Peng Birdhouse

Peng Birdhouse by Robalos Jul 1, 2013

Description

This penguin inspired birdhouse is designed to be the ideal house for most seasonal birds. The solid portion of the structure allows rain water to flow from the top and off the back keeping the moister away from the openings. This section also provides shade from harsh sun. The ventilated section in the front not only provides a view of the outside but allows for air flow giving birds a comfortable living condition. They "eyes of the penguin", aka holes at the top, provide a method for suspending the Ping House.

i tried printing it... i ended up with a very time consuming and interesting effect at the bottom layers, think '3d printed lace' without any closed edges whatsoever. so i tried to make it 3d rpinter friendly with a variety of tools and gave up. maybe ok with an SLS process, but not on my rep2. beautiful object though.

Very cool, but it would be almost impossible to print with an extruder based printer.
