Day two of the Peachy 3D Printer Scandal

I’m appreciating this take on this particular scandal from Makers Muse: Summarizing my thoughts almost exactly–with the exception that I’m somewhat lacking in sympathy for Rylan Grayston at this point. If his story is true then he has been victimized by his partner David Boe. Regardless of his story, the fact remains that Peachy burned […]

Peachy Printer Crowdfunding Fraud Erupts

Billed as the first $100 3D printer and scanner, it was almost too good to be true. Now, it’s a million dollar scandal that is rocking Kickstarter and Indiegogo. After two years of delays past promised shipping and nebulous updates of continuing development, Peachy Printer project head Rylan Grayston has come forward to present backers […]

Steadcraft Grand Opening Sale!

This is not a Kickstarter! This is an old-fashioned Grand Opening Sale! I have decided that for now the best crowdfunding for this business is organic growth. Save 25% at our online store from now until May 27th. Just use the code “grand opening” at checkout and get free shipping too! Purchasing our vintage-inspired jewelry is […]

Maliq & The Crucible’s Apprentice Program

I was asked last summer if I was interested in being a mentor in the Crucible’s emerging apprentice program. I agreed and have since been fostering four, smart, and talented young people as they develop a skill set designed to … Continue reading

Crowd Captured 3D Models

The beauty of photogrammetry is the ability to create a 3D model from ordinary photographs. This opens up great opportunity to people who could use such models for 3D printing or digital media but don’t know how to design with CAD. How could this be better? Well, you don’t even have to take the photos yourself. […]

Ultra-Fast Resin Printing

Faster resin printers are a hotspot for venture capital right now. The primary stumbling block in this technology is the layer separation mechanism. These printers all pull a model out of a vat of resin “Terminator” style, using an upside down build platform and a light source beneath the bottom of the transparent resin vat. […]

Resin Printers: Established Standouts

Fast, and unsurpassed for high resolution detail, accuracy, and surface finish, SLA and DLP based resin printing is proven technology that has taken a solid foothold in the prosumer 3D printing market. There are fewer entries here than the overladen FFF/FDM field for several reasons, but it can still be difficult to separate the wheat from […]
