Thank You to this month’s sponsors, contributors, and companies who didn’t try to shoot our UFO’s out of the sky for using their product in this month’s box.
The July 2019 UFO Mystery 3D Printing Box has landed! This month marks a special month for Alien3D, as it was a year ago that the first UFO, the July 2018 box, was sent out. With only 8 subscribers that first month... a year later, over 2000 UFO's have been shipped out.
I know that the UFO isn't the most popular 3D Printing Mystery Box out there, we haven't been around all that long. But I do still believe that it's the best. Every month I get comments submitted to me about how the projects are enjoyed not just by you, but your kids, your family members, your husbands and wives. It's an amazing feeling every month to see how much this little box brings such joy to you all.
Not every month is the greatest, we sure as heck know that not every month is on time (working on it), but I do put my heart and soul into this box... and while Momma Alien3D does come over and help a little here and there with folding the boxes, taping and putting on the shipping labels... the rest of the company is just me as far as handling the orders, making the samples, handling the logistics, etc. On top of my day job.
There are however people in the community that do help me with box designs, project ideas, filament suggestions, accessory suggestions, and some months they even create the projects themselves... so I would like to give a special thanks to the following people who for months have put up with me and helped me out lol...
- Bryan Vines
- Matt Weber
And others who have helped and directly contributed in the past year:
- Bill Devine
- Robby Maq
- Rebecca Buckhoff
- Dan the 3D Printing Dad
And I am sure I am forgetting some.
To all of the Amazing companies that have worked with me over the last year, thank you all so much. Some of you have become great friends and it's awesome to be able to call you up, or DM you or email you and just chat about ideas.
To all of my subscribers, whether you've been here from the beginning, no longer subscribe, or are current subscribers... I absolutely cannot thank you enough, because without you I would not be still doing this one year later. I am humbled every month that you put your faith into me and my product and ideas. Please, always feel free to reach out to me via email or Twitter. I'll even call you up if you'd like to discuss ideas, hear your stories, or even accept a butt chewing if I've done something wrong.
Thank you all so very much. Here's to another year!
July 2019 Mothership Prizes
This month the Mothership announcements will be a little different... there were 13 of them after all, and embedding 13 potential tweets would make this page quite lengthy lol...
Additionally, I have received some feedback from some subscribers about how some months the winners do not post that they've won and have suggested I post who won... so I'm going to try that, though just first name and last initial, and if I know their twitter account I'll link out to them.
Note: At the time of shipping this month's UFO's, the 3D Printing Pens weren't available yet. They are a brand new product from ZylTech and will be coming in at the end of July.
Congrats to Devynn R. for receiving the July 2019 Filaments Only Scout Ship Box!
The Filaments Only Scout Ship Box is given to one random Filaments Only subscriber and receives a full UFO box with the projects and accessory for that month!

I know I know, I put PROBED Green PETG in last month's box, but I had a choice to make... Wait on a filament that was coming late, or dip into my stash lol. I wanted to get the UFO's out instead of being late again... Aaannd... well it's Alienversary!
Alien3D BuildTak Printing Surface
BuildTak is another company that has supported the UFO's from the very first box, and so for the Alienversary I thought it would be great to give an Alien3D branded BuildTak sheet.
I know a lot of you have larger beds, or even circular beds, maybe smaller beds? However, I couldn't order everyone's specific bed size as there is a 50 min order per custom designed sizes... so I hope that the size I included in the UFO is at least enough for you to be able to try out the surface. They also work GREAT for placing on one side of a flex plate!
- 30 Bright 5mm LEDs
- 30 Resistors
- 2m of wires
- Pre-programmed circuit board
- 9v Battery Clip
UFO's are AMAZING, you have to admit it! And I've been getting a lot of feedback for more complicated electronic projects.
The Thingiverse project for this you will find a little different as it uses an arduino and requires programming. I worked with a local electronics store to design a circuit board to do all the heavy lifting and is pre-programmed. All of the soldering though is still a must lol.
Also... I forgot switches to turn it on and off >.<... It can however be updated should you choose to use a USB power supply, switches to turn it on and off (should be a couple from previous UFO projects)
As I write this, I don't have the tutorial done yet, but I'm working on it and it should be up soon.
The circuit board has holes for 5 sets of wiring, however it is programmed for only the first 4.
The LED lights are a bright green, and there is one thing to note. Generally LED's have a short and long wire to determine the polarity, short being negative long being positive. These LEDs for some reason don't have that. If you look in to the LED head, you should be able to determine which is the negative because it has a large flag like looking end in the LED where the positive is thin. What I suggest is to look, find the negative and then clip the wire a little bit to more easily determine between them when doing the wiring.
There are 2 ways to setup the tractor beam lights, you can either do them "always on" via diagram 2 in the downloaded schematic, or you can set them up so 3 strands will have 8 lights connected, and 1 strand will have 6. The extra 6 on the 3 strands can be used for the tractor beam for them to flash as well.
The circuit board is programmed to do 1 slow rotation and 1 fast rotation and repeat.

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!
