We finally solved the issue of the jumping print head that was impacting several of our 3d printers. We would consistently get solid prints in the morning or late afternoon, but midday would often see prints start to shift horizontally or vertically as the bot moved to higher levels on the z-axis. After experimenting with dozens of fixes — from cleaned power sources to shorter USB cables...

Odd Rostock Printer Behavior
After building a number of Prusa and MendelMax 3d printers, we recently decided to make a Rostock delta robot printer. While the Rostock design is quite cool, we were experiencing what appeared to be a weird firmware bug with the machine. The Rostock would home correctly, with top+bottom or top only endstops, but as soon as it finished homing the print head would shoot for the right-rear corner...

California-based Intellectual Ventures was established by former Microsoft technology boss Nathan Mhyrvold. It now owns and controls about 40,000 technology patents. I believe that the US patent system is broken and this company is only making it worse.
Could 3D printing really shift the trade balance? →
In my opinion it might make a small shift to the trade balance, but we won’t see that change happen anytime soon. Plus, the printers will probably be made overseas eventually!

There was a time when we couldn’t imagine a reason why anyone would need a computer at home. With the endless possibilities of this industry, I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss home manufacturing. In the short term, I think that cloud manufacturing will lead the industry. However, I that think if the price of printers begin to decrease the cost of entry for the home manufacturer will...

I have ordered some of the wood filament and am excited to see how it prints. It sounds like it is more like working with PLA than actual wood. Still, it will be interesting to see what types of materials will be printable in the future.
