3D Printing ● Length (X), width (Y) and depth (Z) ● Icing on a cake. – Make a flower from butter and sugar icing.

2D Printing ● Inkjet printers – Cartridge is X axis – Paper feed is Y axis – No depth. http://www.computershopper.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/media/images/how-it-works-inkjet-printer/221000-1-eng-US/how-it-works-inkjet-printer.jpg

Add Z Axis ● Print using molten plastic ● Move print head up slightly ● Layer plastic ● Cooled plastic = 3D object

Industrial ● Fills up a small room ● $20,000 to $50,000 ● Used for prototyping ● Don't forget the ink! Production series from Stratasys

Hobby Market ● Plastic (the ink) costs $30 a kilogram

Question: How much would you pay for a 3D printer?

RepRap ● Replicating Rapid Prototyper ● Print a printer from a printer – 70% to 90% ● Self-replicating printers! ● http://reprap.org Watch the video:

MakerBot ● Early open source printer ● Became proprietary ● Acquired by Stratasys ● Printers range from $1200 to $7000 ● http://makerbot.com Cupcake

Printrbot at Kickstarter ● Goal of $25,000 ● Raised $830,827 on Kickstarter

Printrbot Bots ● http://printrbot.com

Parts ● Motors ● Bed ● Extruder ● Filament ● Threaded rods ● Smooth rods ● Pulleys ● Gears ● ...

Plastic ● ABS ● PLA ● Other

Tweaks ● Open Source => Lots of tweak'ability! ● Tweaks make it better. – http://printrbottalk.com – https://www.youtube.com/user/printrbot
