The goal is to provide a 3d scan of the current FM3 Buddhamachine so that it can hopefully be printed on a home 3d printer. Fabricatorz Barry Threw and Brad Phillips did some scans and basic dissection of the device.

[edit] Problems

  • The current case we used is partially transparent, so we had to pay the casing so that laser light did not diffract and create a broken model.
  • Also, the current case is created from a metal mode more than likely by hand and not mechanically designed. This causes problems

[edit] Assessment

  • The case is not very good for 3D Scanning and printing.
  • Its a better use of resources to redesign the case for simplest mechanical reproduction
  • Also, a great path forward would be a scan and also a total product breakdown, including the chips.
  • How can make the entire device copyleft hardware?
  • What is the commodity or is it all just niche?
  • How could this fit into copyleft hardware project?
