3D print some puck corner clamps

Clever build for a corner clamp, as long as both boards are the same thickness. Only issue I see is that you would pretty much have to do a 80% or more fill on the puck to allow for decent … Continue reading

Another neat CDROM CNC build

This one is pretty simple, and the z axis is all 3D printed. It looks pretty sharp. https://www.instructables.com/3D-Printed-Mini-CNC-Machine/

Interesting 3D printed Biology projects

The project, Poseidon project by California Institute of Technology, has som e pretty cool builds. It includes a 3D printed digital microscope, and a 3D printed syringe pump. They use arduino’s for controllers.

Nice write up on a CNC buil

The author used a kit called the ARCO Openbuilds CNC, which seems to be a pre prepped kit for the hardware part of the CNC, but you have to put it together, and add in the drill/laser/etc etc. Interesting build … Continue reading

3D print an exhaust filter for 3M masks

I ironically have one of these masks, mostly for shop work, but I like the adapter build I can add onto it so the exhaust filter can be used. https://www.instructables.com/3M-Respirator-Exhaust-Valve-Filter/

3D printed LED crank light

Pretty clever build, author is using a stepper motor which I thought was a bit odd. But hey, whatever works. My 2 cents, worthwhile build if you have the parts, but I would not go out and buy the stuff … Continue reading

Sharp looking CDROM to CNC build

Most of these builds are, well pretty ugly, this one is pretty clean and seems to be more accurate than most other CDROM to CNC builds. I did learn how you can now get an arduino nano with CNC shield … Continue reading
