Anyone who’s into 3d printing is probably aware that the PirateBay recently announced a new category on their torrent tracking site for 3d model files, ostensibly for 3d printing, called Physibles. Man do I have a lot to say about that.

So, I think it’s safe to say, I have a 3d printing ‘problem’. I love 3d printing – dodgy prints and wonky extrusions and all – and if I’m not printing something, I feel that I’m wasting valuable print-time!
I’ve got a handful of 3d printing projects on the go at the moment
- A passive coin sorter – darn you, US 1¢ coin vs. 10¢, with your 1mm difference in diameter!
- A hairbrush with replaceable bristles, and interchangable handles – for different firmness and length of bristles, and different, customized ergonomic handles.
- Updates to my glowstick candelabra – collaborating with a smart gent to make a version that can be wired for LED use.
- Trying out the maglite candlestick that someone else on Thingiverse designed
This morning, I had a bit of a wardrobe catastrophe. Nothing dramatic like a snapped thong or an impossible hairstyle – no, I couldn’t find my cufflinks. Anyone who knows me knows I am both messy and forgetful – so it was only a matter of time.
So what did I do? I designed and printed a new pair before I left for work this morning.
Truly, I live in the future.
