• RagTag2

    RagTag2

    The RagTag is a small hook on your waste attachment to allows you to keep a rag or towel with you. Originally intended for cooks and barbecuers, it might have countless other applications as well. I have been selling the RagTag on Amazon for some time now and slowly finding an audience for it. But…

  • Make-Up Sponge Holder Set

    Make-Up Sponge Holder Set

    My wife uses these small sponges for washing off her make-up (I think), and needed a way to hold them (both wet and dry). They come compressed in packs of 50 pieces or so and those dry ones need to be kept away from the wet one that is in use. And, when not in…

  • Make-A-Bowl

    Make-A-Bowl

    I love my dogs and nothing could be better than making a product that is good for them and makes taking care of them easier. Make-A-Bowl™ is a super compact and durable, foldable bowl frame which uses a poop bag to create a bowl. It is super convenient to keep with you on a walk,…

  • Kallax Drawer Trays

    Kallax Drawer Trays

    This is a sliding tray that rides on the Ikea Kallax drawer walls and is also convertible into an organizer sitting inside the Kallax drawer. But the main point of it is that this 275mm tray is printable on a 200mm bed.

  • Coffee Mug Lazy Susan

    Coffee Mug Lazy Susan

    You know… so if the handle on your coffee mug is on the wrong side you can just spin it around to grab a hold of it. Ok, maybe you will not need it for that but it is still kind of fun. A mini turntable mechanism for displaying things or just as a fidget…

  • WIP – Stash Can V2.0 with programmable combination lock

    WIP – Stash Can V2.0 with programmable combination lock

    What seemed impossibly complicated to me even a few weeks ago is now very close to reality. I expect to finish my Stash Can version 2.0 in the next week or so and it builds on the original version by adding a programmable-code combination lock to the bottom of the can. 2024-04-12 Update: This is…

  • 380mm Lazy Susan Printed on a 220mm Bed!!

    380mm Lazy Susan Printed on a 220mm Bed!!

    One of my key design strategies is breaking everything down into small design challenges and in doing so even the biggest project becomes tackleable. When I first created my Lazy Susan mechanisms I wanted one bigger than my print bed allowed but that seemed too challenging so I ended up settling for 330mm diameter on…

  • Count the Turns

    Count the Turns

    …of filament on the spool to know how much filament remains. I guess a lot of people hate wasting the last little bit of filament on a spool as I do. But it is not super convenient to remove the spool from the machine to measure it just to determine you have 50g remaining. So…

  • Modular (Box) Chain System

    Modular (Box) Chain System

    A modular chain system with medium strength seemed like a good idea when I started it. But I am not sure what to do with it. So for now it is in the fun and curious category of things to print. I hope to one day find a purpose for it. I have designed a…

  • LPE25 Variable Flow Valve

    LPE25 Variable Flow Valve

    When I created the modular LPE25 Quick Connect Exhaust System I always thought I would make a blast gate for it at some point but was lacking inspiration. Then someone asked me for a variable flow valve and I thought… that would be so much better for this application. So here it is…

  • Dragon Hair-Sticks

    Dragon Hair-Sticks

    My wife challenged me to come up with some hair-sticks for her. This is what I thought was appropriate… just saying…

  • Multi-Axis Calipers

    Multi-Axis Calipers

    I needed to measure the widths of an object that is greater in radius than the length of my caliper arms. So that was the first problem. But also the object I wanted to measure is irregular (like a wine glass) and therefore I wanted to know the width of the object over a range…

  • Lazy Susan 2.0

    Lazy Susan 2.0

    Okay, this is better, I have to admit. When I created the first Lazy Susan mechanisms (previously posted here) I was pretty pleased with myself. And, to be clear they are designed for low speed and work very well. But I have received a few comments about using conical bearings and I could not resist…

  • Secret “Stash-Can” Safe

    Secret “Stash-Can” Safe

    I remember as a child I always loved secret hiding places for things. I am not sure if that is normal or not and what it says about me but… I still love secret hiding spaces. And, to that end, I have designed a soda can (think cola or beer can) that is a secret…

  • Large Mouth Flask

    Large Mouth Flask

    I wanted to create a water bottle that a) holds a decent volume of water (0.5l) and b) fits into a specific location that is convenient for me when walking my dogs (needed to be flat’ish). And, this is what I came up with – essentially a large flask. But what I learned is even…

  • LPE25 Quick Connect Exhaust

    LPE25 Quick Connect Exhaust

    This is a quick-connect/disconnect system for a 2.5-inch vacuum/exhaust hose that includes a mounting facility so you can keep it organized. I developed this to vent out my printers and it has worked out so well that I thought I better share it…

  • BevvySteady3 Drink Holster

    BevvySteady3 Drink Holster

    This one makes me happy… not just because I can keep a beer handy but because I have been trying to perfect this concept for a long time. My original design (here) was ok for me at the time but not ok for me now. This design is infinitely superior and complex. Three axes of…

  • Re-useable Print Spool

    Re-useable Print Spool

    I am thrilled that many of the filaments I like to use are now on recyclable cardboard spools but unfortunately, not all are. So I wanted a re-useable spool that was easy to use and had some features that were important to me. This is what I came up with.

  • Kanger™

    Kanger™

    I mean… who does not need more desk space? Ok, I know, tidy people. I hope to be one when I grow up. But for now, the Kanger™ has become one of my best friends.

  • Phone Multi Widget

    Phone Multi Widget

    This is (another) one of those projects that has been more than a year in the works. It started as something quite different but in essence, it was intended to be a pocket-size tool to hold a phone for watching videos in a multitude of situations. And, now I am finally happy enough with it…

  • Pocket Pill Popper

    Pocket Pill Popper

    I recently developed tendonitis in my forearm and to cope with it I needed to take ibuprofen regularly. I needed to keep a few pills with me throughout the day and I wanted to keep them in my pocket but not loose. My solution is this snap-together pill box. Small, compact, and works super well.

  • First Layer Squish Tool

    First Layer Squish Tool

    I always prefer things to be more definitive than subjective. To that end, setting the Z-offset and getting the first layer squish just right has always seemed a little frustrating. That is until I designed this First Layer Squish Tool. Print it and you can see what is the smallest slot you can achieve with…

  • T8 Fixture Mount

    T8 Fixture Mount

    I had a T8 LED “shop lamp” fixture lying around and at the same time I can never get enough light, so I thought I should whip up a mount for the fixture. This one works excellently. This is for the T8 fixtures that are often referred to as shop lamps. Those ones are mounted…

  • Folding Garden Canopy

    Folding Garden Canopy

    Living where we do, I have difficulty keeping some of my herbs (plants) alive through the winters. But I have found protecting them from the winter elements using a cover is extremely effective in getting them into the spring in good shape. So I created a folding canopy structure using 1/2 PVC pipe and a…

  • Giant Spider

    Giant Spider

    We are doing a kind of “spider” based Halloween theme decoration this year and so I was looking for large spiders to print to put on the front lawn. I found a few decent ones but none that were huge or had articulated legs. Maybe they are out there but I didn’t find them. So……

  • Lazy Susan

    Lazy Susan

    2023-02-25 Update: I have created version 2.0 of these which use conical bearings and consequently runs much smoother and more freely. Although they are in different sizes I recommend these newer versions as opposed to the older ones described here. The new versions are linked here. Lazy Susan Mechanism 2.0 (Conical Bearings) Original Posting: I…

  • Freezer Crates

    Freezer Crates

    I know it may not be a concern for everyone but if you need to organize a freezer it can be difficult to find containers that are suitable. Firstly, they need to be the right size. And secondly, they need to let air flow in and around them. I hunted high and low and then…

  • Reboot!!

    I placed this post in here as a time marker… A few months ago my service provider had a hardware failure and well… my backups were not so much.

  • 20xxx Series Cases

    20xxx Series Cases

    Similar to my 1060 series cases, these cases are modular and many of the parts are interchangeable. All components are printed (no screws, pins or other hardware needed). The parts snap together and make a fairly durable case of random things.

  • Step Fountain for Bob

    Step Fountain for Bob

    I saw something like this in a dog video some time ago and thought what a great project to try to remake for 3D printing. It was a little ambitious for me but in the end, it works super well. One of my dogs (Bob) just loves it. Albeit I can’t turn my back on…
