Mobile Eco 3D Printing Station – 3D Printing Industry

3d printing fabraft bike

The Mobile Fab device is a plastic recycler that, using a series of pumps, tubes and wires, grinds No.5 plastic into a fine powder, which is fed into the 3D printer attached to the front of the bike. Passersby are invited to bring pieces of discarded polypropylene, the only plastic Fabraft can handle for the moment, to their bike. After a couple of hours, processing and printing the material, they’re rewarded with such items as a Fabraft medallion, to be inserted into the spokes of their own bicycles. Best of all, there’s no charge, just plastic.

DiResta: Old Plank – YouTube

Here’s what to do with your old plank this weekend.

(Not to be confused with Old Greg – that is entirely different activity)


I found this old plank at the waters edge under the Brooklyn bridge few years ago. In this video i simply add 1″x1″ steel legs, TIG welded together by my GF Taylor. The texture of the drift wood was too nice to do any thing but showcase it. I did remove the nails. enjoy and thank you.

Made in Oakland: How one city turned into an art and maker mecca | TechHive

If you are going to read one article referenced by us please, please, go read this one on Makers. It is more than inspiring.

Thank you Kevin Lee for writing it.

And thank you Ruth Trocolli of the District of Columbia Historic Preservation Office for bringing it to our attention (see Archaeologists are cool – right?).

“A lot of the art gets built for the love and the challenge,” Michael Snook, the founder of this 65,000 square-foot maker space, told TechHive. And as it turns out, NIMBY is just a small part of a large and storied maker scene that dates back to the 1960s and, surprisingly, has managed to stay a well-kept secret.

A confluence of factors have driven Oakland’s maker renaissance. The city has plenty of large industrial spaces that are perfect for makers to erect so many of the massive projects found here.
