  • This looks very interesting, and very cool! :)

  • I really like inverted delta layouts. They’re super sturdy, and allow arbitrarily heavy end-effectors, since you move the work-piece, not the end effector…

    A group of students published a paper last year using a rig like this, moving a piece of firebrick with a grounded steel plate on top, and a mig welder as the hot-end to 3-d print steel.

  • This is definitely a course that has my interest. Unfortunately I’m on a long work trip and won’t return until Friday of that week.

    I sure hope I can grab some notes down the road.

  • @Jacob-S. I’ve also learned of interesting techniques to bind a ceramic thin layer to metals and other materials… mostly to improve their corrosive resistance and thermal properties (see ceramic thin film for details).

    Bumping up! My presentation is tonight at 6 in the new classroom.
