3D Printing. Electronics. DIY.

I'm Steven Quinn and in my free time you can find me doing 3d printing, working with micro-controllers, or just finding something DIY to do. Follow along below on my various projects.

Giraffe Pen Cup

The latest 3d printing creation — a giraffe themed desk pen cup for my wife. A little late for Mother’s day due to us moving, but better late than never, right? I wanted to make something that can help her feel a little closer to our daughter, while still being a little practical, hence this […]

3D AirPods

Trying to get back to doing more 3d modeling and renders, I made a quick scene of AirPods working on lighting and learning how to use MeshFusion in MODO. Took a little work to get my head around the basics of MeshFusion, but once I did, it was awesome.

Blue Shell Mario Kart Wheel Holder

Another 3d printing project done. I recently got a Nintendo Switch and my wife and I have been having a great time with Mario Kart 8. I wanted to create something that got the wheels for the game out of a drawer, but also looked fun sitting out. What better way of doing that then […]

3D Printed Laptop Stand

In the never ending quest of trying to keep my office neat and organized, one of those items that seems to never really have a home is my laptop when it’s not in use, so it tends to get either stacked on top of something, or it’s the bottom of the pile. Either way, it […]

Circuit Playground Arc Reactor

This was one of those projects that came about not because I really wanted to do it, but because I had some hardware lying around that was needing a project to put it to use. With my Adabox 006 from Adafruit, I got my hands on a Circuit Playground Express, which along with just an […]

Updated IOT Dog Sensor: Adafruit IO

After using the IOT dog sensor for a while, I went ahead and simplified it a ton. It only uses a single Feather Huzzah board now, and uses Adafruit IO + IFTTT to call my phone instead of requiring a custom Laravel website and a receiver with a speaker. Since it’s so much simpler, I’ve also created a little tutorial on how to make your own. Read on to learn how!

3D Printed Porg

I was so excited by the fun little character in the latest Star Wars movie trailer that I decided to make my own 3D printed Porg model to sit on my desk.

Arduino Powered Pumpkin

I picked out this fun gray pumpkin at the pumpkin patch. But what to do with it? Why not turn it into a green glowing alien, with a little Arduino power.

IOT Dog sensor

An IOT project using a few Adafruit micro-controllers to alert us when the dog needs to go outside. She rings the bell, and we get an audio playback in our room letting us know she needs to go out.

3D Printed Skeleton Arm

While I didn’t dress up for Halloween this year, I did manage to get in on a little bit of the fun. Thingiverse put on their 2017 Costume Contest and I figured I’d give it a go. I designed, printed, and assemble this 3d printed armature.
