Team Meeting

More about how modular design works. Developing teams in different parts of the world. Then extruder, frames DXFs for the 3D printer.

FreeCAD Workflows

12 minute video on FreeCAD based workflows: concept, design, modularity, BOMs, exploded part diagrams, visual bill of materials, fabrication drawings, and more.

D3D updated to build of frame and axes.

  • Emmanouil - source frame; finish frame CAD + Integration
  • Richard - recruit a Blender person -
  • Cedric -
  • Jean-Baptiste - source frame; infographic - start with D3D Page - especially parts breakdown. 1 part count frame, magnetic, tool head magnetic, completely modular scalable, Cat 5 wiring, minimum parts count high performance - no moving bed; enclosable structure - warm inside; Construction Set Approach - huge; design for social production XM - stadium scale build.
  • Jonathan - build ongoing
  • Jose Urra - BOM for D3D; updating extruder files
  • Marcin - source frame - do infographic text; electronics
