Pinshape contest week 6


In this week we have some prints full of imagination and festive air. Let us have a look!

Material Type: PLA

Layer Height: 0.2 mm

This is a Christmas Tree bauble with screw top which allows the hollow to act as a container for little gifts/secrets. It’s designed it this way because a solid bauble seemed a waste of filament and Secret compartments are cool. Besides, the more parts, the more colours you can have.

the American Craftsman Bungalow Birdhouse - 3D Printed by bienenstocker

Print Time: 50 hr(s)  

Material Type: Pla

Extrusion Temperature: 181.0°C  



 This is an American Craftsman Bungalow Birdhouse!

This birdhouse features two entrances, upper ventilation through the chimney and windows as well as sloped drains in the base to allow fluid to run out. There are multiple interior platforms built in to the corners so birds can snuggle in places where wind is unable to blow across them. Along with the veranda, there are also three perches for birds to hang out on.

There are two hefty center-aligned screw slots for tree mounting and for extra stability, there are two decorative support trusses so keep it from going anywhere!

This classy casa is designed to print without the use of support material. Even the body prints as a single piece! The base, which includes the porch for the veranda, slides in from the front and comes to a rest with the columns mating with the beam of the roof.

This can of course be proportionately scaled, however it was designed to best accommodate small birds like finches, blue-jays, chickadees and the like.
