Spiral Chess Set

A spiral themed chess set that can be printed without supports. I modeled this myself and I am currently in the process of printing a set. Any criticism is welcome and appreciated.

This has been a project I have been working on since I first got my printer. I wanted to develop something that could not be manufactured by any other process other than 3D Printing. I was stuck for a while on how to make the Knight, but I am finally happy enough with all of the models to publish it to the public.

Since this set has now been successfully printed, I am no longer marking is as a work-in-progress. If I make significant changes in the future, I will likely upload it as a new file.

Instructions

Printed on a Makerfarm 8" i3v in PLA at 0.20mm layer height. Each print took some time (about 2hr) as they are pretty large pieces, so be prepared for a bit of a long print time. You could scale them down to 75% or so if you are looking for a smaller set.

No supports required!

Two way screw

This is a "screw" that can thread a clockwise and counterclockwise nut. It's just satisfying to play with.

Original idea from: https://youtu.be/cDfMI5ahbJI

Edit:

Some people have asked for various variations of the screw but I haven’t had time to make most of them. I uploaded a longer screw and shorter nuts which were the easiest requests to fulfill. These are untested so print at your own risk, although they should work since I just extended or shortened the original models

There are lots of remixes that might be what you’re looking for so check them out!

Edit 2: I added a cap to seal off the open end of the bolt in case you want to trap the nuts in there. It’s really a tight fit on my well calibrated printer so keep this in mind as you print it, you may have to adjust it slightly to fit properly without it falling off.

Desktop Stomp Rocket & Glider - Angled Launcher

This stomp rocket/glider combo has an angled launch tube, making it great for inter-cubicle warfare. Providing, of course, everyone is wearing safety glasses. Truth be told, the glider is a little on the heavy side, so don't expect long, swooping flights. You can hold the wings under hot water while twisting the tips up or down to trim the flight characteristics.

All parts print up easily using a 0.4mm line width and 0.2mm layer height. The glider has build-in break-away supports under the wings, so no added supports are needed. For a better seal on the air chamber, wipe a thin film of light grease or vaseline on the inside of the cylinder circumference.

To launch, just load the glider or rocket onto the launch tube, lift up the plunger to the top of the air chamber on the launcher, and then smack it down smartly.

CAUTION -- HIGH SPEED PROJECTILE Do not shoot yourself in the face, or anyone else in the face, or anywhere else, for that matter.

Notes on scaling: If you want to scale this up, you need to scale the rocket and plunger by slightly different amounts from the launcher to maintain tight clearances. You can use the following formulas:

LS = desired launcher scale factor (say 1.5)
RS = rocket scale factor
PS = plunger scale factor

PS = 1.01444 x LS - 0.01444
RS = 0.95633 x LS + 0.04367

Or, just use one of these sets of percentage scalings:
Launcher scale: 125%, Plunger scale: 125.4%, Rocket scale: 123.9%
Launcher scale: 150%, Plunger scale: 150.7%, Rocket scale: 147.8%
Launcher scale: 200%, Plunger scale: 201.4%, Rocket scale: 195.6%
Launcher scale: 250%, Plunger scale: 252.2%, Rocket scale: 243.4%
Launcher scale: 300%, Plunger scale: 302.9%, Rocket scale: 291.3%

Kobayashi Fidget Cube - Fat Hinge - Flat

This is a simple remix of pkobayashi's fat-hinged fidget cube. The structure hasn't been changed, I just laid the cubes out flat to make printing easier. Printing the original model always resulted in the top layer of cubes getting fused to the bottom layer. This layout eliminates that problem.

The fat hinges are quite robust, so the cube really stands up to a lot of "fidgeting" - it's quite addictive and oddly therapeutic.

UPDATE 02/2017: Got dual extruders or multi-color/multi-material capabilities? Check out my dual extrusion remix.

UPDATE 04/2017: Updated the model (v1.1) to fix one of the hinges that was very slightly mis-aligned

Post-Printing
Hinge clean-up

Some of the hinges printed a little sloppy due to overhangs, but with minor cleanup they function properly.

Xbox One controller mini wheel

Rack and pinion steering for your xbox controller. 100 degrees of rotation. Enjoy finer control in racing games.

Driving demo: https://youtu.be/Zgiul4cFMUw

What you need:
608 bearing, 22mm diameter, 7mm thick, 8mm center. Get one from that dusty fidget spinner you have laying around...also skateboard bearings
superglue
*the lowProfile pivot requires a 1.2mm metal rod [paper clip/push pin/etc]

It's going to feel strange in the beginning because you probably have hundreds of hours driving with just the stick. Give it time to create new muscle memory.

Notes:

Choose the correct frame for your controller [see image]. If the nexus button [big X in the middle] is surrounded by the face plate you have the modern version. The Older & Elite print may have supports hiding in the gap where the paring button is. Make sure to remove them.

.2 layer height (.4 nozzle)
0 top/bottom layers
16 walls - makes parts solid and stronger than using infill
supports are only needed for the frame

You only need to print 1 frame and 1 wheel.

*The lowProfile pivot and rack files work with the wide wheel.

Tolerances are tight on this model and good layer adhesion is a must. Make sure your printer is properly calibrated before attempting this project.

No one ever reads this far but printing all walls and no infill/top&bottom layers will give you the best chance for a strong print. Like wood, you want long continuous fibers in parallel for strength. Also the surface of the rack will be smoother, so less friction with the frame.

Post-Printing
Assembly:
  1. Snap the rack into the pivot.

  2. Glue the top and bottom edge of the bearing into the frame. Wait for glue to dry. Superglue might leave a white haze on the controller if it's not dry.

  3. Snap the rack onto the frame.

  4. Pop the frame on the controller. It's good practice to hook the front on first and then lock in the back tab. Reverse when removing it.

  5. Slide the pivot down on the stick. The ball joint should be in the center. Align the bottom edge of the pivot so it's parallel with the rack. The stick should return to the neutral position when pushed to either extreme.

  6. Center the wheel on the rack and press it into the bearing.

lowProfile pivot & rack users:
Put a 90 degree bend on the end of a paper clip [3mm tab]. Clip off 15mm from the bend. If you are using a small nail with a head just trim to length. Put the piece up through the rack and press fit into the pivot. If it's loose in the pivot, use superglue. You want some play in the rack side and tight in the pivot.

Forza Horizon 4 Keychain

Summary
Made this keychain for a true FH4 fan :)

The picture you see above was made by changing the filament color from black to orange at the right time (Ender 3 has an option to change filament).

Same effect can be achieved by separately printing the other STLs I've included (top and bottom). That way you could also customize the height of each part before gluing them together.

Cheers!
