Project X

Recommended Posts

This is something I've been working on for a while in between other projects. Only a specific sequence of steps will allow access to its secret compartment. Check out the YouTube video linked below to see it in action. 

 

Designed in Sketchup and printed on my UM3, it's made up of 36 individual pieces which snap together.

 

I used a variety of filaments:

  • Ultimaker Nylon, Transparent and Black
  • Ultimaker ABS, Orange, Green and Gray
  • Faberdashery PLA, True Lagoon and Glacier Blue

OK, I finally have the files uploaded to the 3D Prints section. Due to the number of pieces and the complicated assembly process, I created a YouTube video that goes through putting it together, plus some other important information to help make the process more successful. 

 

Keep in mind that printing all of the pieces requires about 150 hours of print time and lots of PVA support, so proceed bravely if you're up to it!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
