Welcome to Makers Workshop. We are bringing you all of the best parts of a Makerspace, virtually. Join our community, no matter where you are located. This includes digital files and project inspiration, a collaborative community, CNC machine access, and online course to learn from experts. We are happy to see you here. Let’s make something together.
Check out the Virtual Makerspace to see which features are currently available and what is still in process.

Today we are making a leaf blower powered Inflatable-Flailing-Arm-Dancing-Thing…. waving inflatable tube guy…. wacky waving tube man…We still aren’t really sure what these are called. But you get it: The Car Dealership Things.
We wanted to make one powered by our Makita 18v Blower… or rather see if we could. We started this build unsure if it was going to even be feasible for the size finished guy we were hoping for.
We love projects that use a wide range of tools and processes, and this wound up being one of those. Making this used the See Me CNC 3D printers, sewing machines, and our Laguna EX Laser Cutter. We hope this makes you smile as much as it made us smile 🙂
This was quite the stop-and-go design process. I had more than a few moments of wondering why the heck I thought this was a cool idea in the first place or if it would even work. That being said… I’m really glad I stuck with it. This thing is pretty cool (if I say so myself) and I can’t wait to use it.
The walnut + grey + aqua color combo looks even better in real life, and this thing has plenty of room. It’s naturally a bit more delicate than a typical canvas backpack would be; this is more of a handbag alternative. I think it could also make a great lunchbox if you added an insulated lining.
If you’re making something by hand, what’s the point of 3D Modeling it?
You don’t need the design for a CNC Machine of any sort… Is it worth learning to 3D Model?
… well here’s the case for learning 3D Modeling, even if you have no intention of ever using a digital tool in your life.
