Fixing Unstiched Models in Fusion 360

The Source (Literally) of the Problem When designing 3D models for 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC work, or almost any other purposes, there are a number of great resources for downloading models of common parts other people made. For example, McMaster Carr provides...

Use SVG Nest to Minimize Laser Cutting Cost

The Costs of Laser Cutting Whether you are fortunate enough to own a laser cutter, or rely on a laser cutting service like Ponoko, when it comes to the cost of laser cutting, you are basically paying for two things:  the material you are cutting, and the time required...
Hexapod Inverse Kinematics Equations

Hexapod Inverse Kinematics Equations

Hexapod Leg Layout and Leg Parts Controlling hexapod robots requires the use of a type of mathematics called inverse kinematics. This post contains all of the inverse kinematics calculations for a hexapod robot consisting of a hexagonal body with six legs spaced...
Form 1+ 0.1mm vs. 0.025mm Layer Thickness

Form 1+ 0.1mm vs. 0.025mm Layer Thickness

The Formlabs Form 1+ is capable of printing parts in three layer thicknesses:  0.1mm, 0.05mm, or 0.025mm. There are benefits and drawbacks to each of these layer thicknesses and each has its own applications. This page compares the extremes of the Form 1+’s...
