Material wise really cheap, a kilo of filament is <$50. So if there is 50g of plastic it would be <2.5$. It takes time though and rarely does the product look like the pictures that @CAPSLOCKSTUCK posts. In reality it would need some post processing and it would look more like this:


But it makes awesome R2D2 like sounds :D

I guess a terrorist could sneak one on board a plane. Scary thought.

Yep i should think it probably takes ages, the materials need time to cool or the weight would deform them for one thing.

No doubt the process and materials used will improve.

I think the fact the threaded nut and bolt actually works and was made in one piece is amazing . The void between the screw surfaces must be pretty small and accurately done. Its nothing like the traditional process to manufacture a nut and bolt in steel for example.

Cutting edge

equipment/software
materials
techniques
skills
applications



A lot of them are artworks and stunning to look at and that is before your brain tries to figure out how it could be done.

A 3 d printed spanner was manufactured on the ISS the other day, then they used it. Remarkable.

The potential is amazing.

post some more stuff here when you find it and we can watch this tech develop. I wonder what the military are doing with it for example.

Those prints are brilliant. Building a nes box with a raspberry pi in an old nes box. Always wanted to build one in a famicon case but can't find any. Wonder if I could get a to scale one printed?

I have only used the Makerbot at my uni for my thesis and they can only print with one filament at a time so printing that in one piece would not be possible. What printer was it printed with? Also takes time is relative, i mean for a more complex part it may take few hours but i still if the shape is complex it would be much quicker than using CNC. That is where additive manufacturing (3d printing, injection moulding, electro forming etc.) will be really useful in the future

You can design your own case in CAD and send it to be 3D printed for you

That is super impressive.

I hope other members with experience of this can find the time to post on here.
What is the potential for soldered parts to be incorporated into plastic components for example.

Im thinking DIY PCB's, no im not, im dreaming DIY PCB's.

These are £ 4,500.00 in the UK

these models look pretty good is it the one you used?





watch the vid, the models are high quality.

Nah I have used Makerbot Replicator (5th generation)

That is super impressive.

There is on going reasearch for printing electronics (some want to do it with EEE parts even) as well. And there was a kickstarter project for printing PCBs

"3D Printed RC Car Tops 30mph On Rubber-Band Power

This amazing machine comes to us via DesignBoom.com, and is the work of Max Greenberg, Sameer Yeleswarapu, and Ian Cullimore. Dubbed “Cirin,” the car was designed for Formula E racing at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Battery power operates the steering and braking systems and a Tactic radio system controls the car, but propulsion power is derived entirely from energy stored in a wound rubber band that measures sixteen feet long before winding. Top speed exceeds 30mph, and the car can travel a few hundred feet per run. SolidWorks was used for the mechanical design, and the unique, organic-looking chassis was created using Rhino and T-Spline programs. Design team member Max Greenberg explains, “We drew inspiration from mid 1950’s formula 1 cars as well as the truss structures found inside the bones of a bird’s wing. These structure are both light and rigid, ideal properties for the car we wanted to design.” It shows–this thing is beautiful."



"You can bet a power drill is used to wind that rubber band. Doing it by hand would take for-ev-er."



"Granted, there’s no suspension to clutter the design, but it sure does look sleek. The chassis was 3D-printed using a laser-sintered nylon powder material. There’s no way such an intricate design could be constructed as a single piece using injection molding techniques."




"Aluminum bevel gears transfer rubber band power to the axle. If the tires look familiar, it’s because they’re Pro-Line Ions."



"This exploded view shows the carbon-fiber tube that runs down the car’s center. The tube withstands the tension of the tightly wound rubber band, so all the chassis has to do is support the weight of the car."
