Another cool sand plotter

I can’t remember if I mentioned this one before. But still a cool build. He used the remains of a 3D printer he had to build it.

Another interesting Drawbot

This one does not use gravity, its an interesting build with most of the parts are 3D printed out. Not so sure if I would put this one on the list (take too long to print everything out). I do … Continue reading

Pool beverage delivery system

Bit of an old article, but still can be made today, basically its a boat that you can RC control to deliver food and drinks to swimmers. For some reason I was looking into this stuff this weekend.

Nice 3D printed Hydroponic tower

Nice build. Not so sure I would do it myself, some of the Aerogarden clones are coming down alot in price and maybe an easier setup. https://www.instructables.com/DESKTOP-HYDROPONIC-TOWER/
