Here are some of the ‘things’ I have made which I really like.
This is probably the biggest project I have undertaken; a complete 3D printer built from my design. Currently still in the building stages but you can follow on the blog.
Game Boy Cartridge Stand
I have been collecting the Mario and Zelda series of games for the Game Boy. Although I still don’t have all of them I wanted to display what I have thus far. I designed this stand so that they could be held at good display angle and also to provide space for a plaque on the front giving the games name, date of release and is ranking (according to GameRankings.com).
Being interested in electronics I have lots of components I needed to store. However one of the issues is that – being a hobbyist – I don’t have huge quantities of most items. That means I end up having to have a large case and use only a fraction of it. So I designed a smaller version of the large cases to be printed. It is semi-parametric – the rack can be set for any number of rows and columns. The draws (and openings in the rack) are fixed sizes – just long enough for a resistor and its leads to fit in.
I have an iPod Nano (6th Gen) and have come up with a couple of extras for it. First is a charging station which uses the existing USB lead. The second is a pocketwatch case which converts the iPod – and its clock mode – into a pocket watch. The watch is still under a little bit of development as it is not gripping the iPod that well at the moment.
