SWAG & CODES - Alien3D Version
- Random candies from Canada supplied by Mad_Monkey
- Trading Cards
Question for existing Maker Box subscribers from Box Mountain - Would you rather get the labels on the sample bags like they've been, or would you like to receive trading cards in the bags? The cards come with a URL to the reveal site, QR code to the reveal site, logo of the filament brand, printing temps and numbered for month and filament number for that month.
Please login to view codes if you received this months UFO.
All filament samples are at least 16 meters in length (This month got 20 meter samples in the Alien3D version as my current machine only makes 20 meter samples =P)
Those looking for a sample spooler, MadMonkey designed this one and it's been my favorite so far https://www.printables.com/model/36621-expandable-sample-spool-holder
Since I went to ERRF I thought it'd be cool to do an ERRF theme this month. 2 Filament brands have been in the UFOs previously, but 2 new companies were found!
Capricorn keeps expanding their filament offerings and has some great colors available. I brought these home from ERRF!
One of the two new filament suppliers included this month, made in the USA in Michigan, they've got some interesting and bright colors (even an Alien Green!)
Another filament I brought home from ERRF, I didn't know that Proto Pasta started recycling their PLA, so I thought this was great!
The second filament from a new supplier, Titan 3D Supplies, a lot of bright colors and even rainbow! I of course went with a sparkly lol
Auto Adjusting Wire Stripper
I bought a set of these a few months ago while working on wiring for the Tesseract and I thought they were an awesome tool to speed up stripping wires, both for 3D printer maintenance and for electronics projects. I hope you find them useful!
+Nano version of the Maker Box received an Arduino Nano
Arduino Piano / Soundboard
Due to a mixup with the supplier, I was sent the December project parts so there's been a last minute scramble. DSK whipped up this piano, and could also be used as a sound board. The MP3 files could be swapped out for other instrument notes, or for other sounds all together!
Project files are now downloadable below, can't wait to see your makes!
- 12 x Momentary Buttons
- MP3 Player Module
- SD Card
- 2W Speaker
- ESP-WROOM-32 Micro Controller
- Jumper wires
- USB-C cable (I thought the controller came with it >.<)
