My 3D print designs.

A selection of 3D prints that I have designed.  They have been printed on a CEL Robox printer.


 

The basic LEGO figure can be adapted to almost any character. I found that the filament colour here vritually matched that of a Cadbury chocolate wrapper. So it was a short step to create my own CadburyMan.

A fairly easy pinball maze using a 4mm diameter miniature marble. It measures 94mm outer diameter so it can be hand-held without difficulty. The marble rolls very freely on the printed ABS plastic.

A small shallow bowl that has the features of an eagle cut out. This is the CAD file prior to 3D printing.

A 3D printed night light using LED lighting. The design is influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright and Charles Rennie Macintosh. The sides clip together but just rest on the base with the cover also just resting on top.

3D printed cookie cutter and press of a heart shape with 'Mr Love' printed into the biscuit dough. This is a 3D translation of the 2D graphic that is shown elsewhere on this site. It now means that what used only to be possible in injection molding on a commercial level, is now achievable at home. Any 2D image can be converted into a 3D solid plastic object within a matter of hours.

A variation of the Mr Love cookie cutter and press, which produces an outline of the words instead of pressing them into the biscuit dough.

Instead of the traditional flying geese across the living room wall, I decided to go for seagulls as I live on the coast. My intention is fit a flock of these across the garden fence. The 3D print is restricted by the size of the printer bed, so I'm having to work out how to section this and peg it together at a much larger size.

A set of three variations of retaining clips designed to fit 5mm thick foamboard in model-making, by holding sections in position after applying glue (PVA) and waiting for it to set. They can also be used to hold the sections together without glue in order to check that everything is right in the model. The clips are very small and the walls are just 1mm thick and each is 10mm high. The retaining part in each that holds the foamboard is 15mm long. A combination of all three clips should cover all junctions in a model. You can get the .stl files from here

I get so many cardboard packaging boxes with stuff I order online that I have found them very useful as storage boxes. So I have recycled many by using them to put pencils in, craft hand tools, felt-tip pens, etc. Since I require frequent access and don't want to seal the boxes, I have 3D printed a sliding clip that holds the longest flaps together. So the box is closed but not stuck - I simply slide the clips off when I want to get to the contents. You can get the .stl files from here
