Have you had an MRI? Did you get a copy of the data? Do you have a 3D printer? Great – let’s make you a backup brain in case something happens to your current one. Can also potentially be used to double ones intelligence.
Inspired by old Valmet 901 / 911 forest harvesters this is an attempt to create 3D printed caterpillar tracks which envelop the regular tires of a Konghead RC truck
The track were created in Tinkercad based on an existing design: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/1rrQgXL5KSb-copy-of-copy-of-starting-point-for-tracks
The updated version made for the Konghead can be downloaded from Thingiverse here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4714521
Instructions to create the tracks
- Download the STL from Thingiverse here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4714521
- Print 24 copies of the link design per track
- Use straightened-out paperclips to hold them together (holes for the paperclips are part of the design).
- Melt some filament to close up the holes on either side to keep the paperclip locked in place.
- Note: Leave one link un-sealed so the tracks can be removed if needed.
The holiday season means different things to different people. In this case it means pointing the light ring, which has been aimed toward me during so many Zoom calls, towards something else. May I offer a nice Calabi-Yau manifold in these trying times? Happy holidays everyone!
After finding an unfortunate lizard which had fallen into our garden sink I 3D printed a staircase to allow any future visitors to escape on their own. This is a modified (resized and broadened) version of the staircase here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3147067
This is a 3D printed lamp in the shape of a Minecraft ore block. Powered by an Arduino Uno and four Neopixel LEDs. Model from Thingiverse: link
The button on top will step through different ore types:
- Lapis Lazuli
A final button push will turn it off.
The design on Thingiverse only contained code for RGB LEDs. In case somebody wants to use Neopixel (WS2812B) LEDs instead, the code for this project has been uploaded to Github: https://github.com/jonas-werner/minecraft-ore-lamp
Since the Neopixel LED’s are very bright I made a dome-shaped diffuser of transparent PLA. The sides are made of painted white PLA (brand: Priline) and the “windows” are transparent PLA. To give it some stability and to easily be able to mount / remove from the Arduino I used a prototype board to create a “hat” for the Arduino. That way it can easily be detached if required.
