What the hell is this whole 3D printing thing that I seem to be reading about everywhere? As part of my stay as “DIY Catalyst” at The Edge I put together a short lecture as an introduction to 3D printing. It included a 3D printing demonstration using a RepRap printer and covered a whole bunch of different 3D printing techniques. Also covered different materials, design software, design stores and a broad summary of the different consumer printers on the market. You can check out the slides here:
Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon, Lego or eBay to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So a massive shoutout to everyone that enables this place. Thanks!
