    Thanks for your kind words! Something like 1000 people have built the smaller hexapod project worldwide since we launched it about a year ago. Hundreds of those were at schools and STEM camps and the like.

    We actually have a "Vampire" top for the smaller version of this hexapod with huge teeth and could easily scale it up to megapod size. LOL I'm ordering some black filament now.

  • 3D Printer Fire Safety 7 months ago

    I just bought an off the shelf first alert smoke detector with one of their relay units. The relay provides two outputs: one provides power when no smoke is detected, the other when smoke is detected. It was quite easy to take a 20 foot extension cord and wire this up (a few wire nuts and some electrical tape required, slit the center of the extension cord, tap off power to the smoke detector and from there to relay, then output of relay "power when no smoke detected" goes out to female end of the extension cord). You plug one end into the wall, the other end into the 3d printer. When smoke is detected, boom it turns off the printer.

    This was really just a 20 minute project and cost about $50. I'm designing a 3d printed box to house the relay, provide stress relief for the power cord, and make this easier to mount to my wall right above the printers.
