Sound Designer Develops 3D Printed Modular Synthesizer: All Open Source, Open Hardware

Sound Designer Develops 3D Printed Modular Synthesizer: All Open Source, Open Hardware

Musician and sound designer José Luis González Castro has a lot of experience with video game sound effects and creation, which paved the way for his current project. Castro is working to develop an 8-bit, reprogrammable modular synthesizer, which he dubbed the miniMO, that’s almost entirely 3D printed. Every piece of the synthesizer, even the breadboard, was […]

3D Printing Makes Pogo Jig Design Easier and More Effective

A pogo jig sounds way more fun than it actually is. It’s not a dance done upon a pogo stick, sadly, but it is still kind of cool, especially in the case of a project recently documented in the Hacker Noon blog. In another case of “I bet it never even crossed your mind to […]

Diyouware Initiative Invents New Resin Deposition Modeling 3D Printing Method

Diyouware Initiative Invents New Resin Deposition Modeling 3D Printing Method

It’s been a couple of years since we’ve heard from the Diyouware initiative, which was started by two brothers in Madrid with a passion for robotics, design, electronics, software development, and mechatronics. The two were inspired by the RepRap 3D printer revolution, and built DiyouPCB, an open source, 3D printed PCB 3D printer, in early […]

PinJig Makes Soldering PCBs a Breeze

PinJig Makes Soldering PCBs a Breeze

One of the things I love about 3D printing is how it’s empowering makers and inventors to come up with new devices that would have been prohibitively expensive to prototype and develop otherwise. Many of these new products would not have seen the light of day, and in fact sometimes the production models are 3D […]

Making PCBs--And Fast! University of Waterloo Grads Win Dyson Award for Voltera V-One, Inspired by 3D Printer

It’s the future. It’s fast. And it’s all about power, quite literally. The Voltera V-One, created by a group of graduate students from the University of Waterloo, Canada shows the evolution of 3D printing–and the subsequent fabrication of electronics–quite succinctly. At first it was like virtual magic, observing a digital file come to life, layer […]

3D Printed PCB Drill Press Allows Those on a Budget to Make Tools

If we get any better at designing the tools we need to build 3D printers and having those tools 3D printed, pretty soon we won’t need to do much more than leave the 3D printers alone and they will be able to create themselves. Of course, if you’ve seen any of the AI movies ever made […]

Italian Police Officer 3D Prints Amazing PCB Workstation with Articulated Arms

If you have any experience working with printed circuit boards (PCBs), then you know how utterly frustrating things can get. Sometimes technicians wish that they could have eight arms just like an octopus, in order to hold everything in place while placing or analyzing specific electronic components. Unfortunately we are all humans, and we only […]

3D Print Multi-Layer Circuit Boards with the Nano Dimension Dragonfly 2020 3D Printer

If an industry could have hopes and dreams, the 3D Printing Industry would have a pretty long list of them. For years it was an industry based on promise not on performance, on the idea that it could lead to something revolutionary, but until we get there, have this plastic Yoda head! We’ve been promised […]

Voltera V-One 3D Circuit Board Printer Launches on Kickstarter

The emergence of 3D printing has changed the way thousands of companies and individuals look at prototyping. Instead of outsourcing a project to be prototyped, then having to wait weeks or even months for the part to be produced, 3D printers have managed to allow individuals and small businesses to bring the prototyping process in-house. When […]
