Thingiverse user sirmakesalot has been busy in the last month, with several good uploads, and a few more soon, he tells us.
I really like one of his recent Thingiverse additions in particular, this three-legged chair.
This is especially cool for a couple reasons. The first is why Greg made it. As a person with a disability, he wanted to draw attention to the idea of something being disabled. This chair, as he puts it, was “born without one leg.” It turns out this was a project that became real furniture in his home (the final product is a beauty, go check it out), and the chair is fully functional. It stands upright without the need for the rest of the fourth leg.
The other cool thing is that Greg didn’t design this to make on a MakerBot. He designed it in Rhino for a class and ultimately made it out of wood. However, he shared the design file with the world on Thingiverse and now someone could easily MakerBot it if they wanted to. The original may be in Greg’s living room, but you can have a sirmakesalot 3 legged chair of your very own.
