  • 3D PRINTING

    3D Printing is an additive manufacturing process that creates a physical object from a digital design. There are different 3D printing technologies and materials you can print with, but all are based on the same principle: a digital model is turned into a solid three-dimensional physical object by adding material layer by layer. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.(Source:- https://www.3dhubs.com)

  • There is a different way to print a 3D object.

    Stereolithography(SLA)

    This process that converts liquid plastic into solid objects.

    These 3D printing technologies are also available in desktop 3D printers. Materials are limited to resins, but new varieties have appeared recently providing strength or flexibility to the final objects.SLA and DLP 3D printers produce highly accurate parts with smooth surface finishes and are commonly used for highly detailed sculptures, jewellery moulds, and prototypes. Because of their relatively small size, they are not recommended for printing large objects.(Source:- https://www.3dhubs.com)

    Material Jetting (PolyJet and MultiJet Modeling)

    Material Jetting (Stratasys PolyJet and 3D Systems MultiJet Modeling) technologies are similar to inkjet printing, but instead of jetting drops of ink onto paper, these 3D printers jet layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and cure them instantly using UV light.

    Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

    Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) uses a laser to melt and solidify layers of powdered material into finished objects.

    Fused-deposition moulding (FDM)

    The FDM printing process starts with a string of solid material called the filament. This line of filament is guided from a reel attached to the 3D printer to a heated nozzle inside of the 3D printer that melts the material. Once in a melted state, the material can be extruded on a specific and predetermined path created by the software on the computer. As the material is extruded as a layer of the object on this path, it instantly cools down and solidifies โ€“ providing the foundation for the next layer of material until the entire object is manufactured.

    As the cheapest 3D printing technology on the market, FDM also offers a wide variety of plastic-based materials in a rainbow of colors including ABS, PLA, nylon and even more exotic material blends including carbon, bronze or wood.(Source :- https://www.3dhubs.com)



  • PRINTING MATERIAL

    The material used will affect the mechanical properties and accuracy of the printed part, but also its price. The most common FDM materials are summarized in the table below. (Source:- https://www.3dhubs.com/knowledge-base/introduction-fdm-3d-printing

    Hey guys, we are thrilled to announce the speaker Mr. Brian Douglas for our upcoming event organised by HackClub TIST as part of Hacktoberfest 2020. He will guide you through GitHub and the importance of Open Source contributions.

    Mr. Brian Douglas has been working as a Staff Developer Advocate at GitHub for the past three years and was fully on-board with us when we contacted him about the event.

    We at Hackclub TIST strongly believe in the power of collaboration and how even the smallest guidance can have a huge impact in the long run.

    So register now at http://hackclubtist.tech/hacktoberfest and lets git learning (pun intended).

    @Anudeep Thanks a lot m8, I actually made a very silly mistake of including the https:// while entering FIREBASE_HOST, where I must have entered the Domain name alone and removed the https:// extension.

    Thanks again for replying that quick. Cheers.

    Hello @Palani, In the Firebase, there are two types of storage,

    Cloud Firestore (Very recent one & NoSQL database) Realtime Database (To which we upload the data using NodeMCU)

    In the Arduino Code, you can see that there is a variable named FIREBASE_AUTH.

    This variable should be assigned to the Database secret. This you can find in Project Settings -> Service accounts -> Database Secrets.

    My mistake is, i have mistakenly assigned thay to Web API key. This is found at Project Settings -> General.

    The error can also occur when u don't initialise a proper realtime database in Firebase. (This is not my case).
