The spreading of 3D printers is giving hint to the creativity of many
people, including myself, it's great to draw an object and then send it
to to the printer, you will be fascinated to see how a thin wire, like
raw material, fluid materialize your idea.
It would be great if our 3D Printer can be remotely controlled from
the office or from our car, check the progress of work and even stop in
case of emergency.
Zubi is the cheap and DIY solution.
Project has been present at Rome Maker Faire in october 2014 .
After test compatibility Zubi will be soon available in kit for everyone and for Workshop in Fablabs
NOW available on http://www.118volt.it/store/kit/

IwCNC? (Light Multipurpose CNC)
Project is a structure for 3-axis CNC, replicable and open source; simple, light, cheap and clean, for a hobby use / home use, able to use various tools, easily replaceable (drills, syringes for food and other materials, pen for writing, low power laser for small incisions), with suction of waste materials and can be stored in a special laser cutted suitcase.
The project evolution provides the possibility of became a 3D printer by replacing the tool with an extruder.
The project is based on GRBL for the control software of the movement, for the mechanical parts are used cheap and readily available materials, such as profiles T-slot aluminum, nylon wheels on standard bearing 626ZZ, and 3D printed supports. The electronics are built on double side pcb in through hole technology, easy to solder, key components are an Arduino Nano and 3 motor driver Stepstick 4988 with extensions pins to enable / disable the tools or tools to manage fan and accessories.

Build Your Own ZUBI 1.0 born from 3DWebfier Project.
This projet will be present at Rome Maker Faire 2014 at Fablab Roma Makers booths
Setting up an ZUBI device.
Within a few minutes you can have a fully working ZUBI device, as you will see in this tutorial.
What is ZUBI?
ZUBI is a complete, hardware&software open-source solution, born from 3DWebfier project to control a 3d Printer.
Based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended to give to the Makers community an Open option making a very cheap board with minimal components and really easy to realize itself.
Two option: Wifi or Bluetooth. It's very very cheap, more or less 12 Euros for BT solution.

First 3d print test on wireless mode.
Gcode file wireless trasferred from Pronterface to the Falla 3d Printer.
Used 3D Webfier acting as USBtoWifi bridge
