3D print (and design) an oreo dipper

I just got a kick out of this one. The author goes on how to design and print out your own dipper that you can put ontop of your glass of milk or bowl. https://www.instructables.com/id/Oreo-Dipper-Silly-Solutions/

Convert your 2.5D CNC to a 5 axis

This is a nice build, the author took one of those cheap small Chinese CNC’s and 3D printed the parts needed to make a 5 axis out of it. Me, I like this build, one thing I would do differently … Continue reading

Cool 3D print cat (maybe dog) toy

Nice build, the parts you can 3D print out, and with 2 servos, a laser pointer, and an ESP, you can build one yourself. I could see expanding this build myself. https://www.instructables.com/id/LaserCat/

Make your own Oreo holder

For you mug or cup. This is definitely something to do with kids (while stuck at home and get them into 3D printing) https://www.instructables.com/id/Oreo-Holder/

Nice write up on making a fancy, but old fashion style light sign

The author uses an LED wire and a CNC to cut the path the LED wire follows, and then a template for the “letter” that goes over the top. Nice build overall. https://www.instructables.com/id/Faux-neon-Letters-for-Signs-or-Decoration/

Another nice “light” build for photography with a 3D printed case

The case is nice since it helps line up the strips of LED lights. The author uses RGB lights in the build so they can change the color of the lighting. https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-Pocket-RGB-LED-Light-for-Your-Home-Photo-S/

Interesting LED haloween sign

The base is 3D printed and the author “grinds” the shape/pattern on plexiglass (after printing out a template). INteresting build, I like how it has the battery compartment built in the print.

Nice lowrider CNC

Nice lowrider CNC build (build to do sheets of plywood. It cost the author roughly $650 in materials and parts. https://www.instructables.com/id/Fliptable-LowRider-CNC/ https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3026040

Another CDROM CNC build

This build is a bit interesting, as it uses the base of the original CDROM, but the Y is a 3D printed part with the motor. I like the Y and Z part of this build, may have to save … Continue reading

Business card embosser

Interesting build, basically you 3D print your design, then roll a business card thru it to make an indention design on the paper. https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Business-Card-Embosser-System/
