Here is my PRUSA MKS3 3D printer. PRUSA provides free DIY enclosure designs with IKEA tables and 3D printed parts. The enclosure is necessary to protect against draft and some plastics like nylon require higher ambient temperature to print. I’m printing mostly with PETG filament as it is better suited for mechanical parts and has a higher melting point than PLA.
2010 Solid State Drive Mounting Bracket Design
I added a new SSD to my server, of course the SSD was too small for a standard size bay. Brackets are available online but it is much faster to design and print one. It took about 3 hours to design and print the backet.
2010 Relay Case Design
One of my co-worker asked me to design a protective case for a 5V to 120V relay.
2010 Covid-19 Response
In April 2020 when PPE was in short supply for healthcare workers, I 3D printed and donated 100 face shields to local hospitals. The models were provided as free of charge by PRUSA, NIH, and 3DVERKSTAN.
2020 3D Printed Gearbox
I’m experimenting with 3D printed gearbox designs to build cheap 3D printed robots. The motor (~$1) is running at 40000 RPM this must be reduced to ~200RPM. I printed this design from PLA, but in the future I want to switch to nylon which has better properties (viscosity, higher melting point).
2020 Cooling Fan Mounting Design for IoT Modem
I designed a fan mounting for a modem to prevent it from overheating during stress testing.
