Dutch Design Week 2

A 3D printer in action, printing an object. The substrate is in a form of clay-like consistency. As it is deposited, it solidifies and takes the shape as fed into the printer by a computer. The shot below shows a stepper motor which moves a carriage acurately into position. The nozzle is mounted on this moving carriage. Stepper motors can be controlled to a fine resolution, meaning each layer deposited can be as thin as a tenth of a millimeter. The print bed is stationary, so as the printing progresses, the motor-carriage asembly keeps moving upwards.

that's ultra cool
Ayush Basu: I am glad you liked it, Elaine.
I always wonder when these things will become household appliances?
Ayush Basu: Well some of the lower end varieties are now in the range of 3K dollars, which is not peanuts but cheaper than what they were, Michael.
Oh my goodness - that's just amazing! Great photo's, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you for your kind comments, Elizabeth.

Great close-ups of a rapidly developing technology, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I was a bit challenged by the light but I got some usable shots, Ray. You are too kind.
It would be a blast to have a 3D printer. A little too much money for me, though.
Ayush Basu: I had a couple at my previous work experience, Michael. It was a terrific experience.
This new technology fascinates me to no end, Ayush. I understand they can even "print" new organs. What will our grandkids be seeing/doing/making in the years to come when the rest of us are dead and buried!
Ayush Basu: Yes! I heard that too about the organs. Brave new world, is it not, Ginnie?

This is the future Ayush, very interesting it is too
Ayush Basu: I agree with you completely, Chris.
Technology at its best!
Ayush Basu: You put it very well, Richard.

This is just mind-boggling, Ayush
Ayush Basu: In principle it is not too complex, but the implementation of it has only been possible in recent years, Lisl. Thank you very much for the visit and comment.
Very cool. I have not seen one in action.
Ayush Basu: It is fascinating to see one in action, Mary.
I love 3d printing but have not yet got the capacity myself Ayush.
Ayush Basu: It certainly is fascinating. At first it appeared that there were certain limitations, Chad, but now they seem to be getting past them too.

A brilliant invention as long as it is only used for the good, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I agree with your sentiments, Pauline.

The invention that may yet revolutionise the world. A lot is made of the machine's IT and electronic prowess. What fascinates me to no end is that not all things can be made of the same material, so some excellent material technology is required to 'print' certain articles, to be of any use.
Ayush Basu: Spot on, Louis. The electricals and software capabilities are mainly what have driven the implementation of this device.
Of all the things that have been invented over recent years this must be one of the most clever.
Ayush Basu: I do agree with you, Brian.
amazing technology... good explanation, too...
Ayush Basu: I do find this technology amazing, Larry.

I'm always amazed at how 3D printing works. This is the first time I'm seen of a shot of it happening. It's very clever.
Ayush Basu: I agree, Alan, it is clever indeed. The principle behind it is actually very simple.
it's difficult to keep up with technology Ayush... this is quite the machine and you have captured the details of it very well....petersmile
Ayush Basu: They are continuing to push the boundaries as to what more can be achieved using 3D printing, Peter. Thank you.

Wonderful image - art found in technology!
Ayush Basu: A very nice way of putting it, Beth, so thank you very much!
Fascinating!
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the exclamation point, CP smile
Interesting isn't it what they might print up? Good info too.
Ayush Basu: They seem to be pushing boundaries every now and then, Jacquelyn.
I guess we can look forward to industrial size machines producing everything this way!
Ayush Basu: If I am not mistaken, industrial 3D printing is there already but whether it is financially feasible or not, that is another discussion, Tom.
3D printing is really cool.
Ayush Basu: I agree with you, LC
