#3DxMechanicals – triple helix for the home printer by gathem #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Guest Curator Emmett Lalish has this to say about this 3DxMechanicals project: “As usual, I just can’t get enough of gears. This is a great counterintuitive showpiece. I also really appreciate that they took the time to design a version we could all print.”
HenrySeg builds incredible 3d objects. I found this creation on youtube and he was kind enough to upload it to thingiverse.
However it was not designed to be printed at home. The files were also not to scale. So I scaled the pieces, broke them down into 3 files: box, box lid, and screw so that it could be printed on a home printer.
This was printed at .3 layer height, 100% fill, at 100m/s with full supports.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
