    This is really awesome! Good luck to everyone.

    • Farmbot26

      I made an iPod Nano model for the contest. It’s not real but it’s really detailed. (Little clips in the plugs, camera, etc.) If you have a makerbot you could make it and swap it with a real one as a prank or pretend to have a real one or something I guess. I’m just hoping I win cause my family could never afford a makerbot. Here’s the link: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2578 If I don’t win I hope someone deserving does. Good luck everyone!

      Need a box for Revar’s excellent LCD Display and Keypad mod? Here’s a printable one!

      This is a MakerBott printable experiment in using different $fn values in OpenSCAD to selectively control the “roughness” of the geometry on different parts. The $fn of the outside of the box is set to 3, while all the holes and openings are set to 60. This gives an overall edgy look to the part without sacrificing functional precision.

      I really like the ability to combine a lo-fi trash-punk look yet maintain precision where it’s needed in a printable part. I will definitely be exploring this aesthetic further!

      More info on Revar’s LCD mod: wiki.makerbot.com/revarlcd-assembly

      This is exactly what I would print with a maker bot. Its a modular mini fishing rod. The bright colors are used to show the different parts of the rod assembly. I decided to make it modular so it could be printed in pieces. I believe this could be quite a trendy printable tool.

    • teamteamusa

      Should an entry shackled with an All Rights Reserved license win the Cupcake?

      I’m just sayin’…

      Make: with Love!

      =ml=

      • ben c bond

        I definitely agree. This was my first time posting anything on thingiverse.com and wasn’t sure how to set the licensing. I’ve found it, now Mini Rod is Opensource. Mini Rods For Everyone!!!

        • CafeT

          Not only does the contest give no details on license, but Thingiverse doesn’t require such. 3D printers, even when open source, are presumably intended to enable people to manufacture things themselves. Some people need to make a living and can’t find a way to do that by giving away anything they design.

          Don’t get me wrong, I like open design licenses. One of my posts, however, isn’t a useful object so much as an artistic design, which, not being a stock photo, doesn’t really need to be open source. It’s like writing a newspaper article or making a painting, though I wouldn’t claim to have such merit.

  • rastagandalf

    What I’d like to see is an iPhone case, maybe even with different colours of plastic and a back with e.g. the emblem of your favourite band on it or something. would be kinda cool and very personal. Only you will have an iPad case like this ! :)

  • thebigcheese

    I don’t have any fancy ideas, but I often find myself wishing I had a custom piece of plastic–a project enclosure, a shim, just random things. The Shapelock would be great for most of my purposes, actually…

  • Philip Lexow

    I’d like to make a puzzle in the theme of M.C. Escher.
    A cube that ‘intersects’ itself. It would be somewhat of an optical illusion as it depends on your perspective for it to work.

  • JohnA

    Created today, for this contest. Beware of my truly amateur SketchUp skills.

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2206

  • krux

    Siffy! A makerbot would be a good addition to the local vegas dorkbot chapter.

    I’m in the process of building a RepRap, so I designed and printed this part to make use of a makerbot style plastruder on a RepRap.

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2061

  • krux

    And here is my design for a project box. At 100mm in length it’s at the maximum size that the makerbot can print. The box was designed to be wall mounted, though that isn’t strictly a requirement.

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1949

  • qwertyboy

    Here is a 24 tooth drive sprocket I drew up for the contest. It’s a SketchUp file FYI.

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2210

  • John

    I have several ideas….so far.

    #1: A clear bottle, with a full sized pear in it, and in the center of the pear is rectangle cut all the way through. In the rectangle is a ball and stick model of sucrose “floating” in the space.

    #2: If at all possible to fab in metal, a single chain link around a 1/3″ diameter metal rod that has ends that are 2″ diameter; too big for the chain link to slip off.

    #3: A 300 piece custom made Lego set.

    #4: 10″ tall rocket, all fabbed. Only things unfabbed would be the parachute (obviously), engine, and recovery wadding.

    Thanks a TON MakerBot!!!

    This is a small holder to fasten a PCB down do a work surface or onto a finished project.

    I could really use a few of these for my current project!

  • RocketGuy

    I really need to rev up my 3d chops, but my ideas include a custom case for various Arduino based projects, such as:

    -EMF detector, with strain relieved antenna and bargraph under a thinwalled “display” top.

    -Solar nightlights both indoor and outdoors, in various odd shapes and colors.

    -And the obligatory brackets, holders, and odd objects that solve a specific problem that is impossible for a one-size-fits-some item.

  • xboxexpert
    • Tony

      Because you don’t own it until you’ve voided the warranty.

      Looks neat; think it would help prevent an RROD?

      Where are the inlets and outlets?

  • fruitkid101

    I’m thinking, a camera tripod that has legs that attach together to vary the height. Or a a case for the Super TV Bgone kit . Or even better, a nice little paper weight that says, “LOVE”. lol

  • Jiggles

    Just a quick query before I delve into my 3D creative side, but is this available for Australia?

    Thankyou in advance :)

    Every Guitar Center should have one of these! I had to wait 2 weeks for a key for my guitar (the plastic piece at the top of the neck that holds the strings in place) to come in! It’s a stupid piece of plastic! This could work for any other plastic component on any instrument. Just have a huge library of all production guitars. If you need a component, BAM, it’s made right in store depending on your guitars serial.

    This could work for any other store, but GC is the best example I can think of, and would have affected me directly.

    I am working on making LED candles for a friend’s upcoming 30th birthday. These candles need to go on a cake, so it would be great to be able to print out the candle shape, leaving two channels for the LED leads and wires to run through. This would look much better than the straws filled with glue that I am currently planning on using.

    My idea is to make a set of modules that could be assembled into various CNC machines. It is not necessarily a printable design but laser cut maybe.

    Following the Open Structure http://www.openstructures.net/ guidelines the sliding modules would be 8cm by 8cm by 60cm and rotatable modules would be 8cm by 8cm by 8cm. Have powered and non-powered modules. Use multiple powered modules for more power in parallel or more distance in series.

  • Mozly

    I want to see a scale model of the original 1960’s time machine printed.

  • Nigel

    The general idea is to sample the roughness of the bike paths in a city using an accelerometer mounted to the bike frame. The acceleration data along with GPS coordinates are logged by an arduino onto a memory card for later analysis and image generation using Processing. Ultimately, a colour-coded image of the bumpiness data can be generated and layed over a map of the city to see which paths and roads are smooth and which ones are bumpy. See the thingiverse page for more details.

    The part I uploaded to thingiverse is a mount to fasten a sparkfun SEN-00252 board to a bicycle frame.

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2265

    I’d love to hear if anyone else tries this out!

  • Rich

    I have always wanted to see some basic lab equipment printed, especially for the home scientist in all of us, and possibly the Make: Science Room. I think an easy way to create glassware/plasticware may encourage home science and the maker spirit. I have started this with the creation of a 100ml beaker.

    Here’s my idea for an ice mold that will make black-and-tan-making aides.

    You fill the mold with water, freeze it and drop the ice washer into a pint glass. Then you fill the bottom of the glass with your first beer of choice (the more dense one) until it reaches the bottom of the washer, then fill the rest of the glass with your second beer of choice (the less dense one). When the thin ice piece melts you’ve got a perfect black and tan!

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2281

    • Matt Mets

      Ha! I did something similar in my quest to make a tan-and-black. I poured the less dense beer into a glass, put it in the freezer until a thin ice crust formed, then poured the denser liquid on last. Of course, when the ice melted, I was left with a mixed drink.

    I can do a fair amount of woodworking and metalworking by hand, but at least several times a week I think of some small widget which would be great to fab in plastic. Most recently, I was think about a little stand for my tippy Android phone. I was also thinking about a broad, large s-hook to hang over the shower curtain rod, to hang towels and robes from. Printing these lacks the fun of making them by hand, but getting dimensions exact on the first try would be great.

    Hi,

    I am looking at having a tooth extracted on Tuesday the 20th. After the extraction, I will need to have the “socket” for the implant heal for a number of months before getting a crown over the implant “post”. The whole procedure is very pricey, just to get a temporary plastic tooth alone costs a small fortune. I was going to leave it open but then I read about this competition. If I had a Makerbot then I could print my own tooth! So I fired up Blender and here is my best effort in Thingiverse:

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2353

    If I had a Makerbot then my sweet tooth could be replaced by a “sweet” tooth made with Cupcake!

    I have made several objects with my school’s rapid prototyper. I personally do not own the software they use, so I do not have many of the designs at home, but I can describe them:
    An iPhone case with a slot for a lanyard
    An iPod mini case
    An iPhone stand
    A model car
    Drum sticks (they broke soon after)
    Many gears for miscellaneous projects with motors
    Enclosures for many projects
    An HTC Herald case
    Replacement Guitar Hero keys/strum bar
    CD/DVD ROM holder (2, one 12cm, one 8cm)
    A sign for a teacher’s door (made letters in one color, body in another)
    Case for G1

    I would probably make a small lawn gnome, just because I could. However my cad skills are less than desired and would take some work, but I would totally print one.

  • smwombat

    I made this design for an ‘improved’ pom pom loom. My daughter learned to mak pom poms using two cardboard disks with holes in the middle (like a cardboard washer). It was tedious to thread the yarn through the center hole…. I added a slot for getting the yarn into the center, and a groove to make it easier to cut the yarn loops. The raised edge along the slot will (hopefully) keep the yarn on the loom until you are ready to cut it.

    We use 6 main sizes of sample tubes in biology research, I wanted to create a block that could hold all 6 types. The block is separated into 2 halves that can be used independently. I hope this helps DIY bio enthusiasts, researchers or anyone else who has access to a 3d printer.

    I want compound eyes, just like on a bug, but rather than light sensors at the end of each tube/facet of the eye, there is space for an electret microphone… with each being at the end of a tube at the eye inside, which leads up to the outside eye facet, each mic would be highly directional!

    Wouldn’t it be great to have a powerful robot to handle all of your boring and routine tasks every day. Then you would have more free time to relax and print 3D objects. Well this is not that robot. It cannot sweep the floor, make coffee, or walk the dog. It can, however, keep your books from falling off the shelf. I guess that counts for something.

    Hello I would like to participate…

    I designed this Climbig hold, thinking about how would the makerbot could be used in something I love to do (climbing) but the holds are expensive.

    I thought what if I make my own, and what if I make them the way I want them to be.

    With a MakerBot 3D Printer, I would like to make a shift knob for my car, that could not be produced with common tools or a cnc machine.
    It is just impossible to make it with conventional tools… just a MakerBot could do it!

    Inspired by the design of a golfball. You see a ball within a ball that even spins around. You can see the second ball through the holes.
    From the bottom it looks as there are four, twisted metall strings rising up from the ground. Even the thread within the strings is modelled in 3D.

    Best modelling techniques paired with free-form surfaces…
    Just marvellous!

    Enjoy it!

    This is a very expandable system … it can be multiple channels on a rotating drum with multiple drums with gearing between the vertical and horizontal systems you can add more and more to create a very large array of percussive triggers … I’m still tweaking the various different multiple systems.

    Yes every part will be CupCake MakerBotable!

    This is another of many entries to the makezine.com/go/makerbot contest …

    See the bill of materials for quantities of each to MakerBot for the 1-Channel PPRM … then MakerBot the parts and start fitting them together into your new drumming/tapping machine as shown in the diagrams.

    A rubber band (the spring) around the horizontal extensions out to the hammer pulls the hammer back to a stand-up position.

    Program the drum set by sticking the programming pegs into the holes on the drum …

    Set different objects in front of the hammer and crank the machine to hear the rhythm you created …

    It’s a learning process to understand beats/measure … then with 2:1 gearing and a 2nd machine you can increase the resolution to 32 beats/measure.

    BTW, if you store a few extra programming pins inside the drum you now have a second noise source … albeit not percussive but more like a rattle.

    This is an array of 15 servos each individually operating a little laser pointer holder to swivel it back ‘n forth … the idea is to program the swivels to correspond to music you hear playing …

    Sorry, the box cannot be made on a MakerBot so easily, but it could if it was cut-up like puzzle pieces and made as interlocking parts … which would be really neat. But you can see that a MakerBot is needed for the specialty pieces …

    This is another of many entries to the makezine.com/go/makerbot contest …

    I suggest laser cut the big flat parts from plastic or even cardboard. MakerBot the odd 3D pieces … then go buy a buttload of servos and laser pointers … and a small programmable µcontroller … write a simple program that allows you to enter notes ‘n beats to cause the laser pointers to swivel back ‘n forth to the music.

    I’ve created 4 different labyrinth modules that you can connect to each other to create one larger labyrinth. Each module has an exit point that is at 90 degrees from the entry point. This way you can create an infinite number of duplicates and make a giant labyrinth that is as big as your imagination! Use 1 or more BBs as your game pieces.

    This is a highly portable monopod with a 360 degree swivel (well, in one plane at least :-) ball joint. It is to be mounted on top of drink bottles (will fit most PET bottle tops).

    Easily carried around, this allows you to quickly set up self-portraits or even closeup of desktop items using one of the most common items around, an ordinary soft drink bottle.

    Tested only on small point and shooters, and a Flip camera – i have no idea how the joints will work with SLRs :-) – in any case USE AT OWN RISK!

    This design is Not Entirely Original – I first saw a camera adapter for a drink cap last week, and decided to integrate that with a ball joint found on Thingiverse – Thanks Erik and MakerBlock!

  • Francis

    I’ve always wanted to build this and hopefully I can if I win this MakerBot. I initially got the idea with those little trade show toys you get that allows you to ‘flip’ the cube inside out. They morph and can eventually show a total of 12 sides (6 outside and 6 stored inside). They are called magic cubes because they suddenly can make a picture seem like it appears out of nowhere.

    So the twist is rather than put boring pictures on the 6 faces of the block, I am to store geometric shapes inside the hidden surfaces. You can think of it as 3 pyramids stuck together to form a sub cube part. Then 8 of those sub cube parts are put together to form the final product.

    Here you can see the inside of the cube where I have joined all the side appropriately.
    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2651

    The actual file for one eighth the part is shown here:
    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2650
    *I started in the wrong quadrant so it only shows the back of the cube =(

    Anyway, after you print this out with the MakerBot, you must stick 8 of them together with lots of colorful paper. My idea is to cover the outsides (initial state) with 3 solid colors. The insides (hidden sides) will be covered by shiny reflective sticky paper, you know, the kind that glimmers and you can pick from red diamond, gold diamond, silver, etc? So even if the paper isn’t sticky, you can glue it all together with spray adhesive.

    You should note though that the stickers holding it together may not last long unless you use some sort of vinyl paper to endure the thousands of flippings this thing will likely see.

    This is an upgraded kit from the more basic kit I uploaded earlier … this includes differential gearing so one drum drives the other at a different speed (resolution) to create more beats/revolution and allow for more syncopation …

    Yes every part here is designed to be MakerBotable with a CupCake MakerBot … except for the rubber band … get those from your local post office!

    This is another of many entries to the makezine.com/go/makerbot contest …

    Use the BOM to see how many of each part to MakerBot … and both the drawing and display images to assemble your 2-ch 2-gear Programmable Percussion & Rhythm Machine.

    Rubber bands are the springs around the horizontal extensions out to the hammer pulls the hammer back to a stand-up position.

    Program the drum set by sticking the programming pegs into the holes on the drum …

    Set different objects in front of the hammer and crank the machine to hear the rhythm you created …

    It’s a learning process to understand beats/measure … then with 2:1 gearing and a 2nd machine you can increase the resolution to 32 beats/measure.

    BTW, if you store a few extra programming pins inside the drums and you’ll have a two more sources for noise … albeit not percussive but more like a rattles.

    Adding a servo drive to the back will allow for continuous rotations. Adding a µController will allow you to vary timing turning the motor drive ON/OFF and different times … there’s almost no end to the expandability of this kit.

The levers and pulley’s could be printed with the cupcake and an arduino could control the whole system. I could have the arduino hooked to an rfid reader, and when the right card is read, the system of levers and pulley’s would be initiated and would turn the door knob on the inside of the door, which would allow the door to open freely.

    My submission for this competition is Enclosure Profiles. This design idea is intended to offer a simple way to use today’s modest-resolution desktop CNC tools to make an infinite variety of finished-looking electronic and mechanical project cases. Simple 2D profiles define the shape and features of enclosures which are printed-to-depth and finished with matching flat faceplates, surface-mount, flush, or recessed. Internal components, circuit boards, or chassis plates slide into inside surface grooves with the whole assembly held together by the screws or threaded rods holding the faceplates. By combining sections of profiles with compatible inside dimensions but different external perimeter features into stacks locked together with internal threaded rods, it becomes possible to make very elaborate cases with different exterior features, such as stand-off legs, heat sinks, and bolt-on flanges.

    The concept was inspired by the design of classic radio designs like the Tivoli Model One and was first described in an article in my TMP2 wiki project as one of the example project concepts for the Open Source Everything Program, illustrating a possible manufactured product that could benefit from open design and global refinement. It was originally based on the use of aluminum with a series of standard extruded profiles being produced and cut to length like lumber for custom enclosures. Now, however, these new tools like the MakerBot offer us the option to print-to-depth instead, giving this concept even more flexibility and greater potential customization.

    The particular design featured is for a fanless PC enclosure hosting a 170mm square Mini-ITX motherboard -which would make a great companion to the MakerBot. This is an example to illustrate the basic design concept and readers are encouraged to experiment freely with this to invent their own custom cases and features.

Hope its enjoyed by all, get printing and playing (only two parts i did not make 3d models for, 1 the string i think ukulele stings would be best, and tightening knobs P.S i love makerbot, and this is my first object iv ever made, if there is a mistake plz let me know :) GL everyone like the ideas

    This is a MakerBotable kit to modify a RoboNova-1 and add another DOF so the legs can pronate and supanate while keeping the height of the RoboNova-1 very nearly the same as the original 30cm height … and this allows for the c.g. to remain lower for more stability. I’ll upgrade and fix these new servo horns within a day … they don’t have the splines on the inside bore just yet … I have to dig a real RoboNova-1 horn out for measurement … albiet I don’t have a caliper that small … I’ll only be able to eye-ball and guess.

    This kit will make your RoboNova-1 slightly wider and thicker, but even side-by-side they appear very much the same size.

    And as usual, every part here is designed to be MakerBotable with a CupCake MakerBot … except for the rubber band … get one from your local post office!

    I wish I had a MakerBot to actually build and test my creations!

    This is a plastic shoe that you “Elmer’s” glue to the bottom of the RoboNova-1 Robot feet to store LiPo batteries in the shoes for more and longer lasting power plus aiding to lower the c.g. for more stability.

    MMMMM Cupcakes! Ever wonder how the one armed man eats cupcakes? Now’s your chance to find out, see my design for a prosthetic ‘hand’. With a Cupcake CNC printer you can make your own prosthetic hand to practice eating cupcakes, dress up for Halloween, scare your mother or as I had envisioned provide prostheses to areas affective by war, disease, natural disasters or the like. Using a Cupcake CNC printer and a basic hand and wrist design will allow for inexpensive production in areas with little resources. The fact that the printer is portable and affordable allows for someone like myself (a prosthetic technician) to travel to places like Haiti and make be;low elbow prothesis on the spot for victims. The opportunities to assist people with low cost prosthesis are endless with the Cupcake CNC printer!!!
    And if you don’t know and amputee or don’t want to scare your mother this design can be used as an in home grabber for hard to reach shelves (I just make my georgous tall wife do it for me) or as claws for your robot army as they take over the world. As you can see something for the bleeding hearts and the hearts taking over the world, something for everyone! http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2822

    Well I’m just not that great w/ 3d modeling yet, but here are a couple of entry ideas that I had. I never got to building them, maybe someone else can.

    Pegboard hoods – you could make them standard or custom to hold your odd shaped tools that never seem to hang just right.

    Fan duct – You could scale the design up or down to fit whatever fan you had and increase its airflow.

    Pill box – Monday through Friday or Tuesday and Saturday, print whatever combo you want with hinged lids of course.

    4″x4″ organizer – 4 2″x2″ divided squares about 1″ tall to hold and organize various screws while working on projects

    Seatbelt clip – to clip the sholder strap to the lapbelt and allow you to adjust the shoulder strap to hit farther to your left. For cars where the shoulder strap rubs your neck.

    This is a 3D T-Rex puzzle like the ones that are made out of wood then put together to make a 3d skeleton.
    The idea is that each piece can be printed on the 3D printer then the puzzle is assembled/solved by hand.

    I’d love to see how it goes and if it even fits together(i hope it does!)

    Best of luck to everyone who has their mind ticking!

    This is my entry for the Make/MakerBot give away. It was made using 3ds Max. My entry it is more an example of what I can do with 3d modeling than what I would use a MakerBot for. I have several things that I would use a 3d printer for. the main one would be to print robot parts that i design as I have a very hard time finding anything that would be as flexible and durable as the prints would be. As I am home schooled I have a lot of time to follow my interests and I think that a MakerBot would be great for me.
    Thank for considering me Kyle

    These are a pair of robot wheels. When printed at 40mm they will fit a 2mm shaft – perfect size for motor shafts. I have optimized this design to use a minimum amount of printing material and also reduce the dynamic energy required to drive the wheel. I have learned that the elastics used to hold broccoli together make for great traction.

    it was an idea i got when i needed multiple spray cans shaken for a project i was doing for class. basically it allows you to shake up to 3 spray cans in a one gallon bucket paint shaker. if i won the makerbot, it would really help me get a better grasp on things on my classes at college while using inventor and would be extremely appreciated. Thank you for the opportunity!

  • Jiggles

    As a Teacher, every project i work on, whether be my own design or someone elses that has been featured on your site, i.e. Rick’s Compressed Air Rocket Launcher. Has had the ability to be brought into the classroom to teach and aid the students with their studies. Rick’s Rocket launcher helps to teach aerodynamics, projectile motion, etc.

    My designs have followed this example.

    Electronics are always so small and always hard to demonstrate in a classroom of at least 25 students.
    making the parts larger and be able to stick onto a whiteboard via the slot for magnets to be inserted to show kids how electronics work is my goal. The devices are going to sit flush on the whiteboard, and only their frontal 3D shape has been modelled.

    With a Cupcake 3D Printer i will be able to print these designs and utilise them in a classroom setting hopefully encouraging future hobbyist’s and engineers to flourish.

    Devices are to include

    -Resistor

    -Diode

    -Electrolyitic Capacitor

    Untitled #2 by CafeT. Made for this contest!

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2867

  • CafeT

    I’ve had several ideas, many of which would require improvements to the MakerBot. This fits within the rules as the first one asks for something I would “like to see printed on a MakerBot CupCake CNC,” not necessarily something currently feasible. :)

    1. Easy production of sculptures (already done, of course).
    2. Direct printing of robot chassis parts instead of, e.g., going to laser cutting.
    3. Printing of electronic components using conductive second materials (wires and capacitors being the easiest, resistors, diodes, and transistors being eventual goals). Embedded electronics could lead to waterproofing and protection like in Shape Deposition Manufacturing (http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~sdm/). Printable motors, anyone?
    4. Prototyping of musical instruments, including using an audio sample feedback loop to keep modifying body design until certain frequency characteristics are achieved. Needs machine learning work to choose next iteration.
    5. Very thin objects and small holes (resolution increase necessary).
    6. Laying down of lithographic materials like silicon, silicon dioxide, and piezoelectrics.
    7. Cells and growth factors!
    8. Spider silk spinning machine? Transgenic bacteria grow the proteins, and the small holes above allow us to print parts.
    9. Back to the nearer future: Off-center centers of gravity for bouncy balls (silicone?).
    10. New tupperware/food containers (I always lose the lids, not sure how though).

    I probably should have posted 10 times if not, but I’m assuming each person’s considered once anyway. Also, regardless of how good my ideas are with respect to those of others, I would love to see developments enabling them. These are essentially feature requests!

    Awesome Honda U3-X mobile chair …

    I think we need to figure out how to build these in a MakerBot!

  • Skillzilla

    I was inspired by the name CupCake CNC, so decided to create a little vinyl toy called ‘Cupcake’ for the contest.

    Hope you like it!

    Thanks!

  • whowhatwhere

    OK, sorry for the long name,

    Basically this is a lockable pivot joint intended to be used (with about 5 brothers) in making a set of helping hands to hold circuit boards etc.

    It has a ball at one end and socket at the other with a tightening nut to fix the joint in place. This means these can attached to each other to form pose-able armatures.

    My hope is to build a part that could be used for all manner of adjustable supports (eg, camera mounts, small lights, tools etc)

  • SolidWorksMagi

    Hi,

    I thought I’d post this little note … I’ve been using/learning SolidWorks for almost a year now … practicing on my own at home watching YouTube videos of “How To” etc… But I must say, this contest has driven me to greater detail than ever learning SolidWorks and now realizing how I must invert (unless I an figure out how to rotate axis in SW) all my sketches in SolidWorks … that is to have the SW back as the bottom and drill negatively for the MakerBot build-up. Basically, the 3D axis in SolidWorks differs by 90° than the files created for MakerBot and rather than positive numbers I need to use negative numbers to build the sketch.

    I hope somebody can tell me how to either rotate the axis in the MakerBot programs to align with SolidWorks or vice-versa.

    Anyway, this contest has been fun … I figure at best I have a 25% chance of winning … but I still have my toes crossed …

    It’s been a great challenge to come up with ideas for things here and crank’em out … but very educational.

    This is a replacement bottom to the cup holder in the Mini Cooper. I plan on creating new versions of it that will be more 3D printer friendly, and have modifications that allow me to use it for more than just a cup holder.

    Got an itch you can’t reach with the makerbot now you can. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2878

    A funny thing made me come up with this, you see i have an itch to win the makerbot giveaway competition, last night i was working late on some designs in blender and low and behold my mental itch turned into a physical one, i guess what you think does find away to manifest itself, or it could have been the candy bar, anyway it was dead center in my back just out of reach of my hands. Uureka, i had an epiphany. The only way to get to it was to kill two bird with one stone, i had to take care of my mental itch by winning the competition by designing a model that could actually scratch my physical itch. *Genius*,

    I then realize this has the ability to tear the fabric of the universe. You see i have an itch to win the makerbot competition, which then turned into a real itch i could not reach, so i designed the Back Scratcher to win the makerbot competition, but if i win the competition then the itch would never have manifested itself into a real itch meaning i never would have created the Back Scratcher meaning i could not have won the makerbot competition and then “boom”**(….) the fabric of the universe gets ripped. Anyway i still got an itch and i cant reach it and would be much obliged if you picked me, so i could then scratch it, its irritating…, it cant be as bad as a tear in the space time continuum right?

    “Makerbot’s new ability, it can even tear the space time continuum” with just a back scratcher.

  • SolidWorksMagi

    I saw the basic “Shot Glass Ice Cube” part then immediately wondered why only one? An ice cube tray has several cups to make a bunch of ice cubes … then I realized that sometimes the freezer gets full of stuff and a big long tray doesn’t always fit … so why not make an adjustable tray ??? So I did it like this …

    When I was young and drinking I always thought a standard “shot glass” was small … hence these are oval so they give you a little extra fun …

    YES, that bottom design is on purpose … so if the cups get stuck in the frost of older refrigerators you can get a fork or knife under the edge and pry it upwards …

    And yes, this is MakerBotable.

    This is another of many entries to the makezine.com/go/makerbot contest …

    So MakerBot a couple … if they work well then MakerBot a few dozen and send me some.

    They’re simple … puzzle like interlocking handles to create any length ice cube tray you want.

    If you successfully make this with a 3D printer please send me the build-file and machine type so it can be uploaded here for others to use.

  • Delirium619

    When I was first playing with zBrush for the first time, the first thing I did was make a sword from one of my favorite games. After I did the sculpting in zBrush and reduced the polys to a reasonable level, I imported it into Maya to play around with it on a character then it occurred to me that if I made it an actual physical object, it would make a great prop for a toy.

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2912

    The happy go lucky dancing robot from the video game Borderlands

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2913

    I built him because he seemed like he would be easy to build so I could start playing with animation and rigging, but I actually ended up using it for my 3d class as well because I was asked to make a funny looking functional robot for my classmates to use in an animation and this one fit the bill.

    His arms, “ears” eye and the wheel will be separate parts after i wrap my head around how he can be assembled. I think he would make a great little desktop figurine when it’s ready.

    My second entry for the contest

    I still need to split the parts into their respective pieces to be printed but after that is settled, he should assemble just like a normal lego man only several times the size.

    I am currently putting together a proper entry, but in case I am not able to complete it in time, I may as well try for the other prize…

    I am very interested in acquiring a Makerbot mainly for rapid prototyping purposes. I would use it to produce gears, structural supports, and casings for in-house robotics and electronics projects. It would be a great boon in my situation as I live in a rural area where many of these things must be ordered from a large distance away if I am unable to produce them myself, which introduces increased costs, part-selection difficulties, and lots of waiting time into many projects. I would also use it to produce gifts, toys, and other static tools and objects for myself and other people I know. Finally, I am very interested in the RepRap project as well, and have a few like-minded friends who would also be interested to get their hands on some of the Darwin or Mendel parts I could print with a CupCake ‘bot.

    Thanks for your consideration!

    • skyeyemachine

      Here is my entry:

      It’s a toy figurine of my own design derived from a 3D animation project. I’ve posted a rendering of what it looks like with a texture; something similar could be done with paint, or people can decorate it with their own designs. I’m pretty new to this, so sadly, no complicated mechanical designs from me this time.

    I would like to make two things:
    1. Roller ball skate bearings. These are very usefull, and also a part that could be used to build makerbots.

    2. Ceramic/plastic cups and dishes. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a set of dishes made from a 3D printer? They could be made of plastic, or the new frostruder could be used to make them out of earthenware clay.

    These are my contest ideas, but someday when I get a makerbot I will print these out along with many other things.

    Long live makerbot!!!

  • simon1tan

    This is a slug barrier designed to keep bugs, mainly slugs, from eating your vegetable. There are 3 parts to this barrier. The trough, the “Hanover Slug Fence”, and the spikes. The trough is the main barrier because it can be filled with salt or beer. Beer will attract the slugs and they drown in it. Salt will keep slugs away due to dessication upon contact. The “Hanover Slug Fence” keeps slugs from climbing over as well as keeps water out of the trough. The spikes cut slugs. In actual product, the spikes would be more dense like mesh wire. I imagine the trough is all that is necessary and the other measures are superfluous. This is all theory and prototyping has not begun yet. Please comment. Thanks.

    Note for this giveaway: I uploaded a Google Sketchup file although thingiverse can’t seem to render the file.

    This is a major improvement on my last entry, a fully featured pinhole camera:

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2863

    This is WAY BETTER than my last one, here are some features:

    -Film advance and rewind dials
    -a clicker to tell you how far to advance the film. (8 clicks per frame)
    -a shutter with a safety, so you don’t accidentally take a picture of the inside of your bag
    -a removable viewfinder
    -an easily loadable film carrier, that slides in and out of the camera body (little rails on the inside to keep it in place)
    -PRINTABLE ON A MAKERBOT

    Requires only a few steps to make into a ready to use, fully functional pinhole camera.

    Here is my entry to the Makerbot giveaway contest: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1992

    The idea is that trumpet mouthpieces are expensive, so if you want to experiment with different types to get a different sound and playability, you have to be very rich. There are many many different types of mouthpieces, so I wanted to make a parametric way to create mouthpieces. I came up with the design I posted to Thingiverse. It is an openSCAD file.
    So far I have created versions of the Marcinkiewicz 4/7c and 3/5c mouthpieces. I also created a version of the Bach 3C mouthpiece.

    I had an idea for something that would be awesome to print on a Makerbot.
    The idea is an RC plane. It would be built in 8 parts. The wings would each be 2 parts. The body of the plane would be in 2 parts that would join in the center. The rudder would also be a separate part. You could even print the rotor. The control surface for the rudder would be a piece of cardboard.

    The reason for building in separate parts is to have long wings and to not have any un-build-able overhangs.

    Unfortunately, I really do not have the CAD design kung-fu to design this myself.

    I’m not sure if the design would fly because of all the weight of the plastic, but its worth a try.

    Here’s a 2D mock up of the design: http://www.flickr.com/photos/49325300@N07/4579995045/
    Its just for the basic idea. Not at all a finished design.

    Hello,
    I have designed a pinball machine in visual pinball and have started to build it in the real world. I have installed most of the standard pieces, but have been looking for a way to make the unique pieces.

    Here are two of the pieces that I need to make for the machine:

    Lodge: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2926

    Gondola: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2952

    The first is a lodge that the ball goes into and is kicked onto the second floor where it is locked for multiball

    The second is a gondola that will carry the ball up the machine to the top of the mountain and send the ball down a ski jump.

    Thanks for the contest

    My entry is a dremel based milling machine, printable on a makerbot without a heated build platform (although it certainly helps). It uses dovetail slides for the axises. So far, I’ve only printed part of the x&y stages, but the x axis dovetail slide moves smoothly and without wobble, even though the print warped a bit. This bodes well for the rest of the axises, and I think it will be good enough to machine aluminum.

    By editing the .scad file, you can render left rails, right rails, or both, side-by-side; you can turn on or off top and bottom “end caps”, with or without mounting holes. The code is commented, so it shouldn’t be difficult to add features.

    I have a number of small (1U-3U), light-weight rack-mount devices but wanted to be able to mount them in more convenient places than a standard rack. My first target is to hang a 3U GPS faceplate under the shelf above my monitor. While the GPS behind the faceplate is gone, what remains is a 4×40 textual LCD and ten input buttons that I drive with LCDproc. I’ve also considered using these rails as the front corners of a small table-top enclosure.

    Here’s a makerbot project inspired by a student design I looked at in machine shop +30 years ago:

    This is a pair of STL files generated by an OpenSCAD script that parametrically generates a printable case for the prototype Makerbot Watch (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1254).

    I was lucky enough to get one of the prototype watches and haven’t been able to find the time to lasercut the sample case. Since I’ve been brushing up on my OpenSCAD skills, I thought this would be educational as well as useful.

    Print one of the STL files, then use the DXF file from the Makerbot Watch page and cut out a 3mm-thick face from the right-most shape in the file and bolt them together with M4 hardware. Alternately, it should be possible to use washers under the M4 bolts to grab the edges of the PCB.

    This is my entry. After being banished from the busses in my town for bringing my longboard on, I devised a way to make it compact enough to fit in a backpack.
    This is the result.
    I did this in Maya. I’m an animator, not a modeler so it kinda sucks but a good idea none the less….
    but yeah if I got a 3d printer I’d make tons of figurines…. and legos. haha well fingers crossed! (if I inevitably loose I think I’m going to try to make a RipRap)

    I just read that you’re supposed to comment here before the deadline. 32 minutes ago. I thought we just had to upload to Thingiverse and tag it with makeentry. Doh!

    Anyhow, if the powers that be will allow it, my entry is at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2998 and was uploaded about an hour ago (before the deadline.)

    After you MakerBot this add two continuously rotating servos ($5-$20), a channel mixer ($10-$20) and R/C control and walk it around making your cat or dog nuts …

    If you successfully make this with a 3D printer please send me the build-file and machine type so it can be uploaded here for others to use.

    This is maybe these are too small to be MakerBotable … I don’t know …

    This is another of many entries to the makezine.com/go/makerbot contest …

    Give it a try … see if it works …

  • Mr_Hyde

    This gyro centered generator is based on the idea that if the shown apparatus housing generator coils and a unipolar motor setup across a gyro fitted with magnets is constructed, the generator’s output would exceed its power consumption thereby making it self-powered and self-regenerating. Basically an eternal power source.

    Hi,

    Okay, I’ve posted several things for the MakerBot contest … and most can be made on a cupcake MakerBot while all can be made on other larger 3D printers … out of almost any materials …

    I don’t have access to any machines to make these myself, so if you decide to make something I hope you can at least make two for me too.

    Here’s a summary of the parts/kits I entered into the contest with;

    At the very least, if you download it before you announce the winners, I will let you keep the design and use it as you wish.

    Hi,

    Where is the posting for the winner of the contest?

  • SolidWorksMagi

    Here’s where they posted the results folks;

    http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2010/05/winners_in_the_makemakerbot_3d_prin.html

    And I hope people with a MakerBot or access to a MakerBot or other 3D Rapid Prototype Printer can make some of my stuff and send them to me so I can learn how to better design for 3D Rapid Prototype Printing.

    I need more practice so I can win contests and better yet, maybe get a job!
