I really can't without all the measures. I can Imagine them but won't work without a github of the parts (that should happen in 6monthsnor so I suppose).

Anyhow I'm developing it all. Might not even work but still :D

Useful upgrades of life. And here I was, thinking it would be fun to print a handle to replace the broken one on the fride xD

Hey who said that replacing a fridge handle can't be useful _and_ fun :)

(left original .stl, right the finished fridge handle)

@Nicolinux, double win; and submitting an entry and solving someone elses problem! @Titus, is this the style you had in mind? Maybe you can inspire some other contributors as well ;)

No, though the shape is different, I was thinking more off a functional non esthetic part.

Close to two weeks to go, curious to see what other type of upgrades we will see!

Initially I figured I would see upgrades to cars / car-kits, fixtures, things around the house / office and maybe even cats :p

Alright, I have quite some spare time and I'll use it to spam this contest with "useful" entries :p

Hey wayit, if you modify the hand to fit 2.85mm filament in there, then it could be used to "park" the filament after you have removed it manually (because if you let it go half the roll might unroll).

Here is my contest entry. I upgraded my Ultimaker 2 with a custom enclosure. All parts are printed with the Ultimaker 2 with the Ultimaker Metallic Grey. The design is complete with openable upper lid, openable front door, and HEPA filtration unit. Because my Ultimaker 2 is my baby, I designed the enclosure to be mounted by friction only - no screws or holes penetrate the Ultimaker.

Wurl, this does not technically count as an entry, but a solution to something that was really bugging me, namely the bowden tube distorting horribly.

In order to calculate how many rubber bands I needed and what tension would be required, I used a complex method with essentially involves grabbing several at random and agonising over the colour choice. Works a charm.
