SwissPen: Pen – 3d printer

3D Printers

If we believed that the traditional Swiss Army knife had reached the summit of “take-anything-in-my-pocket” has come a gadget that wants to revolutionize the 3D home printing. Leveraging the wake of the 3Doodler, known as the first printer 3d pen, the direct competitor appears SwissPen. Like its predecessor, SwissPen works by extruding plastic preheated allows us to go any 3d drawing freehand design. But, what makes it different from the previous? For accuracy obtained through the Swiss engineering course design.

New personal printer: Robox

Printer

Robox is the ultimate personal 3D printer within just opened to raise funds for their manufacture, or what is said crowdfunding elegantly. The fundraising period starts today and lasts until December 20. So all those that you have souls and philanthropists have a new project for 3D printing.

Let’s go to the 3D printer. Robox is a FDM printer, i.e. cast thread and was designed with the objective of not exceeding 1000 pounds, have simple operation and not compromise the functionality and quality of printed pieces.

Microsoft launched 3D Builder, a essential driver for 3D printers

Printing

Microsoft released a new 3D Builder application. This application does not become a driver for us to print in our 3D printers from our design programs, which is what I end up doing, but it is a first step in this direction.

In what is essentially is that Windows 8.1 will understand 3D file formats in the same way that understands JPEG photos. Simply, we double click on a 3D file and Windows will open it, submit it on the screen and can rotate, zoom and view the model from all angles.
