BUILDING A HOVERCRAFT #1 - LEARNING

I've been asked a lot to make a hovercraft so Gearbest sent me these so I could do it. Those are very nice little motors and work great so If you feel like it, take a look here:

ZOP Power LiPo Battery 11.1V 6000mAh 3S 35C

RC Quadcopter Propulsion System - EMAX RS2205 Motors + LittleBee 30A ESCs + Propellers

 

I've spent around 70€ only in plastic in this project but this thing could crash into a wall and the wall would break, I need to redesign everything so it is much lighter. Also I'd like to do it in only one piece. I've realised that I need much less space Inside than I previously thought so I think I can make it smaller but still powerful. It'd be great If I could do it so anyone with a CR-10 or any other printer of similar volume could print one. 

 

Before anyone asks, I'm planing on releasing the Fusion360 files once it is done because it'd be great to see people making one of these. I think I can make a good enough hovercraft so, we'll see. 

This is how the thing should have looked like if this design worked. I had to put this here before I delete it in an iterative design frenzy.

I've used almost all my printers to make this project because of the amount of parts that I needed, If you are interested you can check them out here:

CR-10 - A reliable workhorse.

Anycubic Mega I3 - The Ultrabase is like magic

CR-10 Upgraded

Tevo Tornado 2017 - Really impressed about the hotbed, things really stick to that.

I hope you enjoyed the video, Thanks!!!

 

 

 

#8.9 CABLE CHAIN SUPPORT - BUILDING THE BIG 3D PRINTER

I've received many complains about that cable chain hanging hunky dory, so I've devised an insurmountably clever solution, behold the cable chain tray!!

IVANMIRANDA.COM TRAILER

A small trailer I did for my channel, you know, because you have to have a trailer...

#2 THE STRUCTURE - BUILDING THE BIG 3D PRINTER

In this one I show you the basic structure with which I plan to build this printer. Something like this is what I use in other projects based on the same profile.

#1 HISTORY - BUILDING THE BIG 3D PRINTER

The first chapter of me ending up building a large 3D Printer from scratch. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I did.

IOT DRILL PRESS CONVERSION LIVE VIDEOS

This is my first attempt at a live video with a not so successful ending but a very fun thing to try. Here I leave all the separate videos because the stream kept being interrupted because I forgot to switch my phone to wifi... yep.

IOT DRILL PRESS CONVERSION

I converted my drillpress to do a little realtime online game, what could go wrong with an IoT drillpress?

DIY BIG DIGITAL CLOCK

Using the neat WS28912B leds and an esp8266 I made this 3D printed digital clock. It is a tad bit more than a meter wide and it sets itself on time via the internet. It connects to a nist server on the internet and requests the time to the server, neat uh?

MECHANICAL FLIP-DOT DISPLAY

As weird as it sounds, this is a dot display where every dot is moved by a servo which flips it 180 degrees. Each dot is white on one side and black in the other. This is good for nothing, it is not scalable nor useful but it has been lots of fun to build.

3D PRINTED UKELELE

A 3D printed ukelele, in one piece, in one go, put pegs and strings on it and it can be played. Just like that!
