  Another Kickstarter project
Posted by: MisterAcoustic - 2017-11-17, 11:00 PM - Forum: General 3D Printing - Replies (1)

This kickstarter campaign is a bit older, but I just saw it, and wanted to mention it here.

I didn't see much of interest initially, but then I figured out that they are using a 'top down' printing approach (which is what the Peachy Printer would have used had it survived).

They fill the vat mainly with glycerine, and only put the resin on top of the glycerine. This allows things to be made without supports in some cases because the liquid provides some support.

The price is a bit high for me, but I thought it was worth a mention. They don't actually focus much on the top down technique, but I think that is the main thing that differentiates it from quite a few printers that are similar otherwise.

Hello Everyone,

I upgraded my version of Firefox to the latest, and I discovered that the Contact page on the main site was giving a 404 not found error.

I had to convince FF to really reload the page (ctrl-F5) in order to get it to display.

So, it occurred to me that others might be experiencing similar issues with the main site, or the forums.

If you are having trouble for some reason, but can see this post, feel free to contact us at: fabric8rsite@gmail.com

We will do our best to get you straightened out.

  3D Printer currently o Kickstarter
Posted by: MisterAcoustic - 2017-11-17, 10:03 PM - Forum: General 3D Printing - No Replies

In case you aren't following kickstarter, I spotted a relatively new 3D printer campaign today:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mak...escription

I don't know what to make of it overall, but it does appear to have a ton of features, while being quite inexpensive in the smaller version. On the other hand, the smaller version is really quite small Smile.

Enjoy,
Stan

  Graph-based modeler, Antimony
Posted by: MisterAcoustic - 2017-11-17, 08:29 PM - Forum: 3D Printing Software - No Replies

Hi All,

I just found this. It was apparently released a few years ago, but I had never seen it. It looks like a nice alternative similar to OpenSCAD.

http://www.mattkeeter.com/projects/antimony/3/

https://github.com/mkeeter/antimony

It requires a little work - depending on your platform, you might have to build the software yourself:
https://github.com/mkeeter/antimony/blob...UILDING.md

I'm looking forward to checking it out a little more closely - but I'm on a variety of linux where I'll have to build it. So, I haven't done that yet.

Hope someone finds this useful.

Hi All!

I am anxiously awaiting my Kudo3D Bean resin printer.

I backed the kickstarter:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kud...=discovery

Anyone else out there getting in on this one?

I'm very hopeful that the end result will be a very capable printer at a very nice price (for me anyway, since I backed on day 1 and got early bird pricing) Smile.

  Calling All Q3D/QU-BD Owners and Interested Parties
Posted by: Administrator - 2017-11-15, 09:12 PM - Forum: Q3DPrinter (formerly QU-BD) Specific Discussion - No Replies

Hello Everyone!

There are a lot of folks checking in here, but at the moment, there isn't a lot of content. So they just keep lurking.

I'm calling on everyone with an interest to go ahead and join the forums, so that everyone can see how many people are really here.

The more people who are willing to participate, the more valuable the resource will be for all of us.

Come on! Join us, and let others see that they are not alone.

If I have my way, it only gets better from here.

  New User Activation Delays
Posted by: Administrator - 2017-11-13, 02:09 PM - Forum: Site Discussion - No Replies

Hi All,

If you choose to register for the forums, the Administrator should be sent an email asking them to activate your account.

Right now, there seems to be a huge delay in the sending of those emails. One user registered, and I did not get the email for 4 hours.

I have no clue why this is happening, but I will look into it.

In the meantime, just be aware that there may be a delay. I am monitoring the forums as often as possible to catch new user registrations, but I'd much rather the technology work the way it should Smile.

Hi Stan,

I think the link to the forums should be more prominent.  Perhaps even in the menu bar above.  Just an observation.

Hello all,

Looking forward to what happens here.  I don't currently own a 3D printer, but hope to someday.  Perhaps I'll glean enough knowledge here to make an intelligent decision about what to look for in one.

Posted by: Administrator - 2017-11-09, 02:00 PM - Forum: Site Discussion - Replies (2)

I have acquired some (possibly all) of the posts to the old fabric8r.com forums, via public sources.

However, I have no idea what I can actually do with them. I don't currently know if it would even be legal to make them available here.

If anyone has a suggestion about what needs to happen for me to make those available, please let me know in this thread.

Thanks!
