International Space Station Crew 3D-Prints Meat In Space For The First Time!

For the first time in the history of space, meat was ‘created’ on the International Space Station (ISS) and no animals were harmed in the making of this 3D bio-printed ‘space beef.' On October 7, Aleph Farms, an Israeli food company, announced that its experiment aboard the space lab resulted in the first lab-grown meat in space. Albeit climate change was the main motivation for the company to pro...

3D printer filament extruder and production line

Since the drop in the price, 3D printers become popular to be used. However,once you are a owner of a 3D printer you will soon realize that your wallet is become more and more thin. Yes,you need plastic filament to print what you want. But the price for these filaments tend to top the actual material costs, this will become a big problem to the development of the growing 3D printer. Recently, we r...

Stepper driver for 3D Printer?

Stepper Driver I've heard there is accident that user do Not apply a stepper driver to make the stepper motor work, but connect the stepper motor to power supply directly, the result is the stepper burn stupidly. It's Not a joke. Let's check out the stepper driver series that companies has bring us. A4982, A4988, DRV8825 (Texas Instruments) , TMC2100, TMC2130, TMC2208, TB6560, TB6600 and other ste...

Stepper or servo cylinder

What is cylinder? Let's check out what's the definition of Cylinder Wikipedia has given. "A cylinder is the central working part of a reciprocating engine or pump, the space in which a piston travels. Multiple cylinders are commonly arranged side by side in a bank, or engine block, which is typically cast from aluminum or cast iron before receiving precision machine work. Cylinders may be sleeved ...

Bipolar or unipolar stepper motor

Two phase stepper motor There are two basic winding arrangements for the electromagnetic coils in a two phase stepper motor, one being bipolar and the other unipolar. A unipolar stepper motor has one winding with center tap per phase. Each section of windings is switched on for each direction of magnetic field. Since in this arrangement a magnetic pole can be reversed without switching the directi...
