Some of the selected prints are mailed out to users free of charge. I have attached some of the prints that have already gone out. Other nights we have a guess the print competition where users watch the live stream and try to guess what the object is before it's completed. We are one of the first Meerkat users to use the service like this and a lot of users like it. Come and join us live 9:30 EST

Tardis Motion Sensor Alarm

I had a motion sensor for a security system kicking around for a long time. After seeing the Dr Who Tardis model on Thingiverse. I thought the sensor would work well to active a LED in the model. After printing off the Tardis and transplanting the electronics in to it. I would have to say that it works very well. It is going to make a great addition to my cube at work!

The filament used in this print came from http://www.ORDSolutions.com Props to charlesworth-dynamics.com for creating this great model. Please support him by buying his Tardis lighting kit here.

Feel free to leave me any questions or comments below and I'll get back to you.

Thanks,

3D Printer External Exhaust and Fan

The fumes from my 3d printer have been getting to me lately. I decided to do something about it and exhaust the fumes to the outside of my house using central vac piping.

I added an addional fan as the velocity of the 3d printers fan is not that great. The fan was salvaged from an old space heater. The dimmer switch that I used states the following "General purpose ceiling or paddle fan contraller". The exhaust reducer was 3d modeled and printed on my printer. Just 3mm thick with solid infill.

Also when not in use I place an end cap on the piping to prevent any cold air from entering the house from the outside.

The filament used in this print came from ORDSolutions.com/div>
