time-lapse Ultimaker 2

A 3d printed cup made on our Ultimaker 2 in the ColorFabb print lab with an experimental grade of XT filament.

Timelapse interval was set at 10 sec, unfortunately the battery was empty and didn’t finish the complete build. More time-lapse videos will follow from various 3d printers.

Buttery, creamy and super smooth. This is our base material for all of our PLA/PHA filaments. It’s a great neutral color which is just a slight bit translucent, which helps hide the layer definition.

Hacking Ikea Lampan with 3D printed parts

At the Eindhoven Mini Maker Faire design studio Van Alles Wat Ontwerp presented a pretty clever way of personalizing the Ikea Lampan lampshade. An interactive installation allowed users to draw their own lampshade designs on a piece of paper, while simultaneously a 3d model is being rendered on a screen! We’ve seen children making beautiful 3d designs by simply drawing on a pieve of paper, amazing!

All the designs are posted on thingiverse.

The lampshades were 3d printed with various colorFabb PLA/PHA filament. WoodFill proved to be especially pretty with little light behind it.

Scanned with Skanect software, retouched with z-brush and finally 3d printed with the Makerbot Replicator 2 using our woodFill filament.

BaliBoy – part 2

Scanning BaliBoy was good fun and easy enough. Just make sure to take time setting up your scanning equipment and make sure there’s enough room to walk around the object while scanning. Once the BaliBoy was scanned I was eager to get it printing on the Makerbot. Using our woodFill profiles for Makerbot Makerware our first copy of BaliBoy (10cm tall) was done in about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Generating 3d models is quite time consuming and requires in some cases expert knowledge of specific 3d modeling software. It’s definitely fun to learn about the various types of 3d modeling software, but you could also get into 3d scanning.

How to print with woodFill filament

Our all new woodFill material is available in two variations, fine and coarse. Both filaments are about 70% colorfabb PLA and 30% woodfibre, this means that in general you’ll need to print this material at PLA temperatures. To help you along with fine tuning your machine for woodFill here is our process of calibrating the Ultimaker Original, Ultimaker 2 and Makerbot Replicator 2.

Launch of the Innofabriek

We presented colorfabb at the launching event of the brand new Innofabriek in Reuver the Netherlands. Located in one of the old Jalema factories the Innofabriek still shows some of it’s industrial history. The main workplace looks great and is no doubt one of the most inspiring workplaces you could wish for. We wish Joan Westendorff the best of luck with his new start-up the Innofabriek.
