Functional Print: End Mill Organiser

Intro I was on a 5S mission at work and our small desktop CNC mill had a box full of cluttered end mills. It was time to sort them neatly and a quick search found a neat little tray. I quickly printed this out and then realised that actually whilst it looked good it onlyContinue reading “Functional Print: End Mill Organiser”

Big Print Series: 1:10 scale T-Rex

As a kid I always loved dinosaurs and like many others the T-Rex held a special place in my heart. I loved going to the Natural History museum or other such places and seeing the posed skeletons (real or not) on show! Now as an adult I have the means to produce my own andContinue reading “Big Print Series: 1:10 scale T-Rex”

Klicky release for EVA3 and EVA2 on the VCore3

Intro What is a Klicky probe? Why do I need one? How do I get one? Is there a mount available? Just some of the questions people ask when the words Klicky probe are mentioned on the Discord channels or Facebook groups for the RatRig printers. Well today I’m hopefully going to answer those questionsContinue reading “Klicky release for EVA3 and EVA2 on the VCore3”

Functional Print: Product photography stand

I received some feedback recently that suggested I work on improving the photo quality of printed parts I use in reference to print quality etc. It was a fair point and one that I hadn’t yet put much thought into. Thankfully someone else already solved the problem! Download the parts here! The only other thingsContinue reading “Functional Print: Product photography stand”

Sherpa Micro mod for EVA3

Continuing my EVA3 mod series, today I’m going to show you how quickly and easily you can modify the EVA3 platform to be able to use the Sherpa Micro using Fusion360. I decided to produce a short video for this one, I apologise for the quality but you have to start somewhere right? Download theContinue reading “Sherpa Micro mod for EVA3”

Functional Print: Adaptive controller for one handed PS4 control

A little while ago I saw a post on twitter from a gentleman named Caleb who runs the Controller Project. Since supporting nhs during covid by printing visors and ear savers my printer has been used for industrial prints (for my day job), printer parts and printing stuff for fun. It seemed like time toContinue reading “Functional Print: Adaptive controller for one handed PS4 control”

Functional Print: Grippy Doorstop

The other day I got fed up of tying to work out which door in the office was currently using the doorstop… Why we only have one doorstop is beyond me but here we are conveniently falling into another excuse to use the 3d printer to make something functional! Anyway A search using Yeggi quicklyContinue reading “Functional Print: Grippy Doorstop”

Ratrig VCore-3 cable support

Does your VCore-3 fail to stand to attention? Does its droop stop you performing? Well viagra probably isn’t the answer but my £5 cable support mod is! It’s a problem all of us that have built a VCore-3 are all too familiar with and the bigger variants suffer even more than the smaller ones. WhilstContinue reading “Ratrig VCore-3 cable support”

EVA Klicky probe (development and testing)

What do you do when you have had enough with the other probe options available to you? Find the best affordable option around and adapt it to the EVA system of course!# The root of my problem is that my main machine the VCore3 regularly swaps roles from printing ABS parts in an enclosure toContinue reading “EVA Klicky probe (development and testing)”

Triangle labs orbiter 1.5

When I started down the route of converting my custom built and badly aging coreXY into the RatRig VCore3 I aimed to re-use as much as possible from the original build. One of those parts was the extruder. I had a Mellow BMG wind which was giving me zero issues on the old printer andContinue reading “Triangle labs orbiter 1.5”
