As part of my interests in 3D Printing, I also design and share/sell a few different CAD and product designs. Most of these were created using Rhino3D, but others were made using Autodesk Inventor, OpenSCAD, or Python.
Silicone socks for your 3D printer are expensive! Why not make your own? With this easy-to-use mold, 4 individual silicone socks can be cast at once! No more waiting hours to make one at a time. I recommend using MoldStar 31T or Smooth-Sil 945 from Smooth-On, I've had good success with this kind of silicone rubber.
This gearing system design provides an incredibly high and incredibly reliable gear reduction in a very small package. It also uses one of the cheapest and common stepper motors available. And it's entirely 3D printable!
This was designed to replace the stock LCD module on the MK3-series of Prusa printers. I moved the SD card slot to the front for easier access, added a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen for OctoDash/OctoPrint, and integrated a Raspberry Pi directly into the rear of the module.
The stock nozzle which comes with the DustBuster was far too small and inefficient, and without a nozzle, the tip of the dust-buster formed too strong of a seal. I designed a new nozzle with air-channels to prevent a strong seal from forming, while also allowing particles to be sucked in. This was designed primarily to deal with the litter around my cat's litter box.
My wife needed a way to kep long u-posts from tipping over from the weight of her trellised tomatoes. To get around this, I formed a rigid link using a 2x2 lumber post, by securing the post to a bracket designed to fit over the top of the u-post.
25-to-1 Compound Gear Reducer
This was designed with 2 sets of ring gears of different teeth counts coupled by shared planet gears. The sun gear is driven by a motor and the output is reduced by input ring gear’s tooth count divided by the difference in ring gear teeth count.
Another gardening tool, it is a 2x2 foot plate with evenly spaced holes for placing seeds at regular intervals. It also included a secondary plate with pegs to push the seeds into a known depth.
These are 2-part molds for casting silicone socks for 3D printer hot-ends. 2 types were produced, one for E3D V6 hotends, and another for Prusa Mini printer hotends.
