This is a simple birdfeeder for smaller birds.
Printing this is fairly simple. I have used a layer height of 0.25mm and it cam out decent. You can try to print it in one piece by flipping around the whole model. When I tried, I did not use a wide enough brim so it came loose from the build platform. Since I was in a bit of a hurry I quickly created a split version, which is way easier to print. I used supports for the brim of the little roof but I guess if you use a high enough resolution you might get away without supports.
For the perch rod use something with 10mm diameter. I used a piece of anodized aluminium.
Have fun and flip some birds.
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!
