Dutch Design Week 3

If you were impressed by the last post on 3D printing, then this gets better. This is a totally mechanical 3D printer. Meaning, it is not driven by a whole bunch of stepper motors, sensors and control systems. It has a weight driven chain transmission and ratchet-pawl mechanism. Obviously, the resolution of the printing process is not very fine. Any errors are quite easily detected by naked eyes.

It is excellent for illustration, Ayush.

Is that some kind of 2 wing governor on the side?
Ayush Basu: I do not know the answer to your question, Ray. I do not see how the speed could be regulated and this device was not powered on at that moment (you can see that little blob at the nozzle). I am pleased you liked it.
That is amazing machinery.
Ayush Basu: I agree with you, Michael.
3D printing leaves me uncomprehending!! It is an amazing concept
Ayush Basu: I am sure you are already seeing several 3D printed objects around you, Bill.

It is very impressive Ayush - the future becons
Ayush Basu: Nicely expressed, Chris.
way cool!!!
Ayush Basu: It sure is, Elaine. And the shot above shows only a very basic prototype.
Isn't 3D printing just amazing Ayush?
Ayush Basu: I do find it so, Richard.
Funny that this almost looks like porcelain clay is being used.
Ayush Basu: Yes it does, Mary. This is not the real material though. Normal 3D printed parts are of ABS but now they are expanding much more beyond.
It must be fun just to see this being done.
Ayush Basu: It was not working at that point, Brian. But the one in my previous post was.
It is an amazing concept which I didn't really understand until you showed your photographs.
Ayush Basu: Then I am happy to hear that, Cherry. Thank you for the comment.
Pretty incredible - I'm glad they allowed you to take photo's for us!
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, everything at the Dutch Design Week was open for all, Elizabeth.
You mean there's more than one kind of 3D printer, Ayush??? I haven't seen any of them in real life but have seen what they can do. It still blows my mind.
Ayush Basu: In principle, they are all the same. But in implementation, different equipment manufacturers adopt different techniques, Ginnie. I would suppose certain IP restrictions apply as well. And you are right about them being mind blowing.
The concept and possibilities astound me
Ayush Basu: I am right there with you on the "astounding" part, Martin.

Well, you don't want pottery to look too perfect. Then it is a great invention to retain a natural look.
Ayush Basu: The above was an attempt of a hobbyist to come up with an analog version of a 3D printer, Louis. I suppose he/she/they had a challenging but fun time to come up with this.
Wave of the future I think...
Ayush Basu: Well this wave is already here, Larry. Thank you for the comment.
