Spar Point Group published an article on bitBox

SparJustin Toland contributing editor at the well-known Spar Point Group travelled to “the charming city” of Aveiro to interview the creators of R2C2.

We talked about the importance of a fast, 32-bit, high-quality motion controller developed specifically for 3D printing and highlighted our commitment to open source so people are able to adapt the controller’s firmware to their own products.

bitBoxWe gave special emphasis to the expansion board that is used for upgrading modules, for communications, wireless and others. “The new users [of 3D printers] will need to interact with our technology via the web and smartphones."

The value of the community and the future of the 3D data capture was also discussed. Whether this meant using smartphones for capturing directly the data or go to the web, select some parts designed by someone on Thingiverse and click and print it"

bitBox supports QuattroTeam at Robótica 2012

Roll Up Robotica 2012

Mário, our newest co-worker and his squad “QuatroTeam” are going to compete in Robótica 2012, the 12th Portuguese robotics open.

Their car, devotedly named Yoshi, uses parts that we helped design and develop. 

To produce Yoshi’s parts we used our 3D printer, equipped with the R2C2 kit.

Build your printer and print your ideas. Your imagination is the limit!

Our partners Luis Coelho (on left) and Pedro Coelho (on right) helped with the photoshoot session. 
Mário (on center) designed the 3D parts and assembled the car.

Another happy customer!

R2C2 Starter kit PLUS

Rui Ribeiro, a Portuguese SW engineer and an active member of our development board, just sent us an email stating that his Prusa came to live!

We are happy to know that his 3D printer is working and proud to see our R2C2 kit as the heart of the RepRap Prusa.

Checkout the video he published on youtube:

R2C2 controlling a CNC machine

Pauljay from South Korea sent us a picture showing his CNC machine and R2C2 board, which he is using for controlling the CNC Smile

Printf.bot prints!! This is the new RepRap 3D Printer

It's missing only a few hours of year 2011 but we were able to put Printf.bot printing before the new year Smile

Printf.bot is our prototype of the new RepRap 3D Printer, designed by Whosa whatsis in OpenSCAD. Whosa whatsis did a great job!

It (Parametric printrbot variant) is inspired by the Printrbot, but is a complete redesign in OpenSCAD to be more robust (without the loose press-fit mountings), but still extremely simple.

This new RepRap 3D Printer have a RepRap wiki page that  we helped to improve. We also shared some photos and this video there.

Seasons greetings

Bob implemented beep code on R2C2 firmware so that GCode files could notify important events. As an example of the possibilities, he created a GCode file to play some seasonal music:

If you are curious about the beep code, here is the first lines of the GCode file that plays on the video:

New RepRap 3D Printer -- Printf.bot "prototype"

Printf.bot is our prototype of the new RepRap 3D Printer, designed by Whosa whatsis in OpenSCAD. Whosa whatsis did a great job!

Here is our video showing R2C2 driving Printf.bot at 150mm/s and 3500mm/s^2 (recorded on 2011.12.25):
