Case prototyping

[Deviant Ollam], lockpicker and beverage cooling contest host, was recently in Vienna, presumably for DeepSec. While there, he stopped by the Metalab hackerspace and checked out their RepRap rapid prototyping machine. You can see video of his visit above. He had them construct a custom fitted cover for the flash of his point and shoot camera. That’s what we love about rapid prototyping. Many of the projects we cover here solve a particular problem, but would never be considered commercially viable enough to put into production. With the availability of rapid prototyping increasing, hackers can start moving toward producing even more complex objects specific to their needs with a finish closer to commercial products.

    i’m still freaked out by the accuracy of that thing, considering the fact it’s hot glue. just awesome.

  2. Marius says:

    Although the “hot glue” analogy is often used to describe the concept of rapid prototyping, this is not actually hot glue, but ABS plastic.

    Wow that looked like great fun!

    I love the sample box too! Wow, great examples of what it can do!

  4. Luke says:

    Is this really a ‘reprap’? This seems to produce much better results than other repraps, and the hardware is obviously of a different design.

  5. bazacko says:

    Is that Ah-nold?

    “Rapid” prototyping?
    LOL, good it was such a small part, or he would have to have extended his visit for a few days ;-)

    But cool it is.

  7. yurijm says:

    Some info:

    o The CAD software is Art of Illusion (http://artofillusion.org).
    o The machine is a RepRap extruder head mounted on a CNC machine.
    o The printing quality of current RepRaps should be comparable. Building one is our next step.
    o The machine, including the CNC, is controlled using only the RepRap software. In the video, I think it runs off the Mac.
    o It’s still a bit slow. Speed is a secondary goal atm.
    o More info about this machine can be found on http://reprap.soup.io
