I tried 3d printing once again. Guess what it is supposed to be!

Great to see you online! Keep the projects coming :)

Re: Barrel connectors, a hot air soldering station might help. With the appropriate nozzle, it allows you to spread or concentrate the heat in a particular area. Jaycar or Aliexpress sell them.

Re: 3D print guess: 1) A miniature representation of an AM radio? 2) SD card holder?

Did you design these parts your self? What kind of 3D printer?

Yes, all of these models are 100% original,
and they were made in a combo of Autodesk 123D Design and Google Sketchup Make,
and were Printed with my Schools XYZ DaVinci Pro 2.1 3D Printer
I hope to eventually buy myself a Tevo Tarantula, as the DaVinci has poor layer adhesion for larger prints.
Also, thanks for the advice on desoldering

Excellent Work DJ, well maybe not so much on the desoldering ;)

I do a bit of design work, mainly in Fusion360.

Hopefully we can meeting up at SWMakers sometime soon.

Yeah, Meeting up would be cool, but the last time I attempted to attend a meeting, it was cancelled a few minutes after I arrived at the location. (it was actually the first permanently cancelled meeting in Busselton, the 26th of May) So would It have to be an Eaton Meetup?

Well done on the video. It looked like the video was tearing along the bottom a bit. Stripping and cleaning a keyboard is quite time consuming!

Thanks! I think the tearing at the bottom is because i had the video recording to auto-rotate, so i will just manually rotate it in post-production next time. and yes, it did take a long time; About 2.5 hours for filming, and about 6 hours for editing (on a laptop as my desktop is currently undergoing some maintenance (this creates a lot of slow loading and exporting/rendering)).

After some research, I found out another way to better desolder. Its called a desoldering braid!

Sorry, I missed the de-soldering question.

Yes, solder wick is good. You can also get a solder sucker. It's a hand held device that when triggered, will suck up molten solder from the tip of the soldering iron. Happy to demo if you want.

PS: A hot air gun is maybe the easiest de-soldering method, but that's not as cheap as the above methods.
