Sneak peak of what I have on the test bench. Powering my Raspberry Pi running Octoprint with my PSU. I cut up an old motherboard to get the pieces. More info coming soon along with an enclosure I need to 3D Print.
So I’ve been caught up with life outside 3D printing recently, yet have not forgotten about it. Printrbot has also had some great deals going on and I am taking advantage. First, Printrbot posted on their twitter page about a new upgrade they are ready to release. It is a plastic extruder. They decided to […]
It’s been fun learning about the amazing technology of quadcopters the past week or so, and I am nowhere near knowing everything I need to in order to get this project completed. I did want to give a quick update as far as 3D printing is going, along with some issues I am facing with […]
Make magazine not only provides amazing geeky projects, it also takes a lot of time to provide great information about products. Recently they conducted their Digital Fabrication Shootout. This is their fourth year doing this, and this year they expanded their shootout from 3D Printers into the areas of CNC mills, laser cutters, and vinyl […]
Print beds come in many different sizes, are made of different materials, and are used for printing with different materials. When you first get started in 3D printing, you will probably start off printing with PLA. PLA is a thermoplastic created from processing plant products such as corn. More on PLA and ABS in future […]
Hi Everyone. I am finally starting to get the site up and running. 3DPrintingNewb.com will be dedicated to 3D printing for beginners. I will be posting at least 1 to 2 times per week covering subjects such as 3d printers, 3d printing software, cad drawing, prints, and probably a bunch of things I don’t even […]
