Spring Pins & Snake Pins by PrettySmallThings Feb 17, 2012

Featured Thing!

Description

Flexible pin connector segments to work with tbuser's Toy Robot Toolkit. I created these in my marionette quest, and while useless for my marionette, they might be useful in a myriad of other applications.

Neither of these designs is a direct derivative of Zomboe's, Landru's or Emmett's work - but they are certainly inspired - so I'm spreading the derivative love all around.

If you're working with solid modeling, you'll find a rebuilt, solid version of tbuser's basic pin & hole negative buried in the CAD file.

I saw you're interested in elastic springy-thingies... I don't have a 3D printer (yet) but I thought of making breathable backpack straps - plushyness and bendability through intricate structure. I could use sponge but the idea is to minimize contact area and let the air breeze through as much as possible.

I'm planning on making a messenger bag entirely out of recycled stuff like billboard PVC, and 3D printed bits and such.

Oh gawd you are having entirely too much fun with these. (Just saw the dalek video)

Oh god, I am going to have entirely too much fun with these. :)
