Here is a simple 3D model for standing a shampoo, conditioner, detergent, or liquid soap bottle upside down. The diameter of the hole for the bottle cap is 31.5 mm. If you need a stand for a different diameter, let me know, and I’ll generate it, or you can download the Fusion 360 or STEP file and modify it yourself. I printed mine in white PETG with 15% infill.

Raspberry Pi Camera Mount for Prusa MK3/S/+ MK2/S
I have been using the Articulating Pi Cam mount with my Prusa MK3S. The joints between the links were coming lose all the time, and the 3D-printed screws were breaking when I was trying to tighten them. I designed my own arm for the mount, which:
- Uses metal M3 fasteners, which can be tightened properly so that they would not come lose,
- Is more than twice lighter than the articulating arm,
- Has a slightly bigger ball for the ball joint, to make that joint a little bit tighter,
- Is compatible with the camera head from the articulating arm, so if you are already using the articulating arm, you can reuse the camera case from it.
3D Printed Flying Spaghetti Monster Tree Topper
I designed and printed a large New Year tree toper of Flying Spaghetti Monster emblem. This post is to share the devine noodly goodness (or is it godness) with the world. My 3D printer can print up to 25 cm by 21 cm, so this model is split in three parts to be glued together.
3D Printed Fence for Kreg Jig Mini
When looking for a pocket hole jig, I had difficulty choosing between the various versions Kreg offers. On the one hand, I wanted the Mini because it is the smallest jig that can get into tight places, and is very cheap. On the other hand, I wanted the jig to have a nice fence for easy, repeatable pocket holes. I decided to design my own fence system for the Kreg Jig Mini, which, I believe, is more flexible than the fence that comes with the Kreg Jig 320. The fence I designed allows for a greater range of adjustability and features alignment windows for precise positioning of the jig on a drawn pencil line.
Filament Spool Weighing Jig for Small Scales
Did you ever try to weigh a spool of filament on a small kitchen scale? If you lay it flat, you can’t see the scale’s display. If you try to stand it up, it rolls off the scale. This simple jig is designed to solve that problem. With it you can stand the spool of filament up on your small scale and easily read the scale.
Weighted Universal Thread Stand for Cones and Cross Wound Spools
I designed a thread stand to be used with thread cones and cross-wound thread spools (for sewing machines that don’t have horizontal spool pins). To make the stand a bit more substantial, the base can be filled with something heavy, like sand, lead shot, or bearing balls. The conical spool cap has two diameters: wider for bigger spools, and narrower for smaller ones. To make it you need a 3D printer, some glue, and 12-gauge steel wire for the center pin and the arm.
Ultimate 3D Printed Table Saw Throat Insert With Dovetailed Zero Clearance Strips
I designed an all-in 3D printed table saw throat insert. It features changeable dovetailed zero clearance strips that are easy to make from 1/4″ birch plywood. The insert allows full range of movement of blade and splitter (height and tilt angle). It has leveling feet for perfect alignment with the table surface, a safety tab, and fine fit adjustment screws. It can be printed on most common household 3D printers. While it is tailored for my particular table saw, I’m hoping that the design can be tweaked to fit other left tilting saws.
Snap Lid for Cascade Box
I designed a snap lid to be used with the box from the Cascade Platinum dishwasher tabs. The original lid that comes with the box is very flimsy and has a weird split design, which makes it hard to reuse. The 3.8 L box, on the contrary, is very sturdy, and I wanted to be able to reuse it for storage. This 3D printed lid is designed to fit it snugly and features snap tabs that grab the snap collar on the box.
Lathe Chuck Wall Mount
I designed a simple 3D-printed mount that allows me to store my wood lathe chucks on the wall or any other vertical surface. I mounted mine on the wall of my wooden lathe stand. The mount is designed for 1″ 8TPI thread, but if you like the idea, it should be very easy to design the same mount for other spindle sizes.
