze-verschillene categorieen–vaak gebaseerd op basisvormen, sommige meer complexULTIMAKER-geen uitgebreide keuze aan productenMAKERBOTmeer industriele productenSOLIDOODLEHow to Find 3D FilesMany people ask, “Where can I download 3D files?” The answer is that there are many great resources out there. Here is ourguide to some of the best. Keep in mind that not all 3D files are printable on the Solidoodle 2. Some parts might be designed tobe fabricated on a laser cutter, and some might have complex features like large overhangs.ThingiverseThingiverse is a wealth of user-generated content. You can download other users’ creations and upload your own. Keep inmind that Thingiverse has many different types of creations, including many that can’t be made on a 3D printer (e.g. designedto be made on a lasercutter). We like the Elvis Skull and the Stanford Bunny.Google Sketchup 3D WarehouseThe Google Sketchup 3D Warehouse has lots of great 3D files in Sketchup format that you can download and modify. You mayneed to convert some of the files from Sketchup format (.skp) to STL format for them to print. If so, you may needto download the free Google Sketchup converter plugin. Some of our favorites are the Buddha Statue and theBottle Opener.123D ContentAutodesk hosts a (relatively) small repository of 3D files on it’s site for 123D, a free 3D design package. The files are in 123dformat, so you’ll need to download 123D to convert them to .STL format. Our favorite is the Pumpkin.3Dvia3Dvia hosts a small repository of free user-generated 3D files. The company also sells a suite of 3D design software. Check outthe Airbus Airplane.RAP MAN 3.2onduidelijk/ geen producten aangeboden op de siteUP+
