SHARK TABLECARDS

Recently my son has had this facination about sharks, so when he wanted a shark-themed birthday his mother and i decided to make custom seating arrangement cards that all of his friends could take with them when they left the party. When scouring the internet for a suitable shark 3d model i came across this model on thingiverse by the user XYZWorkshop. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:192007 Since i recently got a Form 1+ 3d printer i...

LASERCUT MAP OF BERGEN

I have always loved the look of lasercut maps, so ofcource when i got my own lasercutter i had to make one of my hometown Bergen, Norway. The map is made up of 2 layers frosted acrylic. Bottom layer is the outline of land. Top layer is the roads. The cavity represents water. It is a very tidious process of tracing a map to get the dxf file that is needed to lasercut. You can see in the gallery to the left what i used as a reference....

WATER SENSOR

This is a simple sensor for detecting water. This is a project that i made for someone at work, that needed a water-sensor for detecting leaks from washing machines.

The sensor itself is made up of two paralell wires and a 1 Mohm resistor, so when water comes between the...

SPRING LOADED EXTRUDER

After a while my Makerbot Replicator 1 Dual had become unreasonably unreliable. I got frequent air-prints, in fact almost every time. There is a well known fact that the delrin plunger design Makerbot came up with, is a bad design. After a fair amount of use the plunger gets worn out and does no longer make the tight fit that the filament need to be extruded properly. On thingiverse there is a spring loaded design that is much better...

CLASH OF CLANS BARBARIAN KING

This was a fun little project i made for my son. He really wanted me to print one of the characters from the game Clash Of Clans. A quick google search led me to http://www.myminifactory.com/object/barbarian-king-clash-of-clans-871which contained a 3D model of the “barbarian king” from the game. Ricardo Alves from the UK made this 3D file, and all credit goes to him for the downloadable (and not to mention FREE) character....
