I created this Hay Feeder for my daughter’s Guinea Pig as the feeder that came with the cage was pretty useless with hay falling out all over the floor.
No supports are needed to print this feeder, but you will have to print two separate pieces and then assemble it using CA glue to secure the pieces in place. Be gentle when install the top onto the base pillars as it is meant to be somewhat of a tight fit. I also placed the CA glue in each notch located on the top so that no CA would be assessable by her Guinea Pig if she decided to chew on the feeder.
Update Jan03, 2021-
I added longer stabilizer legs(V2 Hay Feeder only, you still will need to print the top out as well) for the Hay Feeder, as the my daughter’s Pig kept pushing it over, hopefully this will keep it vertical now. If anyone else prints, please leave a comment whether this works or not.
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!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
