COVID-19 – 3D Druck Gesichtsmasken Test

Seit Beginn der Corona-Krise habe ich mir als 3D-Drucker Besitzer Gedanken gemacht wie man den 3D Drucker nutzen kann um Anderen zu helfen. Es gab Berichte über gedruckte Ventile für Beatmungsgeräte (Externer Link: ) oder Türgriffe zum Öffnen einer Tür mit dem Unterarm (Externer Link: Am häufigsten findet man aber Anleitungen zum Drucken…

3dPrint & Airbrush Project: Sonic

After watching the Sonic movie in cinema, I looked for a 3D model to print out and paint.Luckily there is a good model on Thingiverse: Steps from printing to painting in pictures:

Airbrush Color Rack

To organize all my Airbrush colors, I designed and printed a rack for the Vallejo colors.On the right side you can add a airbrush stand to hold the pistol.

Since Christmas I have my own Airbrush pistol and a bunch of air brush colors. I started to paint some of my “failed” 3D prints to get used to it. After watching some tutorials on YouTube decided to start with a tank.I piked a 3D model of a tank from Thingiverse ( and printed it…

Christmas is in the Air….

Today I designed two new Christmas decorations for 3D printing and another one to cut on the CNC. The 3D prints took ~2h each. I changed the filament in the middle to print in two colors. 3D models can be downloaded from Thingiverse:

3D Printed Wheels for Bosch Indego

My Bosch Indego lawnmower sometimes gets stuck when climbing the small hill im my garden. It often happens when the weather was rainy and the grass is wet. The wheels just slip through. I found a great design for new wheels on thingiverse which should improve the traction of the wheels significantly. The print took…

GCodePrintr + Prusa I3 MK3S. A great duo !

My new Prusa I3 MK3S arrived and I run the first few prints.I’m very happy with the print quality and reliability of the printer so far. There are a few improvements I need to add to GCodePrintr to better handle some Prusa specific stuff (e.g. filament run-out). Stay tuned.
