Thingiverse citizen Carmiac recently put together a “Bot Bling challenge.” The winner was to receive $35.00 from Carmiac himself and MakerBot kicking in some LED’s! The challenge recently concluded with the winner, Renosis for his “Castle MakerBot.” From Carmiac:
Congratulations to Thingiverse user Renosis for winning the BotBling Challenge! His Castle MakerBot entry has everything, great design, complete files, options galore, and over the top awesomeness. The only thing missing is a moat!
Big thanks and kudos to all the entrants, and stay tuned for my next challenge!
Renosis’ “Castle MakerBot” entry includes:
- Four turrets
- Coat of arms, with 7 different logos in three different positions
- MakerBot logo
- RepRap logo
- Open Source Hardware logo
- Medieval torches
- Stained glass window
- Gen4 Interfacenumeric keypad firmware hack
- Runic keypad labels
He even included all the source files for his work. These included a PDF of the keypad labels, DXF files for some of the logos, Sketchup files for stained glass window, and OpenSCAD files for everything else. If you’ve ever needed to turn a MakerBot into a castle, this is hands down the only way to go.
