3D print your own hands free soap dispenser

I got a kick out of this one. basically its a simple plunger based build for a hands free soap dispenser. Uses an ardiuno, servo, and ultra sonic sensor. https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-Automatic-Soap-Dispenser-3D-Printed–1/

3D print a tumbler

Great way to sand objects. The author designed the parts to 3D print out and make your own tumbler. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4076827

Cool CNC plotter robot arm build

Nice build, the author laser cuts all the parts and uses 3 cheap servos to power it. Pretty nice looking build https://www.instructables.com/id/SCARA-Robot-Learning-About-Foward-and-Inverse-Kine/

A ball bearing pick and place machine

The author designed and printed out a robot arm with vacuum to move ball bearings around. Neat build and is more for the classroom than practical purposes.

Wine bottle engraving CNC

Nice build. The author basically build a CNC engraver for bottles. it can also draw and convert to a standard CNC. You can 3D print the parts from here: https://www.thingiverse.com/make:374703

Cool robot automated eye build

The author uses a couple of cheap servos, an ardiuno, and a 3D printer to make simple eyes that can move around on there own.

Nice skittles sorter

The parts are 3D printed out. Its a pretty compact sorter and works well from the video. It uses an arduino for the controller.

Cool infinity mirror

Also doubles as a clock. This was alot of work for the author, I wonder if he could have simplified a few steps. https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-an-Infinity-Mirror-Clock/

Cool servo tester

It provides the angle of rotation while you use a pot to change it. Nice build overall. The color display is also pretty cheap now these days ($3). Something I may need to keep in mind for the future. https://www.instructables.com/id/Servo-Tester-2/
