For 3D designing I use Blender software. It’s free, not too complicated and offers many options for 3D designing. At the beginning I used it for creating 3D animated models for different purposes – from animated logos to short animated movies. Later I found it can be great tool for 3D printing – designing models from scratch or tweak models created by other authors. For model slicing I usually use Cura slicer.
Little calendar house
One of my first designs. Simple and not to big. It’s just for hang my daily calendar block in appropriate place.
OK, now we know basics – let’s try something similar but a little more complicated. It must be strong enough to hold a speaker, have fittings for attachment screws…
Battery storage box.
Now, we can play a little with shapes and dimensions. Box has slots for different batteries: AA, AAA, 9V block and even for some button batteries. Finally I have all spare batteries in one place.
Spool holder adapter
I have nice spool holder now, but my printer is placed on very inconvenient place, and spool can’t be on a top. So I’ve created adapter for placing filament spool on left side of the printer.
Just to see if outside is windy 🙂
Wind direction and wind speed gauges have a small metal ball bearings inside for smoother action.
Housing for electronic component tester
I bought electronic component tester from China. Works fine, but it came without housing, so I made one by my own.
Dsedoldering pump raplacement cap
Spare cap for deoldering pump. 3D model can be downloaded at Thingiverse.
