Modular robotics researcher Juan Gonzalez-Gomez shared a parametric set of Penrose P2 tilings he created in FreeCAD.
"Only two Penrose tiles are needed for creating a non-periodic tiling. The tiles have been designed in Freecad, and they are parametric. Just open the Parameters spreadsheet (in freecad), change the parameters, generate the STL and print them. Examples of tiles with 30mm and 40mm side have been already generated and ready for printing and testing. Have fun tiling the plane!"

Here's an excellent vertical-axis wind turbine (VAWT) project that caught our eye. Created by Robotobi to interface with this work-in-progress low RPM Generator.
"A beautiful, modified Ugrinsky wind turbine. Intended for balcony and low windspeed use. Designed for Ultimaker 2 with Olsson block or UM2+ (max build volume, big nozzle, high printspeed)."

Alain Ducros has been sharing a couple of approaches to 3D printed Stirling Engines (check out his “Kit 1” version here) and this one is handy in that it can easily be dimensioned to suit the food containers that you select for the boiler cylinder.
Engine Stirling Gamma – KIT2 – The presented kit allows one to create a playful Stirling Engine in the spirit of a Lego construction set — working from printed parts, recycling classic food boxes, and a few off-the-shelf components….

An excellent print-to-learn project exploring traditional wooden looms. 3D Printed Loom by XYZWorkshopAn excellent print-to-learn project exploring traditional wooden looms.
...inspired by our recent visit to RMIT Fashion and Textiles University in Melbourne and seeing all those wooden looms we made a 3dprinted, modular, expandable loom.

MrCrankyface shared a 3D-printed RC truck that has been 12 months in the making!
After roughly 12 months development, this is what has come of it! It's an almost fully printable RC truck with gearbox and AWD drivetrain. All you need to build this, besides a lot of filament, is screws/nuts, bearings and electronics. This was a huge project to develop and upload so please let me know if anything is missing or unclear! ...

These two Overwatch projects recently shared by Oleg Osipov are not just satisfying cosplay prop builds -- bonus points for excellent use of incorporated electronics! -- but this approach to stacking and part insertion is a master class for how to make impressive colorful pieces, one color at a time. Benefits from contrasting colors up against each other, and also a wider pool of community members can run these files on their equipment.

This hollow skull model has passed through so many iterations, designers, and purposes, but this version caught our eye from philnelson, who renders this historic archeological skull model in a pleasing gridded mesh — as a pencil holder.
What particularly stood out was how well the gridded cage presents the contours of the form, the pattern and density of the mesh suggesting finer details than those actually present in the source model from garygeo, remixed from macouno, derived from… scanned by … dug up by … you get the picture. 😉

Keller Andre from Switzerland has been sharing a series of interesting 3D printed physics experiments for students. The way they are produced and how they can be presented make them tangible, physical “infographics” as well, each constituent part clearly enough to also inspire ways to adapt the components to explore other fundamental principles of physics.
