  • CUR3D – 3D Model Repair Tool [Review]CUR3D – 3D Model Repair Tool [Review]

    We’ve just done a quick test of a new 3D model repair tool, CUR3D Maker Edition. The main screen on CUR3D Maker Edition The need for 3D model repair tools has never been higher, with the number of 3D printers increasing rapidly around the world. 3D printers and their software typically treat poorly formed 3D models in a bad way, often resulting in unpredictable print failures. The root cause of most of the grief is simply the distressingly poor .STL file format standard, whose syntax permits the proper definition of 3D models that are not 3D printable. You can define non-solid 3D models with .STL, and unfortunately many 3D creation systems do just that when you export .STL files. Thus the need for repair tools. There have been a few inexpensive and free options available, but more recently some of the action has moved to the cloud, where it isn’t always free. But there are still some reasonably priced standalone packages to be had. One of them is CUR3D, made by Germany-based RUHRSOURCE, who seem to resell 3D printers as well. The company sells a “Maker Edition” for €50 (USD$58) and a “Full Functionality” version for €9,995 (USD$11,000). There are monthly and annual payment options as well. CUR3D Maker Edition is designed to be extremely easy to use as it is designed for DIY makers, and it is. It does carry a very provocative billing, however: CUR3D is the first real 3D printing prepress, making it the first software on the market to prepare a model of any size, no matter what scale, with any resolution for 3D printing. I cannot believe this is a true statement, as there have been multiple 3D model preparation software options in the past. But let’s press on. CUR3D Maker Edition has the most bizarre method of distribution I have ever encountered in years of 3D printing: it’s through Steam. If you’re not familiar with Steam, it is a massive software distribution and management system focused on games. In Steam you can activate any number of games in your account, and have them delivered to whichever computer you’re using. Software updates are handled properly and you never lose your software license. But it’s for games. Perhaps they were equating Makers with Gamers? That might be the case for some folks, but certainly not for most. I found it quite awkward. Nevertheless, Steam is still a valid method of acquiring software, so we fired up our Steam account and activated CUR3D, which we were promptly met with this message: Steam – Error An error occurred while updating CUR3D Maker Edition (invalid platform) What? Oh! We were running MacOS. Perhaps this is a Windows-only system? Yes, indeed it was, but this is not stated anywhere. We rebooted into Windows and (after installing Steam again) successfully launched CUR3D. I have to say that the interface is ludicrously simple. There is simply nothing to do, other than select the file, pick a “Resolution” and hit “Proceed”. What is this “Resolution”? It’s not really explained, but I suspect that the software uses it as a kind of layer size through which it inspects the 3D model. Your resulting file is then “cropped” to that resolution, so I’d be careful if you have a 3D model with particularly precise structures. And then you export the result. There’s not much else to it. We tested a couple of different 3D models in varying states of correctness, and CUR3D seemed to fix them. It seems best at identifying redundant inner structures and eliminating them, which is helpful. One particularly pathological 3D model we tested, which was unresolvable by other tools at our disposal, actually was 3D printable after treatment by CUR3D. An ugly 2D face scan was mostly corrected with CUR3D to a printable state However, all files we tested seemed to grow very significantly in size once through CUR3D Maker Edition, on average about 10X larger. This could be significant if your slicing program chokes on large sized 3D models. The full version of CUR3D apparently handles gigabyte sized files, so perhaps they aren’t so concerned at that level. But it could be significant at the maker level. It is very unclear what exactly is being fixed, as you just press a couple of buttons. If you look at their web page, however, you can get a list of what is apparently going on behind the scenes: Automatic scaling Automatic thickening of walls Automatic correction of overlapping areas Automatic correction of wrong normals Automatic filling of gaps Automatic adjustment to the print bed Any 3D printer Any resolution Cut slider Wall thickness analyse Batch processing Explorer 3D model preview extension Some of these features are clearly only available in the full function version, such as batch processing and “any 3D printer”. There is no way to specify a 3D printer in the Maker Edition. What is not helpful is the distribution through Steam. The company insists that they are simplifying your workflow. Perhaps that is the case with the full edition, but it is not true with the Maker Edition, as you must fire up Steam before you can even load CUR3D. That’s a big extra step, for which you require security credentials and may suffer delays from updates, etc. It would have been much easier for users if it was distributed in a normal manner. There may be other options for DIY 3D model repair, but I might suggest you could add CUR3D as another repair tool, since most 3D model repair services can fail on peculiar geometries and it is always a good idea to have more options. For the full version, which we have not tested, I suggest you do a very thorough examination through a full trial to determine if the product is for you, simply due to the rather high cost of the tool.

  • Zoetropes Get “4D” with the Incredible 3D Printed 4-Mation PlatformZoetropes Get “4D” with the Incredible 3D Printed 4-Mation Platform

    4-Mation Is A Series of 3D Modular Zoetropes With Swappable Animations Before the introduction of film and movies, pre-animation devices like zoetropes presented a glimpse into the future of moving images. Using a series of paintings or drawings in different phases of animation, a person could paint the illusion of an object (or objects) in movement. The 4-Mation is a modern take on the pre-film animation device, and uses 3D printing to make its animations come to life. Whereas classic zoetropes are in 2D and often lack brilliant colors, 4-Mation allows fully-colored 3D renders to appear as if a cartoon movie came to life. Amazing! The machine comes in three models: one consisting solely of electronic, another which comes with a laser-cut plywood frame, and the final one which uses a machined walnut frame (as seen in the videos). Each model is powered by 24 3-Watt RGB LED strobes and timed by a microcontroller connected to an encoder motor. The zoetrope’s rotation speed, brightness, and color are controlled via a phone app for Android and iOS. Animations, such as the jumping frogs and fish-eating fish, can be downloaded and printed for free. If users get tired of the two animations, they can design their own and play them on the 4-Mation. The project is set to go live on Kickstarter sometime in December—so we’ll be sure to keep you posted when it’s up!

  • Don’t Like the New ‘Notch’ on the iPhone X? There’s an App for ThatDon’t Like the New ‘Notch’ on the iPhone X? There’s an App for That

    It’s not very often—if ever—that a software app is made in response to a mass distaste for a particular hardware feature. And as Apple’s design team has learned time and time again, you can’t please everybody all the time. The most recent example comes from the “notch” in the physical body of the new iPhone X—a necessary feature that houses the phone’s new face-scanning camera and allows for the rest of the screen to bleed to the outermost edges of the device. Truth be told, having an irregular bump in your line of sight can be a bit distracting. Now, even Apple themselves are acknowledging this. The company recently approved a new app called Notch Remover—a simple low-tech app that places a black bar across the top of the screen to remove the irregular form and return the screen back to a traditional rectangle. Created by developer Axiem Systems, the lo-fi utility presents an interesting case study in our increasingly digital world: can software be used to control our perception of industrial design at this scale? What do you think? Leave the “Notch” as-is, or bring on a future of “modifiable” industrial design via software? The post Don’t Like the New ‘Notch’ on the iPhone X?

  • Facing Bankruptcy, TechShop (Sadly) Closes All 14 LocationsFacing Bankruptcy, TechShop (Sadly) Closes All 14 Locations

    When they hit the scene back in 2006, the TechShop business model had everything going for it: a fitness gym-like membership program for the use of manufacturing and other shop equipment. For many urban-dwelling designers or engineers, the wide open shop floors provided a haven to work on weekend projects and use industrial machinery. For educators and parents attempting to introduce children to STEM skills, the friendly facility became an indispensable classroom. Sadly, the business model proved to be unprofitable for those involved, and today, TechShop CEO Jim Newton announced that all TechShop locations are closing immediately. Anybody with existing memberships to the company is instructed to email the trustee handling the bankruptcy process (techshop.trustee@gmail.com). TechShop—like the many projects that came out of it—was the result of multiple iterations across what would become a total of ten US locations and four international locations. From community engagement to educational programs, the locations also functioned as local community centers for discovering laser cutting, 3D printing, and numerous other digital fabrication technologies that have unfolded over the past decade. “I’m very proud of what my team and I did to build TechShop,” says Newton. “I’m very sad that we were not able to make TechShop into a sustainable business. It is my prayer that each of the people we touched will take those little sparks they received while they worked on their dreams at TechShop, and turn them into their own grand experiment.” In total, TechShop provided access to over $1.41 million of high-quality tools and machinery to its users for a membership fee of less than $4 per day. With over 9,000 active members across all of their locations, the company estimates that they engaged over 100,000 individuals since opening. Find out more over at TechShop.

  • Lenovo Launches New Lineup of Impressive Workstations for 3D ProfessionalsLenovo Launches New Lineup of Impressive Workstations for 3D Professionals

    Just in time for Autodesk University this week in Las Vegas, Lenovo announced some welcome new additions to their ThinkStation and ThinkPad product line. In particular, an exciting new mobile workstation offering for 3D professionals on-the-go. The ThinkStation P520 and P250c are desktops for designers, architects, and 3D professionals, while the ThinkPad P52s is the company’s thinnest, lightest and, yes folks, now QUAD-CORE mobile workstation. ThinkStation P520 and P520C Starting with the desktop workstation, both the P520 and P520c feature Intel Xeon W processors—each of which holds up to 18 cores with speeds of up to 4.5GHz running Windows 10 Pro OS. The P520, the more powerful machine, holds up to two NVIDIA Quadro 6000 graphics cards, memory of up to 256GB.up to eight drives and four internal storage bays. The P520c, on the other hand, is for those who desire a more compact, less expansive option, but a good amount of core count, memory and clock-speed. It can hold the NVIDIA Quadro 5000 graphics card, has a memory of up to 128GB, and holds up to six drives and two internal storage bays. Though pricing isn’t available yet, the 520c is more entry/mid-level for CAD professionals, so those interested might find this smaller-but-still-mighty workstation more appealing. Finally, the ThinkPad P52s laptop carries an 8th generation Intel core processor and runs on Windows 10 Pro. Again—the thinnest workstation ever created by the reputable hardware company. “This new, thin and light ThinkPad will benefit any professional that constantly finds themselves on the go – offering raw Intel Core processing and the brand new NVIDIA Quadro P500 graphics, which means fast, on-screen interactivity with dense datasets, simulations, and 2D image manipulation and painting,” says the company. “Whether you’re collaborating in the office, on a job site or with visiting customers, this powerful and lightweight mobile workstation can run CAD applications all day long – offering the fastest, mobile processors and PCIe NVMe up to 1TB.” All the computers feature the Lenovo Performance Tuner (LPT), which lets users fine-tune application usage to speed up specific programs they need. This includes application priority, power management, graphics, management, resource monitoring, among other options. A major plus in all of the new designs is the ability to access files using the 32GB memory before being saved on its more robust 2TB HDD storage. If ever the computers conk out, Lenovo has included a workstation diagnostics tool which can be downloaded onto the desktop or phone which helps troubleshoot the problem. In case the computer itself won’t turn on, the phone app allows the workstation to communicate the problems to the mobile device. Complete specs sheets for the new lineup can be found over on Lenovo’s website: ThinkStation P520, ThinkStation P520c, and ThinkPad P52s The post Lenovo Launches New Lineup of Impressive Workstations for 3D Professionals appeared first on SolidSmack.
