    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.

    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.

    $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.
