makeSEA Knowledge - Printing Magnetic PLA from Proto Pasta with Replicator 2X

Printing Magnetic PLA from Proto Pasta with Replicator 2X There are nice new 3D-printable materials. How cool would it be to design objects which contain materials with different properties, different than just colors. So I ordered a Replicator 2+ and some spools of filament from Proto Pasta. When it was finally delivered, I couldn't wait to try the magnetic PLA (actually it...

When successful it would be very useful, because pitch and diameter were freely adjustable, and...

The effort to get familiar with a new material is very high, and...

makeSEA Analysis - Magnetic PLA - Electromagnetic Tests

Magnetic PLA -Electromagnetic Tests Magnetic PLA from Proto Pasta must be useful as core of an electromagnet.

In order to find the final answer, I should assemble two identical motors, where only the material of...

makeSEA Analysis - Printing Conductive PLA from Proto Pasta with Replicator 2x - Resistance

Printing Conductive PLA from ProtoPasta with Replicator 2X - Resisitance After suceeding with printing magnetic PLA, it wasn't a big problem to print conductive PLA. This material behaves very similar as normal PLA. With additional cooling and lubrication, it is possible to print PLA with 205°C nozzle and 60°C build platform on Capton. The material seems a bit more brittle compared...

The goal of this project was to 3D-print a fully functional wind turbine at small scale, using commonly available printing technologies and materials. By combining the 3d printed makeSEA motor and with the exploration of other technologies, Christoph has created a piece that is so much more than just a wind turbine. The project should be inspiring and motivating for many people.

Torsion Hinge

Torsion Hinge

Torsion Hinge

In contrast to the flexing hinge, this hinge has thin parts, which are stressed only by torsion. The torsion bands are long enough to avaid plastic deformation.

This type of hinge should last longer than the flexible hinge. However this hinge can not carry as much load as the flexing hinge, even printed with PLA.

Standards

Standards in the 3D Print Industry

By lending your voice, you can help us influence 3D printer manufacturers to play fair and adopt standards that help protect your work and provide interoperability between file formats, authoring tools, and printers.

makeSEA is developing open and freely distributed software and API standards to help facilitate attribution and control as well as dynamic metadata cataloging.

If you look at today's 3D landscape, standards are evolving to solve industry problems. Standards like 3MF are a great start, and much needed. With printer and software manufacturers well represented in the discussions, independent designers need a seat at the table. makeSEA is here to represent that interest: to help ensure the outcome evolves in a manner that is beneficial to all, not just the technology providers or major brand licensors.

makeSEA provides open standards and software APIs designed to work independently of any particular format, application, or printer. Our goal is to encourage manufacturers to build native support for our open DRM and tracking controls into their technologies - to benefit features and interoperability across platforms. And most importantly, this support will give the independent creator and designer the ability to track and control their original work.

 

Working to Establish an Open DOM

One major key to interoperability is creating a Document Object Model, or DOM, that is able to help organize large hierarchies of assets and information, or metadata, that is used to describe them. For example, all of the different types of medical devices, or machines types, or - well - you get the idea. makeSEA serves to publish an open and ever-improving DOM for objects based on a combination of existing and well formed standards, along with the evolving input of our members. Your catalogs help inform the makeSEA DOM in a way that will, over time, improve the interoperability of objects. The more detailed your catalog metadata is, the better the DOM becomes.

 

Join Us

Use the makeSEA Community to be heard and lend support to the makeSEA Standards Committee to represent your interests and concerns. Whether the issue is color management, interoperability, compatability, or open format, we're here to help represent the independent designer on these critical agendas.

Once a member, you will be informed on important developments as we represent your interests. Our participation in events like 3DDC, IEEE committees, and key standards symposiums and conferences will help ensure that you are well represented by a technology agnostic community comprised of independent designers with similar interests and concerns.

makeSEA strives to assert standards that help drive adoption, and facilitate growth of, 3D design standards. We want your voice heard - become a part of the movement today!


Spatula B with Teeth

Spatula B with Teeth

Spatula B with Teeth

This collection mimics the B Collection but with the addition of teeth for more grip! Use it as needed to mix, spread and lift materials in the kitchen, the craft room, garage... uses are endless!

It’s the same design as “Spatula B“ but the blade is toothed. Useful for distributing even amounts of all kind of gels on a surface. In the model, the tooth size depends on the tooth distance.

Visit the wiki post for an overview of all the objects available in the Library of Useful Objects.


Spatula B

Spatula B

Spatula B

Call it what you will - is it a spatula, a turner, a flipper or what? Based on the more traditional spatula design, this one offers a variety of blade and handle configurations.

Same blade as “Spatula A” but with a different shaped handle. The handle in the STL files has a fixed size (60mm long, 12mm thick, 20mm width). Handle parameters and slant of blade front can be adjusted by a parameter in the f3d-file.

Spatula A with Teeth

Spatula Collection A with Teeth

Spatula Collection A with Teeth

It’s the same design as “Spatula A“ but the blade is toothed. Useful for distributing even amounts of all kind of gels on a surface. In the model the tooth size depends on the tooth distance.

A spatula with a very basic rectangular shape. The blade front is slanted with 45°. The handle is a small extension on one edge of the blade, making the spatula more “handy”, and in particular makes the blade rigid along one dimension. Thickness can be very thin in order to make the spatula more flexible. It’s recommended to adjust the slicing diameter according the the blade thickness - it should print at minimum 4 layers. An even number of layers is also preferable, because the blade flexibility and robustness is more even. Flexibility also depends on the selected material. Tested with PETG and PLA.

Solar Water Distiller

Solar Water Distiller

Solar Water Distiller

This project is to design a 3d printable system which can clean polluted water.

The base consists of an array of basins (black) which are filled with polluted water. The sun shines through the transparent lid and heats up the water and the air inside the box. The water evaporates, it can’t escape the box, humidity reaches 100%. Since the lid has a lower temperature (environment temperature), the vapor will condensate and build water droplets at the inside surface of the lid. The surface of the lid is tilted, and condensated water droplets are collected in a channel at the bottom edge of the lid. Read more about this project on the wiki post.


Snap Fit Round B

Snap Fit Round B

Snap: Fit Round B

It’s a dismountable snap fit. The holding force is relatively low (depending on the hook width). The knob is the protruding middle part between two holes. If the two parts are snapped together, they can be twisted a bit like a hinge. By designing a smaller neck for the knob (or extending the cylindrical shape without neck), its rotation angle can be increased. The f3d-file has some more parameters. Tested with PETG and PLA.

It is basically the same design as “Snap Fit Round A”, with a different orientation of the mounting plate.

Snap Fit Round A

Snap Fit Round A

Snap: Fit Round A

It’s a dismountable snap fit. The holding force is relatively low (depending on the hook width). This makes it useful for a door lock. The design is related to the “Snap Fit Double B” with flipped hooks pointing towards each other. The knob is the protruding middle part between two holes. If the two parts are snapped together, they can be twisted a bit like a hinge. By designing a smaller neck for the knob (or extending the cylindrical shape without neck), its rotation angle can be increased. The f3d-file has some more parameters. Tested with PETG and PLA.
