FlashForge Dreamer Business-Level 3D Printer with FDM Technology (3D-FFG-DREAMER) @ff3dprinters

FlashForge Dreamer Business-Level 3D Printer with FDM Technology (3D-FFG-DREAMER)

Dreamer 3D Printer Business-Level Desktop 3D Printer
Buy Now

The Dreamer 3D Printer from Flashforge allows you to create three-dimensional prints from up to two colors and materials, up to a build volume of nearly 300 cubic inches. Mix and match colors in ABS, PLA, or water-soluble PVA filament to create prints in resolutions as fine as 100 microns, or in rougher 400-micron layers when a quicker, less intricate result is required.

Send your prepared 3D files to the Dreamer via USB, Wi-Fi, or SD card, and navigate the menu via its 3.5″ multi-language touchscreen. The enclosed build chamber insulates heat, creating an ideal environment for ABS printing. When printing with PLA, open the glass door to provide ventilation. Dissolvable PVA filament is also compatible with the Dreamer, and can be used for printing filler or support structures that can then be easily removed post-printing without tools.

The Dreamer’s built-in filament chambers ensure your filament is fed to the extruders smoothly and without winding errors. Your Dreamer 3D printer comes fully-assembled with a build plate that does not require calibration, two spools of filament, and a 4GB SD Card, so you can begin printing right out of the box.

Features :

  • ARM Contex-M4 CPU processor, for faster computing
  • IPS material 3.5in. multi-language touchscreen LCD panel operation
  • Self-developed Flashprint model slice driver process
  • Support with WiFi connection, uplaoding the printing file to machine
  • Built-in 4g memory support wtih storing file and folder
  • Firmware upgradeable
  • Support with USB 2.0/ up to 32GB memory card
  • High-end plastic-alloy body, a sense of fashion and technology
  • Supports Windows XP/7/8 32 or 64-bit, Linux & Mac OS
  • Compatible with Skeinforge and Slic3r slicing Optional effect of slicing
  • No need to carlibrate the Imported Aerometal material printing platform
  • Easy to operate, upgradeable, modular design of extruder
  • Dual-Color & Multi-Material
    Maximize the Dreamer’s capabilities by using two colors to create colorful prints in a variety of combinations. Switch from ABS to PLA materials depending on your needs, and use dissolvable PVA filament to build support or filler structures that you can then easily remove post-printing by immersing in water.

    Multiple Connectivity Options
    Transfer your completed designs to the Dreamer via USB cable, SD card, or Wi-Fi.

    Multiple Resolutions
    Choose a slower, finer resolution setting when building intricate, detailed models at up to 100-micron layer accuracy. Select faster, draft-like conditions as coarse as 500 microns per layer when you require a rougher, less accurate print.

    LED Strip Lighting
    User-defined LED strip lighting lines the interior of the Dreamer for increased visibility. You’ll be able to see your 3D models come to life at every step.

Bachi Burger Pasadena Opening Soon @bachiburger

Bachi Burger Pasadena

After opening in West Los Angeles,  BACHI BURGER WEST LA is finally open!!  soft opening , September 24, 2014. Located at 2030 Sawtelle Blvd. Los Angeles CA 90025.

What does “bachi” mean?

For us there is a dual meaning.  Bachi is an abbreviated term for the word “Hibachi” which refers to a method of Japanese style of grilling.  The word bachi also means to treat others how you would like to be treated in return.


Asian-style Burgers and Unique Beverages

Our burgers are inspired from the varied asian influences from the Hawaiian islands.  Boba drinks and milkshakes, sodas made in house and Asian style iced teas, milk teas and coffees were an obvious pairings with our unique burgers and sandwiches.  For our beer menu we looked towards local domestic microbrews in the U.S. that could match up to our flavors with a few imports to compliment.  Our Sake offerings are carefully selected to pair well with our cuisine yet offer great variety to our discerning customers.



Bachi Burger has a strong belief in sustainable and environmentally principled business practices and products.  All of our used oil is recycled locally as a renewable energy source.  All food compost is transported to local farms.  All other post consumer waste materials that can be recycled are separated daily.  We continue to research both food and non-food products for materials that are either recycled or did not have a negative impact on the environment during growing or production.  That is our commitment to the world we all live in.



We also believe in being a positive part of the community.  Bachi Burger supports local artists and showcase their art throughout the restaurant.

Where is Your Food Going?

Catch the US premier of Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story on Saturday, October 18th.  Filmmakers Jen Rustemeyer and Grant Baldwin dive into the world of food waste after they pledge to quit shopping at grocery stores and survive only on food that would be thrown away. Tickets are available here!

Just Eat It – A food waste story (Trailer) from Grant Baldwin on Vimeo.

We collectively waste nearly 50% of global food. Jen and Grant dive into the chain of food waste from farm . . .to the back of the fridge.

We all love food. We devour countless cooking shows, food magazines and foodie blogs. We celebrate our marriages, religious beliefs and birthdays over food. The question is, “why are we throwing away nearly half of it away?”

Follow Jen and Grant as they explore the chain of food waste from farm to the “back of the fridge”. Along their journey they question sell by dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, while pledging to survive only on (pre-consumer) foods that would otherwise be thrown away.

We believe that coffee holds its flavor best at a steady temperature of 85 degrees Celsius. To us, the name 85C symbolizes our devotion to provide coffee of the highest quality. We hope to give our customers the best drink possible by paying careful attention to every detail which may affect its taste. Of course, our goal of perfection extends to all of our products, not just our coffee.

85C Bakery Cafe was founded with the philosophy of 5-star quality at affordable prices.
One afternoon a few years ago in Taiwan, the founder of 85C Bakery Cafe, Mr. Wu Cheng-Hsueh took a group of business associates to a cafe in a local five-star hotel to celebrate their success. Peering through the window, he saw that people outside of the cafe were busy and rushed, whereas the patrons inside the cafe were having a relaxed moment enjoying gourmet deserts and drinks. Upon opening the menu, he realized the fact that the prices were set way too high for ordinary people to enjoy on a whim. At that moment, Mr. Wu envisioned a cafe that provides five-star quality coffee, cakes and breads at not so five-star prices. Thus 85C Bakery Cafe’s journey begins…
The first 85C Bakery Cafe was opened in Taipei, Taiwan in 2004. We currently have over 700 stores in Taiwan, China, Australia, Hong Kong, and the U.S.A.

Tesla Autopilot and AWD Announcement @teslamotors

During the event on Oct 9, 2014, which started a little after 8pm PST. Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced several items, primarily that every new Model S is now Autopilot enabled, with software updates being delivered to provide enhancements.

The AWD dual motor option will provide 0-60 in 3.2 seconds! Yes that’s fast or as Musk described “insane” mode on the Tesla.

Musk features like the car getting ready for you or picking up at a location based on your calendar and appointments. Seems futuristic… well the future is here. Imagine your Tesla dropping you off and parking itself in a parking structure.  Yes, like a valet Knight Rider KITT car.

Musk jokingly even offered that someday the car will plug itself in.  Which we believe the technology for wireless charging will become a reality as well.


Model S comes standard with a forward looking camera, radar, and 360-degree ultrasonic sensors that actively monitor the surrounding roadway. Progressive software updates over time will enable sophisticated convenience and safety features that use these sensors to respond to real world conditions. These features will ultimately give Model S Autopilot capability on the highway from on-ramp to off-ramp.


Tech Package with Autopilot

The Tech Package adds a host of features to an already advanced car.

  • Autopilot convenience features available through software updates
  • Onboard maps and navigation for North America with free updates for 7 years
  • LED running lights, cornering lights, and fog lamps
  • Automatic keyless entry
  • Lighted door handles
  • Power liftgate
  • Electrochromatic mirrors
  • Power folding, heated side mirrors
  • GPS enabled Homelink
  • Memory seats, mirrors, and driver profile

“King of Big Screen” – Paul’s TV & Appliances – Specials @KingofBigScreen

Paul’s TV & Appliances

Paul founded Paul’s TV (and appliance at the time) over 46 years ago with a $1,000 loan from a relative.

AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda – See AWAKE in theatres across the nation! @AwakeYogananda

Dear AWAKE Community,

The moment has finally come!

AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda officially opens to the public this Friday, Oct. 10 at the Village East Cinema in New York City.  On Thursday, the Indian Consulate is graciously hosting us at a private reception to help launch the film in NYC.

The following week, we open in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area. Then AWAKE expands nationwide. Below is a list of cities in which we have bookings, check our website for details or follow the links below:
Albuquerque, NM
Berkeley, CA
Chicago, IL
Dallas, TX
Los Angeles, CA
Pasadena, CA
Portland, OR
San Jose, CA
Santa Fe, NM
Tucson, AZ

Atlanta, GA

Boulder, CO
Claremont, CA
Encinitas, CA
Minneapolis, MN
Philadelphia, PA
San Diego, CA
San Rafael, CA
Seattle, WA
Tulsa, OK
Yellow Springs, OH

Bellingham, WA
Cambridge, MA
Cleveland, OH
Kansas City, MO
New York, NY
Phoenix, AZ
San Francisco, CA
Santa Cruz, CA
Sebastopol, CA
Washington, DC

Many of these listings are for a weeklong engagement of 3-4 showings per day — so while it may be tempting to go immediately on the first night, we encourage you to distribute your attendance throughout the week to draw larger audiences to each showing.  Some of the cities above are limited engagement of one or two shows — check the links for more info.

If your city is not represented above and you are located in the U.S., you can help bring AWAKE to a theatre near you by using Gathr® “Theatrical on Demand.”  It’s actually quite simple and fully explained on our screenings page.  You can request a screening using your zip code and Gathr finds a theatre near you.  You won’t have to pay any fees — just spread the word and get people to sign up for tickets. Once your screening reaches the “tipping point” (when the minimum number of tickets have been reserved), it becomes a reality!  (No one is charge until it’s a go.)

We are deeply grateful for your continued support.  Together we can bring AWAKE to communities across America!  (And soon we will announce our plans for international distribution.)
