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 girlfriend was pregnant and I wanted to 3D scan her big belly before it was too late. 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.
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
For the Asteroid X pinball game I will design all the playfield parts myself and make the pieces game specific. There will be plastic crystal parts which will act as both covers and decorations, but I will also design specific standard parts like flippers, posts and covers etc. Continue reading DIY Pinball Playfield Items
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
I haven’t been able to put away the BottleBot idea and have 3D printed some of the parts for the robot and conveyor belt and ordered most of the components. I have most of what I need to start coding and functional testing. Continue reading BottleBot Prototype Building
Lots of cheap solenoids can be found online, but can they be used in an Arduino Pinball game? This post is part of my Arduino Pinball Project, and I test out cheap solenoids and print out some basic flippers to try out the designs.
