After not finding a purge bucket for my sigma which I liked, to replace the metal stock buckets which rattle, I decided to create my own.
This was heavily influenced by another design from another site – however it did not print well, it had mesh errors for me which I couldn’t fix, I couldn’t even open the STL in Solidworks due to the many problems with it. Printing it came out semi-OK, however it did not fit the printer, and even things like the slot for the rubber, did not fit for me. So I decided to use it as a reference, but build a new part from scratch in Solidworks. So referencing the other design for those reasons.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
