Nested Birdhouse by Gyrobot Jul 11, 2013

Challenge Winner



Prints fully assembled in "flat packed" mode (what..the..?) See : youtu.be/bl2VTvjv_UA
and instagram.com/p/cK80C-ha0d/# (thanks to nickythegreek)

Contains a perch, rain roof, ventilation, drainage, integrated hinges and is cleanable.

The hole is high enough so the chicks cannot fall out, yet they can climb up the sloped walls when ready to fly the nest.

No, they don't have anything exclusive, yet!!

Ah ok then I don't have to register there to get this model :)

Well done for the spot, it is the same design, I was testing their submission process so I chose this model as my first upload.

Print without support, it's all in the geometry.

It prints fully assembled in "flat packed" mode, just open and screw to tree/board.

I have included a PARTITION.stl so you can print two birdhouses off, and attach them back to back, to make a hanging condo.

A really small footprint for a large birdhouse. If you want to push the boundaries of unattended print time then I have included an stl where 3 of these are nested (sorry) together. The total build cube required for a nest of 3 is only = 176mm x 176mm x 107mm.

##My Print Settings :
- layer_height = 0.2
- perimeters = 2
- top_solid_layers = 2
- bottom_solid_layers = 2
- fill_density = 0.25
- nozzle_diameter = 0.35
- filament_diameter = 1.75

Brilliant! Agree that this should have taken 1st, from both a design and manufacturing standpoint..

Fantastic 'simple' design. Thanks.

this should have been the winner :)
i find the remade craftmanshouse quite boring..

Thank, you, have you printed one off, if so I would love to see it? I think that's when it's inventiveness strikes home, after you see it unfold before your eyes.

Very Nice!

Love the render of it on a build platform. Doesn't do much to convince me this is printable. Might be, looks good, but not sure.

This prints flawlessly. Unbelievable almost. Check out the pix from me, MAKERFAM in the right column. As far as hobbyist 3D printing goes, this is a seminal design and execution.

Hi, thank you for your comment, watch this space, it's nearly finished printing at this moment with no problems so far. I wanted to upload before anyone else beat me too this type of concept. However, everybody's printer is different so there are no guarantees.

So Cool. You got my vote for best birdhouse for sure!

MAKERFAM on Jul 29, 2013 said:

You were robbed. This is by far the best.
