I #3dprinted some new keyboard risers for my new @system76 Launch keyboard they sent me. It fixes my one and only complaint with this keyboard, that islts not high enough or angled enough with the feet. 5 hour print same as I made for the Launch Heavy pictured. Now my streaming, gaming, and workstation dual desktop setup is a little better.

We're not there yet, but it may be a reality in commercial #kitchens in the near future.
The digital release of #RackBlox is available!!!
I've open-sourced the innovative design elements: sliding box connector, screwless module attachment, snap-on lid and more. The 4HP and 10HP finished designs are available for free, as well as the sides.
In order to support my efforts and future designs, I've created a Patreon where for only $5 you get all the files and provide patronage.
Test printing the last sizes: 16hp, 18hp, 20hp and then I think I'm ready to release the first version of #RackBlox.
Now featuring a drink koozie as well as a drink holder.
The double wall with a sealed air gap between makes for an excellent insulator and keeps your next drink cold, while you're enjoying the current one 😁
Fantastic to see our #3DPrinted DIY Cashless Donation Point taking centre stage on the https://givealittle.co stand at the Chartered Institute of Fundraising London conference in July. The only DIY solution among several commercial offerings 😜

@duk3luk3 The first test shows this is definitely worth putting more effort into.
The #3Dprinted enclosure was made out of PETG, and consulting with a couple of mentors we suspect it was causing capacitance and making them seem longer. I need to hookup the nanovna and see where it is resonant.
We bought from this seller on aliexpress, but there are many listings: https://www.aliexpress.us/item/3256804708714204.html Note, it is an M10x1.5 handoff. Depending on your QTH that might not be straightforward.
Gonk is finished printing! I took the base model and split it in half, then added a negative space in the middle using Prusa Slicer to reduce filament usage and give me room to potentially hide stuff inside (what do you think, shall I make it into a working battery?). #3dprinting #3dprinted #starwars #droid #robot

Latest prototypes look like they might be the final ones, now with an individual lid that sturdily snaps in place and can be used when joined together in a rack. Also, lots of tiny internal tweaks for tolerances and ease of use. #rackblox #eurorack #3dprinting #3dprinted #eurorackcase #eurorackmodular
First full Eurorack system using my 3D printed case. There are a lot of details on this page to explain some of the design decisions of the solution.
I'm curious to hear any thoughts and comments about this system.
This project is not dead; it's just slow. I printed a quartet of these joiners a while ago, and I also designed and printed some drill guides so I can put the holes in the right places in the LACKs. Today I drilled the table and assembled those pieces.
Some photos, maybe.
But now I'm stuck. I'm putting rubber feet on the bottom table, but I only have three feet. More have been ordered from the big piranha-infested retailer.
I published new Dynamod Dungeon Tiles models: door storage boxes.
They come in 10, 15, 25, and 50 sizes and neatly package your Dynamod doors in a handy box. When you're ready to play, just remove the lid and use the doors straight from the box.
There are dozens of holsters that attach an AirTag to an Apple TV remote on Printables, but this one is mine.
The rest put the AirTag on the bottom, put the speaker firing inward so it's muffled, or are big and clunky. This one will sit flat on a table, has the AirTag firing outward, and is almost slender.
And yes, one of the family toddlers hid the old remote so well that we had to buy a new one. Barn door, post-horse, lock.
Optima was too ambitious. I switched the lettering to Gill Sans and increased the size, and the second one (orange) came out great.
There must have been a grease spot on the printer bed near the "one" label. The green one looks smaller because it's only 3mm tall. The orange one is the full cover at ~22mm tall.
If I'm going to print this in PET-G, I'll need some better filament colors. I'll try PLA first.
It amuses me and gratifies me when my functional designs come out looking weirdly beautiful. This is a two-piece joiner to attach an IKEA LACK table leg to the top of another LACK table.
The plan is that the male part will screw onto the table top, and the female part will screw onto the end of the leg, then they'll interlock. I'll need four of each. The curvilinear shape will be entirely hidden when it's assembled.
Made another smaller Dynamod board game table for conventions and trade shows. It will be used by a friend to show off the filament painted tiles at the East Coast RepRep Festival 2023 in October.
Dynamod has come such a long way in a year and a half, everything here was 3D printed with a filament printer, nothing was painted. The details in the walls are impressive and the whole table is incredible sturdy.

Made a new #mechanicalkeyboard! It’s a Charybdis Nano designed by bastardkb, and it’s not for me, it’s for @joenash. This time, I #3dprinted the case, but no handwiring - really cool flexible PCBs. It works non-tented too. Do you want a silly keyboard? I like talking about keyboards and soldering stuff, so maybe I can help. Say hi!
This morning I installed it. It is under-shelf storage for a set of plastic measuring cups. It's an absolutely trivial quality of life improvement, and in no way worth the time I spent on it, but that's my very favorite kind of project.
For now, it is held in place with double sided Scotch™ tape. If it falls out, I'll drill the shelf for screws.
The colored text is paper taped to the back.
After taking a while to ponder it, I unsubscribed to Thomas Sanladerer's Youtube channel. I didn't watch his recent video about open source and patents in #3DPrinting — it was such clickbait that I wouldn't feed the algorithm. Regardless of the content of the video, the clickbait title alone is too damaging for me to contribute to his subscriber count.
It's sad, because he has put a lot of worthy effort into investigating and measuring to help individuals make better #3DPrinted parts, and contributed a lot of healthy and useful information. I wish he had done better here.
I designed this piece to mount a display in my car. This part was flat when I printed it on my #3dprinter last Saturday. This is a good showcase that #pla is not well suited in hot environments... The car was exposed to direct sunshine for a day and the plastic melted and the mounted display fell to the ground. Now, I will make some adjustments to the design and print it with PETG or ASA for better heat durability
I've really enjoyed the disc-based planners I've seen people use but I've balked at the price of supplies.
I've designed discs that are compatible with said planners and even a 1/2 US letter page cover that can be #3dprinted
The cost of printing the rings is about 1/10 of the commercial versions and are fully parametric allowing one to make any size binder disc or protector sheet they wish.
#3dprinting for the win.
Got my first 3D printer with an automated color system, so I started adapting my Dynamod Dungeon Tiles models to take advantage of it. These doors are not painted but printed in place with three different filament colors!
