Natural News launches 3D print farm in Texas to produce functional parts for revolutionary inventions

3D print farm

(NaturalNews) It's official! As of today, Natural News has a print farm up and running near Austin, Texas, producing small but steady quantities of the very same 3D printable parts the world will soon be able to download for free from www.FoodRising.org

Photos below show some of the parts we have begun to produce via 3D printing. These parts will be offered to the public at a very reasonable price at the same time the downloadable object files are also available for free. (You can choose to print your own for free, or buy them from us already printed, or pay a friend to print them for you, etc.)

Why Texas is a natural choice for entrepreneurs who believe in liberty

The Natural News print farm is based in the business-friendly state of Texas, where we are creating jobs like crazy and bringing innovative new technology to one of the few states that still respects basic liberties and fundamental entrepreneurship.

The Natural News Texas-based 3D print farm is secured with numerous finely-honed firearms openly carried on the hips of numerous people who don't f*%* around when it comes to security, so we fully expect no thefts to take place here. (God bless Texas yet again!) We also gave some local Sheriff Deputies a tour of our facility, and they loved it!

You may already be aware that Texas is also the home of the Defense Distributed project led by Cody Wilson, inventor of the world's first 3D printed firearm. The ability of private citizens to print their own plastic objects drives control freaks crazy and sends freedom-hating politicians into seizures and fits.

My own inventions have nothing to do with weapons and everything to do with food self-reliance and home-grown medicine and even food-based supplements. The revolution launches at www.FoodRising.org with freely-downloadable object files. Timetable for the launch? We originally thought Feb. 15, but now it's looking like the last week in Feb. We're pushing hard to make sure everyone can get these systems up and running in time for Spring in the Northern hemisphere.

Here are some of the photos of the print farm in action, producing actual parts I created for these upcoming inventions:

Right now, I'm just printing four objects at a time, but as soon as some larger filament spools arrive -- 20lb mega-spools! -- we'll be loading up these print plates with 12 objects at a time.

Which 3D printers are we using?

At the moment, we have FlashForge and Type A Machines 3D printers running. Soon to arrive will be an Ultimaker 2 and a Lulzbot Mini, which has just launched at Lulzbot.com.

After hammering all these printers with a few hundred hours of prints, we're going to pick the best printer and buy more of that one.

This is how we'll expand our print farm in the near future. My fear is that we won't be able to ramp up fast enough to meet consumer demand for these parts, so I'm really hoping more people will download the parts and print their own. After all, this is all about the revolution of self-reliance and home-based production, which means I want YOU to produce your own parts!

Read Natural News to learn what works in 3D printing

That's also why everything I learn about successful printing will be passed on to you in the form of these articles. My goal is to help you avoid all the trials and mistakes I've made in 3D printing and help you get up to speed with it as quickly and reliably as possible.

That's why I'm also testing a variety of different filaments, bed adhesion materials (glue sticks, etc.), print speeds and temperatures, and so on. Whatever works best will be openly communicated with Natural News readers so that you can replicate my results and print these amazing inventions for yourself.

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.
