A remix of a great little Gecko model to be used as a fridge magnet. One of my kids loves putting things on the fridge, and loves my super strong neodymium magnets, and loves 3D printing, so I combined the lot in this remix! She even helped with the measuring of the magnet using my … Read more
All things to do with Thingiverse. Check out my profile on there to see what i’ve been printing and making – http://www.thingiverse.com/chunkysteveo/about.
Either by fault of my own or tolerances in the steel rod or frame after successfully wiggling and inserting the rod, they did not fit snug and were not tight enough, This caused the rods to move as the print bed went back and forth. I did not want any possible movement in the rods, so investigated Thingiverse for a simple clip bracket to hold the rods in place at each end. A couple of minutes later and there was a simple little bracket design by user Hobsie which looked perfect and resolved the issue.
A neat little model to print and make from Thingiverse. I want to print the original full size Articulated Octopus, but for now I found this remix which is a keyring. Printed on my Printrbot Simple 3D Printer and recorded on the time lapse function of my Octoprint Octopi print server installed on a Raspberry Pi.
I was in need of a case for my Raspberry Pi Zero so looked around on Thingiverse for a suitable one. I wanted a simple case with no mechanical fasteners, just something to protect it and have easy “snap on” parts. I went with the model by cfunseth on Thingiverse, but soon realised it wouldn’t … Read more
The steel frame of the P3Steel could easily scratch up any surface it sits on, and vibrations and movement may be translated down through it’s legs. I am building the printer on a table, so was very aware of scratching it(!) A look on Thinkgiverse shows a lot of different feet for the printer, but … Read more
Over the weekend while browsing through AliExpress for my usual random electrical stuff I came across two new listings for the frame of a P3Steel 2.5 DXL edition. Clicking through to them and viewing all the images noticed it was MY kitchen… THAT’S MY FRAME!
What a great design, and simple print. Very easy to print and snapped together in a couple of clicks. The suspension design is genius and works really well. Went with the two tone tyres and swapped out the filament to white on the last few layers. Wheels clipped in well with the rims and work great.
Time lapse of 3D printed Makerbot T-REX SKELETON from Thingiverse. This was a very cool print, and a long one at that! The model from MakerBot is perfect, and ideally set up for 3D printing.
Time lapse of 3D printed Colosseum. Time lapse taken from my Octoprint server attached to my Printrbot Simple Makers 1405 using the standard Raspberry Pi camera and a wide angle clip on lens. Original model is by CausalJoemama7 is on Thingiverse by MakerBot and can be found here – http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:962416. My make can be found … Read more
