Ventura Lambrate

We're showing at Ventura Lambrate in Milan, thought I'd post a few pics. Going to try to duck out and see Salone Satellite tomorrow morning. I'll try to get more photos. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160414/d04695b1cc4d6685fa30952e47ba9cad.jpg http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160414/1d7219ff9fc...

Re: Tesla Model 3, opinions/discussion

Almost put down a deposit last night, but I didn't want to be #200k in line. I don't want a fake grill in front, but I would like... something... there. The surfacing suggests a grill, which makes it looks like it's missing. And it's going to look pants with a front license plate. The interior is re...

Need some local Milan help

So I got into Ventura Lambrate this year (after applying via a link posted at Core), and I'm trying to figure out some shipping logistics. Shipping direct to the venue is too risky, and to save money a lot of stuff needs to be shipped in parts and assembled when we get there. What I'd love is to fin...

Re: Feedback on Modules, adjustable solid wood dressers.

our business plan is over 40 pages long Why? You should be able to explain why and how you're doing this in 1 page. This is simply a protoype and I have spent over $35K just getting this business where it is today Can I ask on what? This may sound self serving on a design forum, but the design of y...

That's great info about the pigment. I replaced (or maybe removed) that one way valve when I was setting up the machine- it was totally blocked.

Re: Help please! (from anyone running a ZCorp Z310)

Gave it a try, but straight Ultracal is totally useless. Even with the saturation maxed out, it just comes out like crumbly powder. Definitely needs something added.

Re: Pier 9 Workshop

They have a really cool artist in residence program where people can make cool stuff on the equipment. Pathfab's Instagram account always has some amazing shots from there:

Peter Stevens on Facebook

If you're not following Peter Stevens (McLaren F1, Lotus Esprit and Elan, Jaguar XJR-15) on Facebook, you should be. Every few weeks he publishes a lengthy blog post full of photos and explanation on design, sketching, past projects, and the industry in general. Really good stuff. https://www.facebo...

Re: Our LooLedge Kickstarter campaign

If you're sufficiently well capitalized to have in-house CNC prototyping facilities, you're sufficiently well capitalized to buy tooling and inventory and shoulder your own risk to bring a product to market. So sick of Kickstarter.

Re: Help please! (from anyone running a ZCorp Z310)

Getting there. Left this in the bed overnight and a lot of binder bled into the surrounding powder. Had to depowder it with a 100psi air gun, but the part mostly held together. I think less saturation and pulling it out right away then baking will be better. Apparently you can retrofit the heater to...

Cool, post some pics. I would love to try some casting. Ran a sawdust print today to test out a new adhesive, looks promising.

Re: Help please! (from anyone running a ZCorp Z310)

The magic ingredient the purpose sold 3D powder has seems to be PVA as far as I can tell but I have heard conflicting information if this is polyvinyl alcohol or polyvinyl acetate. Polyvinyl acetate is not water soluble, it's most likely polyvinyl alcohol, which is. My print head reject rate is pre...

Re: Help please! (from anyone running a ZCorp Z310)

Despite what the troubleshooting guide says, looks like my error was indeed a print head. What are the plans for when they go obsolete? Seems like the reliability of the old stock is pretty poor already.

Re: Help please! (from anyone running a ZCorp Z310)

The book suggests that error code is either the pogo card or ribbon cable. I have a new print head on the way, I'll try that first, then a ribbon cable (only $140! :x ). The material is sawdust and a couple water-activated binders (still playing with the mix). I actually went to the grocery store an...
