Printing items from Thingiverse site.

This is a Trafalmadorian from the Vonnegut stories.  Printed in medium resolution at 50% scale. This is going to be a little gift to someone that likes the book Slaughterhouse five.

And of course everyone needs a Ninja Throwing Spork.

This was a skull with separate mandible, had to support it with a raft and support because the print kept failing without it.  Even at 50% scale it used more plastic than anything else I have printed.  It also took 7 hours and 19 minutes to print. Everyone needs this in order to perform Shakespeare’s plays.  Alas poor Yorrick.

One of the primary reasons to have a 3D printer is to make things to assist your other projects.  This is a case that holds a raspi board and attaches to the back of a monitor.  The cover clips in very tightly and looks good.


I also printed snowflakes and yoda figures for my nieces.  They were completely mesmerized by the machine.  The oldest one demanded a star wars chess set before next year.  Going to make a doll house for them this year and print out a bunch of plastic furniture for the doll house.

Planning on printing a few other micro computer cases this week. Will have to change filament for the first time very soon.

Everyone one have fun printing!
