Idag kom vår efterlängtade formsprutningsmaskin för skrivbordet! Den tillverkas av Galomb och vi kommer att använda den för att testa formprutning i plast direkt i gjutformer som skapats med Z Corporations ZPrinter 3D-printer.

This is a binary clock that was built into a 3d-printed case created in Minecraft. It shows the current time in a binary coded decimal format.

The model was exported with the free tool Mineways and printed on a Zprinter 650 3d-printer, with a block size of 125mm^3 (so every block has an edge length of 5mm). After printing, LEDs were glued into the case after filing the openings a bit wider. Then, the LEDs were soldered to form a 4×4 LED matrix, and the matrix was connected to an Arduino board.

A technical description of the setup as well as downloads of the model and the code can be found here: postapocalypticresearchinstitute.wordpress.com/2012/07/18…

Next steps will be to tidy up the wiring and add some buttons to set the clock to the right time (right now this has to be done in the code).

For about two decades, printers have offered computer users a convenient way to print texts and photos. But for a while now, special devices allow to make three-dimensional objects made of plastic, metal, gypsum and even concrete with a printer. First, you use special 3D software to design a digital object on the computer. Then all you have to do is print it!
