Interview: Chris Palmer aka Nop Head on the RepRap 10th Anniversary

To mark the 10th Anniversary of RepRap, 3D Printing Industry is interviewing early pioneers from the RepRap project and others who continue to share their work through Open Source licenses. Chris Palmer, aka Nop Head, was one of those early pioneers and helped many RepRap builders by supplying the 3D printed components necessary to construct […]

Interview: Richard Horne aka RichRap on the 10th Anniversary of RepRap

Our series on the 10th anniversary of the RepRap project continues with insights from Richard Horne. Richard Horne is probably better known by his online handle, RichRap. Through his blog, social media and as the co-author of ‘3D Printing for Dummies’, Richard Horne continues to succeed in his aim, “to help others build technology and […]

Vader molten metal 3d printer

You probably know that high-end industrial 3d printers can print metal objects by using laser or electron beams on fine metallic powder but Vader is something completely different. Vader is aimed at small company or professional workshop environment by implementing proprietary MagnetoJet Printing (MJP) and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) ceramic printhead technologies to reduce the machine cost. It […]

BoXZY brings additive and subtractive manufacturing hybrid to your desktop

Home 3d printers are incredible machines but they have some limitations. Sometimes you just need some extra tools and capabilities to finish your project. You may want to expand your tool options and experiment with wood carving, making your own milled PCBs for electronics projects or do some metal machining. BoXZY may be the type […]

Open Source 3D Printing Advances the Industry

(LinuxInsider)  The open source community is advancing 3D printing technology by conducting experiments that could take it to the next level. The desktop market has a price range of $5,000 or less. Open source developers are very active in this industry and are responsible for innovations in hardware, extrusion methods and materials. RepRap and Fab@Home have became synonymous with the open source, do-it-yourself 3D printer movement. Together they helped to generate the momentum needed to accelerate technology innovation and its migration into the consumer and maker space. The open source innovations helped hardware makers to drastically reduce the size of the 3D printing machines. That also reduced the cost of buying and using them.
