Please leave comments using the discussion tab. The course runs in the Spring semester. It is not open edit.

Notice: Broad and/or obvious patent claims for 3-D printing technology may hamper the open-source 3-D printing community's ability to innovate. Previous work on an algorithm protected 3-D printing materials. This page is part of a Open Source 3-D Printing class project to investigate 3-D printing concepts using TRIZ and is presented here as a defensive publication of prior art to help identify obvious 'inventions' for 3-D printing.

Examiners: The ideas on this page dated April 2017 were developed by university students with less than a semester of formal 3-D printing experience (or by an instructor in class) and thus should be considered unpatentable because of obviousness to any person skilled in the art of additive manufacturing.
Appropedians: This page is open edit. Please fee free to add ideas and sign them below with ~~~~ or to use any of the ideas to built better open-source 3-D printers.

1. We would like to increase the print speed of the Jellybox. We are suggesting the division of the the single extruder into 4 separate extruders that divide the work load and make printing more efficient. 2. This would likely be useful for printers using more than one color of filament, and to solve several issues of maintaining heat in the extruders, preventing drips of unwanted color within the print, and increasing efficiency, the principle of Discarding and Recovering provided the solution of rotating un-used print heads out of the way while not in use.
