When we first got our 3D printer, I went to thingiverse looking for items I thought would sell. I searched birdhouses, and right away found one, I knew I wanted to print out. I took to the printer and started printed, well, the design was a mess and my birdhouse ended up tumbling over.
I was determined to get a birdhouse, so my husband started playing with the design, and we finally got it to work! Yesterday, we printed our first tin can birdhouse. Take a look…
After we got it all put together we had to go put it in the tree!
How awesome is that!
We didn’t have the right can, so I ended up going to the store with the back end of the birdhouse, I was checking all the cans to see which one would fit. I ended up picking up 4 cans of peaches. We had a small problem getting the back on to the can, so we increased the size of the back, perfect fit. I know the birds who make this their home will love it.
This build took 4.5 hours to complete in total, and we have since made purple, orange, and another blue one for our upcoming show. Tomorrow we will be testing bird feeders which will be made out of soda bottles.
