Raspberry Pi Camera Mount with Coolant Hose Camera Fixture

The Raspberry Pi and its camera make a great pair for monitoring 3D prints via Octoprint, but what about actually mounting everything? This novel solution hangs down from a wire shelving unit, allowing you to shift it left and right, and the camera is mounted onto a flexible coolant hose. Easy positioning that stays where its put!

3D printing has the ability to create complex geometrical shapes with the help of 3D software. However, quality monitoring is still a big challenge in additive manufacturing, as many 3D printers do not have a designated system to track and monitor the progress of printing process.

3D-Printed Guns

With the “green light” looming for the 3D printing of guns on July 31, I was contacted by CNN, ABC7 News (San Francisco), and others. In two days, I conducted the following interviews, as well as two others:

I’m hopeful the interviews will help to educate our nation’s policy makers and the less-informed public on the realities of 3D-printed guns. Making it legal is not a good idea on a number of levels. First and foremost, it’s just plain dangerous. In 2013, soon after the idea of plastic 3D-printed guns was introduced, the Australian police 3D-printed two of them. When fired, both exploded. Watch the video.

Second, the 3D printing of guns sidesteps background checks and a registration process, making it impossible to track the firearms and their owners. And third, it is possible to 3D print the parts of a gun and then assemble them on the other side of security, whether it’s at a government office, sports arena, airport, or somewhere else. The individual plastic pieces would not resemble the parts of gun and may not be detected when being scanned.

In the afternoon of July 31, a Seattle judge granted a temporary restraining order to block the release of the files of guns on the Internet. A day earlier, eight states and the District of Columbia sued to block the publication of the files. The bottom line: the 3D printing of guns is a bad idea.

Hailey Dawson Learns About the Technology Behind Her Hand

Hailey Dawson, the eight-year-old sensation from Nevada, is in many ways your typical third grader. She wants to be an actress when she grows up and enjoys swimming, drawing, and of course flossing (a popular new dance move). In other ways, Hailey is not your average third grader. Hailey has always had a dream to throw out the first pitch for every Major League Baseball team. With help from her parents, Stratasys, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Hailey’s dreams are coming true. Using a Stratasys 3D printer, the UNLV team was able to create Hailey a customized prosthetic hand that she could use to throw a baseball. And thanks to United Airlines and all 30 MLB teams, Hailey is on her way to pitch from coast to coast.

Hailey and her mother learning about the Fortus 450

When Hailey was in Minneapolis to throw the first pitch of the Minnesota Twins game she and her mother stopped in at to our offices in Eden Prairie to learn more about the technology that produced her hand. After being interviewed by the local news, Hailey and her mother toured the Stratasys facility to check out some of the 3D printers and awesome products they have made, se even got to press start on a J750 printer. We are excited for Hailey to continue on her #journeyto30.

To follow Hailey through the rest of her journey, follow @haileys_hand on Twitter!

Our 8 Favorite 3D-Printed Sculptures

One of the things we love about 3D printing is how it brings out the creativity in people. It’s a technology with almost limitless design possibilities – and that leads to some pretty fantastic art. Discover what our favorite 3D-printed sculptures are!

Pink 3D-printed deer in Mammoth Resin by Paco Raphael

Pink 3D-printed deer in Mammoth Resin by Paco Raphael

Neon Deer by Paco Raphael

“This animal was so pure, so gentle, so noble. Wouldn’t it be nice if I could put the deer in a dynamic city like New York, expand it and put it in a neon color? This resulted in a series of pop art collages. I have worked it out and made them into five different versions with different deer in different cities,” Paco told us.

With his giant, neon deer, artist Paco Raphael is making full use of the extra-large sizes enabled by Mammoth Resin 3D printing. This Stereolithography material is the best option out there for projects where size really does matter – it’s possible to 3D print in sizes up to 2100 x 700 x 800mm!

Tree sculpture 3D-printed in Polyamide (SLS) | © Se Yoon Park

Light, Darkness and the Tree by Se Yoon Park

“While I work with traditional casting and fabrication methods, I am thankful for the contributions 3D printing has made to my design and process, and believe the combination of these methods is the way forward. Through 3D printing, I was able to manifest my ideas tangibly, and i.materialise has aided me on my journey to capture light and darkness.”

Korean architect Se Yoon Park created a stunning art installation made up of 3D-printed trees. The sculptures imitate the organic structure of trees and consist of many small geometric elements. Se Yoon chose Polyamide (SLS) for its strength, lightness, and porosity, and also gave him the flexibility of dyeing the pieces to explore a variety of artistic surface treatments.

Gyre by Charles-Eric Gogny

“Parkinson’s disease hardly allows me to draw freely, nor model clay, plaster or wax. Fortunately, I can still handle the mouse. Today, with 3D printing, I find pleasure in presenting my “views of the mind” in tangible sculptures! And even better, to concretize shapes that I could not have realized or even imagined before!”

The 3D-printed sculptures by professional French sculptor Charles-Eric Gogny aren’t just amazing representations of the universe and existence, but testify how an artist can continuously evolve his techniques and find a way to keep creating in the face of adversity.

Find more about Charles-Eric’s chimeric sculptures in Bronze and Polyamide (SLS) in this interview with the 3D printing artist.

Still Life with Easel and Sculpture Table by Koenraad Van Daele

Still Life with Easel and Sculpture Table by Koenraad Van Daele

“Digital 3D design has no scale and on the screen there is no gravity. A standing figure with no support falls over but with a hole, it becomes a pendant. A large print of a bracelet can become a sculpture. It’s a playground!”

Belgian 3D artist Koenraad Van Daele gets his inspiration from objects which can be found in an artist’s studio, such as chisels, hammers, an easel, the model, a drawing etc. He loves experimenting with different materials, such as Mammoth Resin, Polyamide (SLS) and Alumide.

Read more about Van Daele’s 3D-printed work in this interview and discover his diverse 3D printed creations, from big sculptures to fascinating pieces of jewelry.

White Rabbit figurine by Danny van Ryswyk

White Rabbit figurine by Danny van Ryswyk

White Rabbit by Danny van Ryswyk

“Half a year ago, I started using 3D printing technology. I create my sculptures in Zbrush, a 3D software specifically used for high-poly sculpting. As an artist, high poly sculpting software allows me to work with digital objects as if they were made of clay, and to sculpt with utmost attention to detail. This gives me unlimited freedom to create whatever I have in mind.”

Acclaimed Amsterdam-based digital painter and sculptor Danny van Ryswyk creates surreal, paranormal sculptures in Polyamide (SLS), which he then paints by hand. His sculptures combine childlike fantasy with the macabre world of nightmares. Read all about his artistic process!

Gathering, a Multicolor 3D-printed sculpture by Eric van Straaten

Gathering, a Multicolor 3D-printed sculpture by Eric van Straaten

Gathering by Eric van Straaten

“I like art in which the technique is a non-invasive accessory to the impression an artwork has on the viewer. I want the viewer to relate to the scenery, and not to the material. Because of the combination of the soft, porcelain-like quality of the material and the life-like impression it gives, multicolor is perfect for this.”

Dutch artist Eric van Straaten has pushed the boundaries of Multicolor 3D printing like no-one else, exploring themes such as innocence, beauty and darkness with his highly detailed sculptures of animals and young girls. Discover the creative process behind his work in this interview!

YARONULK by Nick Ervinck

YARONULK by Nick Ervinck

YARONULK by Nick Ervinck

“I make sculptures that are on the edge of the physical and digital realm in terms of sculpture and architecture. The art of sculpting has evolved through history with the help of technology. Because architects design mainly with computers now, a new type of language is created. In light of this, I see this new world of architecture as a precursor for what will happen in the world of art and sculpture.”

Nick Ervinck uses a combination of traditional modeling and 3D printing to create his abstract sculptures, united by a signature yellow shade. Read more about his sculpture YARONULK, based on the Koekelberg Basilica in Brussels, Belgium, on our blog.
