Day 21 of 30daysOfCreativity - 3D printed spacers

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-06-21T20:59:47+00:00

I'm currently placing a raspberry pi and an AR1010 based radio chip into the housing of a blaupunkt car radio from the 60ties for my friends VW typ 3 wilson. To mount the electronic parts I printed a bunch of spacers which I created using openscad.

Day 16 of 30DaysOfCreativity - 3D printed clothes rail mount

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-06-16T20:13:14+00:00

Today I created a 3D printed mount for a clothes rail of an ikea wardrobe.

One of the original mounts broke and unfortunately ikea has no replacement parts anymore because the clothes rails have a different format in the newer edition of this wardrobe. So I designed and printed my own replacement part as my day 16 project for 30daysofcreativity

I made some cardboard figures using my markers and pastel-chalk. I cut out pieces of a cardboad-box and painted them white. Then I made some sheep and a dragon using and cut them out. Then I printed out some small feet on my 3D-printer (openscad source here)

Generating 3D Objects from Heightfields

Nikolaus Gradwohl2010-03-28T08:39:00+00:00

Back in the old days, when I was a basic hacking teenager, the state of the art technique for getting awsome 3D Graphics on the atari-screen was rendering triangles based on a grayscale bitmap - aka heightfield.

I reanimated this knowledge to generate a 3D object from such a heightfield. so in fact this blog article shows how to take something like this


and turn it into something like this.
