3D Potter Nozzle Caps
Our new 3D Potter 3D clay printer has a number of different nozzle diameters it can use.
When the Nozzle is on the printer and the tube is loaded with clay, we needed to somehow seal the nozzle when not using the printer.
Something so simple proved to be complicated. How to get it to stay on and how to seal it.
I finally came up with a PLA 3D printed cap that had a bolt that could be tightened to the nozzle.
I then printed a elastic cone for the inside of the cap, using our Form 2 Resin printers.
Always satisfying to complete a design that works.

The Ultimate Blade Sharpener
This one came from Thingiverse… ( link > ) the ultimate blade sharpener. Thank you to Tom Jones of Techtomics for sharing the model. The sharpening block is designed to use 50mm strips of wet/dry paper or sandpaper for utimate flexibility and cost effectiveness when sharpening blades of different purposes and grades.
Philip's - GPS Case
Philip needed a case for his GPS device. He first scanned the GPS on our high resolution 3D scanner. The scanned 3d object was then brought into Rhino 3D software, where Philip then modelled the case for it. The model was then output on our Ditto 3D printers.

Bandsaw Replacement Handle.
The bandsaw in our CNC room, had a broken lever to adjust the plate tension. An easy solution, build one in 3D a print it out. So fun!
Form2 3d Print UV/Heat Curing Box.
The Form2 3D prints must be cured at 60 degrees and under a UV light after printing. The options are a Formlabs Cure box for $936 or build our own for $40.
- Pink foam construction to insulate.
- Lamp head with 60 watt bulb is covered in foil. Brings box to 60 degrees.
- UV LED lamp to cure.
- Solar powered turntable to rotate parts while curing.

Laser Air Vent Shutoff
With our two lasers sharing the exhaust system, we need to shut the vent off to the small laser when not operating.
I came up with this manual shut off system using hardware store fittings and some 3D parts I designed and printed.
Odds & Ends
B. My closets particle board doors bottoms and tops had disintegrated, leaving the spring loaded pins useless. The solution was to laser cut and screw in these wood panels.
C. My older laser printers paper flap snapped. Because it is under tension, glue would not repair it. A quick drawing and a quick print, problem solved.
