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!

Collapsible dice tower #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Take a gander at the dice tray of your siegelike dreams. Imagine if this was sitting on the table during the gaming sequences in E.T. or Stranger things. Shared by aclugston519  on Thingiverse:

Hey everyone, I have designed a collapsible dice tower that pulls up and rotates to lock into place. Each piece can be printed separately and assembled. It was a fun piece to design and I hope you guys get some use out of it!

3D Hangouts – Matrix Portal, MIDI Feather and Metroid Helmet

This week we’ll take a look at the Matrix Portal sand demo and 3D printed handles with battery holder. Demos this week include the class pi zero digital sand and the newer matrix portal. Quick look at the WIP MIDI melody maker updated with new Adafruit MIDI FeatherWing. Nice amount of community makes along with this week’s timelapse tuesday, a massive 3d printed helmet from the classic game Metroid.

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Matrix Sand #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Learn guide: https://learn.adafruit.com/matrix-portal-sand

In this project we’re making 3D printed handles for the Adafruit Matrix Portal.

The Adafruit Matrix Portal is a plug-n-play dev board that makes it easier to do internet connected projects using RGB matrices.

It features a Cortex M4 and the ESP32. It also has an on-board LIS3DH accelerometer.

With the STEMMA QT connector it can work with Adafruit’s 50 plus Stemma QT boards.

USB MIDI Pedal Box #3DThursday #3DPrinting

todbot shares:

This is a small four button foot pedal for sending MIDI messages via USB.
The case is design to slide together and the ends snap on, so in theory no fasteners or adhesives are necessary. There are three different end cap variations: blank, USB jack, and USB + MIDI jack.

Print two end caps of whichever you prefer, and also print a “top” and a “bot”. Use either momentary guitar pedal footswitches or 12mm buttons (as in the photo).

The controller inside the box reading the buttons is a Trinket M0, but an ItsyBitsy M0 would work better, more code space. The code is written in CircuitPython.

Fusion360 file included in case you want to modify the box easily.

No touch device #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Flisgut shares:

The objective of this design was to find a way to make a contactless device that, with relative simplicity, solves the maximum of common circumstances that require direct contact of the hands, for example, driving a shopping cart. Speaking of hands, i think it is evident that the mechanism is inspired by a “success story” of Nature :-)) The thumb / index gripper mechanism of our hand.

Wool-like material can remember and change shape #WearableWednesday #3DPrinting

The applications for this product are endless. Via Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences on YouTube

SEAS researchers have developed a biocompatible material that can be 3D printed into any shape and pre-programmed with reversible shape memory. The material is made using keratin, a fibrous protein found in hair, nails and shells, extracted from leftover Agora wool used in textile manufacturing. It could be used in anything from self-fitting bras to actuating textiles for medical therapeutics and could help reduce waste in the fashion industry.

Improving Layer Strength by Annealing 3D Prints in Plaster

In this video, Stefan of CNC Kitchen makes an amazing discovery. By annealing 3D prints in plaster, you can significantly improve their strength and their heat tolerance.

He did have some issues with “demolding” the parts from the plaster and plans to do additional tests. It will be interesting to see where this leads. As someone adds in the comments: “Before putting in plaster, coat with a sealer and then a mold release. Avoids moisture absorption and reduces cleanup.”
