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. upgrade belt system
    2. upgrade to more accurate stepper motors
    3. use intelligent systems to monitor print parameters
    4. Print underwater
    5. create a system to automatically add more filament
    6. use sensor to detect under or over extrusion
    7. connect to internet to monitor prints
    8. use system to stop prints if they fail
    9. use dissolving printer
    10. use dissolving computer
    11. more intelligent slicing software
    12. connect slicing software to printer so it can improve g code based of print results
    13. print bat to emergency stop printer if needed
    14. print emergency protocol system
    15. use padders to pat the sides to make them smooth
    16. use cap mechanism to prevent excess extrusion
    17. self improving gcode to limit printer movement
    18. Self leveling system for ease of setup
    19. Smaller filament distance from printer head source
