BotFactory Tests Out New PCB 3D Printer with DIY Edge Detector Project

BotFactory Tests Out New PCB 3D Printer with DIY Edge Detector Project

Four years ago, Brooklyn-based startup BotFactory successfully crowdfunded its desktop PCB factory, the interestingly named Squink, that lets users 3D print working circuit boards with conductive inks, and even fabricate circuit traces on a variety of substrate materials. After getting a little help from the Shapeways 3D printing service in developing its 3D printed toolhead, the startup closed a $1 […]

UK Students Design and Build Inexpensive 3D Printed Robotic Prosthetic Hand

UK Students Design and Build Inexpensive 3D Printed Robotic Prosthetic Hand

According to the National Health Service (NHS), about 6,000 major limb amputations are carried out in the UK each year. Functional prosthetics can help, but they tend to be costly, and are sometimes only plastic-molded limbs with hooks, which isn’t much help when you’re trying to grip something and pick it up. But advanced technology, […]
