Does everybody still know why in the ‘old’ days there was the need for running a ‘screen saver’ on the computer? With the modern LCD displays they lost their initial purpose. After “3D Printed Classic Mac Apple Watch Charging Station” I’m doing more ‘good old days’ 3D printing. The ‘elder ones’ might remember the “After Dark” screen saver software for Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows machines. Yes, that was 1991! For me most famous and iconic theme were the “Flying Toasters”:
Now there is a 3D printed version 🙂
If you want to try it out: There is a web-based version on http://www.masswerk.at/flyer/flyer.html to get back the feeling from these days!
For many of my embedded projects I use SD cards (see “FatFs with Kinetis“), and having the cards laying on my desk is a mess! So why not storing them in a flying toaster?
The model is on Thingiverse:
It includes optional wings 🙂
I have printed the parts with a Ultimaker 2 using PLA at 0.1 mm with no support structure. I used different PLA (silver, white and black) for the different parts:
Then glued the parts together.
The model and design files are available on Thingiverse here.
Happy Toasting 🙂
