Filaments for food

We took advantage of the Christmas holidays for dabbling in the kitchen and, of course, having fun with our 3D printer. We made a stencil in HIPS for food with Stick Filament and we prepared an excellent mixture of ginger. At the end of our biscuits are good and beautiful! ;-) ...

Wood pulp

Here in DfC we were never satisfied with filaments containing wood powder: not easy to print and to finish. So we've decided to work, with our Stick Filaments, to obtain a material that can easily be printed and, then, finished with the typical tools of the wood. In this picture we're proud to show you one of the first prints that we achieved with our new Stick Filament containing wood pulp. The result is an object of similar appearance to wood but with the resistance of the plastic! The printing process does not require special devices. The printed object can be sanded, painted and polished as with any wooden material. Finally, we use 40% of wood pulp on this filament, other suppliers use lower percentage...

Scented filaments for 3D printing!

Here we go again, we have a wonderful new material for 3d printing. Who ever printed with ABS (which by the way has to be printed under certain conditions of security) knows the smell of the plastic during the melting process. Furthermore, the plastics do not have a good smell even after the production phase. So we thought: why not make a scented plastic? And we did it. Ladies and gentlemen: we present the filament that smells of vanilla! Your lab will smell good during your prints and, furthermore, the smell will be maintained by the object even after you have printed it. Cool, isn't it? The filament Vanilla, along with other varieties of Stick Filament, is on sale for pre-order at WWW.STICKFILAMENT.COM very soon. Check it out!...

New materials for 3D Printing: Cellulose acetate

Our efforts to look for new materials ad hoc for 3D printing are bringing significant results through the use of Stick Filament. Today we present the Cellulose acetate. It is an ancient material, early versions date from the second half of 800, with rich applications nowadays: eye glasses, for example. We are testing it, obviously in stick format, in order to verify its limits and potential. The first tests are very good: excellent print quality (even without hot bed), no shrinkage and warping, excellent mechanical resistance of the press. And finally, it also can be water-soluble! Not bad...

The upgrading of ourself

Design for Craft supports the National Convention of Spina Bifida organized by AMISB (October 27th, 2013 in Civitanova Marche). Spina bifida is a developmental congenital disorder caused by the incomplete closing of the embryonic neural tube. We want to send a message that we hope will be helpful to many. The increasing diffusion of technology "open" and digital fabrication can give a real contribution to the solution of some problems of the disability, but few are aware of that outside of the maker's world. In this site, we have shown some examples for the upgrading of everyday objects. It's important to know that a new way of thinking and produce useful items and support to our living situations under difficult conditions is now possible thanks to the "ad personam" production of prostheses and aids with new tools, easy, cheap and friendly. Check out this video. This can happen with our lead role in the problem solving process. Nowadays the upgrading can also relate to ourselves and our physical conditions, so we should call it "self upgrading". ...

It’s test time

The tests on Stick Filaments 3mm are on the go, and soon we will have ready version also for 1.75mm. The Styrene, that we're trying for weeks with excellent results, according to the feedbacks from testers and makers that are using different FFF printer models. In general the Styrene ensures low extrusion temperatures, absence of warping and good quality of the final print (similar to that of PLA). Also remember that the Styrene, unlike the ABS, doesn't cause harmful emissions (in the form of Ultra Fine Particels) of hydrogen cyanide. In a short time we'll be testing PLA Stick Filaments, but the great news for everybody are special plastics. We will be able to propose plastics not currently available on the market of the filaments for 3D printing: surely you'll be surprised...

THAT’S ITALIAN

The Rome Maker Faire has ended today. We were part of a relevant event for our country for the first time makers present themselves to the country. 35,000 people have come to know a world that until a few days ago was unknown. We talked until losing his voice, we met so many interesting people, but above all, people were sincerely amazed and surprised. We bring home the certainty that our country has the power, capacity and will to build a great future for us and for our children. Dale Dougherty, promoter of the Maker Faire, wrote "That's Italian". Thanks Dale, we are proud of it. ...
