Hi! Lays Rodrigues here! , I’m Back! ..=)
Today is my return as a writer on 3DPrinterChat, giving you useful(or less then useful) information about 3DPrinting and improving my skills, and maybe yours, in this field that I love so much.
So for my return, I choose to List the 10 most popular models on Thingiverse.
This model helps you to build a 3DScanner and generate the models using Autodesk Remake Software.
The idea is that you use your phone headphones inside the table, and when you start to rotate it, it triggers your camera to take the pictures, taking around 50 pictures on each turn. Them when you have the photos you update to Remake and let it work to build your model. This trick using the headphones is for iPhones, because of this tricky feature on it. But I think if you do a good setup on your Android Camera you can get a similar behavior without the need of the headphones.
This is a result of a scan:
Looks good to me, and you?
Now we move from the useful to the fun! yay!
With this model and a laser, you can project some patterns by quickly moving the handler. Using some math you can do your own projection. I think that kids may like this for 5 minutes and then drop away. But well, still sounds fun to me =D Also, this model is less than a month on Thingiverse, so soon will appear more “coins” of projection.
This model kind remembers me of this:
But the process was automatized xD
Because everyone needs a Hinge:
4: Baby Groot
Well, who remember that months ago Baby Groot got famous on the first trailer of Guardians of Galaxy 2? So a 3DPrint model soon shows up and all 3DPrinting groups got this fever that they needed to print this model, and variations start to appear and soon everyone had a Baby Groot at home.
It is so cute isn’t?
Oh the 3DBenchy, the model that every 3DPrinter owner needs to print at least one time. This model is used to test, calibrate and benchmark your 3DPrinter.
Everyone needs to sand a 3DPrinted model at least once in your life. Even for remove remaining supports or strings that happen during the printing. This Thingiverse thing has a lot of variations of sticks to help you in this process.
This model can hold your lightweight camera or your phone so you can make movies or take photos. Sounds useful if you want to take professional photos of your printed models in a mini studio or even record the printing and release a time-lapse of it. A 3dprint model that can hold things is always useful. =D
And this model looks very well designed to be flexible and be used in many positions.
You can check on how to time-lapse your 3DPrinting work here.
I don’t have any words to describe this.
Like I said before, every 3dprint model that can holds something is useful. So the 9th most popular model on Thingiverse is a Headphone Stand. It’s a well-designed model from Makerbot.
For you, that like to organize all screws, nuts, and others this model can be handy. You can print as many as you wish and stack them, creating a hive of drawers to organize everything that you want. In any size that you may want. Also a well-designed model.
