I hope everyone had a good Valentine’s Day! While those of us who are single may not have had any hot dates, it’s always a good time to get discounted Chocolate the day after lol. This month’s project was suggested by @MattStultz, so thank you! I think it’s pretty cool! I’ve used glitter in mine and it’s working pretty well! Be sure to check out the reveal page link above as there’s a couple notes about the build =)
The accessory this month “may” be useful - I thought it was a good “not designed for 3D Printing but may work” kind of tool. You’ll need to get your own socket if you weren’t a subscriber when the socket sets went out =D
March UFO’s “should” go out closer to being on time. I’m working with a new box company that is a smaller company that so far I think has cared more about my service than the big box company I was using before. We shall see =D Let’s hope the weather gets better though, as one of my suppliers is in a part where delivery and pickup has been shut down due to snow and well... and another supplier is currently going through Chinese New Year >.<
One last thing... no stickers this month as some were being sent, but didn’t arrive before today so I’ll put them in next month’s UFO.
Anywhooooo... Thank you all for sticking it out with me, and STAY WARM! (Or move to Florida where it’s in the 80’s =D)
Congrats to Bryan V.
for winning the February 2021 Mothership Box!

Looking forward to your guesses =) #UFOPUZZLE
All filament samples are at least 20 meters in length (actually more, I increased the length to eat up the extra filament being left behind on the rolls)

When I came across this, I thought "here's a cool tool that, while not necessarily designed for 3D Printing, could be used for a few things in 3D Printing. One of which is a cheap alternative to a nozzle changer. Some other tools work a little better, such as the Z-Catch which will hold your block in place as you change the nozzle, or the Torque Wrench tool to make sure you're not over tightening your nozzle... but this, this is a good addition to the list!
Magnetic Sand Clock
Parts included in UFO:
- High Torque Clock Component
- 2 x 15mm Magnets
- 150mm x 150mm Acrylic
- 2 x 1/4" ball bearings
While the base and top are pretty long prints, and you'll have to provide your own sand (I used glitter =P) I think this is a really neat project.
My only note for the construction... the shaft of the clock I used seems to be a tiny bit shorter than the one used by Neil, so for the longer hand arm, I printed it at 90% on the Z axis and everything fit perfectly for me.

I 'm trying out a new tripod setup this month to get a smoother camera and free up both hands. I hope to improve the angle as I go along but it gives me the ability to show more projects. My videos are quick one shot videos with no editing or cuts other then length cuts so If I fail you see it LOL. Please overlook the noises in the background due to road noise and printer noise, I am just a average joe working in a garage doing this for fun and to share knowledge like the rest of us and not in a studio.
Thanks for watching!
