Dragon Egg Box #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Hagrid wishes he came across a dragon egg like this…

Needs a bit of cleaning with a knife after printing.

Screw the the mid ring into the top. Twist it a few times so it’s not stuck (if too hard push the ring against something non-splippery like concrete and twist. This holds it strongly and evenly.

With the mid ring in place on the top, glue it to the bottom with cyanoacrylate (superglue) then BEFORE IT DRIES turn the top clockwise till the top and bottom pattern aligns. This way the patterns will match when the egg is closed.

Building Harry Potter Spectre Specs by @PurpleOranji #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Another stellar project from Purple Oranji on YouTube:

I’m a superfan of the Harry Potter universe. One of my favorite characters is Luna Lovegood. One of the things she has in the movie were are pair of Spectre Specs that came with every copy of the Quibbler.

In this project, I wanted to create my own version of the Spectre Specs. To create the lens effect, I used a technique that created an infinity mirror in each eye.

It is based on the Adafruit NEOpixel goggles, a kit that I I had built earlier.

I modeled and 3d printed a few parts to create the specs.

Overall this was a very easy project but I still learned a lot of new techniques and also learned more about the Arduino code.

Hope you like it 🙂

Rounded triangular case #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Shared via fdavies on Thingiverse.

I needed a little box to hold an encoder, a switch and two LEDs. This starts out with an stl file (actually 2 in different sizes) of a distorted torus generated in Mathematica. I then imported them into openscad to add the mounting surfaces and holes.

I have added a top with no holes in case you want to add your own.

Shared by maker_101 on Thingiverse

This is a 3D printed Micro:bit box.
It has a battery case holder (you glue the battery case to the holder), a hole for the LEDs and it is little bit larger then the original Toms design so you can push the Micro:bit inside and it wont fall out. The design has a reset button on the bottom, holes for power supply and programm uploder.

Micro:bit is intended for education for children and older. You can learn programming a Micro:bit into a dice, compas, game, watch, …
Learn more on: http://microbit.org/

This is printed with PLA on RepRap Prusa with 0.15mm layer height, 0.4mm nozzle on extruder temperature – 220C, and no heated bed.

This is a remix of the Tom”s BBC micro:bit shell (thing:1692680).

Remix Adafruit ESP8266 WiFi Weather Station #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Shared by J_T_3_D via Thingiverse

This is a remix of: http://ift.tt/2CQPp1Q

The case is slightly larger because the recommended battery is hard to obtain here in Germany (or may be Europe). The one that I found is slightly larger with the following measurements: 65mm x 40mm x 6,3mm
So I grabbed the original files and changed the dimensions to fit the battery that is available here: http://ift.tt/2FaNURt

While I was at it, I also added a wall mount where the weather station can be dropped in easily.

Thanks to Adafruit for this great project!
