Five New(ish) Baubles!

A thousand pardons, my friends. I stepped over my personal Schwarzschild radius and fell into an art singularity over the last two weeks.

Some light has escaped; peer into the Scrying Pool to see what I’ve been working on, among other things. That particular opus is still gnawing the inner walls of it’s chrysalis, so #staytuned for another update, coming soon.

I’ve managed to zeldovich a few crumbs from beyond the event horizon and stuff them into the Baubles section of The Forge with the remainder of my 3d-modeled miscellany. They are, in no particular order:

The Tinkeriffic BB Bearing, cousin to the 40mm spool spindle and 32mm spindle, all of which use Tinkertoy rods and 4.5mm BB’s to provide a smooth ride for your filament spools.

Magnetic Pocket Gears! that use these magnets to freely rotate while sticking to clothing. I’ve got these fellas on Shapeways too, in case you’d like a set in stainless steel, gold, or silver.

And finally a Bonsai Gibbon, designed specifically for the Lovely and Talented Mrs. Zheng3’s winter hobby but made available to lovers of pines and primates everywhere.

How do I get my pennies so shiny? Vinegar? Hells no. H2C2O4 FTW, y’all.

The blogging backlog is cleared, so watch this space for new models. I’ve got three or four new concepts in the hopper.

Rock Out With Your Cock Out

I’m taking a little break from designing Magic: The Gathering tokens to design this 3D printed cock ring before my enthusiasm for the idea peters out. It’s a simple design, so it shouldn’t be too hard on your printer.

download I already had 90% of the rooster model from my Flamingo Among Chickens design, so it wasn’t much work to give it some feet and attach it to the base from my wildly-successful Nose Ring.

Printing at 100% scale fits on an average adult ring finger and is easy to put on and remove. An 85% scale print would comfortably fit an adult pinky.

I’ve got plenty more models, including the Nose Ring over at The Forge. Check ’em out.

A thousand quatloos to the first person to print this design in wood.

3D Printed April Fools’ Gags

The rolling format of this blog is such that a model might slip through the cracks if you missed it the first time around, so here are three designs I did a while ago that are apropos for April Fools’ Day.

Wanna see my nose ring?

“Wanna see my nose ring?”

So begins my kids’ newest favorite gag.

You can download the STL for this model and print it yourself. Print in two pieces and then snap together. A little glue might be helpful but probably isn’t necessary.

It’s sized for an adult finger but as long as you scale the nose and the ring equally, resizing for smaller hands shouldn’t be a problem.
