I’ve been looking around for the right stand that I can keep at the office on my desk! We are rather fond of octopus here at ItWorks so it seemed appropriate to have a octopus phone stand to go along with our other octofriends! And of course it must be in pink! Found the designs on Thingiverse . They say you can use adhesive to hold it down and keep it from moving about, so I’m thinking one of those command adhesive strips would do the trick! Made with pink PLA filament!
Work continues on the build of a pink Lulzbot Mini 3D printer. Nearly all the parts are printed, and the chassis has been refinished.
Because of Lulzbot’s open source approach, you own your printer, and you can build modify, experiment and repair it yourself!
If you’d like to DIY, ItWorks 3D Print can help you with the Lulzbot Mini Parts you need.
Jodi here! I know it seems like an absurd amount of pink and you are correct! It really is a little overboard, but I love it! I have four boys, five if you include Jamie, so a girls gotta mix in a little bit of pink here and there! It is however doubtful that the pink will deter any of them from using my printer. 😉
Printing the last of the parts. The filament arm was printed on the TAZ 5 as it’s too big for the Mini to print. The rest of the parts can be printed on the Mini.
Cerakote looks like it will work as a durable over-finish on the chassis. We’re using “prison pink” Thanks to Dustin of the hot new local filament manufacturerChroma Strand Labs for this finish. Look for Chroma Strand’s new Inova filament on our site ItWorks3D
Even the bed plate is getting refinished. Now for much re-tapping and uncoating the areas that need to make electrical contact for the Mini’s auto-leveling system. The Ninjaflex bed corners will probably be done in white with the new Mini Flexistruder V2
