Thingiverse - Newest Derivatives


Because i really like the original design, but wanted to switch over to a leadscrew driven Z-Axis i remixed these parts to fit the 8mm leadscrews that are available on eBay.

The distance from the center of the Z-Rod to the center of the leadscrew is 17mm (i think Prusa original distance).
The mounting holes for the Motor are switched to the back, so the motor can be mounted on the front.
And overall i made the part on most of the sides 1mm smaller.

I didn't mount it yet, but the first testprints seem to be good and don't need further modifications. So, feel free to test it. As soon as i have mounted the parts, photos will follow.

Wanhao Duplicator i3 Magnetic Tool Holder

This is still an untested part. Designed to fit a 12mm x 5mm magnet and attach to the two holes at the top of the gantry.

Who ya gonna call...2

Well here it is, the worlds first, fully 3D printable Ghostbuster's proton pack. There are 3 parts missing that others have already created, so there seemed little point in duplication. It's missing the synch generator details, but these will be posted asap.


All the files are available on Thingiverse.

Réparation son et contraste vidéo remplacement de condensateurs d’une GameGear – CondoCrado – Ep159

Cette semaine, l’ami Fabrice qui est un amateur de brocante viens dans ma grotte avec des GameGear, la fameuse console portable de Sega de notre enfance pour tenter de réparer le son un peu faiblard et le contraste vidéo un peu merdique… et on va déssouder et ressouder pleins de condensateurs, ça va être rigolo.

Flattr this!

Who Ya Gonna Call?

My wife and I have been invited to a 50th birthday party in February, but it's fancy dress....Movie Style. And she wants to go as a Ghostbuster.

This does of course mean that I'm going to have to make us a proton pack each:

Now I could buy a kit, but these start at around £500.

So, it's time to fire up the 3D printer and the CAD system.
There are excellent plans available online at the GBFans website. But these are traditional 2D drawings, and not suitable for 3D printing.

There are some partial parts available on Thingiverse...

But none of these are either full kits, or have the 'difficult' parts missing. So I decided that I'd have a go at making a fully 3D printable kit. The first thing was to make a CAD model of the pack from the 2D drawings.

From this I made each part printable. For example, the Crank Generator is split into top and bottom sections as it is a wide, tall part that would be rather wasteful of plastic if printed in one piece:

This is one of the largest parts I have printed. It came out pretty good in white ABS in my heated print chamber:

Another interesting part is the 'spinner' on top of the crank generator. These are large potentiometer style knobs from the '70s with the part number MS91528-3S2G.

Almost totally unavailable in the UK. So from limited 2D drawings online, I modelled and printed it:

Another old part is this PH25 can style resistor:

And after printing:

This is still a work in progress, and there are several more parts before it will be complete. I'm putting all the parts onto thingiverse as I go along.

All the parts are available here.
