    DIY Bladeparts are killing the industry?

    Are they?

    If i don't get what i think i want, am i working agains the industry if i make my own stuff? Or is it just the shape of things to come.

    Rapid prototyping did start a whole new form of producing. no more expensive moulds for a prototype. It is still way more expensive but there is a fast turnaround and
    the option of Opensource the designs is democraticing the design of blading. Soon a lot more people are able to produce their own parts, even blades.

    How should the Industry react? Put more time into the design process? Restrict to liners and wheels?
    Or is the sheer number of DIY people just too insignificant?

    would be interesting to hear your opinions.

    Also here's the Link to all my Opensource Stuff, feel free to download the sourcefiles and get creative. (so far it's only the frames, soulplate are coming soon)

    Yeah, I dont think 3d printers and the quality of material is anywhere near affordable enough to let the average blade dude print his own stuff yet.

      What industry? Small factories assembling seasonally colored Bauers/Lightnings?

      No trouble for them until a lot of us start selling stuff. The scale needed for injection molding doesn't make sense vs. small run/DIY when quantities get small enough. Obviously the good/better/best stuff will be made and iterated on a small scale -- although wheels might be hard to do well.

      The average blade dude probably never will, but might buy stuff from those that do.

      Cost and quality aren't really the issues now. You can build one of these for about 300usd: https://reprap.org/wiki/Mostly_Printed_CNC

      Cuts UHMW and aluminum beautifully, uses lots of skate bearings.

        Unless blading blows up again, 10 years down the line I imagine most companies will offer a raised heel urban/rec skate with a compatible aftermarket sole plate for those interested in doing aggressive tricks. Seems like a lot of people are satisfied to skate a very basic shell with an intuition liner. I'm sure 3-d Printing will only get better, and people will probably have better controls over IP like print models, so you could charge someone to print your custom frame schematics.

          ohh they SO are. problem can be in creating a project etc but decent 3D printers for consumer use are released and upgraded daily. in 3 years we will be using it for everything...

                  Go for it with the above file. You can run these on any cheap FDM printer with:
                  75% infill
                  nylon filament (others will break)
                  all-metal hotend (to print nylon)
                  You could also CNC them out of UHMW for super-strong, slightly uglier straps.

                  Claudio: is your SLS rig set up to print alumide or carbonamide powder?

                    Hey,

                    I'ts not mine, i order from a company (actually the one that prints the Sola stuff and the 909 Prototype. And they can print alumide.
                    I'm working on a Soulframe for the 909 thats made from alumide

                          Which Sola stuff do they print- prototypes? Aren't his production pieces all Chinese?

                          SLS will definitely make "strong enough" on-demand parts more accessible; unfortunately 5-10k euro per machine is still too steep for most spaces to have em.

                            Maybe some parts of the industry need a slow prolonged death. No more drop shipped hats and tees, no more alibaba urethane, no more pretentious owners...

                              Looks good, give em a Testdrive.

                              SolĂ  prints the Alumide Grindblocks, and the THEM Prototypes of course

                                ah, the price on those makes more sense now.

                                Are you ordering glass-nylon or just pure nylon prints? Any breakage?

                                I dunno, the quality seems on par with most wheel resellers' without the markup? ..
