blablabLAB in London!

The Be Your Own Souvenir campaign continues. Having just wrapped up a spot at Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria, the blablabLAB team is heading to London for Alpha-ville for what should be another great festival. If you’re gonna be in London between the 22nd of 25th of September, you should go check ‘em out, just like the love birds out there in Linz.

Bathsheba on Thingiverse!

Bathsheba, a mathematically-minded sculptor who normally sells individual copies of her designs, has shared a couple of her designs on Thingiverse.  Her work is very well-suited for 3d printing, so these are exciting aesthetic additions to our community.

Bathsheba has been sharing her designs on her own site for some time, but we’re really excited to see her join the Thingiverse community.  Welcome!  And now folks — let’s see if we can print these amazingly intricate designs!

And don’t forget — we’ll see you at World Maker Faire NYC tomorrow!

Dorm Essentials – a 3D Printer

Dorm Doorstop by Tetnum

Dorm Doorstop by Tetnum

Tetnum and his fellow college dorm students tried every doorstop he could find to work on their doors to no avail. The commercial doorstops were too short, would slide, or just plain didn’t work.1 The ones on Thingiverse were getting destroyed by the door closers. Undaunted, Tetnum designed and printed on his trusty MakeBot Cupcake CNC a taller gripping door stop that incorporated the school’s logo.

My cupcake has been running nonstop to make enough for my floor. the doorstops have been in use for 4 weeks and are all holding up.

I could totally see this doorstop as a must-have dorm essential for any incoming college freshman. It’s thin and can be stowed away anywhere in a small dorm room, useful for keeping the door open or from letting it swing open accidentally, and personalized for their college. In a dorm room where space is at an absolute premium, it makes sense to have a 3D printer where you can create objects on demand, rather than have to stock up on things in advance. Rock on Tetnum!
