RS PRO 3D entry - Marcel
Thanks for making this contest, 3D printing is a hot topic right now and I see huge potential in this technology.
1) My plan for my first 3D printed project.
After learning 3D imaging drawing and be more familiar with the DesignSpark Mechanical drawing tool I will create a 3D printed Rubiks Cube. The cubes are connected with magnets. The centre core will have strong neodymium magnets, while the outside has smaller neodymium magnets. This cube contains 27 cubes, with 4 different designs of cubes (for the different placement of magnets).
Other projects will be cases for my Arduino/Raspberry Pi boards and projects.
2) DesignSpark Mechanical image
See attached, a first drawing of the Rubiks Cube's parts.
3) Coolest 3D printing application
At the Maker Faire Bay Area (San Francisco) I saw a 3D printer that prints products with clay. It printed containers, vases, jars and pots. Attached is an image of the product I made at this event. This product just had his Kickstarter project, what was successfully founded. It was really cool to see something printed that isn't plastic.
