Electric cars are a big thing in Norway and charging stations can be found all over the country. I have designed mini charging stations for phones or cameras that can be 3D printed. Continue reading Phone Charger Models

My idea was to go beyond a typical photo and make a small sculpture of her to remember this special time in life. It’s been a quick learning curve, but the results so far are amazing! I’m using an Xbox Kinect to scan objects and people, edit the 3D models in Meshmixer and 3D print them.

CR-10 Silent: New fans, vibration dampers and design upgrades

I recently bought a Creality CR-10-S4 3D printer and one of my first priorities was to make the machine silent so I could work in the same room as the printer. This work included installation of vibration dampers on the stepper motors, changing stock fans and redesigning certain components on the CR-10.   Continue reading CR-10 Silent: New fans, vibration dampers and design upgrades

Arduino Pinball – targets

This project is part of my Arduino Pinball adventure where I’m learning Arduino programming while having fun building parts for a pinball game. The pinball targets in this projects is what you would call “drop targets” in traditional pinball games. The ball knocks out targets one by one to get score and eventually a bonus when all targets are down. Continue reading Arduino Pinball – targets
