Riding the Thingiverse way back machine

I have been intersted in RepRap for 2 years now, and honestly I had completely forgot about some of the older designs in Thingiverse, it’s really a gold mine of inspiration to look at the old designs, some of which are just begging for new life.

[Go to the last page of Thingiverse]

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:457Who knew Makerbot Batch 1 designs where uploaded 1 year ago 2 weeks ago?

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:16Bre’s sun glasses REALLY need to be printable! (Have fun comparing Bre’s hair color in the pics and his Thingiverse profile)

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:92 Dino Girls Rawr-saur really wants to be a printable STL

Who knew the Plastruder was inspired by a blog post by a guy with no intention of building it?

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:289 Or that the 1st prototype had a rubber band on the idler wheel?

Zach Hoeken’s Wings are screaming out for a OpenSCAD redo. A 1 stop programmable airfoil? That would be liquid awesome.

It just keeps going really, There are over 220 pages of stuff, most of which could use updates… Honestly if 30 minutes flipping though Thingiverse doesn’t make you want to sit down and party with OpensCAD, HeeksCAD, and a cup of coffee, I don’t know what will.

    Yeah, I've had two major outbursts of grey in my hair. The first was when I became a school-teacher and the second has been MakerBot. Thanks for digging through the archives. Those old things bring back good memories and your right, a lot of them really could be freshened up!
