Thingiverse Thursday

This weeks Thingiverse Thursday is a bit sad for me since I had hoped to be able to join in the printing fun this week.  At this point I still haven't been able to get the Y-Axis of my bot to come alive.   Makerbot support got back to me as I was writing this let me know I should check for bad solder joints, that this is my most likely issue.  If it doesn't work after a resolder job they said they can RMA it, which is awesome of them.  So hopefully one way or another next Thursday will see me printing, so on to our things:

 

Now the first thing isn't a printable it's a laser cut piece:

War of The Worlds Playset

War of The Worlds Playset

 

This is a snap out War Of the Worlds Playset by user WindhamGraves.  As a lover of Science Fiction, and tabletop wargames I simply love this.  When I finally build my laser cutter this will be one of the first things I make.

(While I was writing this I just saw this derivation by user DrewPetitclerc.  It's a 3d printable version of the above, so I'll be interested to see a printed form of that.)

Second up this week we have a tape dispenser:

Tape Dispenser

Tape Dispenser

This cool little thing, is by user jag and I dig it.  I've somehow tend to break scotch tape holders, so having this one around might be nice.

Finally we have this:

Dr Who

Dr Who

This is actually two different cookie cutters by user dgwilson.  One is of a Dalek, the other of a Tardis.  Both seem to cut and imprint some lovely cookie shapes.

That's my three picks for this week, next week I hope to be able to print my three picks for the week.

Thingiverse Thursday

 

Planet Express Ship

First up this awesome multi-part Planet Express ship.  It was created  by thingiverse user UpUpandAway, and looks pretty snazzy.

Buckle for overalls

Buckle for overalls

Next up this excellent plastic buckle, from thingiverse user Valter.   I'll be quite excited to print this to replace a damaged buckle on my Go Bag.

 

Break Loom

Break Loom

This next one is a yarn knotting loom from a user whose other works I've really liked 3dYeti. Pretty cool, I've used a nifty knitter before, but this is way cooler since it's modular.

Thingiverse Thursday

For Thursday lets do a quick round up of some of the cool things I've seen over at Thingiverse this week.  Thingiverse of course is a site that allows users to upload, and share things that they have made.  These can be 3d models to be printed on a 3d printer, laser cutter patterns, or sewing patterns etc etc...   It's a place to share designs of "things" and it's a wonderful place to spend a lunch break.  Anywhere here are my favorite things of the week:

 

First off we have something that I can't wait to print, and spend some time weathering.

Tarbosaurus skull

This is by thingiverse user gpvillamil and it's awesome.  It's the top half of the skull of a Tarbosaurus, and it just looks rad.  Once I get my maker bot I'll be printing this, cleaning it up and using some painting techniques to weather it, I'll look awesome mounted on my cubicle wall.

 

Next something I plan on printing for my 40k army.

Imperial Guard Leman Russ Tank

Leman Russ Tank

The Leman Russ was 3dYeti and is a excellent looking model.  I'll be quite excited by this one since it combines my love of table top and my love of 3d printing.

 

In the same vein as above we have:

 

Imperial Guard Sentinel

Imperial Guard Sentinel

 

The Sentinel was also created by 3dYeti and I'm looking forward to printing this one as well.  Amazing work on both model 3dYeti, I'll be sure to post my own images once they are printed.

 

That's the round up for this week, I'll have more of my favorites next week.
