Poppa ghost, momma ghost, and baby ghost. This spooky family was printed in new MakerBot® Glow-in-the-Dark PLA Filament. They're so cute, they just might haunt your dreams. **Update** I flattened out the bottom of the ghosts to make printing rightside up easier. Depending on your printer, you may be able to print without supports now! The original models are still included for those who enjoy the appearance of nice drapery, truly one of the finer things in life.

Merge two shapes together into a wasp-waisted vase. Customize the number of sides, size, and shape of both halves of the vase along with the position and radius of the constriction point to develop a unique geometrical design. Intended to be printed with zero infill and zero top layers (or, just stop your printer around 90%). --- Part of my [Customizable Containers](http://www.thingiverse.com/anoved/collections/customizable-containers) series.

I noticed one of those children's toys with an animal where you push the base and the animal collapses. As usual I immediately said "i can print that!" :) This should be possible to print without support on most printers. Additional requirements: = Wool of your choice. Big spring that fits inside the base. Nylon or thin string that is fairly strong. Instructions: = Print the build plate. Take thin (but strong) thread through from the base to the head (Inner base->Outer base->Big flat 1/2 bead->Leg bead->Leg bead->Body->Neck bead->Head). tie around wool and thread back down in reverse (leaving through the other hole). Ditto for the hind quarters. I tensioned it by putting the big spring inside, then pushing the inner base up while pulling the strings until the body stood by itself and the inner base was slightly recessed into the outer base. I pulled each string over the bottom lip, then using a rubber band I strapped the strings to the outside of the outer base and used superglue on each of the strings where they leave the holes on the inner base. Wait until dry, then trim the strings down to size. The poor horse should collapse if you push the inner base, then recover when you release. It should also stand on it's own without the strings at the bottom interfering. Fluff the wool hair to give the look you want. Give it a whirl and let me know what you think? Also suggestions for other projects! TODO: = Find out why some slicers causes glitches around the eyes. Adjust hole sizes for thinner string. It would be awesome if I could print the spring - seems a bit of a challenge to make decent printable springs though.

A very small and inexpensive robot. 4 axes plus gripper. Build on 9g micro servo. The robot can be controlled by remote control, Arduino, etc I see that there are different diameter on the shaft from the servo. If the gear does not fit I'll fix a new one. Just send me the diameters of the shaft.

Ellindsey created Tardis Transformer V2 2 days ago

I designed the original version of this as a challenge to see if I even could. While successful (and vastly more popular and attention-getting than I expected by far) it had a lot of design issues. It was huge, took over a pound of plastic to create. It was fragile and wobbly, wouldn't stand up unsupported, and tended to fall apart if you picked it up wrong. Since then I've been completely redesigning it, to be simpler to make and more rugged, something that can actually be used as a toy, that doesn't cost a fortune to print. This design is scaled to two-thirds the size of the original. It takes about one-third the plastic to print. It has about half as many parts, and is easier to assemble. The transformation sequence is simpler. Thanks to some interlocking tabs, the toy holds together very firmly both in robot mode and in Tardis mode. Due to the reduced weight and the redesigned joints, the robot easily stands on its own unsupported. On the downside, it's can't be posed as freely as the original - there are a lot fewer axis of freedom in the joints, especially in the legs. That's the price you pay for something made completely of plastic. This was actually a much harder design than the original - it's a lot harder to design a durable toy than something that just has to look right. The toy stands about eight and a half inches tall in robot mode. In Tardis mode, it's four and a half inches tall, and two and a half inches wide. At 25% infill it takes 6 ounces of plastic to print, most of it blue. As with the original, this toy can be built with entirely printed parts, doesn't need to be painted, and holds together without screws or metal pins. You can still optionally insert scraps of white construction paper in the windows to make them white, and print labels for the various decals. While it can be assembled without glue, I do recommend using a few dabs of glue on the locking tabs if you are actually going to play with it. Original was printed on my custom Rostock derivative printer. Printed in PLA, using a 0.5mm nozzle and 0.3mm layer height, 2 shells and 25% infill. Autocad source files are included. Transformation sequence, more pictures, and other details at drewsrobots.blogspot.com/2013/07/tardis-prime-version-2.html I have uploaded plates of all blue, black, and grey parts. These should be able to easily print on a machine with a 200mm bed. In addition, you will also need to print the abdomen in white and the bowtie in red. Major update on 7/11/2013: Slightly redesgined nearly every part for better printability and durability. Redesigned the elbow joint to keep the forearms from falling apart as easily and to make it easier to get it into Tardis mode. Got rid of the sliding black bar mechanism in the back, that idea didn't work out well, replaced it with two smaller fixed bars instead. Added two thinner versions of the fist inserts in case you have trouble getting the standard ones in. 9/18/2013 update: I have modified nearly every part on the model to improve printability, ease of assembly, durability, and show-accuracy. Cleared up some issues with the leg and hip parts interfering and redesigned the fist sliders. It should be easier to assemble and look better now. I also rearranged the blue parts onto two trays that should be possible for any machine to print. 12/11/2013 update: Major tweaks for printability and easier transformation. I've added in a linkage between the abdomen and the head pivot so that the abdomen automatically slides up into the torso when the head pivots forward, and selective interference between the shoulder bars and abdomen mechanism to make the transformation process easier and more obvious. I eliminated all the fragile vertical tabs in the torso and shoulder blocks and made the shoulder ball-in-socket joint more robust. I have also completely redesigned the hips to make them easier to print and add a little bit of waist rotation. The legs and knees have been tweaked to stand more reliably and fit better together in Tardis mode. Also many other minor changes for durability and ease of priting and assembly. The footleft, footright, hips, midback, torsobar, and bowtie pieces have optional versions with added support for more reliable printing if your printer has trouble with overhangs. I have also now finally added parts for a Sonic Screwdriver gun. The parts for that are fairly fragile and difficult to print, so it's only recommended if you're confident in your printer's ability to print thin vertical pieces. It also has nowhere to go when the toy is in Tardis mode, but that's true of most transforming toys anyway.
