    3D Printed MINELAB EQUINOX 600 / 800 STAND

    ...for those who keep asking me on Thingiverse for a stand that fits the Equinox ... It's finally here !

    I've been testing these for a few weeks and they work great in keeping your detector up out of the muck and mud. These are completely free to download if you have access to a 3d printer. Feel free to comment or make suggestions to the design.

    Be careful using the Minelab Logo.. I am sure that is a trademark and you cannot sell them without licensing the use of the logo from Minelab

    Glenn ... nice work! What software did you use to develop the models? I just retired from teaching Drafting and Engineering and taught both SolidWorks and AutoDesk Inventor. I enjoy using both of these programs and am fortunate to have a teaching copy of Inventor on my home computer.

    Also, what 3D machine do you have? Mine is a second generation MakerBot (Cupcake Model) that needs to be coddled along to get a good print. I will admit that, when it works, it does a good job but the print area is limited to about 3 x 3 x 3 inches.

    I mainly used www.tinkercad.com/ for this design. It's super easy to make simple 3d models with tinkercad. Although I do use alot of other 3d model programs...
    ( Blender, Thingiverse Customizer, Tinkercad, Sketchup, Photoshop, 123D Design, OnShape)


    Im not that good just yet to be efficient enough while using them. STILL LEARNING.. and I've been 3d printing since 2014. I just use a lot of persistence in trial and error until I get a model that slices good in Cura. lol

    I'm using a Tevo Tornado and a Maker select v2.1 ... I love the Makerbot brand and looked at that cupcake model when it came out a few yrs back.
    I eventually want get a Makerbot Replicator or an Original prusa MK3.. both are awesome printers and are wayyyyyy of my price range at the moment. :}

    We had a couple of MakerBot Replicators at school and I really enjoyed using them. I wish I could have absconded with one of them when I retired but someone would have noticed. I got the Cupcake with a grant from a local electric co-op with the understanding that I would retain the equipment at the end of the grant. As I said, its a quirky machine but when it is in a good mood, it does a pretty good job. And, I like printing with ABS rather than PLA.

    Thanks for the info about the programs you use. I'll look at TinkerCad. I have Blender but, as yet, have figured out how to use it. Of course, I'm old and don't have the patience that I once did.

    - Update on some more 3D prints !

    Recently , I just started testing these tips I made for the F-Pulse / Tek-Point pin pointers. I may be giving away a huge batch of these late next week if anyone is interested. (Need some testers before I publish this print on Thingiverse.) This tip protector DOES NOT have any limiting effect on the sensitivity of the pinpointer.

    Colors will be red , black or orange and the tips will be 3D printed in ABS for strength and durability.

    Let me know if your interested... I'll be making a short list of needy people and sending a limited amount out for free !

    Glenn,

    Very cool stand. I like it. Can you tell me what advantages does the stand give you over just the built-in one below the arm cuff?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    First, great idea, very cool colour as well.

    Also happy to hear that they are not for sale; Minelab does not play games when it comes to their Logo, in 2007 they drilled that Serbian based company for producing key fobs. Company was Mile Dragavic, they specialized in counterfeiting all sorts of prospecting gear and military gear.

    But a DIY, that is still thankfully legal, but I think if some firms had their way they would love laws against that as well.

    Very cool looking, and pretty cool of you to just hand that out like that too.

    Just sell them without the logo, I bet a bunch of folks would buy one. It lifts the control box much higher out of harms way.
