Save pangolins

Pangolins now are facing critical crisis as they are closing to extinct. In fact, humans are the murderers of this disaster, superstition and greed are the main reason to cause this massacre.
Pangolins, the mammals covered in tough and overlapping scales, are actually far from aggressive. Their scales provide good defense against predators in wild. However, they’re considered the world’s most hunted animal because people believe that the meat is prized for medicinal ingredient and the scales help curl impotence.
Nowadays, the numbers of pangolins are less and less, some people eat them only for the reason of showing their ostentatious wealth, what they do to these helpless animals is to make them approach to endangered. Although International trade in pangolins has been banned by CITES since 2000; and are listed them as 'protected species' in most Asian home states, scaly anteaters are still threaten with smuggling and poaching. Pangolins’ disappear would not be the result we expect to see, only when strictly implement of law enforcement on punishing these poachers and pangolin-eaters would effectively bring down the crisis of extinction. This is our latest chance to save pangolins, and please never make science predictions come true.

Pangolin is a really skillful and difficult work that I have spent a lot of time on it. It has been passed at least six editions before presenting to all of you. What I was trying to challenge is an artwork with both perfect appearance and function. It was a little struggle for me to share this work at the beginning since I’ve fallen in love with it when it’s first done and stood in front of me. At this moment, what I am wondering more is to let you firsthand it, holding and feeling the variation with actions. Enjoy and I believe you’ll like it.

Same file will be uploaded to http://fastlab.tw/, (Institute for Information Industry, III), which is a 3D works sharing website, welcome all 3D players upload your works and have fun here!

穿山甲正面臨迫切的危機,牠們走在快速滅絕道路上,人類是這場災難的兇手,迷信與貪婪是屠殺的原因。

穿山甲這個性情溫和的動物,全身佈滿鱗片,這些鱗片在野外對於保護自己有些幫助,但是身上的鱗片也是牠們被獵殺的因素。因迷信穿山甲的鱗片有醫療與壯陽的效用,導致穿山甲這無辜的動物被瘋狂獵殺。也因為野外的穿山甲越來越少,所以穿山甲成了昂貴的食物,有些人僅僅是為了炫富而食用穿山甲,這樣的行為也把穿山甲推上最後的滅絕之路。雖然現在穿山甲在多個國家及地區均禁止出口及貿易,但是走私與盜獵依然存在!落實執法,逮捕並懲處這些盜獵者及食用者才能真正解決穿山甲的危機。科學家認為亞洲的穿山甲可能將於20年內滅絕!這不是我們想要的結果,現在就是解救穿山甲的最後機會。請別讓科學家的預言成真。

這個作品我花了很多的時間,是一個難度很高的作品,自開始到完成創作至少修改了6個版本,不停地推翻與重建,因為我在挑戰一個美與機能都要兼具的作品。所以當我完成這個作品時,也同時愛上這個作品,因此有些捨不得分享出來。但我更期望朋友們也能夠親自體驗我的感受,能將牠握在手中,感覺牠的觸感、聲音與各種動態的變化。當你下載了並列印這作品時,願你也能像我一樣愛上這個作品。

同樣的檔案我也分享於 http://fastlab.tw/ 這是台灣資訊策進會的3D分享網頁,希望各位3D玩家也能慢慢豐富這個地方。

Porter Filter Mount for Silvia, E61, LaPavoni, Francis Francis etc.

This is a mount for placing grouphead from silvia (E61 Grouphead) and La Pavoni onto the machine by magnets and a discrete rail, or using screws and mounting them onto the wall or other surfaces near the coffee machine.

Pick the file(s) you like and print them. Either the small for La Pavoni, Francis Francis (57 mm) etc. or the bigger one for Silvia or other E61 group heads.

-------------------------------- DESCRIPTION ----------------------------------
Update 20 Jan 2017:
Redesigned on-machine mounts to make them printable (using support) without having to clue on the rail. They hang at a good distance, and the backplate material has been trimmed away for a nicer design. Enjoy !

WALL MOUNT:
If you want to wall-mount take the design with build-in screw holes.
Simple use 2 or 4 screws to fasten it onto the wall. Voila. Print more if you have more than 1 handle.

MACHINE MOUNT:
(Picture missing)
Print the design without the screw (since you won't need the holes), and also print the glue-on-rail. Glue this to the backside, and it can carefully be pressed onto the edge of the machine with a snug fit. It fits all stainless-steel casings of about 1-2 mm thickness.
I've used 1mm thick and 10 mm diameter neodymium magnets (very cheap on eBay). These can be press-fitted into the part, and will secure the mount even better than just the glue on rail.

I use this design myself, and have made a version for Pavoni handles as well as Francis Francis (Its the same).

If you have a specific wish, i can quickly change the design to accommodate for other handles as well. Feel free to post a comment.

123D Exported Odroid XU4(from the official STEP sources)

I loaded the base STEP file in Autodesk 123D and exported as STL.
Will do the same with the top.
I will publish the top later after I print it.

It prints fine as long as you use supports on the raft(because of the tiny feet).

Deer Head 3 Piece remix

A colleague of mine is into hunting and this was a print for him, I was wanting to print the horns and body a different colour so I cut out the antlers and made a wall mount for it. The mount has a recess so you can't mess up the alignment and the antlers are fairly easy to line up also. Printed in PLA on a Kossel Mini.

Case for Raspberry Pi with Adafruit LCD display


Based on Anoved's revision of Jeremy Blum's nice design, with the following updates:
- Right side finger bevel for easier access to right button (watch Jeremy's Blum's Youtube vid).
- closed a gap for the 2 halves near the 2 circular connectors
- adjusted the HDMI bevels
- tighter fit for the LCD from above (photo below still shows a small gap; the .stl file is 2 mm smaller on the right)
- button opening smaller, now covering the IC and protecting the contrast pot some.
