Hywel Vaughan and his girlfriend Sarah had been together for just over three years. As his New Years resolution of 2012, he decided to ask her to marry him.
Are you sick of your iPhone 5 not having a dock to sit comfortably in? Are you a huge Game of Thrones fan? If you answered yes to both, this latest 3D printed creation may be just for you.
While the rest of us were enjoying the dulcet tones of Bing Crosby, Amanda Ghassaei of Instructables was as busy as ever over the holiday: she posted a ‘compilation’ video of her experiments in 3D printing 12” records, for which she has unsurprisingly published the plans on Instructables , on the day after Christmas. “In order to explore the current limits of 3D printing technology, I’ve created a technique for converting digital audio files into 3D-printable, 33RPM records and printed a few prototypes that play on ordinary turntables.” Suffice it to say that it’s a significant improvement upon Fred Murphy’s diverting Fisher Price records : This project was my first experiment extending this idea beyond electronics. I printed these records on a UV-cured resin printer called the Objet Connex500.
If you thought downloading music from the internet had nothing new to offer, think again. One of the tech editors over at Instructables — Amanda Ghassaei — has put a new twist on the digital delivery of music by 3D printing a record.
If you’re looking for fashion accessories produced on your own 3D printer you may have difficulty finding 3D models in public repositories. Instead you might consider designing 3D fashion accessories yourself – and there’s an Instructables guide to show you how.
We want to share with you an amazing 3D printing project shared step-by-step by fred27 on Instructables . He is the one who created a 3D printed Fisher Price toy record player. And he shows you now how to create your own records for it! This project will speak to the kid in you.
Well done to the winners of the Instructables Make-It-Real Challenge! This projects included interactive visual art, green technology (electric vehicles!), robotics and more. The crafters of the winning Instructables showed enormous versatility as their creations drew from many different disciplines: mechanical and electrical engineering, computer science, architecture, X-ray and image technology, carpentry and even food science. One of the first prize winners is Bryan Cera
They didn’t actually print a chocolate brain, rather the team from Inition took MRI scan data from their founder Andy Millins and created a 3D model. Once you have a 3D model, as readers know well, you can do some 3D printing.
Detailed instructions for a Stereolithographic 3D printer on Instructables. Rob Hopeless has posted an Instructable showing how to build a Stereolithographic 3D printer at home as part of the Instructables contest to win an Epilog Laser cutter.
