Build your own 3D printer thanks to BCN3D Technologies!

Here is one of the main actors of our share-friendly time : The Fundació CIM – a nonprofit Technological Institute of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – attached to the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya-Barcelona Tech, which goal is create and transfer technology to society through teaching, I+D+I activities and the presentation of advanced technological services. BCN3D RELEASES NOT ONLY THE BCN3D SIGMA DESIGN BUT ALL THEIR KNOW HOW BCN3D Technologies was born as a project from the Fundació CIM. This University DNA is what pushed the BCN3D management team to open their doors so everyone can have access to their technology.   With this initiative, named Open Source 360º, BCN3D Technologies will share all the engineering content produced during the design and fabrication of the BCN3D Sigma, their flagship. In this sense, BCN3D Technologies has announced the release of all its documentation and contents transversely, taking another step in the Open Source development. So, Open Source 360º will have all the information of the areas that form the BCN3D Technologies printers, divided in five levels and it will be published under the CERN Open Hardware Licence (CERN OHL) and General Public License v3 (GPLv3). All this information is already available in the BCN3D Technologies website. Regarding software it will be published the BCN3D Sigma’s firmware –Marlin’s evolution- source code, as well as the BCN3D Cura. Also, the users will have access […]
