You may know that fabric8r.com is currently based in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. A maker from this area is running a kickstarter project for his educational robots. I've enjoyed talking with him several times at the local mini maker faire.

The robots are not designed for heavy workloads - instead, they are weak for safety. The underlying custom electronics though should support stronger motors if needed (this is what I recall from talking to him - things may have changed, or I might not remember correctly).

Anyway, if you're in Cincinnati, take a chance to support a local, and otherwise check out the offerings and see if they suit you.

Here's the link:

Hi All,

I am making progress in my search for useful, inexpensive 3D modeling softwares, especially those that can work with Linux.

I'll post more soon, but I wanted to mention that I got my windows box working, and one of the things I am playing with is Sculptris. Probably most people have heard of that. I had fun and good luck yesterday creating a figure that I may get to print at some point.

Today, looking at something else entirely, I ran across a free, open source, browser-based, and possibly better tool of the same nature - SculptGL.


I have only known about it for a few minutes, but it's looking great. Check it out.

  Another Q3 domain dies
Posted by: Mooselake - 2018-02-14, 03:43 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (10)

The quintessentialuniversalbuildingdevice.com domain, last used for the ticketing system, has expired.  It's looking less likely that Q3 still exists.

We'll know for sure on 4/29/18 if q3dprinter.com, which is used for the online ordering site, disappears too

  OneUp V2 SIDEBRACE Redesign
Posted by: mr_intensity - 2018-02-09, 01:57 AM - Forum: Q3DPrinter (formerly QU-BD) Specific Discussion - No Replies

For those who have been reading my OneUp V2 Build Log, you will remember I did a post discussing a redesigned SIDEBRACE piece for the OneUp V2.

The SIDEBRACE piece, as designed by Q3D, is flawed.  In an attempt to remove "dead weight," the part is designed with a very narrow section that breaks.

My redesign is a little bulky, but makes for a much more durable part.

I am still not 100% positive on the end tab dimensions.  That may need tweaked once people start playing with it "out in the field."

[Image: attachment.php?aid=21]

The attached ZIP file contains four files: 1) A DXF file (CAD drawing file) that can be converted to GCODE for a laser cutter to laser cut the part out of wood or melamime.  Material thickness is believed to be 6 mm.  2) An OpenSCAD file, which imports/extrudes the DXF file to 6 mm for 3D printing of the part.  3) The STL file generated by OpenSCAD.  4) A README file with some information in it.

I am still trying to get my OneUp functional at the time of this writing, so I am not looking to tear it back down to replace the 3D-printed SIDEBRACE pieces (old design - see the rest of my build log for more details) I am currently using.  Maybe after I get up and running, I will print the redesigned piece for comparison to my one good (original) SIDEBRACE piece.

If you end up tweaking the redesign further, post your updates as a reply to this thread.  That way, we will have all the design changes in one place, making the latest-and-greatest version easy to find.

  New Forum - Creality CR-10
Posted by: Administrator - 2018-02-03, 11:36 AM - Forum: News and Announcements - No Replies

We've added a new forum in the 3D Printing area - a special interest group for the Creality CR-10 family of printers.

Check it out!

I've just noticed that our 'most online' count (the number of people using the site at the same time) jumped up 2 last night - there were 9 user browsing the site at the same time!

I know, I'm easily excited Smile.

But still, the site is showing a bit of growth, and that makes me happy. Especially since I haven't yet done some of the things I planned to improve the site and keep things interesting.

Well, I guess the next goal is 10 online at once. Onward and upward! Smile

Hello Everyone,

I purchased a Creality CR-10, and I think it's a great thing. I thought I'd open a special forum just for owners/users of these printers to share information. I'm aware that there is a facebook group that is popular, but I will never be on facebook - so, I decided to offer up this forum as an alternative.

Please join in and share your experiences and expertise.

Hi All,

Spotted this kickstarter. Allegedly a super-fast resin printer. They are claiming 2 to 6 times as fast as the $250,000 Carbon3D printer.

I haven't figured out whether it's believable or useful or not, but the claimed print speeds are other-worldly. Prices aren't necessarily insane, either.


Enjoy. Post what you think about it.

  OneUp V2 Build Log.
Posted by: mr_intensity - 2018-01-20, 11:22 PM - Forum: Q3DPrinter (formerly QU-BD) Specific Discussion - Replies (29)

The Beginning (again)

Since the "new" forum is still kinda thin on content, I figured I would publish a build log here, as I attempt to build a Q3D OneUp V2 kit.  I can document some of the mistakes/pitfalls I face, as sort of a pre-support role for others (i.e. You learn from my screw-ups).

For those not familiar with my odessey, I purchased a OneUp V2 kit a year ago, had a broken and a missing melemite part, tried to get support from the manufacturer, and got nowhere.

Anyway, I was all ready to attempt to build a Snappy 2.0, using the motors and electronics from this kit, when MrAcoustic really convinced me to attempt to build the OneUp.

Of course, it is a lot easier to get a friend with a 3D printer to print two small parts, than it is to get him to print an entire printer.  :-D

So, the adventure begins...
