Thingyverse, Can't claim this one. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:151118

I'm still working on my first custom tool holder. It takes a little while to learn what works and what doesn't in terms of printing.

Re: My Felix is on the way.

That one turned out pretty well. I printed it at 50%. When I tried to print it at 100% I ended up with a blob of plastic wrapped around the extruder after 4 hrs of printing.

Re: Simplify3D review

Bearing in mind I'm not 4 weeks into owning a printer... The software that came with the printer was difficult to understand and adjust the slicing. simplify was easier for me to understand and I've had much more success with my prints.

Re: Uses for an old FAX - The FAX Light

Most android phone will charge in a 500ma charger but the iPhone tend to like 1000ma or better and the iPads need even more.

I've got a very similar motor from photocopier. Might put this one on the soon list.

A couple of weeks on, and I've just about printed everything that has caught my eye on thingiverse. Tonight I thought I'd have a go at designing a project from scratch.
