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.
- Make the 3D printer safer for children by blocking direct touch to the metal part of the extruder.
- A hollow, aluminum cylinder will fit right around the metal extruder.
- The cylinder should be aluminum since this metal conducts little heat.
- No part of the cylinder should directly touch the metal extruder.
- The aluminum cylinder should be just 1 mm higher than the end tip of the extruder.
- This is a very cheap solution that should interfere with the printing process, yet prevent young children from getting burnt.
