Salute to our Veterans and all who have served or are serving, As an Army veteran myself, I thank all of you!
The colors of the filament samples this month are for the most part USA/Military themed, but for those reading this on stream or for unboxing videos before looking at the contents, I won’t spoil it lol.
I ALMOST went with another bogus Turkey themed project this month lol, but there’s actually a real project this year. I’ll give just a little hint - Corn Maze!!!!
As always, this time of year with the holidays can be rough for some. To top it off the months of isolation some of us who aren’t normally isolated already, may have even more of a rough time of it. I encourage anyone who may be feeling down, to please reach out to friends, family members, the community, or even me. Feel free to DM me on Twitter, email me, or reach out to the following hotline: 800-273-8255
Thanksgiving will have already passed before the next UFO arrives, so I do wish you all an amazing turkey day!
Finally, I want to thank everyone who donated to the 24 hour charity stream this past weekend. We raised over $3000 for Children’s Miracle Network!!! You’re all amazing! If you didn’t hear about it and would like to donate, please see me on social media =) Love you all!
Congrats to Adam L.
for winning the November 2020 Mothership Box!

Month 4 of 12
On the ends of each UFO for 12 months you'll find a 1/12th piece of a puzzle. At the end of the 12 months they can be combined for a larger image.
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)
This month has been in the plans for a while. Rich from GreenGate3D really wanted to do a salute to our Veterans for Veteran's Day. I had already used American Blue, but I still hope that the colors included this month are sufficient =)

SD Card + Adapter + Stick!
With our 3D Printers, there's no telling what kind of memory it uses... is it a Normal CD, Micro SD, USB device thingamabob? Does your PC/Mac even HAVE a card reader? Well, here are options! And we can never have enough memory!
So this month you get a 32 GB MicroSD, with an Adapter to plug it in to and make it a standard SD, and a USB stick adapter to plug it in to as well.
Now stop slacking and get to printing!
It has been brought to my attention that the Bluetooth modules I sent out in the UFOs were Bluetooth interface boards and did not include the actual Bluetooth chips on them *sighs*
I've come up with a solution, but the Nano will need to be pluggin in to your PC at all times during playing with it.
BlueTooth Controlled Ball Maze
Parts included in UFO:
- Arduino Nano w/ Power Cord
- 2 x 1/4 Ball Bearings
- 2 x SG90 Motors
- 9v Battery Clip
- Power Switch
Download the files from thingiverse and follow the instructions on how to assemble it and make the maze from the instructable below. But do not follow the instructions for connecting the Bluetooth Module, or download the arduino files. Read below for updated instructions.
- Cut the wires on the 2 servo motors.
- Cut 4 wires off the included set of wires to about 6 inches or so, leaving the female ends on one end. Strip a length of bare wire from all of the wires.
- Twist the Brown wires from the servos + 1 of the free wires together and either, tape solder or shrink wrap the wires to protect them. Plug the female end into the GND on the Arduino
- Twitst the Red wires from the servos + 1 of the free wires together and secure. Plug the female end into the 5V on the Arduino
- Twist the Orange from 1 of the servos to a free wire, secure it, and plug the female end into D6
- Twist the Orange from the remaining servo to a free wire, secure it, and plug the female end into D7
- Connect the arduino to your computer via the USB cable included.
- Open the maze_control.ino file, and upload it to the Arduino Nano, close Arduino.
- Open the gui.pde file in the Processing Program.
- In Processing, Go to Sketch > Import Library > Add Library and search for ControlP5 and install it.
- At the top of the Processing app, with the gui.pde file open, you should see a Play and Stop button. Press the Play button.
- A GUI will pop up, it's very basic that I created with Up, Down, Left, Right buttons. Each button should now move your Maze motors.
Feel free to modify the code for the Arduino or the Process GUI. I thought maybe it'd be possible to move the Servos just by moving the mouse as well... can you make it happen?

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!
