Traveled to Fallbrook, CA near San Diego and met Frank Golbeck and his friends. Great group and lots of interest in OSE.

Frank is a huge fan and we discovered he is also a friend of Scott Murray. Introduced us to the maker community in Fallbrook. Very exciting. See Chris' log.

Day Two of 3D Printer World Expo in Burbank, CA

First seminar dealt with Patent issues and IP. Interesting but not a concern for us right now.

Next What's Next in 3D Printing

Interesting info from Johann Rocholl and Terrance Tam from Open Beam - great innovations from Open Source companies

http://3dprinterplans.info/tag/johann-rocholl/

Delta Robot style - easier to manufacture/bigger build volume for footprint - Great workshop opportunity for the future.

referenced good site: http://open3dp.me.washington.edu/

Also discussed more on Resin printers

3D Printer Materials

Another great seminar by Lars and his associate Taylor. Another great element for our workshops

see Google Doc - 3D Printer Critical Path Document

https://docs.google.com/a/opensourceecology.org/document/d/1vvvdV7kUsSHBIHs_iPzeQPUZIlDAS1S1MyZ5CkGj1qA/edit


3D Printer Troubleshooting

Lars again. Another great session and appropriate for our workshops. See google doc

Moved on to Resin troubleshooting. This is another possible workshop for us but they are more expensive right now and not as many OS options.


Crowdfunding

Astounding results with Kickstarter campaigns for 3D printers. i.e. Goal 31,000 Funding 1.2million -- Goal 49,000 Funding 650,000. However these successes have lead to great difficulty in delivery all the promised machines. Sourcing parts, manufacturing and especially shipping have turned into very challenging and expensive issues.

Also, support is hard as the focus is on manufacturing and the support infrastructure not ready.

Friday Jan 31, 2014

Day One of 3D Printer World Expo in Burbank, CA - Attended excellent seminars

Grant Writing for 3D Printer Funding

Debby Kurti or Windy Ridge Innovations and Joe Scott Afinia

Part of "Education Track" - Discussion of case studies where organizations (schools) have enlisted the financial support of boards, foundations, volunteers, agencies and 3D printer manufacturers to acquire their equipment.

Key points:

Sell the Story - Why should they care about your request.

Match Story to Funder's Objectives - i.e. Further STEM Education, Serving At Risk Youth

Tell story like it's already happening - "With a 3D Printer can can reach 60 students a day and speed them on their journey to compete in the world's economy."

Crowdfunding - DonorsChoose.org good for teachers

New sources for schools to buy printer - Parents split cost/Odyssey of the Mind/Booster Club (print items for resale)/Split use with Tech Ed Class/Run Prototypes for Small Manufacturers/Afterschool programs/Ask local businesses

Write Grant as if you have already been funded

Bring tangible items and examples to funding meetings

Slides of presentation have more info:

Intro to 3D Printer Hardware

Brook Drumm - Printbot - Open Source - Kits and Assemble. Their Simple model kit just $299

- FDM - Standard filament style - lays down layer upon layer - think "Hot Glue Gun on the end of a Precisely Controlled Robot Arm"

- Resin Printer (SLA) - UV light cures layer of resin. Laser style and DLP style. DLP cures entire layer at once but more expensive. Laser uses Blue-Ray lasers so common and less expensive.

More precise than FDM but messy and expensive ($2-3K).

- SLS - just out of patent. coming soon. SLS involves the use of a high power laser (for example, a carbon dioxide laser) to fuse small particles of plastic, metal (direct metal laser sintering), ceramic, or glass powders into a 3D model.


Intro to Open Source 3D Printer Software

Software for key functions:

Convert 3D Model file into STL (OBJ becoming popular - includes color info) Layout and Positioning in Printer Setting and Slicing - Creating G-Code or Toolpath file Host - sends info to printer

Popular software: SkeinForge - excellent software but complex - "more for Techies" Slic3R - Popular - window/mac/linux - not a Host (AMF - combos files for Dual Extruder model printers) Pronterface - Host software

MOST POPULAR - Repetiere Host - comes with Slic3r inside

Cura very good too

OctoPrint for Raspberry Pi


**Lars Brubaker from MatterHackers spoke - EXCELLENT

Their MATTER CONTROL software went open source this week

It's software that makes printing as easy as the closed source printers.

Uses Slic3R, Cura, and own based on Skeinforge.

Features automatic leveling and auto calibration. Advanced plating.

Spoke to Lars about teaching our seminars. He's interested. Meeting with him on Friday.

https://www.matterhackers.com/

Last seminar of day featured Fuel 3D's scanner. $1500 machine. Looked good. Adds accurate color in geometry. Easy to use.

Thursday Jan 30, 2014

Chris, Emily and I had excellent meetings yesterday in San Diego with Scott Murray and Jerry Miller.

First stop - Meeting in morning with Scott Murray at his farm

Very impressive organic farm using innovative techniques – good model for urban farm. -- AGRO-ECOLOGY WITH INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY is the focus

Farm to table “orders” from restaurants - he's growing crops based on the needs of specific restaurants.

He needs buildings – packing building, office, living space and a house with a view.

Pre-existing foundation possible for a building - was once for a double wide trailer

    • For dealing with the strict California codes we need to look at creating tiny houses built on wheels – Tumbleweed style

http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/

(They also offer workshops... good looking page http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/products/albuquerque/)

Need to look at using steel tubes for structure instead of bricks

He also needs machines to work on sloped terrain... tractor/bulldozer with wheels that change orientation while implements stay level

He's doing interesting experiments with cold tolerant plants etc. for all season farming

Great crops now that were planted in October.

Grafting big...instead of GMO – Turkish techniques

QR codes for rows for plants – App gathers info

OSE opportunity for innovative buildings... and tools that can be used in this setting … mod tools... advice on farming techniques from Scott


Next stop - Science Learning center site - Encinitas, CA

Met with Scott and Jerry Miller here.

Site far more developed than last visit. $2 million dollars of development and state approval the school now in place.

Focus is on STEM learning -- Inspiring minds of all ages. (NOTE: For every farmer who is 25 years old, there a five who are 75 years old!)

Wide driveway and cul de sac traffic circle where a water tower/aviary will be built

4 classrooms with decks in between – decks good for outdoor tables. - Temporary style buildings but fine for all our needs.

Good power and IT in place

Nice bathroom facility adjoining.

Science Learning Center could be excellent location for our first 3D Printer Workshop. Also, we may be able to dovetail the workshop with speaking engagements for Marcin at the surrounding Universities.

Surrounded by 10 acres of land for urban farming and greenhouses. Plans include a farm store and other amenities.

We discussed future ideas for possible OSE Workshop/Education Center on the site...more to come on that. Scott has grant writers who can help put this together.


Website discussions

We also had great discussions about the new website based on what we discovered. Definitely want to focus on BUILD YOURSELF for the Workshops and Machines and TRUE FREEDOM ONE DAY for more of the underlying philosophy and vision.


Wednesday Jan 29, 2014

Chris Arrived. Great discussions on everything from details of workshops to larger philosophy questions. Some important discussion points (in no particular order):

Nature and "promise" of experimental workshops Necessary infrastructure and tools for workshops. Positioning to the world of workshops - open source etc. DPV's in the new model San Diego connectivity for workshops and builds

Driving with Emily Aiken to San Diego this morning for meetings with Scott and Jerry.

Tuesday Jan 28, 2014

Further San Diego planning. Communication with Jerry Miller, Scott Murray's partner: Hi all, I am Scott’s partner in the Encinitas EAT center. I would like to find out a little more about your workshop interests. We are working on a Farm Shed (Work Shop/Storage) facility. (See attached concept drawings). The idea is to use this facility for not only a place to begin building our various farm structures and components but also as a workshop field station. A base of operations so to speak for the general surrounding community. We are partnered with a local architectural firm and are working on multiple projects for the EAT center/farm. If you are interested in investing in this Farm Shed with us, we could explore arranging a series of on-going projects &/or workshops. The building codes in California are quite strict and this project is on State owned public school property, further complicating the process. The reason for using a shipping container Farm Shed is to expedite something on site to work from while permits and other regulatory approvals are being processed. We presented the idea to OSE last year on setting up a makers work shop here. We decided to move forward with this concept and plan to go for State Approval sometime next week. Let me know your thoughts. We may want to reroute your tour so I could be present to discuss real time opportunities at the EAT site. Jerry Miller

Monday Jan 27, 2014

Planning San Diego trip for Thursday. Communication with Scott Murray. Discuss to include workshop opportunities. Hello Robert: I look forward to meeting Chris. I will invite my partner Jerry Miller to join us if he is available. I would suggest that we start at 10:30 at our farm. Then we will move 7 miles to lunch at Ciao which has a fine Italian buffet. Then we can drive to the Encinitas site and tour our school site.

This way you can take the 210 east to the 15 south and exit to the farm 1.2 miles west on Gopher Canyon... at 1319 Tarek Terrace, Vista Ca. We will head west down Gopher Canyon to lunch, which is fast, easy and wonderful... From Ciao it is a 20 minute drive on hwy 78 to hwy 5 south to Encinitas Blvd at 2 miles east of hwy 5 at 499 Quail Gardens Drive, Encinitas, Ca. Then it is a nice afternoon drive up hwy 5 against some of the traffic back to Burbank.

There is a suggested agenda for the day, Let me know what you think? Scott

Thursday Jan 23, 2014

-- Meeting with Yann re: Microcar:

Good meeting. Feels like there are still many technological hurdles. Goal is create the first function prototype... probably to be considered v0.5. Essentially a proof of concept. -- From there it can be quickly improved and hopefully be incorporated in the workshop model. -- Concerns are mechatronic safety, hydraulics/ front suspension and especially the power electronics.

Yann has a fantastic idea of a fully integrate portable power pack for v1.0... but definitely needs professional technical assistance. Idea is essentially a removable "suitcase" that includes these electronics. This can be easily removed and transported inside for recharging. This helps so the challenges of infrastructure for charging electric vehicles. He's envisioning a magnetic connection for easy portability. At v1.0 then hopefully move into the Kit form... also at this point he has excellent plans for crowd funding, somewhat along the line of TrueFans... and avoid needing Kickstarter or Indigogo.

-- Planning with Chris. Added second San Diego trip to his visit to see Frank Golbeck.

-- Revised answers from Jeff Moe:

• I'd like to get a handle on the capabilities of the KIT, as compared to the new TAZ 3. You had mentioned it doesn't have the digital display. Does it have untethered printing? Does it compare to he earlier TAZ, such as the version reviewed in the Make Magazine 3D Printer edition (attached)

The kit at this point doesn't fully exist, outside of the BOM and we've ordered parts for maybe 200 kits or so. We left out what we thought would save significant money, that wasn't necessary to have a good printer. This was why the GLCD was left out. It can also be added separately. Or, we could just include it in the kit, if you think it should really be in there. The kit is a new deal for us, so feedback welcome. Let us know what you want to see and we'll do what we can to make it happen.

• Can the “missing” elements be added to the Kit if the customer wants the upgrade?

This would be the goal. It is difficult to maintain full stock of all the parts though. It is all fully open though, as you've seen, so parts can be sourced from other vendors as well. Plus, since it is open, alternative parts can be easily used.

• In my notes, I had the Kit price as $638. Is that correct? If the upgrades are possible, how much would that add?

I don't have a final bom cost. But that is probably in the ball park. The kit will be under $1k even with bells/whistles added, I'm pretty sure. Note, we also need to include things like boxing & bagging, etc. and we do really good packaging, but it costs…

• Is end of March still look like a likely timeframe for the Kits to be ready?

Yes. We should be able to hit that. But you have to let us know what kind of volume you are talking here.

• Big Question – It would be fantastic to come learn it, but for the first Workshops we would love to have a Lulzbot person be there as an expert instructor. Would it be possible to hire you, or one of your associates to join us? We're envisioning about 2 1/2 days for the workshops. We'd like to have the attendees build and then be able to troubleshoot the printer. We'll also include material on modeling, print software etc. — We hope to customize the workshops based on where we are going.

Probably not me, though it would be nice. Where/when would the workshop take place (date/address)? We may be able to do something. Do you have equipment etc to make it into good videos?

• It looks like we may be getting a lot of interest from college architecture programs. Are there any special “selling points” you see for that audience?

The TAZ can print big in materials like Laybrick. That's nice for architects. I can see why they are interested--making models of all sizes is awesome. I printed a teeny to giant and every step in between of the Vanderbilt Mansion, they look really cool. You can paint ABS easily with acrylics and whatnot, drill it, work it, etc. Plus lots of materials are available, even wood. Magic machine wooooo

• MOST IMPORTANT. We want to be sure we design this so it's advantageous to you. Please think about how our Workshop programs can best benefit you.

By making clear documentation, including videos would be ideal. Something that you can really watch on the Internet, not just youtube shots. More like a structured program, and less like a howto. Then finding out wtf people are doing with their machines that is cool/interesting and we can help promote that, particularly if they are free/open system folks. Just grow the ecosystem.

We don't have any projection yet, but we're having some meeting now that may give us more info.

Ok.

I think that's it, until I think of a bunch more…

Thanks so much and I'm happy to call you or others if that's easier for you than writing this out.

No problem. Sry it took so long to get to it though. Feel free to ask any other questions.

Good response to my questions from Jeff Moe:

• I'd like to get a handle on the capabilities of the KIT, as compared to the new TAZ 3. You had mentioned it doesn't have the digital display. Does it have untethered printing? Does it compare to he earlier TAZ, such as the version reviewed in the Make Magazine 3D Printer edition (attached)

It is basically the same thing, except we excluded the GLCD panel. That can be added later, no problem. The panel also has the SDCard, so it would need to be connected to a computer to print. That said, we can change the kit to include the LCD too, if it is really needed. We just thought kit people would try to save as much as possible and that can add $100 or something.

• Can the “missing” elements be added to the Kit if the customer wants the upgrade?

Yes.

• In my notes, I had the Kit price as $638. Is that correct? If the upgrades are possible, how much would that add?

That sounds ballpark about right. We'll see if we can do better.

• Is end of March still look like a likely timeframe for the Kits to be ready?

Yes.

• Big Question – It would be fantastic to come learn it, but for the first Workshops we would love to have a Lulzbot person be there as an expert instructor. Would it be possible to hire you, or one of your associates to join us? We're envisioning about 2 1/2 days for the workshops. We'd like to have the attendees build and then be able to troubleshoot the printer. We'll also include material on modeling, print software etc. — We hope to customize the workshops based on where we are going.

That sounds interesting, but we probably won't have the manpower to go send you someone. You are more than welcome to come visit here.

• It looks like we may be getting a lot of interest from college architecture programs. Are there any special “selling points” you see for that audience?

Scale. :) The material “laybrick” (which we sell) is a good architecture material.


More with Dan Benamy this morning on Wiki organization, especially "Get Involved" section. --- Also discussed A/B testing for what we put up on the site... very interesting.

Thursday January 16, 2014

Exciting phone meeting with Scott Murray and Emily Aiken about San Diego workshops. Scott's school campus in Encinitas is ready and approved by State (less than 2 hours south of LA...near 5 Freeway). His goal is to "inspire minds across all ages" -- Wants to combine Agro-Ecology with Innovation Technology. -- Has 4 classrooms, restrooms, plenty of land... not fancy... I'll be visiting on January 30. - Great access to students. Also discussed other OSE collaborations. More to come.

Meeting with Dan Benamy. Tested BOM Generator for Dozuki guides. Working very well! -- also discussed his ideas for Wiki cleanup and his templates he's created. Excellent work. --- Further meeting today.


Wednesday January 15, 2014

Discussions with Chris about his meetings at Ball State. It looks like including 3D printing workshops for them would be viable. Architecture department very interested. - Discussed Chris coming to the 3D Printer Expo as well.
