My entry for the Thingiverse BIrdhouse Challenge. the American Craftsman Bungalow Birdhouse! This birdhouse features two entrances, upper ventilation through the chimney and windows as well as sloped drains in the base to allow fluid to run out. There are multiple interior platforms built in to the corners so birds can snuggle in places where wind is unable to blow across them. Along with the veranda, there are also three perches for birds to hang out on. There are two hefty center-aligned screw slots for tree mounting and for extra stability, there are two decorative support trusses so keep it from going anywhere! This classy casa is designed to print without the use of support material. Even the body prints as a single piece! The base, which includes the porch for the veranda, slides in from the front and comes to a rest with the columns mating with the beam of the roof. I strongly recommend printing in PLA on a printer with a build platform at least 220 mm long and 150 mm wide. Also there are bridges on this model! My original Replicator can handle them just fine so most printers should. They are around and inch long at their longest. This can of course be proportionately scaled, however it was designed to best accommodate small birds like finches, blue-jays, chickadees and the like.

* modular snap-fit design, no glue required except for the two machine guns * articulated torso, hips, knees, toes, main guns, and missile pods * slide-out canopy contains a secret compartment to hide keys, jewelry, and USB memory sticks * realistic detail * mech stands about 8" tall The Mad Cat MK II is a 90-ton assault BattleMech. It uses its speed and firepower to engage an enemy at the range of its choosing. The default configuration of the Mad Cat MK II features hard-hitting ballistics and a well-blended mix of energy and missile weaponry. The Mad Cat MK II's primary weapons are a pair of Gauss Rifles, each of which can strip off a ton of armor at six hundred and thirty meters. The rifles are supported by two LRM-10s which give the Mech indirect fire capability. For short range combat, four ER Medium Lasers can chew up what's left of the opposition. The Mech's primary role is long to medium range combat, with best performance within 450 meters where all of its weapons can reach the opponent. This model is based on a CAD design by farscape1 (http://www.thingiverse.com/farscape1) and the original concept art from the MechWarrior franchise. MechWarrior is a profession in the fictional universe of BattleTech, a wargaming and science fiction franchise created by FASA Corporation and currently owned by Topps. MechWarriors are individuals who pilot BattleMechs, large robotic war machines that are central to the BattleTech series.
