3D printed horse shoes

By | Healthcare | No Comments

Customised to the horse with shaping to enhance gait.


CSIRO 3D printing expert John Barnes says it’s a breakthrough for 3D printing technology.

“You can get an extraordinary amount of detail basically for free, which if you’re doing it conventionally that detail would cost a lot of money,” he said.

“The other area that is important is customisation – he (the podiatrist) can tell us the way he wants the shoe to be designed.”

The “horse-thotic” was specifically designed to help combat a foot disease.

“In this case it had an extra curvature to it,” Mr Barnes said.

“The apex of that curvature may be different for a different horse.

“And that’s what we’re able to design on the computer and that takes a relatively short period of time.

“Then we can print them in our machine which takes somewhere between two to four hours depending upon how many we want and that type of thing.”

First colour samples of the best 3d printer filament we have tested yet.

By | News | 4 Comments

A big box has arrived at our UK office with a selection of coloured filament in both PLA and ABS. Time to start  tuning some settings.

The eprom on each material reel tells the printer which filament has been loaded and set up a huge range of variables without the need for user input.

The filament quality is extremely consistent in thickness, colour and material. We chose this supplier because the filament was far superior to any other filament we have tested with Robox.

We will nail down a good list of colours and finishes for release day in a range of materials for both build and support, following release we will add to the range based on popular requests.


What colours, textures or materials would you like to print with?

This post about bed materials is related to materials.
We will begin selling materials as soon as we can via this site All our filament will be available for use on other printers.
