Food Safe Coating for Resin Prints?

by ElzbethE

This one sounds pretty simple. I'd like to print myself and a friend some cups to drink from using my Anycubic Photon. Issue is the resin is toxic, so I need a coating that will allow it to be safe to drink from. All I can seem to find is stuff that's either not safe for food or is meant for wood, and I'm getting irritated. Thank you for your help.

After I have an idea where do I start to build a model?

by rpdesjardins

I have an idea! I would like to create a phone holder that attaches to my forearm and allows me to turn the phone 90% but can lock into that position. Think of it as my phone as a wrist watch that is horizontal but if I want I could rotate it to look at it vertically.

I don't care if someone attempts designing something with this idea. My question is what software would I need to start building a design?

Zip Toggle Replacement V2.0

by ByteSlinger

Last month I released V2.0 for my zip toggle replacement, the original of which I uploaded 6 years ago.

After many comments asking where the upload had gone, I thought I'd deleted it but I haven't. It still shows up for me but if I view my profile when logged out of Thingiverse, or even go directly to the URL that works fine for me, it just comes up with a 404.

However, fear not, I've also uploaded it to my new account which I'm now focussing more on over at Printables, here's the file here:https://www.printables.com/model/153129-zip-toggle-v2


UPDATE: So, after it being down for days, and with me doing absolutely nothing, all of a sudden, the design page on Thingiverse has just made itself public again, all by itself. This site has more bugs than an entomologists lab! Printables is far better! If you aren't already on there, I recommend setting up an account there at https://www.printables.com/. They even have a fancy import feature so you can automatically import all your items from Thingiverse (providing they are visible to the public)

Help with the master thesis - Search for interview partners

by Gamzec

Hello dear community,

I am a student at the Technical University of Darmstadt and in need of your help for my master’s thesis. I am examining the topic of explorative and exploitative behavior in online communities and want to understand your actions on Thingiverse and how they are influenced by your personality traits.

Therefore, I am currently looking for interview partners who are willing to tell me about their experiences on Thingiverse in a 30 to 40-minute interview.

Between the volunteers (approximately 10 participants) a 50€ Amazon voucher will be given away as a small thank you. If you are interested, I can also provide the results of my thesis to you. The interview is possible in English and in German. Your data will of course be treated confidentially and will only be used in connection with this thesis.

If I caught you interest, please sign up with your e-mail address to the following doodle list at your preferred time. Afterwards I will send you a invitation to the Zoom call. It is first come, first serve.

Many thanks in advance!
