Let me start with the hottest topic which has opened an eye in the 3d printer revolution. There are many pros and cons in both the filament materials. At first, even though many companies prefer to use ABS and many companies are using ABS filament .Let me jot out the basic difference between PLA and ABS.
As it produces gaseous fumes which are injurious to health, while printing with ABS filament, it is hard to perform 3d printing in a closed atmosphere. Ventilation is required while printing with ABS.
But, when it comes to PLA (Corn Starch Plastic) does not produce any gaseous fumes while performing 3d printing, it is environmental friendly.
ABS printed object is more flexible, more durable, more heat resistant, toughest, strongest, more resistant to chemicals, not less than ABS, even PLA printed object is more rigid.
While printing objects with PLA, heater bed is not required, whereas heater bed is required for objects to be printed with ABS.
When it comes to ABS, there are very fewer color choices whereas in PLA there are wide variety of colors like translucent, whereas in PLA there are wide variety of colors available.
ABS melts at a little higher temperature whereas PLA melts at a lower temperature than ABS.
PLA is much cheaper when compared to the cost of ABS.
With the help of PLA very large prints are easily done, but whereas with ABS very large prints cannot be easily achieved.
Well, generally, PLA is the best material for large objects since it can be nearly warp free when compared to ABS. Even on a high end commercial printer, really large ABS objects present a real problem.
If you’ve been following the recent explosion of interest in 3D printing, you’ve probably seen pretty much anything made with those amazing pieces of equipments like Guns, accessories ,clothing and much more…But, now it has become an excelling time for gear wraps too. Nowadays, people find it difficult to carry even the most lightest object handy and hence gear wraps have paved a way to solve their problem. Gear wrap is a user friendly equipment which is used for everyday carry crowd.
It is used to keep cables organized in a backpack or messenger bag.
Hence, when life can be made even more easier, people would get adapted to such emerging technologies quickly.Exploring such a winding task yielded lots of failures, but even among those failures there was an Everest success.
This is the example of how the life could be made easier.
It can be printed in a variety of different colors depending upon the color of the filament used.
Such different colored beautiful, amazing gear wraps has attracted lots of people all over the world and has come into existence which can be used commonly in day to day life.
We are extremely delighted to announce that we are going to participate in an international expo which is going to be held on June 13, 2013 at Mackay, Australia. It is one of the prestigious event which would be mainly focused on the 3d printing techniques and the emerging trends in the 3d printing technology.
The expo will feature speakers including Bruce Grey, managing director at the Advanced Manufacturing CRC, Professor Milan Brandt from RMIT, and John Barnes, CSIRO’s Titanium Theme Leader.
There is expected to be over 200 delegates attending representing local businesses in Mackay and surrounding areas, as well as a wide range of 3D printing industry leading sponsors and exhibitors.
Event Coordinator, Lila Clarke, said that this highly anticipated conference is one of the first in Australia to address the radical impact of 3D printing in a range of industries including engineering, construction, architecture, manufacturing and health.
“3D printing is a technology that allows you to create real things in lots of different materials by building an object micro-layer by micro-layer. Even using inexpensive 3D printers, each layer can be as small as 0.1 mm – thinner than a sheet of paper.
“3D printing is about adding substance rather than removing it, whereas with laser cutting and CNC milling you are taking substance away.
“At the basic level, you can recreate objects layer by layer in plastic. The mind-blowing future includes the possibility of printing buildings in concrete as well as printing human organs layer by layer using cells and stem cells.
“What computing did for information in the virtual world, 3D printing and additive manufacture is now doing for manufacture in the real world.
“The reason for choosing Mackay instead of a major city is that there are more engineers by population ratio than any other city in Australia. There is a significant mining boom and extensive support surrounding it.
“Regional centers like Mackay generally have to travel to major cities to visit conferences. Holding the conference in Mackay allows the target market to be directly involved from the very start”, Ms Clake added.
You can find our talents exposed under the below URL http://3dprintingexpo.org/exhibitors.html
We have been hearing a lot of questions from our customers asking us about the “working of 3d printers at low cost with great accuracy” asking us how different we are, when compared to our competitors. I would like to explain how different we are when compared to our competitors at one go.
We are an eco friendly company as we are using PLA filament but, whereas our competitors are using ABS filament.
The advantages of using PLA (corn start plastic) are, it is an ideal material to use in 3D printers. It is pleasant to work with. It is available both in clear as well as in color. It is quite pleasant during printing and does not smell and does not produce noxious fumes. It is considered safe with foodstuffs and has medical bio neutral uses.
Mechanically, it fuses together well, when molten and will shatter rather than bend. PLA is widely considered a hard sounding acoustics plastic whereas ABS which is softer and more flexible.
Colored PLA is stronger and prints better than optically clear PLA. It is somewhat self lubricating when in sliding contact with metal surfaces. Clear PLA is suitable for investment castings.
PLA vaporizes leaving no char. It will not degrade but breaks down if you compost it. In normal use it is quite stable, but also kinder on the environment. We have tried countless types of PLA and are only selling those that are easy in use, producing fine prints.
Whereas, the disadvantages of using ABS are that, it produces gaseous fumes. Ventilation is required during printing to prevent health hazards. It is tougher than PLA and flexes rather than shatters. It abrades easily. Blockages require acetone to clear them.
The best price which we are offering for the filament used in the 3d printers is $42 AUD per kg whereas the price offered by our competitor is $48 USD which is a little bit higher than ours.
Our 3d printers is of low cost which starts from the range of $595 AUD and which is of high accuracy and precision.
But our competitors’ price is very high which starts from $2,799 which is in a way too expensive.
Also the printer bed which we use is acrylic plate, which is not that hot and ensures safety, whereas the printer bed used by others is a black aluminum plate which is very hot and would be unsafe to use.
If the 3d printer has to be bought it can be delivered to the customer as a print ready kit as well as an unassembled kit which is in a way comfortable to use.
But when we compare ourselves with others they are delivering the product only as a whole kit.
And the advantage of buying our printer is that we deliver it to any country as fast as we can and at the same time once the order has got booked we make the customer feel comfortable by sending SMS alerts during each step of transportation.
And, even after the delivery of the kit there is no need to panic because even if there is any confusion with the device, there is always online skype support who would be able to help you out.
Atlast we have got best customer reviews for our product from different countries which could be well explained with the help of the blog http://coolstuffwelike.blogspot.in/2012/04/3d-stuffmakers-reprap-3d-printer.html written by one of our customers about us.
3D Printing has entered into almost every field. But, yeah everyone knows that it has created a magic in manufacturing industries, medicine, fashion and so on. Why can’t we think about this printing out of the box? 3D Printing has become advantageous for players in food industry. They are tending to create attractiveness in the bottle. If it is going to be an apple juice, trend has now become to create a container in the shape of an apple. So, such innovative creation has created a red carpet welcome among public.
At first microwave ovens were considered to be the costliest of all appliances, but now microwave ovens have caught a prominent place in each and everyone’s kitchen. Similarly now even the 3d food printers have come into existence.
These food printers require edible inks and electronic blueprints called “FabApps”. This machine prints food using multiple cartridges, going line by line until the desired shape is extruded. The electronic blueprint specifies exactly which materials go where–it is essentially a blueprint of the food item. It’s a way to create new flavors and forms of food by varying its chemical properties.
Therefore for past few decades, we have been liking chocolates by identifying its taste, whereas now with the advancement of 3d printing even the chocolates could be marketed depending upon customers liking.
This event had happened in Japan. FabCafe invited a group of customers to attend a workshop at the beginning of March to have their body scanned to create a 3D file of their likeness. Upon returning at the next session, the café had the files turned into plastic moulds ready to pour in the jelly. After they had set, the customers were left with a unique gift to give to their partners in time for White Day.
Therefore 3d printing technology has not left the food and beverages department and thereby creating an impact in the marketing of juices, chocolates and what not…..
“3D Printing has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything”- Barrack Obama
3D printing is a boon to the society. We know that 3D printing technology has proved its prominence in almost every field.
3D Printing has leapfrogged various difficulties in simple manufacturing techniques.Gone are those days,which involved lots of tedious process.It has made a revolution in Fashion, medicine,interior designing and what not….There is no need for one to depend upon an interior designer, a fashion designer and such.
When you have a 3D printer handy, there is no need for a person to search for a footwear warehouse or an online shopping site to buy the latest fashioned shoe or an apparel, because there is a facility for a person to create either a high heeled shoe or a flat shoe of their own choice and of their own trend.
The latest kind of web-like materiel which appears on a dress was designed by burlesque queen Dita Von Teese which was done with the help of this technology.
It was designed in such a way that there were crystals studded on the mesh- like material.
Therefore industrial revolution has paved a way to new technologies helping them to develop from the scratch i.e from Medicine to Fashion.
Apart from these it has created a revolution in the field of architecture among the Dutch architects.
The landscape House was designed with the help of D-Shaped printer which can produce sections of upto 6 * 9 metres using a mixture of sand and binding agent.
Galaxy Smartphone cases are created with the help of Ucreate3D which uses 3D printing technique.
“For 95 percent of phones, there are no decent cases available. Either that or you have those ugly sleeves. There’s really no choice for consumers,” UCreate3D co-founder Vincent van de Poll had told.
So for the problem of manufacturing a mobile case again 3d printing has helped.
When it comes to the medical technology again a person named Eric Monger who had been affected by cancer led to the removal of larger part of his face due to which he was not able to eat and now with the help of 3D printing technology his dental problem has got solved with the help of prosthesis and now he has planned to marry his fiancé Karen.
Atlast I would like to sum up with this saying that once the 3d printers goes mainstream, it would be heralding with the problems of manufacturing techniques, vanishing almost quite a lot of discrepancies in the evolving technology.

And the latest buzz a girl who can’t even lift her hand on her own power, and that where the 3d printer came handy, 3d printer create WREX which will help her to lift her hands on own to do her own basic needs. This gave lot of confidence to doctors that we can bring real great useful changes in medical industry using 3d printer.
Using this 3d printer another amazing thing happen, want to know what is it ? using 3d printer a guy named Andrew Blaked created a Gun which went 200 rounds. DO you know how much he spent? just a few thousand dollars and spent only few days, yes it is a deadly weapon that came from 3d printer. All we need is people should not miss use it.
3D Printing Services are an incredible alternative for all clients –from the solitary hobbyist to the huge building firm. Depending on if you don’t plan on printing normally, its much shabbier to contract another person to print your outline. For numerous distinct designers and fashioners, 3D Printing utilities furnish access to engineering that the hobbyists themselves might never bear. Indeed impressive groups contract out their work. (It’s not worth getting a $200,000 printer assuming that its main utilized a couple times for every year).
Besides last however not minimum, contracting out permits you to study and explore different avenues regarding the engineering, with small hazard appended. You’ll get an improved feeling about the innovation’s restrictions, diverse materials and other processing exchange-offs. It is less than $1000 to own a 3d printer it depends upon the company that delivers you. You should be careful in analyzing the competitors so that you can get best cheap 3d printers to make your dreams come true.
While 3D printing for mobile device development is nothing new Nokia are embracing the growing consumer interest in 3D printing technology with the Lumia 820 3D printing community.
A simple concept the 3D printing community will allow users replace the removable mobile shell with a range of Nokia made casings capable of enhancing user experience, from special ruggedized shells – for those demanding a more robust mobile casing to shells adding a wireless charging capability allowing chatterboxes to talk for longer.
Obama’s announcement regarding 3D printer
Let’s get straight into what The United States of American President spoke regarding 3D printers
“I’m pleased that we are taking steps to strengthen American manufacturing by launching a new manufacturing institute in Ohio,” said President Obama. “This institute will help make sure that the manufacturing jobs of tomorrow take root not in places like China or India, but right here in the United States of America. That’s how we’ll put more people back to work and build an economy that lasts.”
The Obama Administration is investing almost $30 million into the new ‘National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute’ that will produce a mass of 3d printers and will create a huge job affairs.
Looks like American president has taken some steps to resolve the unemployment and inflation that take place in his country this might be a bit shock to countries like India and china as their income growth may get disturbed because there are lot of It companies which are owned by US people are located in India and china.
Due to the announcement there is a sudden change in sales for 3D printers and here’s the details of top companies that produces various 3D printer.
3D printing stocks has suddenly increased on Wednesday morning after President Obama spoke about regarding the 3D printer in his State of the Union late Tuesday. ExOne Co.(US:XONE) offers were up more than 6%, 3D Systems Corp.(US:DDD) imparts were up more than 3% and Stratasys Ltd.(US:SSYS) imparts were up 2%. This is the impact of Obama’s speech, if obama start to give such speech regularly regarding 3D printers definitely there will be more increase printers sale and production.
Its popularity has been increasing day by day comparing before 2 years and now there is a considerable increase in sales in 3D printers says source.
