Researchers at the University of Washington are 3D printing no-electricity electronics parts to create devices that can transmit information over Wifi - no electricity or batteries required! If this sounds complicated, it is a little. They had to figure out how to transmit data in binary (zeros and ones) from a physical input (such as a … Continue reading 3D Printing No-Electricity Electronics
3D printer users need to know how to store filament properly, especially in hot and humid climates like Dar es Salaam and Mombasa. If you don't store your filament properly, you can easily lose the entire roll in just a few rainy days. Humidity causes poor prints We recently visited a customer who had been … Continue reading Important: Store your filament properly!
Continuing on from our last post on Advanced Materials for 3D Printing in which we discussed the uses of Nylon, Polycarbonate and PVA, we've got more to share here on advanced 3D printer materials..... Flexible or TPU 95A Flexible materials & filament are used in a wide range of applications. It's a rubber-like filament that … Continue reading Advanced Materials for 3D Printing…Continued
Great advances have been made in the last few years with 3D printer materials (the filament, or ‘ink’ for 3D printers). Because of advanced 3D printer materials and technology, more materials and colours are now printable. We always recommend new users to start with PLA (poly acetic acid), as it’s easy to work with, safe … Continue reading Advanced Materials for 3D Printing
