Hello everybody !
sorry, had to clean up some things and hope, I could now give a little more structure to this internet presence.
After a “small relaunch” you can now find the current topics or posts linked to this homepage. Older posts are now accessible only via the corresponding menu items / categories, or from the tag cloud on the pull-down menu.
On ways4.eu new categories and menu entries have been added to improve clarity.
New category Paintings
In the Painting category you can now find all of my pictures painted on canvas or other materials. Most of the works are done in acrylic on canvas. Otherwise, the important details for each picture are explained in the post. The corresponding menu can be found as a sub-item to the Arts and Culture menu.
New category Digital Painting
The images painted or drawn on a computer or smartphone can now be found in the Digital Painting category. Again, the motives and further details of each picture are explained in the post. The corresponding menu can be found as a sub-item to the menu Arts and Culture.
New category 3D Print
To summarize all my activities in terms of 3D printing under a common category, there is the new category 3D-Print.
There you can find all self- printed or self-designed 3D models. For each article you will find more details about the model, the design and printing or print preparation etc. Since the number of posts in this category is relatively large already, I will possibly implement further subcategories in the future. The new category was added as a sub-item to the DIY-Menu.
3D-Print: KitchenAid Adapter for Sodastream
Our KitchenAid Sodastream looks very chic, so beautiful in black / silver:
After some Problems at the beginning it works very well now. Bubbles our excellent Bühlertäler tap water. However, it has a small flaw: there is no suitable glass bottle for this model.
Neither Sodastream nor the Kitchenaid manufacturer provide suitable products for this purpose. That's a pity, so it was obvious to see if there is a suitable adapter with which smaller standard glass bottles with standard threaded fasteners can be docked to the kitchenaid connection.
Next thing i tried was this:
Also not suitable for our kitchenaid, because the lower edge was missing for the gripping arm.
Unfortunately so, nothing suitable for our device was available on thingiverse.com as stockpart. That's why I took the appropriate measurements, first from the Kitchenaid / Sodastream bottleneck:
then from the bottleneck of a smaller lemonade glass bottle:
With these measurements, I was able to use the CAD software fusion360 to construct a suitable adapter that makes the glass bottle fit the Kitchenaid connection. The result is prepared for 3D printing as an STL file available here on thingiverse.com for download .
As printing material i recommend a material as stable as possible such as ABS or similar to give the adapter the necessary strength and stability. Support material or brims / rafts for print-to-bed adhesion are not required for printing. The print resolution should not be set too low due to the modeled thread, I have made good experiences with 0.15mm at 0.3mm nozzle size.
Please be careful when using the adapter. The Sodastream is a pressure device, and applying rapid pressure to a device not meant for such things can cause explosions and severe injury !!
I may not be held responsible for any damage or injury that may occur when using the adapter. Use at your own risk !
As you may have noticed, this website has been switched to https:// several days ago. This means that ways4.eu is no longer available with https://www.ways4.eu.Instead with https://www.ways4.eu it is available. If you haven't already done so, please change the bookmarks saved as favorites in the browser accordingly. However, the site is currently still accessible via http, but the response time takes slightly longer: in such cases the https page is called via a redirect that will result in the longer response time.

This beautiful lotus blossom was 3D-printed with very favorable PLA filament in interesting green camouflage shade:
To avoid support I used the Cura option - Make Overhang Printable -
This makes it easy to print the object without support, brim / raft, etc. on my anycubic delta Kossel plus 3D printer. The result can be found as a make on thingiverse.com:
