Upcycling a tin can to turn it into a bird house using 3D printed clipped lids.
These models were made a while back for project RE_, but now they are FREEEEE!
Come and vote for me on Instructables Make it real challenge! http://www.instructables.com/id/Project-RE-by-Samuel-Bernier/
Open a used 4 inch diameter tin can on both sides. Use a normal can opener, the ones that leave the lip intact.
Print both front and back part. Remove support.
Nail or screw the back part unto a tree or a wall about 1 to 3 meters above ground to attract eastern bluebirds.
More models for different type of birds will come.
I suggest to use ABS with a FDM machine to have a good clip!
