My dad gave me some rough measurements and asked for some storage for his shop. Not very complicated, but I also designed these simple boxes off his notes. I didn't realize it was going to fit so close. We lucked out since I didn't follow his measurement sticky note exactly. These were really shallow drawers where he was buying containers and sanding them down to fit. I gave him enough for 2 drawers so far.

I was very happy with how well it worked out because failures happen a lot, but usually once you have the first few layers good you are home free.
A coworker wants one. I think I can adjust some print settings and get one the same size and mostly same quality and still cut off a day of printing. I won't be able to try that until I have another break in orders though.

New product Sunday = many new orders this week.

I don't even play DnD but I have been printing these on repeat over the last few days. Evie likes using it for her dice based games.

Very clever model. This is something I remember seeing on reddit a year ago and thinking how cool it was, wishing I had a printer. ImageImageImage

That is pretty nifty. Never would have thought of a contraption like that!

I believe Jocelyn already posted this to FB. Probably took credit for it too.

5 different prints. About 60 hours total print time. Image

I kind of want to see a couple of interlocking 2x4 lego blocks that the flower can lock into now.

Mother in law asked me to figure out a way to keep my niece's prosthetic foot from slipping off the trike pedal. Came up with this 3D printed pedal and velcro/elastic combination.
