Hello all,


I wanted to share some of my Solidworks designs that are (mostly) 3D printed. I have designed functional replica props, like this Iris Ring from Star Wars:

And the automatically extending bat from Back To The Future Part 2:

I recreated this robot that can crawl under (some) doors:

I also design and release general purpose 3D printed items like these 2 sizes of linear servo actuators, for people to use in their projects:

I have a YouTube channel, where I show videos on how I design these items in Solidworks and then build them using 3D printing. Check it out if you are interested!


And many of these models are freely available on Thingiverse or Myminifactory. I’d love to hear any feedback or questions people have, so ask away!
