November 2023 UFO

Be sure to bookmark for quick access to UFO reveal posts. is a digital catalog of filament from around the globe, curated with the purpose of helping people find the perfect colors for their project. We print and photograph every filament under the same conditions, allowing users to compare different colors directly. We also measure the color and report this as a hex color, and use that to calculate complementary colors, similar filaments, and even similar colors in other materials to help users perfectly plan their projects. We’re a hobby project and always growing through filament donations and partnerships, so keep checking back to find your favorite filaments!

Filament Samples

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)

Those looking for a sample spooler, MadMonkey designed this one and it's been my favorite so far

DSK has also made a sample spool specifically to fit the samples from the new machine:


25 in 1 Mini Driver Set with Case

I've been in the need lately of some small screw drivers and I kept losing the tiny ones I had. I know I've done a mini driver previously, but this one comes with a lot more heads =P

Christmas Ornament Scenes

I've been catching some heat from some of y'all lately because projects recently have been pretty heavy with soldering, so I thought I'd do a couple months of easy to do and fun projects!

I saw BV3D do a video on Halloween Tea Light Scenes, so I tracked down the designer and saw that they also had Christmas themed ones. I wanted to do something a little different though, so I removed the stand, added a hole in the back, removed the tea light hole, added a part to hang it, and turned it into an Ornament that can be hung!

UFOs came with 5 x 8 in 1 Sticky Coasters to make 5 ornaments. Be sure to remove the battery slip so the devices will function, then you can swap between the 7 solid colors or a flashing cycle by pressing the button to turn it on and off. Each time you turn it on it switches to the next mode.

Peel the 3M sticky cover and stick it to the back of the ornament case with the batteries and LEDs facing inside the ornament.

Alien3D remix link contains the case only, I like for people to get the other parts from the original designer so that they can get likes and download credits, so the original design is also linked to below.

Programming the ESP32-WROOM Boards:

There are 2 ways you can program the board.

Arduino Web Editor:

One way is to use the Arduino web editor. You can create a project in the online editor and copy the code into it. Just follow the websites directions on getting the needed plug in installed. The board you would select is the esp32 dev module

Locally on PC:

First you will need the Arduino IDE installed on your computer. Which you can install from . If you are using windows 11 I would suggest to download and install the legacy IDE version as new one gets some access denied errors.

Once the IDE is up and running you will need to install the esp32 board.

First thing you will need is to install the Espressif esp32 board library. You can do so by following the tutorial on the website below: [Note for our board select the esp32 dev board]

After the board is installed you can open up the .ino file for the project.

You can the select the board Esp32 Dev Module and the correct port and click upload.

This should compile the code and send it to the board for you!
