In Other News – 13 May 2015

Makerbot

The future is coming, and I intend to be ready for the apocalypse of 2007. I’m a genius ahead of my time of course, as I’ll be setting up a 3D printing farm to sort all my needs out. Sure, I can easily print out foods, guns and women who can’t leave me, but the real masterstroke here will be when I figure out how to 3D print 3D printers. I’M A GENIUS!

In Other News: Ubisoft says goodbye mostly to last-gen, Final Fantasy goes to the After Years, a day in the life of Koji Igarashi and that new Mad Max film is pretty solid after all.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy shaving my arms so that I could pretend someone else was hugging me.

  1. I want a 3D printer to play with… just to play with, that’s all, then I’ll give it back in working order.

      You can check out the rep rap models (http://reprap.org/) if you’re just wanting to play around you can probably build yourself one (if you’ve every built a pc you can build a printer) for around 5 – 7k depending on a few optional parts like a heated or none heated print bed.

      Micro robotics will sell all the parts needed to make one up https://www.robotics.org.za/

      Just be warned the actual printing of stuff is really not easy and smooth as they media would have people believe lol. I spend about 70% of the time swearing at the things but love them dearly and it’s amazing technology especially to play with on your own time.

      Go check out http://www.thingiverse.com/ and http://www.myminifactory.com, both awesome sites with a ton of useful, cool and free models to print.

    In regards to 3D printing it’s part of what I do for a living and I would recommend staying away from the makerbot replicator 5th gen. The extruders have been giving major issues, and you are slightly locked into using their filaments which is exceptionally expensive.

    Amazing performance but not for the price.

    Rather buy a reprap kit or a wahno from cad labs. You will save 6 – 7k easily for the same performance.

    Im running an old replicator 4th gen which was a work horse, but looking replacing it soon because spares are becoming a bitch to sort out.
