Here's a picture of our new 3d printer. It's the UPrint desktop printer from Stratysis. I got it for the purpose of outputting prototype enclosures for the NimblePad that we are working on under contract to Nimble Assessment Systems. But I am hoping to use this for many other things, including making lots of audio-tactile models and other touch-sensitive interactive displays. With the new usb sensor device that Zach is making producing now, and plastic models printed from this machine, we can make detailed very strong exhibits cheaply and rapidly. Right now, I am printing a pivoting fixture for mounting the wii remote to a mobility cane. I am hoping that other interesting new things will emerge from this, and would welcome comments or suggestions.
