Make a Pokemon in Spore, take a screen shot and put him on a custom-made card! Template and example attached.
A pretty good list is available at http://appdevwiki.com/wiki/show/HomePage

Game icons - hundreds of free icons for games
Possibly of interest: An NSF sponsored collection of high quality scanned specimens (skeltons and fossils). The datasets are availalbe in a number of formats, some of them are available in STL, intended for 3D printing.
Following up on the HASTAC presentation mentioned here, I have posted a much longer, more throrough discussion.
I would like to revise and improve this draft.
(By the way, I couldn't find a good "Section" for this entry. "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.")
Work by Matthew Schroyer building sensors for drones:
Using the method described here - http://cucfablab.org/book/3d-print-your-spore-creature-3d I was able to create a number of monsters in 3D by using Spore, the game. I then later went back to combine parts from monster models with scans from the xBox Kinect.
Thanks to Robin Camille Davis for the donation!
I ran across this paper that explains one way to calculate support structures for 3D printing.
I found it relatively clear and easy to understand.
Of course, there are more than one way to skin this cat, so this isn't necessarily the way any given software works.
This is pretty cool:
When I was first told about the laser engraver I was told that I should always bring a PDF document to print. While looking through the epilogue website I see that you are supposed to be able to print in any format. Has anyone ever printed anything besides a PDF document? Would we have to set up the computer to do something different if we want to use a different file format? I am interested in printing some things that were drawn in autocad but am having a lot of trouble converting them to PDFs. I have scaling issues, and sometimes the drawings are just messed up once converted. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
