#3DPrint a Hot Swap Canon EOS M Battery Grip #celebratephotography

Great build from funkster.org:

I invested many many hours and a fair chunk (probably even enough to buy a nicer camera) of cash designing and building a battery grip that can be fed freshly charged 18650s without ever having to power down the camera or take it off its mount.

Apple Keyboard Holder #3DPrinting #3DThursday

Apple Keyboard Holder by yellowmart Thingiverse

yellowmart shared this project on Thingiverse!

Here is a quick-made “Apple keyboard holder” to get a cleaner desk. The cord of my main keyboard passes under… that is perfect for me. I hope it will help you too !

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

5″ LCD Desktop Case for Raspberry Pi #3DThursday #3DPrinting

5 LCD Desktop Case for Raspberry Pi by MakerPlane Thingiverse

Shared by MakerPlane on Thingiverse:

A remix of the desktop 5″ screen holder https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3532477

This is just a quick remix so that I can use my screens for testing on the desk before mounting them as instruments in the aircraft. The existing design was tippy so I added a foot at the back. I also increased the size of the top hole to get the USB C connector in for a Pi 4.

I haven’t bothered putting in screw holes for the bottom yet, or changing the front cover for the holes. It serves its purpose for now.

Just used Microsoft 3D builder to quickly add the bits.

20 Feb 2021: Added in a new front bezel along with the solidworks file. Put in screw holes at the bottom. Not worried about matching holes in the case, I just used a drill to match the holes with the cover top screwed in. Used 4 x 1/2″ wood screws. Again, this is just a quick remix to perform a function. I played around with text on the front bezel. Just used 3D builder and I used Simplify3D to create two processes. One for the front bezel and one for the text. At 0.1mm layer height, the break between the bezel and the text is 3.96mm.

Festive facemask seal #3DThursday #3DPrinting #Wearable

Festive facemask seal by dominuszagare Thingiverse

Snazzify and secure your PPE with this rad mask from dominuszagare on Thingiverse:

A festive mask that also works as a medical mask seal. It may not work well for your head shape because it was modeled after mine. But you can still scale it up slightly and use it as a regular mask. I also included a face-mask frame model and a more open version of the mask. Also included the blender project file if you wish to change the model.

Raspberry Pi Stackable Case Accessory Brackets #3Dprinting #3DThursday

Raspberry Pi Stackable Case Accessory Brackets by gskluzacek Thingiverse

gskluzacek shared this project on Thingiverse!

Please note:
The hole on the accessory brackets do not correctly line up with the holes on the respective brackets for the switch and USB charger. I had to re-drill new holes after I printed.

Additionally, when printing the bottom bracket for the 8 port switch, I ended up using supports, as when I printed without supports I was not able to get the nuts into the slots. However, getting the support material out of the nut slots was not easy either. YMMV.
