Misc 3D Prints

A photographic collection of objects that I 3D printed using my FDM and SLA 3D printers at home for various projects and for fun. Most of these prints were created using 3D models downloaded from the web (Thingiverse). Digital models reference link: https://www.thingiverse.com/nonaym/collections/photo-gallery-ref

3D Ponics Shelf

Custom built shelving system using ceramic pot drip nozzles and lots of other 3D printed parts. I had to test a few different sizes (scaling) of the drip nozzles until I found a good fit, but once I did, they seem to be working perfectly. Thanks to 3dprintler for sharing his 3D Ponics designs!! 3D …

For “Fun-ctionality”

Early last year (2017) I felt the urge to create a design that would take advantage of the full print volume of one of my larger format FDM 3D printers. I decided to challenge myself with designing a fully 3D printable table lamp that would not require any support material to print, and could have …

Dry Erase Pinup Cap

I designed this for a You3Dit.com request. I referenced the cap design/dimensions from kielerrr’s Fast-Draw Cap Marker Holder on Thingiverse, bought an EXPO dry erase maker to measure and test with, and created this cap that can be pinned to the wall, bulletin boards, pin boards, etc. NOTE: As @kielerrr mentioned in the comments section …

Upgrades II

In an effort to improve cooling of prints and prevent curling/warping of parts, I also decided to design my own fan shroud that could direct air blown by the layer fan more precisely at the hotend where filament is being extruded onto the print. The images below show a wireframe view of my fan shroud …

Custom Lampshade

I designed this lampshade for a You3Dit request which the customer was trying to duplicate the look of some existing lampshades, while changing the overall shape to this tall elongated version.

Upgrades I

In an effort to improve the usability of one of my FDM 3D printers, I decided it was time to implement an “automatic bed-leveling system.” To do so, I needed to design a custom bracket to mount a proximity sensor to the print-head carriage. The images below show a wireframe view of my ABL Sensor …

B3 Innovations Pico Extruder fan shrouds for Type A Machines Series 1

I wanted to improve my prints after upgrading the hotend on my Type A Machines Series 1, so I took some elements from a couple other fan shrouds found on Thingiverse and customized them into fan shrouds that fit the B3 Innovations Pico Extruder as mounted in my Type A Machines 2014 Series 1 (G1). …

SSD Stackers

While working as a “Jack-of-all-IT,” I was building a high-end workstation for a client, but I was unable to fit all of the data drives they wanted into the computer case the system was being built into. My solution was to design a special bracket that I call the SSD Stacker which allowed for two …

Brita Everyday Water Pitcher Spout Flap Replacement

This is a replacement flap that I slapped together for older Brita Everyday Water Pitchers (I think they removed the flap on newer models). It helps prevent dust and other debris from entering the filtered water chamber. This was one of the first things I designed and printed with my first home 3D printer!
