A Week at Structur3D – @RobotGrrl Shares Discov3ry Experiences [Vlog]

This past week, we had the pleasuring of hosting @RobotGrrl at our E3 lab while she was here in Kitchener.

'Extrude, Experiment, Explore' doesn’t even begin to crack what she accomplished this week. Take a look at her vlog:

For more information about Erin’s work, follow her on Twitter (@RobotGrrl), or visit her latest project, RobotMissions.org. If you want to check out the Python Script she used, you can access it here. Note that this is an experimental script. It directly modifies the gcode, so caution is needed as some commands may be different for your printer.

We will be following your work, @RobotGrrl! Can’t wait to see what you print next.

Technical Details of Printing with Off-the-Shelf Silicone

Technical Details of Printing with Off-the-Shelf Silicone

We at Structur3D Printing realize that silicone is one of the most popular materials our customers want to print. In fact, we have been printing with silicone a lot as well. For this case study we selected a silicone material and a geometry to provide all our case study data. The off-the-shelf silicone material we have chosen is the one we have had the most success with.

Survey Results: Which Pastes People are Most Excited About and Weekly Production Update #7

This update is jam packed with images and info. Enjoy!

I've been looking forward to digging into the survey responses for a while now. The biggest question on my mind was, "What pastes are people excited about 3D printing with?"

The most interesting question was definitely "What Types Of Materials Do You Intend To Print With Using The Discov3ry Paste Extruder"?

Here's what we found out when we looked at the responses:

(Feel free to share that photo wherever you like to go to chat about 3D printing)

More discussion (and pictures) about the data can be found on our blog.
