UNTESTED SO FAR! xxdanmurphyxx designed a reinforced (left) NEMA 17 motor mount and published it on Thingiverse (as CC-BY). As the motor shaft position is important for CoreXY mechanics and he didn't mention which other mount to use, I took out the raise here. Mirroring has to be done in the...

Test piece for speed, jerk, acceleration as well as ringing, vibration, vertical banding and other artefacts. Ran some tests on my CoreXY printer with two " Test part to look at X and Y damping and resonance by MiseryBot", but realized, that it was too small. This part has the 45° and...

Tardis Motion Sensor Alarm

I had a motion sensor for a security system kicking around for a long time. After seeing the Dr Who Tardis model on Thingiverse. I thought the sensor would work well to active a LED in the model. After printing off the Tardis and transplanting the electronics in to it. I would have to say that it works very well. It is going to make a great addition to my cube at work! The filament used in this print came from Props to for creating this great model. Please support him by buying his Tardis lighting kit here....

Make Your Own 3Doodler Filament

I have been thinking about buying the 3Doodler for a while now. The price of the filament was my only concern. So I decided that trying to make my own was the only option. This is how I made my own. Cut a piece of filament from a spool. It  doesn't seem to matter how long as long as you can get it taught enough. Tape both ends down to a table. Use a heat gun to evenly heat up the filament. Initially the filament will curl. Continue to heat it until it totally relaxes. Wait for it to cool. Snip the ends off with wire cutters and enjoy :)   Malcolm All of my posts use...

Filament joiner for multicoloured prints

I wanted to print some multicolored prints but wasn't sure how. After doing some looking around on the web I found a filament joiner on thingiverse. It used a milled aluminum block and a resistor cemented into a hole using heat resistant cement. This seemed like a lot of work and I don't have a mill so I thought of using a ceramic hair straightener to do the same job. After setting up the straightener with a gap just large enough to fit the filament. I could join the two pieces very easily. When joining the filament make sure the joint does not expand when pushed...

3D Printed Gumball Machine Repaired Using Wood Filler

I printed a copy of this gumball machine from thingiverse. The print took a total of 24hrs. Everything printed correctly until the final minutes. The top layer was not thick enough and holes materialized. For months the printed model sat idle. Then a few days ago I realized that wood filler might be the key to salvaging this print. After a few coats of wood filler and some paint the final result is smooth and looks great. After assembly I realized that the machines hopper was too large. I modeled an insert which in two pieces. You will need to...

Pac-Man Power Pill and Fridge Magnets

These are my copies of the Pac-Man Christmas tree ornaments turned in to fridge magnets. I printed them off then decided to model the missing power pill. After many coats of paint they look fantastic.    The Pac-Man and ghost models are located here. The filament used in this print came from

3D Printed Universal Phone Cradle - Integrated Wireless Charger

I wanted a wireless charging cradle with a steep angle, so I could view the screen while at my desk. Most of the wireless chargers lay flat or at a slight angle. I decided to purchase a cheap wireless charger for $20 and build my own. Phones with a thickness less than 11mm should work fine. Leave a comment if you want a model with a different phone thickness. Here is the wireless charger I purchased. The phone cradle has been modeled to print quickly. My printer managed to...

Harry Potter Gryffindor - Painted Print

This was my first attempt at painting a print. I was really impressed at how it turned out. I used two thick coats of craft paint and two coats of craft varnish on top. The filament used in this print came from

Enclosure External Exhaust and Fan

The fumes from my 3d printer have been getting to me lately. I decided to do something about it and exhaust the fumes to the outside of my house using central vac piping. I added an addional fan as the velocity of the 3d printers fan is not that great. The fan was salvaged from an old space heater. The dimmer switch that I used states the following "General purpose ceiling or paddle fan contraller". The exhaust reducer was 3d modeled and printed on my printer. Just 3mm thick with solid infill. Also when not in use I place an end cap on the piping to prevent any cold air...
