Building On The Solidoodle 4, A Sub-$1,000 3D Printer With Solid Hardware But Sad Software

3D printer prices are falling steadily, something that shouldn’t surprise anyone familiar with the vagaries of the electronics market. What cost a few thousand last year is now hovering at less than a grand while knock-offs are going for around $ 500 or less, depending on the model. It’s a great time to be a 3D printing hobbyist. But are these new printers worth picking up? I’ve used a few… Read More

‘Eye Of The Tiger’ Performed By Dot Matrix Printer

dot-matrix-eye-of-the-tiger.jpg PROTIP: Examine your volume, often it sounds like a robotic shouting as it gets stabbed. This is a video of a dot matrix printer playing ‘Eye of The Tiger’. In my opinion, ‘Eye of the Tiger’ is among the best pump-up tunes of perpetuity. Likewise, ‘You’re the Finest’ from the Karate Kid soundtrack. Those tunes make me feel like I’m unyielding. Which is hopefully why I’m not listening to either among them when somebody’s pointing a gun in my face. PULL THE TRIGGER, SISSY, I ‘M F *** ING SUPERMAN. Who, for the record, I am not f *** ing, although I did kiss Spider Guy when (mask on). Keep opting for the video.

The World’s First Carbon Fiber 3D Printer Is Now Available To Order

carbonfiber

Just in case you have $ 4,999 lying around and have a hankering to print in carbon fiber, the Mark One 3D printer is now available for pre-order. When first announced last month, the Mark One was going to be available to order in March, but today is your lucky day.

Named aptly for its creator, Gregory Mark, who also owns Aeromotions, this desktop printer debuted at SolidWorks World 2014 in San Diego. After seeing the expense and time currently associated with carbon fiber manufacturing, Mark started down a path that eventually ended up at the Mark One.

“We took the idea of 3D printing, that process of laying things down strand by strand, and we used it as a manufacturing process to make composite parts,” he told Popular Mechanics. “We say it’s like regular 3D printers do the form — we do form and function.”

The printer can not only lay down carbon fiber, but also fiberglass, nylon and PLA. Of course, only one at a time. The printer employees some pretty nifty advancements, too, including a self-leveling printing bed that clicks into position before each print.

For a few dollars more, the company also offers a Mark One Developer Kit Pre-order that puts your order at the front of the line and includes a few extras, including more Kevlar and two extra beds.

Hershey’s Is Going To Make A 3-D Printer For Chocolate

hersheys-chocolate-printer.jpg In information that makes certain to thrill the execs of pharmaceutical business that produce diabetes medicines, Hershey has just revealed a partnership with 3D systems to produce a 3-D printer that prints in chocolate (formerly: this one that already exists). Are you thinking exactly what I’m thinking? “Chocolate penises?” Of every sizes and shape!

“Whether it’s creating a whole brand-new kind of candy or developing a new way to produce it, we welcome new innovations such as 3-D printing as a means to keep moving our classic confectionery deals with into the future,” stated William Papa, head of research and development at Hershey, in a statement. There is no word as to when the wonderful gadget could be available or just how much it could cost.

How long till everyone who has one is simply printing a continuous dot straight into their mouths? My estimate is by the end of the first day. Personal fun reality I probably should not be telling you: one time an enthusiast and I were messing around with hot fudge in the bedroom and she put it on my banana but it was waaaaaay too f *** ing hot and I cleaned it off on the sheets yelling and it looked like I shit the bed until I did laundry the following week (in fact 2 weeks). Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who’s so wicked he never ever makes chocolates for a party without an unhealthy dose of laxatives. Nothing like enjoying your pals poop their trousers since there’s just one bathroom.
