Little Bird Doorbell
Author: Maddy Date Posted:25 October 2017
Since we got the UPBox+ 3D printer I have had it going *every* day! So many prints...so much fun!
I used the bird head STL I found on thingiverse - also a resistor. The first bird I printed I managed to drop and the beak broke off :( ....so 6 hours of printing later (having decided that the head needed to be bigger) I had a glorious birds head.
After cleaining up the print, I painted it using my old warhammer paints (these worked beautifully on the plastic and otherwise sit longingly on my shelf).
I burnt a hole through the plastic for the button (having not printed a space for it) and cut out space for the doorbell circuit.
I used an off the shelf doorbell which we have had at the factory for ages and does a nice hoot-hoot noise when rung.
Here is a pretty video of the project
