Equipment and supplies to make beautiful products. inventables.com | 312.800.1625 | help@inventables.com


Inventables sells equipment and supplies to make beautiful products. From Our CEO Welcome to the revolution. A third industrial revolution is underway. Manufacturing is going digital. Desktop manufacturing is changing the way products are designed, prototyped and made. In 2002, I founded Inventables to inspire design and innovation. We started by building material libraries for large corporations. Over the last 10 years, we’ve watched manufacturing tools like 3D printers, laser cutters and milling machines go from factories and Fortune 500 R&D labs, to desktops around the world. You no longer need to own a large company to take an idea and make it a reality—something you can hold, or even sell if you’d like. We saw people around the world making inspiring products and beautiful objects without the backing of a huge brand. In response, we launched an online hardware store for designers—people like you. Although we are adding new products to the store each week, we created this catalog to give you a quick overview of the eight categories we carry and to celebrate the work of some of our customers by showcasing products they have designed using materials and machines from Inventables.

Regards,

Zach Kaplan This watch was designed by Inventables customer Daniel Schemel of Mistura Watches. The watch dial is made from Zebrawood, the strap is genuine leather, the chassis is CNC milled from PUI wood with mineral glass and the back is stainless steel. mistura.com

The juicer shown here is part of Project RE by Samuel Bernier. He is studying do-it-yourself communities and the capacity of their members to locally reproduce objects designed in other countries. The 3D printed juicer is designed to screw on a used glass jar. To be food safe, 3D printed plastics must be sealed with epoxy to prevent bacterial growth in the cracks.

Acrylic is a plastic material that looks similar to glass, but is less brittle and provides better insulation. This acrylic sheet comes in both extruded, or “continuous cast” acrylic, as well as cast acrylic. Extruded acrylic is less expensive, softer and can scratch easier than cast acrylic. This material is ideal for laser cutters and engraving.

Natural Cork Sheet, available in 1/16 in and 1/4 in thicknesses, is a high-grade cork harvested in Europe that can be used to manufacture products like coasters and bulletin boards and as lining for cabinets and drawers. The thinner form of this particular version makes it ideal for craft, hobby and other DIY applications. The bubble-form structure of cork also makes it a suitable candidate for acoustic and thermal insulation in house walls, floors, ceilings and facades.

HDPE stands for high-density polyethylene. We offer both natural and black HDPE sheets in the shapes and sizes perfect for CNC Milling on the Shapeoko.

Highly Reflective Transparent Glass is a version of the Transparent Mirror Glass, but made using an optical interference coated, low iron glass to achieve higher clarity and a slightly higher reflectance. Similar to transparent mirror glass, it looks like a transparent pane of glass when placed in front of a lit background and reflects a silvery color like a mirror when placed in front of a dark surface.

Transparent Mirror Glass is a mineral glass that has been coated on both sides with an optical interference coating, which enables a degree of both reflection and transparency in the material.

Birch Wood Veneer

MDF (medium-density fibreboard) is an engineered wood product. Made up of separated fibres, it is denser than plywood, but can be used as a building material similar in application to plywood. It is stronger and more dense than normal particle board and provides a great, millable foundation that can be finished with the adhesive veneers, above.

The MakerSlide rail, part #25142, is an aluminum extrusion with two special V rails for wheels to roll on. This component is interesting for people designing CNC machines because it acts as the structural support and the linear bearing system. Above is a diagram showing how the standard plate #25200 can be used with the other components to make a slider carriage that rolls on the MakerSlide rail. Custom plates can also be designed. Inventables uses this system on its Shapeoko CNC Milling machine.

These compact switches activate in the presence of a magnet. The normally open switch variety is available in three series. Each series activates at a different air gap distance which is the measurement of how close the activating magnet has to be to close the switch. The Proximity Sensing Magnetic Switch (#24147) is a low cost, two-wire magnetic switch that offers ferrous metal proximity sensing without the need for a magnet actuator.

Our resin selection can be used for injection molding or extrusion. You will need to order the Natural ABS Resin and mix in the color or colors you desire. The typical let down ratio is to add 2% of the color additive by weight. The higher the ratio the richer the colors will be. For example if you added 1% red it would look pink.

These non-toxic, powdered mica pigments can be used in both interior and exterior applications. They can be mixed into any viscous medium including Inventables’ Hand Moldable Plastic when it is in molten form. Using a tool like the mortar from a mortar and pestle, the pigment is pushed into the plastic over and over until the color is even throughout.

Green Pigment

This hand moldable plastic has a melting temperature of about 136–140°F (58–60°C). It is great for making one-off prototypes and can be molded with your hands. It hardens when it cools. The pigments below can be mixed in to change the color of the plastic.
