Found Stuff to 3D Print on Thingiverse

I was browsing through the entries on Thingiverse and found some things to 3D print at the Milwaukee Makerspace when I have time.

First of all, I found this cool looking wobbly chess set and board.  I would like to print a copy to either give away or raffle off at the Star of Bethlehem Open chess tournament that I am organizing along with the International Academy of Chess on January 25, 2014.  I'm not really sure what I am going to do because the person who uploaded this thing says it took 60 hours to print.  That will be a challenge for me since I only have about 4-5 hours per week to work on this and the tournament starts in about eight weeks.


Another Thing I found is a case for an LCD screen.  This would come in handy for the enclosure of my Home Environmental Sensor Array.  In phase two or three of the HESA project, I want to add an LCD display so the computer (probably a Beaglebone) will display current status information.


Finally, I added this DIY Magnetic Stirrer to my collection of things to make.  This looks interesting to me because it will let me use the 3D printer, which is always fun, and because it re-uses an old computer fan, keeping it out of a landfill.  I don't do chemistry experiments that require a stirrer but maybe someone at the Makerspace can use it.
