Short Term Projects

Raspberry Pi Cover
This page is designed to highlight the short term posts that have featured on this site.  They would be suitable for printing if you have limited time.   

For the purpose of keeping it simple the short term projects will be those of under five hours for the entire print.  All these projects have featured on this site in more depth and can be accessed by clicking on the hyperlink.

For the purpose of simplicity the times here reflect a 'fast' print setting unless otherwise specified in the description.  The initial projects were created as early as 2014 and are presented here in reverse order:

Update - as of May 2017 we made the decision to run all prints with a 8mm nozzle, instead of a 4mm nozzle that we had been previously using as the default print.  As a consequence all prints prior to May 2017 will take roughly half the stated time.
