An absolutely awesome 3D printed case for the TS100 soldering iron. It’s a really long print but if you do it in stages it’s not so bad. It uses filament as hinge pins very clever design with multiple configuration options just print the ones you want. Here’s mine:
Yeah man, there’s so many cool prints out there lol
I’m actually trying to print a business card dispensing box to keep the GADC business cards in to stop them getting battered in my drone bag but so far I haven’t managed a successful print as it’s quite a complicated mechanism lol but it’s getting there.
First print was US size business cards so they didn’t fit so found the EU revision and printed that but my print settings were not quite right and the spring mechanism wouldn’t release and I ended up snapping it trying to get it to release.
I’ll have another go when I get some more free time (back at work now lol)
But here’s the thingiverse link to it any ways:
EU revision (still need some parts from the original US version above):
If anybody gives this ago please let me know how you get on
I’ve been using this model as my test print for new filaments for a while now lol granted not quite this big. This was as it is downloaded (life size) was an 8 hour print in my new Transparent Blue TPU I accidentally forgot to scale it down before slicing and figured I’d just let it run to see the result lol
Also once the smaller test prints (of all my different colour and types of filament) are complete I’ve been leaving them around the house for my missus to find in ramdom places just for a bit of fun
