New York magazine has a roundup of some of the best designs out there, including a few 3D printers for the Raspberry Pi and Arduino, a few for the Zynq SoC and a few to build yourself using parts you already own.
But the biggest news story of the day isn’t a new gadget, it’s a new 3D printing technology.
It’s called the MeshPrinter, and it can print on any kind of plastic you can think of.
We’ve already seen a mesh printable iPhone case and a 3D printed version of the iPhone’s new display.
The MeshPrinters biggest selling point is its ease of use.
You don’t need to have an industrial design degree to print in a mesh, and the files are all there.
“The mesh printers file format is designed to work on most of the popular consumer 3D modeling software, and there’s a lot of flexibility to the file size, the layers and the dimensions,” MeshPrint’s creator, Ryan McBride, told me.
MeshPrints creators have created a few models that you can print out, and you can see the resulting images on the website.
There are also several tutorials, and McBride says MeshPrint files are available for free, but if you want to make your own, you’ll need to pay $49.99 to get a print.
The best mesh prints aren’t available on Shapeways, but McBride and his team have released a new mesh print that’s also free.
McBride also points out that the Mesh Printer is a fully open source project.
“We’ve made every step of the way completely open, and we can make more files if we get support,” he said.
“It’s a project that’s made by thousands of people and it’s open source.”
If you’re looking for a new printer, though, you may want to check out McBride’s latest tutorial on how to print your own mesh prints.
