June 2022 UFO

UFO Changes¬† 48th Month! I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for 4 years already, time flies! Definitely hasn’t been the smoothest run so far, but dang what an accomplishment! Thank you all so much to new and long time subscribers, especially those who have stuck by me though the tough times. My goal this year is to get a …

UFO Changes

Hey everyone! Over the last 47 months the UFO’s have had 27 projects based on micro controllers, whether arduino nanos, or D1 Wifi modules, etc… and usually they’re the more popular projects and most of them are also my favorites. Unfortunately, the prices of micro controllers has continued to rise the last 2 years, and they’re now taking up the …

UFO Filament Companies

Coming up on 4 years of UFO’s, 76 different filament companies have been included in the UFO’s, so I wanted to compile a list and hopefully keep it updated every few months if/when new companies are added. While 76 companies were used, some are currently no longer around so they’re listed but links to their sites aren’t included. 3D Filament …

May 2022 UFO

UFO Changes¬† While the UFO will arrive after the 4th, who doesn’t like Lightsabers at any time of the month/year? lol. I am currently working on theming out my bedroom in Star Wars stuff, and am planning on making a couple of these to hang on my wall for lighting, and I think Fernando did a great job with the …

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 …

Digital Hourglass

Past November boxes have had what I called “Turkey projects” they were mostly useless projects meant to be funny. This year I wanted to do something for real, and I hope you like it! Arduino Nano 2 8*8 Led Matrix with MAX7219 ADXL345 Accelerometer Toggle switch Wires Check out Fernando and please thank him for taking on UFO project development …

Ultrasonic Motion Tracker

I thought it’d be cool to have a device that tracks when you’re moving while recording on a phone for a hands-free following… Unfortunately the specs for the Ultrasonic sensors aren’t correct lol. They’re supposed to be able to detect up to 4 meters, but as you may have seen in Fernando’s video, they require some up close movement. Even …

Motion Activated MP3 Player

I had an idea for this while looking up projects and I asked Fernando if he could come up with something… and boy did he! I love how this turned out. Hopefully it’s something you can use for years to come on Halloween! Components included: 1 x Arduino Nano with power cord 1 x SD Card MP3 Player Module 1 …

Raspberry Pico Mini Arcade by Print-n-Play

A few months ago Raspberry launched the Pico – kinda like an Arduino Nano – and shortly after, James from Print-N-Play showed it off by making a mini game with it. So I thought it would be cool to use it as a UFO project! The Pico I also thought would be a chance to learn something new since a …

March UFO Update

Heya Probees, I wanted to send out a quick email as I am about to head back to the hospital. As those who follow on Twitter or Facebook may know, last week I went to the Dentist and by 1 AM Saturday morning I was in so much pain and my face was swelling up that I ended up going …
