Re: Fridge Magnets

Thought this was rather cool - a poseable fridge magnet: 2016-04-02 15.52.13.jpg This shows most of the magnets I've printed (some I've given away, others have had their magnets extracted and been retired): 2016-04-02 15.50.09.jpg The model for the skeleton is a remix of an existing one - details fo...

Re: The Doodatable

Well, I screwed up during the gluing stage :) - now decided to glue before printing, but it leaves me with a small problem - how the heck do I reliably make Bender's butt shiny? :D Provisionally posted to http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1444236 with two sample models and the (optional) connectors f...

Re: The Doodatable

No - I've never even heard of it :).

Looks quite expensive to get over here in Belgium (pack of 3 from amazon $17 + $15 shipping and import duty).

Re: The Doodatable

Thanks :) but can't claim all the credit on that one - it was one of the guys at my local hackerspace who first mentioned it. Kinda having fun with this one, though it is a very simple one to make. This is the doodatable in use after a first coat: doodatable-bender-2-hd.jpg And this is the doodatabl...

The Doodatable

One of many projects on the go at the moment - this one is called The Doodatable: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wup0f4j4pdmnbi1/doodatable-bender.jpg?dl=1 The motivation came from my attempts to spray paint Bender with a chrome finish - it was painted pre-assembly like: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6zlin31...

Re: Parametric Female/Female Pin Connector

Having learnt a bit from the above, I've extended the script to provide: * a means to clamp a component (by adding clamping walls - you need to specifiy a non-zero length for them to become visible) * added a means to cut holes on the sides to allow wires to be inserted such that they touch the pins...

Re: Surface Mounted Push Buttons

Thanks for the suggestions. The filament certainly sounds interesting - will have to see if I can source some of that :). I've kinda left the button thing for now and am focussing on a couple of other (parametric) components - battery holder and a solderless approach to wiring up the switch and that...
