Some 3D printed pieces for a rock climbing game prototype I’m working on.
I had to re-flash the firmware of my Printrbot Simple this morning for the second time. It was printing fine last night but when I tried printing this morning I could connect to the printer and move the print head … Continue reading
We’ve got a deadbolt on one of our doors with a locking lever that went missing about a month and a half ago. I haven’t been able to find a replacement lever so I decided to make one. After measuring … Continue reading
I was able to make the tesseract model completely parametric so you can create hypercubes with inner and outer squares of different dimensions. I was also able to clean up the script that generates the model using some new things … Continue reading
It turns out constructing the hypercube from vertexes and extrusions was easier than subtracting cubic areas from the larger solid cube. Since I want the tesseract to be parametric, I first set up my variables for my larger and smaller … Continue reading
I’ve been fooling around today with OpenSCAD, an open source program for creating 3D solid CAD objects that you can export as STL files for 3D printing. Unlike SketchUp Make or Tinkercad, where you create three dimensional models interactively by … Continue reading
My new 3D printer arrived on Friday, 12/13, and I’ve been printing stuff with it ever since. The idea that I can have a device sitting on my desk that will print out three dimensional objects that I design or … Continue reading
Just finished a 3D printing class at the A220 FabLab.
