April 2022 UFO

This month is officially the 4 year mark for Alien3D, and 3 months away from 4 years of UFO's!

While y'all probably won't notice much of a difference on your end, on my end I've been working on developing the 6th version of my sample machine, so samples for the UFOs should become more automated the next couple months while I work out the bugs and add more features to it. This will allow me to be able to load up a spool and walk away instead of sitting in front of the machine for 60 hours a month lol. Plus hopefully will speed up the process overall which will allow me to get UFOs out faster.

Also, for those who don't know as I've been getting a lot of questions about it lately... you can earn $5 off your subscription each month by referring new customers. They'll get $5 off an order of $35 or more (like a 1 Month UFO!) and you'll get a $5 credit which can add up to FREE UFO's. Simply visit https://www.alien3d.us/invite/ to see your code!

Mark Rhodes - Inverse Kinematic Paint Mixer

The parts included in the UFO were slightly different than the parts Mark used/designed for, so Fernando modified the stand to fit the UFO parts. Be sure to download that as well.

While developed as a paint mixer, I thought that this awesome device could be used for mixing up just about anything! (That'll fit of course lol). And no microcontroller needed! Developed by Mark Rhodes

UFO Includes:

  • 12v power supply
  • Power Connector
  • Toggle Switch
  • 12v DC Motor
  • Nuts & Bolts
