Repair of a thermometer with a 3D printer
This thermometer hung outside the window for several years, due to temperature changes the plastic mount literally crumbled into small pieces in hands. Repairing a thermometer with a 3D printer cost ten minutes of modeling and a few grams of plastic.
He printed new parts on a 3D printer made of ABS plastic, as time will show how it behaves in the cold. Until I hung the thermometer back, I can’t open the window, there is still a New Year's garland on the address LEDs .

I also replaced the graduated scale with humidity, drew and printed a new one on the printer. The picture for printing is in the archive with the project files.
For my daughter, I printed a little Wally made of plastic, she is crazy about this toy, especially since dad made a toy.
Today, instead of round guides, the printer received square, using a conventional aluminum profile tube with a cross section of 20 * 20 mm. Bearings roll along the pipe 623zz. All plastic parts were printed on the same printer before it was altered.
I decided to try how my homemade 3D printer will cope with small models, for this I chose mini-toys and printed them.
This article is about how I collect my robot vacuum cleaner. There are a lot of photos and videos for those who also have such an idea.
I present to your attention a homemade 3d printer. Assembled from plywood, aluminum, plastic and Arduino. This printer is unique in that its kinematics is peeped from Ultimaker, but done with quality modifications.
