Pole/Mast Mount for Bobcat Miner 300 Stock Antenna

Bobcat Miner 300 hotspot comes with a fairly good stock antenna. Unfortunately, the antenna has a flat base that is meant for placing the antenna on a horizontal surface, such as a window sill. I wanted a more permanent way of mounting the stock antenna, so I designed this mount. With it, the stock antenna can be mounted on any round or square pole, mast, or rod..


NVME drive support bracket for Dell Laptops (replaces KYMC9)

When I wanted to add a second M.2 NVME drive to my Dell Inspiron 5502, I discovered that the laptop did not come with required hardware. I needed to buy Dell part KYMC9 to install the drive. But what are 3D printers for? After a little tinkering in Fusion 360, I designed and printed my own version of the bracket, and now I’m sharing the design with the world. From my understanding, this bracket is needed for Inspiron, Latitude, and Vostro laptops from the 5500, 5400, 4500, 3400, and 3500 series, but I only tested it with my 5502. If this bracket works for you, please leave a comment to let other people know.


String Action Gauge / Ruler for Guitar or Ukulele

I designed a 3D printable gauge/ruler that can be used to measure the string action on a guitar or ukulele. It features measurements in both millimeters and fractions of an inch. It can be optionally printed in two colours (does not require a multi-colour capable printer). Or print in single colour and use a sharpie to fill the depressions.


Containers for Upcycled Lids from Milk or Juice Cartons

I designed a variety of 3D printed containers to be used with the plastic lids that can be upcycled from milk or juice cartons. The containers are designed to be easy to print and to use as little plastic as possible.

When I saw these milk cap containers on Thingiverse, I thought that the idea was great. I later found another design. Unfortunately, the caps from the cartons in my household did not fit either of those two designs, and I ended up designing my own. I’m not sure why my caps did not fit, but it’s likely because the two designs above are from Europe, and I live in Canada. If you are in North America, then, likely, you would want my design.


Spare Dish for Cat Mate Feeder

At some point, my cat figured out that she can wake me up in the morning to get food quicker. Every day thereafter, I had to get up at 6AM to feed her. I bought the Cat Mate C300 automatic feeder to address this problem, and it worked really well. Now my cat gets her food at 6AM and does not bother me about it. The only issue with the feeder is that there is no way to buy a second bowl for it. This is a problem, because I prefer to run my dishwasher overnight, and the only bowl is in the cat feeder at that time, so I can not throw it into the dishwasher.

Since there was no way to buy a spare dish/bowl for the feeder, I designed and 3D printed one. It works great, and I hope that it can be useful for somebody else, too.


Colour Collar Marker Rings for Smartwater Bottles

Smartwater bottles are very popular among hikers. I’ve designed these simple collar rings that snap around the neck of the bottle, making the bottles easy to mark.

The ring is very easy to print. I used PLA and PETG, and they work equally well.

Custom Mount for D’Addario Planet Waves Clip Free Guitar Tuner

Custom Mount for D'Addario Planet Waves Clip Free PW-CT-21 Guitar Tuner installed with a custom mount in use

I could not mount the D’Addario Planet Waves clip free guitar tuner (model PW-CT-21) onto the headstock of my travel guitar. The headstock of the guitar is so small that there is no way to attach it so that it would not interfere with the left hand. I designed and 3D printed this custom mount for the tuner to solve that issue. The mount places the tuner in between two tuning machines, raising the tuner just above the machines. The mount attaches with the two long wood screws supplied with the tuner.

I am sharing this design in the hopes that it may be useful to someone else. It is fully parametric, and, most likely, you only need to change one parameter – btwn_mounting_holes_oc, which is the distance between the two tuning machines mount holes, on center, measured as accurately as possible. You may also want to increase the height parameter if the mount is not tall enough, and the tuner does not clear the tuning machines.
