Awesome wormy slug from _Isaiah_ on Thingiverse:
Due to a ridiculously convoluted inside joke involving racing lawn mowers, songs by Rush, and home-grown potatoes, I decided to make some articulated slugs for my family for Christmas. My main interest in this project lay in the joint design. I wanted to design a joint that would print in place, fully assembled, with no support, no visible internal workings, and with as much freedom of movement as possible. After a lot of work, I finally designed a joint, and a slug, that I’m happy with. Now I am entrusting the model to you, so that you too can begin the day with a friendly slug.
I’ve provided two STL files, one with built-in brims on the slug’s feelers and one without. I wanted to have a built-in brim on the feelers so that I wouldn’t have to enable brims in my slicing software. Use whichever you like.

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!
