Mobo Roboto weekly Friday update for April 15th, 2016

soldier-holding-american-flag-image-41425420

   Let me just start by saying, MAN WHAT A CRAZY (!!!) MONTH(*&!@

 

   So I started the month out with 2 refunds which drained most of my savings so needless to say, it has been a slow month for me(other then the MKS boards selling out quick! MORE COMING SOON W/ PRICE BREAK FOR REPRAP IRC COMMUNITY MEMBERS). I recently decided to try out some new control boards, because I had negative experiences with my previous choice, no biggie…for me anyways. 

   I started a new part-time job as a cashier he locally which will give me some extra funds to put into Mobious Robotics and help not only grow the company, but the community as well. This has unfortunately cut into my time spent working on my new 3D Printer designs and improvements to the sE1x, so I apologize in advance for you new guys who are now having to wait a day or two to get a response from me! I will try my best to communicate my availability days/times and, as always, I will be in the Reprap Google Hangout every Saturday at Noon(pacific) and I highly encourage new sE1X owners to try and make it if you can!

 I just got my order of 300x300mm silicone heaters that actually have a adhesive side as well as the thermistor already built in!!! I will have them up on the site today for you guys to check out…other then that I still have 1 sE1X v1.5(single extruder/ .4/1.75mm Jhead hotend) kit ready to ship and another one well on its way. I’m also still doing the $25.00 referral bonus for those of you who refer someone to Mobious Robotics and they purchase a sE1X, you will get 25 bucks via Paypal! 😀 😀 \o/ \o/


Alright, thats about it for now, I will be doing weekly posts from now on to let you all know whats going on over here at Mobious. As always, thanks for your time and happy printing!!!

“Is 3D printing a viable and affordable alternative to injection molding production?”

Original 3ders article on this debate..

Awesome article pointed out to me by thews on IRC this morning. I thought it was worth sharing as this is a common debate in the reprap community as to which is quicker/better; 3d printing or injection molding?

Thank you thews for sharing this article with us! Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping in!

Phones replacing 3d printers? Interesting concept!

taiwan-tech-phone-3D-printer

“unlike the typical encased 3d printer, the team’s phone-based device prints objects in the open, as long as it’s placed in a dark corner.”

“This isn’t the first mention of a smartphone in the context of 3D printing.Solido3D, an Italian rapid prototyping company, announced a phone-based 3D printer called OLO in October. While the company is yet to reveal how OLO works, Taiwan Tech’s 3D printer, which currently lives in the lab, has been able to create a hollow ball that’s about 100 microns thick.”
