Text paint roll by Samuel Bernier by LPFP Feb 5, 2013

Featured Thing!


Printed Paint roll to customize your tapestry. This hacking project was made in collaboration with ADEO a group that owns many tool brands such as Dexter. We brainstormed as a team and came up with many funny ideas to hack products selected among a thick catalogue.

I got to work on printed accessories for standard 120mm paint rolls.

<p>I did a customizable version here:<br>http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:341577&lt;br&gt;Have fun! And thanks again to LPFP for sharing this cool idea!</p>

Customizable Paint Roller

<p>Nice design!, Can you put up your SolidWorks file?</p>

<p>I'd say for something like this to be featured, it should at least have some customization.</p>

<p>wanted to make on to put text on a cake but its beyond me how to edit the text, is there a way to do it with openscad ? solid works is out of my reach</p>

<p>I'm intrigued as to how well this picks up and deposits the ink. Could it be improved by a thin coat of rubber? (plastidip etc?)</p>

LPFP - in reply to tangmu

<p>It works ok, but nothing like a silicone etch. I'll try to find some silicone paint to see if it can hold the ink better. One thing : it makes awesome patterns for pottery!</p>

<p>This would be an excelent candidate to be made into a customizer</p>

<p>Ok, Open Scad is really not intuitive for someone who isn't familiar to programing. Is there any other way to generate an .scad for the Makerbot Customizer? Thanks.</p>

<p>Love this design, great idea. I will make a openSCAD file this weekend...if someone else does not do it first. I will be sure to post as a remix to this great thing you've made. </p>

<p>Awesome, thanks for stepping up Mark! Also, great idea from the folks at LPFP.</p>

<p>I really want to, but I really don't understand how OpenScad works. And I tried! Can I export the parametric codes from SolidWorks?</p>
