Health Ranger to release open source 3D printer files for upcoming invention with early 2015 release date

Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) We've got great news to share with you today: I have confirmed that I'll be able to publicly release open-source 3D printer files for some of the key parts for the upcoming invention I'm announcing in early 2015.

The invention is loosely described in this article and is a physical device that can give "people everywhere the ability to be more self-sustaining and self-reliant in four key areas: food, water, nutrition and medicine."

What's so extraordinary about this invention is that it requires no electricity and no complex moving parts (no pumps, no circuit boards, no gears, etc.). That means it's 100% EMP-proof, power grid failure proof and even radiation proof. This is an invention that can help keep you alive even after a nuclear war or power grid collapse. That's why I'm pushing so hard to get this released as soon as possible.

As I've been learning 3D modeling and CAD / CAM software recently, I've come to realize that several of the parts for this invented can be 3D printed, and that means we can publicly release them for everyone to download and print on their own. Only a few of the parts can be 3D printed, however. Some parts for this invention are too large for 3D printing and are far easier to produce via vacuum forming or mold injection techniques. But I will be posting the CAD files for those parts which can be printed, and we'll add more object files to the collection over time.

Here's a photo of the Lulzbot 3D printer I've chosen for this project, courtesy of this excellent review article on LibertyBlitzkrieg.com.

Manufacturing for this invention is being set up in central Texas, and I've had to work hard to overcome all sorts of technical obstacles and learn new skills to make this a reality. For example, I've had to learn 3D modeling CAD / CAM software to model the object prototypes for printing. I've also had to learn to become proficient in both additive manufacturing (3D printing) and subtractive manufacturing (CNC routing).

The CNC router we've chosen for this project, by the way, has a 3 HP router capable of producing complex 3D shapes from blocks of plastic, wood or aluminum. CNC routers are the opposite of 3D printers: they remove material from blocks of wood or plastic, leaving behind the precise shape that you want.

Here's a photo of what a CNC router looks like:

DIY video instructions to be released with the invention

I'm a huge proponent of the open-source movement and the principle of decentralization of power. Most of the evil taking place in our world today is a result of corporate monopolies (think Big Pharma or Monsanto) or government concentration of too much power in the hands of too few people. (Even the Pope recently said that greed would destroy humanity.) That's why projects like Defense Distributed -- also based on 3D printing -- are so important for the survival of democracy in a world full of corrupt, criminal politicians and fascist governments.

Because I hold true to the philosophy of the democratization of knowledge and manufacturing, in addition to publicly releasing the 3D printable object files for certain parts in this invention, I'm also committed to shooting video of how you can make all this stuff yourself, DIY-style from commonly available parts at your local hardware store.

If you wish, then, you can build these units yourself using makeshift parts and common power tools. In fact, that's how I started designing and building these units myself. They're ugly as crap but they work. Naturally, you can purchase our pre-made units to save yourself time and hassle, but in an economic collapse that option may not be available, and that's part of the reason why I want to get these video instructions on the record for the whole world to follow.

I will be asking for volunteers to subtitle these instructions videos in various world languages, so if you have the capability to help us subtitle this video in Spanish, French, German, Chinese, and so on, please consider volunteering that effort once we get closer to launch day. Your effort may literally help impact millions of lives in a positive way!

Stay tuned to Natural News for more announcements on this invention. Depending on how well the manufacturing setup goes, I realistically hope to be able to announce all this in late January or early February at this point. The 3D printable files will be made publicly available at the time of the announcement. Finished units made in Texas will hopefully be available for purchase in February in limited quantities, with larger quantities available throughout the spring and summer of 2015.

Thank you for all your continued support of Natural News and our online store. It is truly your purchases that make these projects possible. Without your help, we never would have been able to afford the time and equipment necessary to invent these practical solutions for humanity.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
