MakerBot OUYA Console Robodock


Two thumbs and robot hands up for the OUYA open gaming platform! For our partnership with OUYA, the MakerBot Design Team crafted a special seat for the hot new console with robot arms and oversized feet that move. Hoist the console on top to serve as the head, and the cables should sit neatly in the internal cavity.

Dashboard Widgets Wall Clock


If you’re a visual type of person, here’s a creative clock for your wall that will keep your creativity delighted. This stylish design was inspired by Mac OSX Dashboard widgets. The clocks internals are from Quartex Push-On movements. The icons, frame and seconds hand actually glow in the dark, while the florescent red hour and minute hands glow vibrant red under black uv lighting. This clock is 140mmx140mm (5.5×5.5″) in size. Enjoy!

Vertex2


This is an updated version of my previous posable robot action figure – thingiverse.com/thing:64131

The joints have been completely redesigned, adding sturdiness with a more realistic degree of freedom so it can now balance on one foot without falling over. It’s also more compact and a slightly different proportion to the previous design.

Update – There’s now an image with Vertex side by side with a Lego Hero Factory figure for size reference.

Update 2 – I’ve uploaded a new upper leg stl that’s not as unnecessarily dense as the previous file so hopefully there shouldn’t be any problems slicing it.

UPDATE 3 – There are 2 new zip folders one contains 3dm files of the whole figure and the other just contains the individual joints. Feel free to use these files to create your own designs.

Update 4 – Inspired by Toy story I decided to add a name onto the foot of the action figure although I used the robots name instead of my own. I’ve added an image to illustrate.

W Engines


No fooling!

Volkswagen wasn’t the first to squeeze the two banks of a V engine together to fit under one cylinder head, but they were the first to wonder what they would get if they put two of THOSE together with a common crank. The result was an engine with four banks of cylinders, which they called a “W” engine (a name that had already been taken by a 3-bank layout, Wikipedia argues the double-vee or WR might describe it better). VW tiptoed in, bringing W8 and W12 engines to market first, but I’m skipping ahead to the ultimate version, the W16. You might recognize this as the layout used by the Bugatti Veyron.

W8/W12 versions now available for download! I will be adapting this new (crossplane!) crankshaft design to fit my VR engine models.
