Home 3D printer
Germany has released a top speed so far by the nano-level micro—Mostfun home 1.0 3D printer. This 3D printer can make micro-structure at the nano-level, with the highest resolution, fast print, print out the object does not exceed the diameter of a human hair.
World’s smallest 3D printer from the Vienna University of technology, developed by a chemist and mechanical engineer. This mini 3D printer that only large size milk boxes, weighing about 3.3 pounds (1.5 kg), cost of 1200 euros (about 11,000 yuan). Compared to other printing technologies, this 3D printer at significantly lower costs. Developers of printers for further experiments in materials and technology, hopes to launch as soon as possible.
The largest 3D printer
Wang Shi Yu sheng research team after more than 10 years of hard work, achievement of a major breakthrough, developed the world’s largest “3D printer”. This “3D” machinable parts long maximum dimensions are up to 1.2 meters wide. In theory, as long as the length and width dimensions of less than 1.2 m parts (height without limits), are available through this machine “prints”. The technology complex manufacturing becomes a simple two-dimensional stack from bottom to top, greatly reducing the complexity of the design and manufacturing, and makes some traditional ways impossible for processing structure things quickly, and complex production of castings from the traditional 3 months to 10 days or so.
Dalian University of technology involved in the development of the max size up to 1.8 m, the world’s largest laser 3D printers into the commissioning phase, which uses “contour scanning” the unique technology, you can make a casting mould for large industrial samples and complex structure. Based on the “outline of failure” three-dimensional laser print method has won two national invention patent. Laser 3D printer only print parts of each layer of the contour lines, contour carbide coated resin sand on failure, again according to conventional methods in 180 ° c furnace to heat printed sand curing and post-treatment stripping, you can get the prototype or mold. This method of printing and processing time is proportional to the surface area of the parts, greatly enhance the efficiency of printing, print speed up 3D printing 5-15 times.
Color 3D printer
May 2013, listing this type of 3D printers new products “ProJet x60″ series. ProJet brand there are four main kinds of modeling method of device. The remaining three are using the light-cured resin type, including surface hardening by laser radiation cured resin types, from the nozzle out light after light-cured resin for hardening type (this type of modelling wax can also be used), to film the light-cured resin type of light irradiation through the mask. High-end models ProJet ProJet 860Pro and 660Pro you can use CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) 4 color binders, implementing more than 6 million color color ProJet 260C ProJet 460Plus uses CMY colors and binders).
On November 23, 2013, Xidian University 3D printing robots on display, this is a remote control robot, the most important function is to take care of the elderly. A lot of mobility for the elderly, have a robot Assistant, as long as the gesture to the camera, the robot can mimic the movements to do the housework.
