I decided to print the new torture test by Maker’s Muse at .2 clearance. It’s a really fun print and puzzle to solve. I didn’t show the puzzle solution because figuring it out is half the fun.

Build a DIY Motorized Turntable for Photo & Video!

I wanted to improve my b-roll for showing off 3D prints and more detailed items so I decided to build my own turntable with controls for speed and direction. It can run on battery or via USB and the actual turntable portion can easily pop off and be printed in other colors, shapes or sizes.

😸3D Printing & Remixing Cats😸

Cats are great so we should honor them with 3D printed models that they can slowly push off of tables. Let’s take a look at the Low-Poly Cat model by Andrew Sink and some Meshmixer knowledge from Maker’s Muse to create even more angular plastic cats.

Build a NeoPixel Dialer 🌈

Build a NeoPixel Dialer 🌈

I use a lot of NeoPixels in projects and I’m always trying to pick the perfect color for them, whether they’re recieving communications from the Upside Down or bouncing along to music in my computer case. This project allows you to adjust the RGB values of a NeoPixel strip in real time to see exactly which values you need to plug into your code to get certain colors.

3D Printing an Upgraded Spool Holder for the Prusa MK2S

New Prusa i3 MK1 & MK2 Spool Holder V2 – Quick Change by IshmaelPR1: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1768975

The stock spool holder that comes with the Prusa MK2S was getting the job done but I wanted something with a little bit more stability and better compatibility with different sized spools. This spool holder by IshmaelPR1 on Thingiverse is a really awesome design and it’s been serving me well so far. It also makes color swap prints very easy.

I printed in ABS for strength. You do need four 608 skateboard bearings and because of fidget spinner-ageddon there are almost too many varieties of these on Amazon with high variance in quality. Luckily Adafruit has a four pack and that’s what I used: https://www.adafruit.com/product/1178
