MakerBot released winners list of 3D printing auxiliary equipment challenge

MakerBot released winners list of 3D printing auxiliary equipment challenge

A few months ago, a well-known 3D  printing content sharing site Thingiverse held a challenge cup game, entries are mainly using 3D printing technology for design of auxiliary tool for the disabled.Eventually, Tobias Wirtl won the champion, and his work on mouth operation of 3D printing is a computer mouse;The second, three pieces is a 3D printing  wheelchair and a small 3D printing equipment.65

3D printing technology is magical, the cheap 3D pen is a typical representative.
Wirtl said: “now a lot of disabled people enjoy less than emerging science and technology, I think we should let them have access to the contemporary media, especially Internet. That’s why I created this work of such devices .On the market they are usually a few hundred dollars, and I work as a whole it costs just around $20.”66

According to 3D Tiger to understand, this 3D printing on the mouse has a small mouth, a joystick, the user can move through the mouth of small amplitude control a computer cursor.Sucking is equivalent to clicking left key, inward outward blowing is equivalent to a right-click.In addition, it is composed of the Arduino Pro Micro drive, suitable for most computer USB interface.Wirtl Suggestions in the process of printing set resolution of 0.2 mm, filling rate is 20%.
