Walk in rat/mouse feeder #adafruit #3DThursday #3DPrinting


zekitez shares:

After discovering some rats in the video of the wildcam I create this “Walk in rat feeder”.

Because I had some left-over PVC tube I only needed an end cap. But you can 3d print a full 20-25 cm version if you want. The end cap is perforated but by setting Perforation diameter to zero its fully closed. I use 20-25 cm of PVC tube with a diameter of 80 mm.

The feeder is checked almost every day. The feeder location is changed about every 2 weeks but only when the ‘food’ is not eaten for some 2-3 days. The food ‘smell’ is changed by using some peanut butter or cherry jam but always with ‘anti rat wheat’ on top. Untill today birds seem to ignore this feeder.

If the customizer does not work in the browser then download the scad file and try it in OpenScad.

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!
