Brendan and Mark-5's News Dog prototype features a 3D printed shell that houses an Internet-connected thermal paper printer.
Instructions for the internal assembly coming soon.
Stephanie and H1-H0's Jewelry includes a pendant, ring, and earrings, featuring a pattern that is based on a mathematical formula known as "Fermat's spiral".
These pieces can be downloaded or printed in metal and other materials using the Shapeways service. (Standard pendant chain and earring hooks can be added to complete the pieces.)
Formulas for the spiral were generated using Rhino Python.
George and ALIC3-D created this planter and handle combination that can be hung on a cabinet door. The main part of the planter sits atop a smaller knob that can be screwed into place. There's a reservoir at the bottom for water.
This piece can be ordered in ceramic (pictured) from Shapeways, or built in plastic.
Nathan and Iris-7's beach sandals can be printed from files posted on Thingiverse.
These sandals are designed to perfectly fit Nathan's feet, but you can experiment with scaling to modify them so they fit your own.
Emilie and Claude-8's chess pieces are made with forms that won't collapse when printed with a paste-like substance such as cheese. Claude-8 is a special robot who can print pieces made out of cheese, but if your printer uses plastic, then you won't be able to eat these pieces at home!
Modular Hamster House
Charles and NiXie's hamster house is made from modular components that can be configured to suit a hamster keeper's needs.
The parts you see here can be printed in plastic from files that will be posted on Thingiverse and Git Hub shortly.
The clear tubes and capsules were printed and then polished by the i.materialize service. Typical home desktop 3D printers may not be able to print parts that look as clear as this, so you may want to add additional holes to the file to have a better view of your hamster.
This is the sheep that LEO makes from Carla's drawing.
The white parts and black parts should be printed separately and then assembled.
The legs should be oriented so that they bow inwards toward the center of the sheep.
Here's a bit about the design process on MAKE: "Sheep Shape: Designing a Divine 3D Ovine for 'LEO'"
