Yesterday I made this progress meter attachment for the 3d printer that I have at work, that rotates to show me how far along my print is:
Love 3d printing with your Thing-o-Matic, but wish there were a better way to see how your print is progressing? Well, today is your lucky day- if you’ve got a spare hobby servo (the one in the Unicorn works great), then you can make your very own progress gauge!
Source code and directions on Thingiverse.
That’s really cool. You could laser cut/engrave the progress indicators as well
Thanks! Yeah, I’m planning to make a nice enclosure for it here at some point…!
Actually, I rather like the hand-written backdrop. Makes it more whimsical.

Ha! For this, I would refer you to the fire visualizer:
