    3D Printing and Vaping!

    Hi All,
    Not sure where to post this, I'm into 3d printing a tonne of stuff and went in search of vape accessories on Thingiverse - a place where you design something and share it free under creative commons licence which I think means you can make and share but not profit from or something.
    Anywho, Ive found a few files and have already started printing things, heres a few Ive made, if anyone has a 3D printer and unaware Ill happy to provide links once a mod lets me know that's ok!
    Double 18650 Battery Case

    Single 18650 Carry case with either keyring kinda top lid or plain the middle piece I hadn't pulled off the raft yet (raft is what holds it onto the printing platen you remove it once printed)

    Tank holder this one has a Protank 4 again I hadn't removed the rafting

    Have a heap more to show if anyones interested?

    It's only a few more steps from some of those to making your own mech mods, and a bit more again to making regulated mods. You can get most of the bits you need from slowtech ;-)

    He he he ... I've just got my 3D printer up and running ready to do some "stuff"
    Calibration was the worse part, having conflicting instructions didn't help but it's nutted out now

    It's plastic called "filament", on a spool. The type of plastic depends on the capabilities of the 3D printer, but PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a common thermoplastic for home 3D printers. Commercial units can have access to a whole range of other plastics including metal impregnated ones that can produce very hard parts.

    It's possible to finish the items you make by sanding and shaping, then apply coats of paint or lacquer etc. Yes XX would go nuts LOL

    I saw a pic of Lauries and he had a great battery holder - it was upright and you feed the batts in from the top and took them out from the bottom. I have been trying to find one ever since.
    I would buy one if you can make it
