It's a while I last did some hardware project and I had an idea of building a gimbal in my head for some time now. And suddenly I discovered somebody who was selling brushless gimbal motors for cheap. That was the first impuls. I ordered these motors and started to study what is needed to control the gimbal and started to design the construction.
Wiki says: OpenSCAD is a free software application for creating solid 3D CAD (computer-aided design) objects. It is a script-only based modeller that uses its own description language; parts can be previewed, but it cannot be interactively selected or modified by mouse in the 3D view. An OpenSCAD script specifies geometric primitives (such as spheres, boxes, cylinders, etc.) and defines how they are modified and combined (for instance by intersection, difference, envelope combination and Minkowski sums) to render a 3D model. As such, the program does constructive solid geometry (CSG). OpenSCAD is available for Windows, Linux and OS X.
Before christmas 2017 we had LDTPardubice meeting and I wanted to bring there some traditional czech christmas sweets, but in original shape. In shape of the LDTPardubice logo. In the same time, my girlfriend was visiting her friends in Soria - Spain and had similar idea: czech sweets in shape of the Soria horse.
Lightweight watchband for original Pebble watch, but also customizable to adapt any standard watchband widths. Customization can be done by changing parameters in OpenScad source file, ore using Thingiverse's Customizer.
Band si designed to print with links already assabled together, so no postprocessing needed. You just connect band to watch using their standart axis.
I built my own 3D printer based on open hardware RepRap printer Rebelix X2, but improved by my own design customizations. Printer consists of plastic parts made by similar 3D printer (I used 3D printers at Czech Technical University), standard aluminium profiles, stainless steel rods and bunch of nuts and screws.
