2015.10.15 – NEW UPDATE – bf_4_1_compact.STL – for those with big scale 3D printers.
We have never printed this in 1 piece, but you can try it 🙂

2015.02.05 – NEW UPDATE – 2015_02_05_ant_update.STL – smaller gap above raft circle. Should be more stable and should not stick out of buildplate.

IMPROVEMENTS from previous generation of Bird Feeder 3.0

  1. We have decreased weight of bird feeder at 115g by perforation.
  2. You can print now without raft and supports! No more waste!
  3. Antlers connection have been improved and redesigned.
  4. We had added safety system. You just need some wire.
  5. We have made manual for instalation.

BINDING: REALY IMPORTANT
Use this bird feeder with 2 sided adhesive dual lock tape on your window. For binding on the window use this: http://www.g3.cz/katalog/suche-zipy-3m/dual-lock/3m-suchy-zip-dual-lock-sj3550
We have tested classic “foam” dual tape, and it did not work.
This dual lock tape eliminates movement of BF caused by exterior temperature changes (day/night, summer/winter). We have tested this for 6 months from summer until now (winter), and there was no falls.
(Magnetic binding is in progress, yes magnetic 🙂

SAFETY SYSTEM:
But just for sure, we have added safety system (see in manual). It is simple wire, connected with BF and leads into interior. You can use small circle (raft of antlers) where is our logo :), and glue it in interior on the window.
