Hi, I'm Max Glenister.

This website is a collection of all of the things I've been doing with my 3D Printer.

You'll find lots of examples of badly modelled things, poorly printed things, and a lot of wasted plastic!

Xenomorph Gift and Box

It was my friend Dave’s birthday, and he loves the Alien movie franchise.

I found a nice model of a Xenomorph Guard on Thingiverse and using Tinkercad stuck it on a base with his name.

I then designed a box to keep the model in, complete with snap-together functioning hinge. The box features the label “NOSTROMO” above the clasp on the front, as a reference to the ship from the movie.

The box had some problem printing – I suspect due to the layers cooling too fast – so the edges started to curl up off of the printer bed.

Beyond that it turned out great, and Dave loved it.
