Thresh lantern

I made this piece specifically to mess with my youngest sister.  She’s a fan of thresh and I wanted to make something iconic to lord over her, because even as an adult, I’m still a big brother.    I found a model of the lantern on my mini factory that looked like it would work…

3d printing on fabric

Some folks at my makerspace have been passing around this link  showing a maker who figured out a fun way to 3d print onto fabric.  His technique is to use a meshed fabric, lay down his first layer, then insert the fabric and resume printing the rest of the print.  I had to figure out…

No Face

I’m trying something a little different this time and made a build video. I found the mask on thingiverse and printed it at 200% X&Y and only 100% Z to make it larger but flat. Enjoy!

Deku Scrub

I’m slowly building up a collection of video game masks in our game room, but the Deku mask is destined for our dinning room opposite Majora’s mask.  I found this STL on My Mini Factory and had to modify it just a tad to get it to print in PETG without supports, mostly just thickening…

Moto 360 travel charger

I enjoy my Moto 360 watch, and the wireless charging system is pretty good, but the charger isn’t the most convenient thing for traveling. I wouldn’t say that I travel light, but I travel very organized and the the stock charger would never fit inside one of the bubu wire wraps that I use.  I…

The fifth element stones

Every five thousand years, when the planets align in a specific manner, a great evil is allowed free to attempt to destroy all life. The Mondoshawan have the only weapon known to be able to destroy this evil; The 5th element.  In 2263 they will return with four stones that represent the four elements of earth,…

Leia’s defender sport blaster

When you absolutely, positively have to kill every storm trooper on your diplomatic mission to alderaan, only the Defender Sport blaster will do! My sister is into cosplay, which seems to translate into My sister is into me making costume props for her that she never wears.  Leia’s blaster is the latest in that lineage….
