3D Printing – Making a Bearing inside a Bearing

at 2:33 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets, Insane Equipment

Bradley Rigdon who owns Print To 3D shows us how he can print a cool bearing with his 3D printer. This printer is a bit different than the Makerbot that we have featured here before. His Dimension 3D printer uses uses 2 types of material, one that makes the structure of the item and a second material that can be dissolved after the model has been printed. See the videos below for an inside view of the system. The last video illustrates the power of having a dissolvable second plastic material, a functional Rubik’s Cube like game is printed with no assembly needed!

Bradley is an avid RC hobbyist, he shares some video of his collection here and here.

    […] I remember how crazy it seemed a year and a half ago when when Bradley Rigdon demonstrated how to print a 3D bearing. Most of us have now seen something that has been printed in a 3D printer. This is thanks in large […]
