printable stitchmarks for knitting

Nikolaus Gradwohl2011-08-07T21:52:50+00:00

I needed a stitchmark for knitting my arigurumi and as a makerbot-operator I don't go and buy small plastick stuff - I print it :-)

And so I designed a stitchmark myself. Here is the openscad or the stl version, if you want to print one yourself

3D-Printed Brush-Holder

Nikolaus Gradwohl2011-04-25T08:21:36+00:00

Bathroom-real-estate is a very limited resource in our flat, so I designed a brush-holder that can be glued to the wall and printed it on my makerbot.

I really like how a 3D-printer helps from getting "would be nice if .." into "cool - lets try it"

you can download the brushholder openscad source or the exported brushholder stl

Custom Cookie Cutters for the Makerbot

Nikolaus Gradwohl2010-06-27T19:34:00+00:00


there is a new version of the CookieCutter-Editor!

Recently some very awsome cookiecutter-designs started to show up on thingiverse (like the escher cookie cutter or the jigsaw cookie cutter, and many more) (and one of the local radiostations has played "last cristmas", because it's only 6 months till x-mas O_o )

So i thought about how the generation of such custom cookie cutters could be simplified and i developed a custom cookie cutter generator in processing.

Click here to download the processing sketch.

Basically it's a very very simple vector graphic programm, where you can design the cookie form you want to have. to export the design as a stl file press the letter 'e'

this is my day 26 project for 30daysofcreativity

This is what the cookie-cutter-editor looks like


This is what the generated stl file looks like

And this is what the printed cookie-cutter looks like (still have to fiddle around with my skeinforge settings a bit)

GEB for 3d-printer (Part 2)

Nikolaus Gradwohl2010-06-02T20:12:00+00:00

I printed the GEB-Logo I design Yesterday on my makerbot. It worked quite well - nearly no curling at the bottom layer this time.

but as soon as it was printed, i droped it to the floor - not so good :-( at least I could glue the pieces back together long enough to make some photos
