I thought it would be good to start a topic on 3D PRINTING as i have recently taken interested in getting one after months of saying i had no use for one . . . now im eager to see if i can make anything to better my HA setup or someone elses…
Sooooo this leads to the questions:
1.) Have you ever used a 3D Printer to make anything to better the SmartThings setup? be it a mount like @Tyler for a motion sensor or something a bit larger like a snazzy case for an Arduino/ThingShield project or an in wall mount for a tablet running SmartTiles.
2.) Is there anything you would like to see created or create yourself to better your SmartThings Setup?
i hope this topic can lead to a great mix up of ideas and hopefully help people make there ideas a physical product through the help of others etc etc cheers, kyle
I searched for this topic today because I was thinking of ways to mount my old android phones on the wall. Has anyone designed/printed an enclosure for old smartphones so that it can be mounted on the wall? I have a few ideas in my head like:
design the enclosure so it can be mounted on a standard switch location
design the enclosure so it will fit some common smartphones, S3, S4, iphones, etc.
following #3 with an option to leave small room in the back to fit a wireless charger
an option for the enclosure to sit on a desk/table
That’s just for starters… makes me want to try and learn how to 3D model with Sketchup and see what I can come up with.
