M3D Pro is a Major Upgrade from Original M3D Micro

With a bigger build volume, heated print bed, and a new processor system, the M3D Pro is an exciting update to the original M3D Micro.

The M3D Micro 3D Printer was aKickstarterwhirlwind back in 2014. With over $3 million in funding, it had a rosy future as a practical, plug-n-play 3Dprinter for complete beginners on a budget.

Unfortunately, while it was certainly a functional printer for the $349 price-tag,reviews pointed out thatthe Micros sluggish speeds, spotty reliability, and tiny print volume are going to leave you wishing youd purchased something more advanced.

This week, M3D has announced exactly that something more advanced. Unveiled atCEWeek 2016in NYC, the M3D Pro was crafted specifically in response to customer feedback. According to M3D co-founder and CEO Michael Armani:

Weve designed the Pro to have all of the capabilities of a commercial printer at a cost consumers want. Its the natural next step for the industry, transcending the limitations of casual use and allowing users to create more practical, everyday objects.

The M3D Pro is available for pre-order in August 2016 at the early-bird special price of $500. But what do you get for your money?

At first glance, the obvious change is that the new printer is much bigger. Yay!

Inside, it features the worlds first dual-ARM processor system, combining data input from over two dozen sensors to achieve a higher level of reliability.

Theres also a heated bed as standard, to combat the troublesome warping that affected the M3D Micro, and a more generous build volume of 200 x 180 x 180 mm.

In addition, the M3D Pro has a printing speed of 60 mm/s. That should be enough to eliminate any quips about being slower than molasses.

Large Build Volume: Up to 7.8 tall or 7.2 x 7.2 wide

Embedded Recovery in case of print failure

Stand Alone Mode allowing printing without being tethered to a computer

Accuracy: 25-350 micron layer heights, 0.40 mm nozzle extrusion

Print speed: Typically prints filament at 60mm/s, and travels at speeds up to 120 mm/s

For users looking to print something big but still wanting an affordable, unobtrusive printer, the M3D Pro is an enticing option. The ability to use third party filaments is particularly welcome. But dont believe that guff about the M3D Pro bridging the gap between consumer and commercial users.

In reality, the company is trying to hit the 3D printer sweet-spot they missed the first time around. Until we see or hear evidence to the contrary, we suspect the M3D Pro is still very much a consumer desktop 3D printer.

3D Printable Files for Cody Wilsons Liberator Gun are Now Available to All on 3DShare

byWhitney HipoliteJun 18, 20153D Design3D Printed Guns3D Printing

The never-ending talk of 3D printing guns continues to run rampant among owners of 3D printers, as well as legislators and gun control activists all around the world. While the idea of 3D printing a gun can seem like quite a scary scenario, sometimes we just need to step back, relax, and take a look at the entire situation. Guns can be fabricated with or without a 3D printer, and the guns that have been made on desktop 3D printers have been far from reliable. These weapons have proven to be dangerous to the shooter as well as anyone in the vicinity when it is fired. While legislators and gun control lobbyists try their best to make a spectacle over the dangers of 3D printed guns, the reality is that if someone wants a gun to commit a crime, there are much easier ways of either fabricating or purchasing a firearm.

It was just last month thatwe reported onthe fact that the Liberator gun, designed by Cody Wilson, had made an appearance on 3D printing repository Thingiverse. After about 90 minutes of being up and readily available for anyone to download free of charge, it was removed by MakerBot, as a violation of their Terms of Service.

Earlier this week, however, the same designs have been made available by a user named ooscar8 on 3D printing repository3DShareIn a listingthat refers to the gun simply as Gun 8 mm printable, it appears as though all of the 3D printable parts for the famed Liberator gun are there for the taking.

With 3DShare marketing themselves as the reddit for 3D printing and as a 3D printing repository where anything goes, this latest upload of these design files will certainly test that claim. We caught up with3DSharefounder and CEO Mark Joseph, to ask him if he plans on removing the design files from the site.

We do not plan to remove the files until we are told there is a legal problem, Joseph tells . My opinion on what can be shared on platforms like 3DShare is not relevant in this discussion. We will listen to the community and the law makers in a democratic manner to make sure that any decisions are transparent and not the opinion of one person who runs a website.

So it appears that for the time being, there will be no action taken to prohibit the distribution of these 3D printable gun files from the 3DShare website. At the time of writing this article, the design files had been downloaded just five times(update: 76 downloads at the time of editing), yet many more people viewed and liked the item.

In the meantime, the debate over whether or not the distribution of 3D printed gun files should be outlawed remains one that is sure to have many legal battles ahead. What do you think? Should 3DShare remove these files? Should the distribution of 3D printable guns like Cody Wilsons Liberator be outlawed? Discuss in the3D Printed Gun Hits 3DShare forumthread on m.

Hi. I have Creality CR-10. My print didnt come out as planned. What settings should I change and to what exactly.

These are clearly printer test, not calibration pieces. Chamfers and texts do cause problems unrelated to the tested feature.

Thanks for the link. Im definitely looking for a new printer so hopefully itll be some comprehensive results.

Is the Negative Space Test radial or diametral? I.e. – does 0.2 refer to the difference in diameter of the pin and hole (in which case, the precision would be down to 0.1), or difference in radius (in which it would just be 0.2)?

I did the negative hold test. 6 – 4 came out off the bed. 3 needed a little push. But 2 is stuck in there.

What do i need to do to be able to get my printer printing that.

Working link to the evaluation instructions:

are theese things supposed to be printed without any support or with them?

Where can I find the actual test prints by the printers tested by Make?

What type infill would you recommend for printing these tests? Hollow or a light infill?

10%-20% is pretty standard. Most of these should be printed with the machines medium or standard settings so we are relying on the settings the vendor recommends.

Instructions link (Learn how to evaluate the test geometries at: heads to locked file? Is there anything more than on the web? ( I want to compare my test prints (including robot with joints) from MakerBot Replicator with those from the last 3D printers roundup. But if I will use partly different methodology, it will be hit and miss procedure. :o)

I will look into that and see what happened to the link.

The abbreviated link is still leading to a private wordpress site. However, I was able to open the link that tomulinek provided in his comment.

These calibration prints are almost completely useless without some way of correcting the errors. Any fool can hit print and rate the print but how are we supposed to improve the prints?

These probes are just to compare the machines in a more scientific fashion. We were not looking for a way to tell you how to tune your machine.

The problem with giving recommendations for fixes is that this may be different for every printer. Some things can be fixed in the slicing profiles, if the user has access to those. Other issues are inherent to the hardware of the machine and would take a manufacturer (or user created) upgrade. I suggest looking for super users of your machine on forums dedicated to that machine for details on how to get better prints from your particular printer.

True! I wish they had a guide on how to fix it…

For the accuracy/backlash test, I suggest that people report the measured length of the diameter in the X direction and the Y direction so that there will be a clear picture of where different peoples results differ.

Including the print time is important because slower printing may increase the quality of a print.

The how to evaluate document linked on the instructions page could be better. The document only details scoring in seven categories, while the magazine scores are broken into ten. It would also be very helpful and scores people come up with would be more consistent if pictures of prints and the scores they would get are provided – some of the scoring descriptions arent all that clear.

I think you should add to the description or the instructions here to include your…

STL Files What They Are and How to Use Them

STL Files: What They Are and How to Use Them

STL Files: What They Are and How to Use Them

Image of STL / CAD file. LaurensvanLieshout/Wikimedia Commons/CC BY-SA 3.0

The most common3D printerfile format is the .STL file. The file format is believed to have been created by 3D Systems from itsSTereoLithography CAD software and machines.

Like many file formats, there are other explanations for how this file-type received its name: Standard Tessellation, which means tiling or layering of geometric shapes and patterns (more or less).

An easy-to-understand definition of the STL file format explains it as a triangular representation of a 3D object.

If you look at the image, a CAD drawing shows smooth lines for the circles, where an STL drawing shows the surface of that circle as a series of connected triangles.

As you can see in the photo/drawing, the full CAD file of a circle would look like, well, a circle, but the STL version would insert a collection, ormesh, of triangles to fill that space and make it printable by most 3D printers. This is also why you will hear people refer to or describe 3D printer drawings as mesh files because it is not solid but made up of triangles creating a mesh or net-like appearance.

3D Printers work with the STL formatted files. Most 3D software packages, such as AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Pro/Engineer (which is now PTC Creo Parametric), among others, can create an STL file natively or with an add-on tool.

We should mention that there are several other major 3D printing file formats in addition to .STL.

These include .OBJ, .AMF, .PLY, and .WRL. For those of you who do not need to draw or create a STL file, there are plenty offree STL viewers or readersavailable.

After you design yourmodelin a CAD program, you have the option to save the file as an STL file. Depending on the program and the work you are doing, you may have to click Save As to see the STL file option.

Again, the STL file format is rendering, or creating the surface of your drawing in a mesh of triangles.

When you do a 3D scan of an object, with a laser scanner or some digital imaging device, you usually get back a mesh model and not a solid one, as you would if you had created a drawn-from-scratch 3D CAD drawing.

CAD programs make most of this pretty easy, doing the conversion work for you, however, some 3D modeling programs will give you greater control over the number and size of the triangles, for example, which can give you a more dense or intricate mesh surface and thus a better 3D print. Without getting into the specifics of a variety of 3D software, you can change several factors to create the best STL file:

This is the distance between the surface of the original drawing and the tessellated (layered or tiled) triangles.

You can have gaps between triangles, and changing the angles (deviation) between adjacent triangles will improve your print resolution meaning specifically that you have a better weld of two triangle surfaces. This setting enables you to increase how close objects are layered or tiled together (standard tessellation).

Binary files are smaller and easier to share, from an email or upload and download perspective. ASCII files have the advantage of being easier to visually read and check.

If you want a quick rundown of how to do this in a variety of software, visitStratasys Direct Manufacturing (formerly RedEye): How To Prepare STL Files article.

In short, a good stl file must conform to two rules. The first rule states that adjacent triangles must have two vertices in common. Second, the orientation of the triangles (what side of the triangle is in and what side is out) as specified by the vertices and normals must agree. If either of these two criteria are not met, problems exist in the stl file…

Often a stl file can be termed bad because of translation issues. In many CAD systems, the number of triangles that represent the model can be defined by the user. If too many triangles are created, the stl file size can become unmanageable. If too few triangles are created, curved areas are not properly defined and a cylinder begins to look like a hexagon (see example below). -GrabCAD: How to Convert STL Graphics To A Solid Model

3D printed firearms

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article should include a summary of3D printingFirearms.

SeeWikipedia:Summary stylefor information on how to incorporate it into this articles main text.

TheLiberatoris a physible, 3D-printable single shot handgun, the first such printable firearm design made widely available online.

In 2012, the U.S.-based groupDefense Distributeddisclosed plans to design a working plasticgunthat could be downloaded and reproduced by anybody with a3D printer.[1][2]Defense Distributed has also designed a 3D printableAR-15type rifle lower receiver (capable of lasting more than 650 rounds) and a variety of magazines, including ones for AK-47.[3]Soon after Defense Distributed succeeded in designing the first working blueprint to produce a plastic gun with a 3D printer in May 2013. TheUnited States Department of Statedemanded that they remove the instructions from their website, deeming it a violation of theArms Export Control Act.[4][5]

In 2013 a Texas company,Solid Concepts, demonstrated a 3D printed version of anM1911 pistolmade of metal, using an industrial 3D printer.[6]

After Defense Distributed released their plans, questions were raised regarding the effects that 3D printing and widespread consumer-levelCNCmachining[7][8]may have ongun controleffectiveness.[9][10][11][12]

The U.S.Department of Homeland Securityand theJoint Regional Intelligence Centerreleased a memo stating Significant advances in three-dimensional (3D) printing capabilities, availability of free digital 3D printer files for firearms components, and difficulty regulating file sharing may present public safety risks from unqualified gun seekers who obtain or manufacture 3D printed guns, and that proposed legislation to ban 3D printing of weapons may deter, but cannot completely prevent their production. Even if the practice is prohibited by new legislation, online distribution of these digital files will be as difficult to control as any other illegally traded music, movie or software files.[13]

Internationally, where gun controls are generally tighter than in the United States, some commentators have said the impact may be more strongly felt, as alternative firearms are not as easily obtainable.[14]European officials have noted that producing a 3D printed gun would be illegal under their gun control laws,[15]and that criminals have access to other sources of weapons, but noted that as the technology improved the risks of an effect would increase.[16][17]Downloads of the plans from the UK, Germany, Spain, and Brazil were heavy.[18][19]

Attempting to restrict the distribution over the Internet of gun plans has been likened to the futility of preventing the widespread distribution ofDeCSSwhich enabled.[20][21][22][23]After the US government had Defense Distributed take down the plans, they were still widely available viaThe Pirate Bayand other file sharing sites.[24]Some US legislators have proposed regulations on 3D printers, to prevent them being used for printing guns.[25][26]3D printing advocates have suggested that such regulations would be futile, could cripple the 3D printing industry, and could infringe on free speech rights.[27][28][29][30][31]

InAustralia, the state law ofNew South Walescriminalizes the possession of the digital plans and files to 3D print firearms under Section 51F of the Firearms Act 1996.[32]In at least one instance, a loaded 3D printed firearm was found during a police raid on a meth lab.[33]

In theUnited Kingdom, theFirearms Act 1968bans the manufacturing of guns and gun parts without government approval.[34]Hence, 3D printed weapons are de facto banned because the law makes bans all manufacturing, regardless of method. However, theHome Officeupdated its Guide on Firearms Licensing Law to specifically mention the ban on 3D printed weapons.[35]In 2013, a police raid on a Manchester gang resulted in seizures in what are believed to be 3D printed gun parts. The Greater Manchester police believe they found a trigger and a magazine along with a quantity ofgunpowder.[36]

Under theUndetectable Firearms Actany firearm that cannot be detected by a metal detector is illegal to manufacture, so legal designs for firearms such as theLiberatorrequire a metal plate to be inserted into the printed body. The act had a sunset provision to expire December 9, 2013. SenatorCharles Schumerproposed renewing the law, and expanding the type of guns that would be prohibited.[37]Proposed renewals and expansions of the current Undetectable Firearms Act (H.R. 1474S. 1149) include provisions to criminalize individual production of firearm receivers and magazines that do not include arbitrary amounts of metal, measures outside the scope of the original UFA and not extended to cover commercial manufacture.[38][39]

On December 3, 2013, theUnited States House of Representativespassed the billTo extend the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988 for 10 years (H.R. 3626; 113th Congress).[40]The bill extended the Act, but did not change any of the laws provisions.[41]

InJapan, in May 2014, Yoshitomo Imura was the first person to be arrested for possessing printed guns. Imura had five guns, two of which were capable of being fired, but had no ammunition. Imura had previously posted blueprints and video of his guns to the Internet, which set off the investigation.[42]

MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer Review Price

Even ifdesktop 3D printersarent quite as ubiquitous yet as, say, inkjet printers, the truth of the matter is this technology is maturing faster than many expected and there arent quite as many major leaps forward in the 3D printing realm as there have been in the past.

For the most part, 3D printing technology has matured especially in the desktop space and folks understand exactly what they are going to be getting when they decide to go in this direction. At the same time, there are a handful of companies that continue to push the technology a little bit further with every system that they produce, and none are leading the charge quite as hard as the folks at MakerBot.

With the MakerBot Replicator 2X, this company has designed and developed an experimental grade 3D printer designed specifically to push boundaries in the industry. This is an advanced unit that makes the most of some pretty groundbreaking new technology, and gives those that decide to invest in this particular system the opportunity to create in ways that arent possible with your standard 3D printing technology.

If you want to know whether or not the MakerBot Replicator 2X is perfect for you, and whether or not an experimental printer like this one gives you the flexibility that you have been so desperate for, check out the rest of our quick guide.

As we touched upon above, the MakerBot Replicator 2X is not your every day, run-of-the-mill 3D printer by any stretch of the imagination.

This is a very much advanced system that makes the most of new and proprietary technology, a system designed to use dual extrusion modules that allow you to craft and create in ways not possible previously (unless you had a skyhigh budget and were willing to purchase commercial grade pieces of equipment).

But even though the MakerBot Replicator 2X is an experimental system, that doesnt mean that the folks at MakerBot made the system overly complicated or complex. No, these engineers have continued to focus on simplifying and streamlining the 3D production printing process as much as possible and the MakerBot Replicator 2X illustrates just how far this company is willing to go to make 3D printing accessible to everyone and anyone.

The very first thing youll notice about the MakerBot Replicator 2X is that it isnt all that much larger than most of your standard 3D printing solutions available on the market today. At the same time, it would be a major mistake for you to think that this unit is a carbon copy of your run-of-the-mill 3D printers it is anything but that!

As we highlighted earlier, this unit makes the most of a dual extrusion module that allows you to print with ABS and dissolvable filament modules manufactured by this company. Having the opportunity to print in both of these different filament materials (at the same time if you want) opens up a lot of creativity and new production solutions that arent available with single extrusion module systems.

On top of that, youre also able to use two interlaced colors when you are 3D printing production materials. You can print precisely with these dual aligned nozzles without any hot swapping of material necessary, and no longer do you have to pause your print project to swap out filament systems for certain parts of your production process.

This opens up some really complex design and intricate/interior supports that can be produced using dissolvable filament. Having the opportunity to scaffold the interior of your project while it is going through the 3D print process and then being able to dissolve that interior scaffold to produce a clean project later down the line is a benefit that cannot be overstated.

The MakerBot Replicator 2X is a true game changer in the world of 3D printing, and you would be making a major mistake to overlook the functionality that these dual extrusion systems bring to the table.

The biggest special feature that the MakerBot Replicator 2X has to offer is most definitely that dual extrusion system that we have spent a bit of time highlighting.

The dissolvable filament system itself is what really separates this unit from the rest of the pack, as you are now able to produce incredibly complex 3D materials without having to waste ABS filament or having to come up with convoluted production processes that kill time and efficiency to get the finished material you are looking for.

Printing at a 100 m layer resolution and optimized for ABS filament overlays, the MakerBot Replicator 2X is a system that is close to a commercial application but available in a desktop style format. You definitely get your moneys worth when you decide to make this your primary 3D printer!

Having the ability to print in two different materials or two different colors at once without pausing or hot swapping is a major benefit of the MakerBot Replicator 2X.

Built in design and engineering software interfaces directly with all other industry-leading solutions and any other product from the MakerBot company.

The 100 m layer resolution guarantees you get a smooth to the such surface without any extra finishing required.

The build volume of the MakerBot Replicator 2X isnt quite as extensive as some of the other 3D printer options available.

The price tag on the MakerBot Replicator 2X is a little bit higher than standard single extruder solutions (though that is to be expected).

The MakerBot Replicator 2X is a next generation 3D printing solution that is going to capture a lot of attention from folks that are serious about 3D printing complex projects without sacrificing resolution or the finished product in any way.

While not ideal for absolutely everyone, if you are looking to push the boundaries of what 3D printing solutions are capable of, want to make the most of the amazing versatility this system has to offer, and are willing to tinker with new production processes and materials, the MakerBot Replicator 2X is likely to be right up your alley!
