E-nabling The Future Tech Talk Thursday Series – Andreas Bastian on Printed Part Internal Structure. We have shared a number of Andreas’s recent research into desktop 3D printing materials (Mesostructured material, Overmolding, etc.) and appreciate this detailed discussion, especially in this context!

Starting on Thursdays, we’re going to feature guest bloggers from the e-NABLE community to share technical tips and tricks and discuss various challenges e-NABLErs face making hand and other devices. As a quick introduction, my name is Andreas Bastian and I have been an e-NABLE member since October 2013.  By day I’m a 3D printing research scientist at Autodesk’s Pier 9 facility where I shoot lasers and explore new 3D printing processes. By night I work on designing new hands and processes for e-NABLE.

3D printing is one of the core technologies that lets e-NABLE do what it does.  As a fabrication process, it has a lot of capabilities that traditional tools have not.  3D printers can build objects that have internal structure, interlocking parts, and traditionally difficult shapes.  But when rubber meets the road, 3D printer operators are often faced with a wide variety of practical parameters when running their machines.

Today we’ll talk about some of the machine settings that affect print strength and quality….

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here:
