    A thread for random prints. Not really for project cases and such, just random memes I guess. Post what you want though, I'm not your real Dad.

    I printed these Playstation Video Game Holder Bookends for my Vita Collection. 60% size (due to the smaller cases as opposed to PS4) and added in some Navy for color contrast.

    First try didn't work so well lol.

    Complete! Not that I'm using them as such lol.

    Not my design but I spent a few weeks printing off this Chess set my brother's birthday.
    He and I used to compete in tournaments when we were younger and I thought he would enjoy it.

    Both the board and the pieces were printed off.

    My snowblower requires a small plastic key to be in place to run the motor. Pull out the key and the engine dies. As I was removing the white, fluffy bull crap from my driveway yesterday it occurred to me how miserable I would be if that key ever got lost, so I spent an hour or so drafting up a replacement in Fusion. It's not a 100% perfect replica, but the snowblower apparently couldn't tell the difference.

    Wanted another small project to practice my 3D modelling. Decided to reshell my GBC GameShark since my original had some plastic chipped off of it.

    This design went through 3 iterations before I was really happy with it. Fits like a glove.

    I trimmed out some internal space, making the "head" narrower than the original. The body had to be pretty much 1:1 since it has to fit into a Gameboy.

    I'm too lazy to sand down most of my prints. If this was something like a full-fledged portable, I would put in more effort. Probably.

    Edit: Attached .stl files.

    MORE PRINTS

    I found a Pokeball SD card holder on Thingiverse and got really excited to have a cool, somewhat practical desk decoration. Unfortunately, it was severely lacking in its features.

    For one, it's kind of bland. But most notably, the two halves don't close together. It's literally just two sphere halves that sit on top of each other. Also, the slots for holding the cards were all too small. I printed at 105% size, but it was still too tight for some of my cards.

    Weak Pokeball model. Frozone for scale.

    I still wanted that cool Pokeball for my desk, so I went ahead and redesigned a better Pokeball.

    New Pokeball features black trim (printed separately and glued in place), slightly larger slots that hold my cards nicely (with the exception of one of the micro slots, but I blame the $200 printer, not the model), and a hinge system so the top opens, closes, and actually stays in place.
    thumbnail_IMG_2369.jpg
    $200 printer also apparently doesn't do well with sphere underbelly.

    In case anyone wants to print one of these, I've attached the STL files for the 3 separate colors. The top of the ball is the only piece I printed with supports. If you do print one of these, please share!

    (I realized that this would be a really cool nerdy engagement ring holder. Unfortunately, my wife isn't into Pokemon. If anyone is interested, I could modify the design to hold a ring.)

    We should just call this the Fibbef thread tbh

    Does that latch work? so like you have to press the button to open actually open it? or is it just open close

    If only. But I decided I didn't want to engineer that much and then figure out a way to actually get it to print. There's a little notch on the back of the "button" that helps hold the top in place and that's it. I'm pretty pleased with the way the hinge turned out though.

    At this point, I guess pretty much. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Got another print of my own design: display cases for Gameboy and Gamegear cartridges. I didn't care for the GB display cases I found on Thingiverse because they tend to lean toward a "stadium seating" design with the labels facing outward. While this is pretty, it seemed to me like it wastes a lot of space. But I needed something better than lining my loose games up in a box or drawer.

    20190726_104851.jpg

    Came up with a design that is the same size as a standard DVD case, so I can line my games up nicely next to my disc-based games.

    20190726_105009.jpg

    The GB case holds up to 6 games while GG holds 4. Went with a crosshatch pattern to try to cut down the amount of filament used. In the end, it's still quite a bit, but the payoff of no longer having a messy GB collection is worth it to me. The GG games do stick out on the end by ~6mm, but I can live with that.

    The white and colored faceplates are printed out separately. This is so A) I can print the GB/GG name directly onto the faceplate and B) I can pop off the white labels and rearrange them as needed without peeling off the paper label that I stuck on.

    My car was clearly made to be a Decepticon. So I made it official.

    I also printed an Autobot one for my buddy, who has it on his truck hitch thingamajigger. One of these days there will be an epic droid deathmatch between our two vehicles.

    Who here is also a fan of Cosmic Horror? H. P. Lovecraft? Doing something inventive for the 12+ hour endurance test on your new 3D printer? This is the result after a few coats of paint. The print could have been better, but I had to move the printer a few times and it threw things around a little. Still, very impressed with the end results. It stands about 150mm tall.

    is that with any post processing? are there any noticable print lines? looks really nice

    I had to fill in some gaping holes which were caused by me moving the printer during the print, but aside from that I just painted it. There's a couple layers of paint and clearcoat but I've been really surprised with the quality of this knock-off printer actually. It's also pretty large so you don't see issues until your nose is right up against it. It's a really nice model too - available on thingverse :)
