This year, I printed out the popular 3D-Printed Advent Calendar by pleppik, which I have done in past years. However, I made this year’s twice as large. A challenge was a large enough print bed to print out a double-sized Day 25. Thank goodness for the Stacker…
I also started assembling a new addition to the MakerCave, an Inventable’s X-Carve.
Meanwhile, the Shapeoko continues to work on, cutting another set of yokes for the CEIA Magnetometer Storage Dollies.
Using SketchUp, I created a mounting board for my Monoprice Select Mini 3D Printer. I control this printer with an OctoPi inside this enclosure I found on Thingiverse, and wanted something that would make it easy to move it around. I elevated the OctoPi in order to get a better view of the print bed with the attached Logitech C270 webcam. This is what I came up with.
With the design finished, I place a piece of 3/4” MDF onto the bed of the Shapeoko and cut out my design.
Well the Shapeoko worked, I worked on cutting more pieces for the CEIA Magnetometer Storage Dollies on the table saw.
Also I started another artwork on the QuickDraw Bot…
I neatly routed all the cable under the board, and the end result turned out well.
