Thanks fine folks at Metalab!

I was visiting Metalab after attending 29c3 and they let me use their lazzzor.

 

I was inspired to create a map using the Dymaxion projection from xkcd:977. Once the pieces came out of the laser cutter it was clear that they'd look great as an isocohedral globe. Here it's just taped together, but I hope to bevel the edges and install hinges on some edges and magnets on others. The idea being that it can be flattened out into (near enough to) the Dymaxion Fuller projection and then pulled up into the globe.

thanks to Franziska Holz for taking professional pictures :)

This is MakerBot #43.

 

While visiting the MakerBot team in NYC in May, I modified the Open Source CAD drawings, adding teeth, eyes and the Metalab logo and lasercut the front panel using the laser cutter at NYC Resistor.

 

Open Source hardware ftw!

The pcb for the prototype board for one of my hardware related jobs arrived. So I spent all night hacking with Martin at Metalab :)

My Makerbot Replicator 2X has arrived! I won this baby in the Makerbot Thingiverse Customizer Challenge (: www.makerbot.com/blog/2013/03/10/makerbot-customizer-chal... :) and it arrived in less than 2 weeks.

 

Sadly it got damaged a little during shipping. From the cardboard box it's obvious that the fedex guys must have handled it quite rough :( but thanks to the excellent and super fast Makerbot support I got it repaired in a few hours :)

 

I immediately tested the two material print by printing the makerbot coin that is on the SD card that comes with the printer. This worked out of the box :)

 

Because I really like PLA much better than ABS I then decided to switch to PLA. The switch somehow clogged the right nozzle but this was not really a problem since it's super simple to get to the hot end to clean it :) On the other printers I've used so far a clogged nozzle usually means you spend a few hours taking the extruder apart so it was a very positive surprise that it only took me 15 minutes to clean the nozzle this time :)

 

Then I printed an emmet bearing because gears are awesome: www.thingiverse.com/thing:53451

 

And then the first "useful" parts: Two customized spool holders (both in the picture): www.thingiverse.com/thing:44906

 

After taking this picture I printed the replacement parts that I need for my old 3D printer which broke a few days after I had won the Replicator 2X...I guess it was jealous ;)

 

To summarize the day: I'm really impressed by this machine so far and I have to print more two color designs ;) Stay tuned for a two colored music box...

It's like a throwie, only on water.

I hate that thing. Took half of my weekend. Blah.

CNC milled PCBs by crysn

I soldered the LEDs and both prototypes work like expected. I have not tested the IR PWM yet though...(have to write more firmware for that) Just waiting for the new case...it's printing right now ;)
