Martha Vader – A MakerBot sings the imperial march and makes a Darth Vader Head

We got black ABS plastic into the MakerBot store. Now you can make black or white objects with your MakerBot. We had this plastic custom manufactured and it’s beautiful, extrudes great, and has a really nice silky sheen to it. Marius and Philipp of the Metalab in Vienna take responsibility for this wonderful robot stunt. They have been visiting and they set up the MakerBot named Martha Vader to sing the imperial march and make a Darth Vader Head. The sound is coming from the stepping of the steppers. Each step of the motor creates a square wave and when you line them up at the right speeds, music is possible!

    If anyone is interested, I’ve put the python script which generates the song in G-Code here:

    The makerbot is weak. Look into other alternatives

    It is weak because:
    1. it only prints with one material
    2. the volume of the objects printed is also very limited

    Peter- I’ve just got to say that your arguement doesn’t hold water when:

    1) It only prints in one material YET.

    2) The volume of prints is limited only by the current iteration of the design — which is open source, and fully hackable by anyone owning it. More than can be said for most products today, and all but one other 3d printer.

    3) Makerbot already has a larger hacker community behind it that any programmable fabricator available (including even the fab@home, the other open source printer)

    4) The functionality of the printer is limited only by participation of the community — new print heads, build parameters, software hacks, and build materials will enable new functionality.

    5) So basically, if you have 10 times the money that we all do for a commercial FDM, then good luck to you. However, if you want 70% (and growing all the time) of the performance of that same machine for literally 10% of the cost, and the freedom to load it with anything that will melt, Makerbot is your horse.
