Bonus Items


This tool has been developed specifically for the FFF 3D printing world. It features a durable plastic handle with non-slip, ergonomic rubber grip. The blade is composed of rigid stainless steel with a thin front edge that was designed to be BuildTak safe while still allowing for easy seperation of your 3D prints.

Activity / Project

This month’s bonus project is a Motorized Cycle loosely based on the bikes from Tron. I got inspired by a video I saw on YouTube of a motorized “Drift Motorcycle”. Included in the UFO you should have a 24000 RPM motor, 9v battery connector and a push button power switch. These go along with a 3D Printed project that you can find at the link below. I hope you have fun with this project, and look forward to your shares on twitter with the tag #TheUFOInvasionIsHere!

View Youtube Video that inspired this month’s project

• 9v Battery Connector
• 24000 RPM Motor
• Push button toggle on/off switch

Further note: I was unable to build a final version before the boxes went out. The original motors I had purchased were too weak so I had to order stronger ones which arrived the day I was packing the boxes so they went from the box they arrived in straight into the UFO’s. The new motors may be too weak as well and I just may have failed you all this month. Theoretically, the bike should work. If not, I will continue to work on it and also challenge you to come up with something to use with the items.
