Great 3d Printing project from Charles Werbick posted up this week in our Community!

Wanted to see how well my homemade mini-kossel kept calibration on larger prints. Decided to print this vase I saw on thingiverse and it turned out very nice!

This was printed using 1.75mm PET+ and took around 24 hours to complete. (This is also only my 3rd print using PET+ which I am REALLY liking as a material so far.)(read more)


Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog

We shared robertd5‘s awesome retirement gift made with Adafruit Audio FX Sound Board this week on the blog:

The Principal of our school retired and as you might imagine he always had some good lines.

So I made the “Ask Rich”, that with the press of a button the advice keeps coming.

The bust is a 3D printed scan of him created using Skanect and the Xbox 360.

The Box is from a Hobby store that has a Lobby.

The on/off switch is one I had laying around. (read more)
