New Guide! NeoPixel Goggles Inspired by @watchmen

Watchmen’s Sister Night CircuitPython Neopixel Goggles

Build the Nite Owl tech from Watchmen to complete your Sister Night costume. In this project, we’re building NeoPixel goggles inspired by HBO’s television series Watchmen. Control the NeoPixel LED animations with a rotary encoder. Display up to four different modes with control like speed, colors and brightness of the NeoPixels. The 3D printed parts fit over costume goggles and snap fit together!

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!

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!

Ironman wearable Arc Reactor costume powered by El Wire

Ironman wearable Arc Reactor costume powered by El Wire

Here is a project I have been trying to finish for over a year and finally took time this week to complete it!

Here’s a video of me developing the final model and assembling it if you’re interested!

For Halloween this year I am going as Tony Stark (from Iron Man 2). I designed the chest arc reactor screenshots from the movie and 3D printed the parts in Carbon Fiber PLA to make it lighter. To attach the part to the shirt I used two parts and some simple 5/8″ screws.

The model can be built WITHOUT any supports. If you do make one please share with us! I know there are plenty of novel ways that this can be made better or tailored for a specific use and would love to see what you do with it.

I used el-wire I purchased from Amazon (here is an affiliate link to what I used https://amzn.to/2NCxtiX I’ll get a small fee if you choose to purchase) and used a low-temp hot glue gun to bond it to the surface. To make the screws sit flat on the side facing my chest, I used a chamfer deburring tool.

Shift Buckle for meander shaped stretch belt

Shift Buckle for meander shaped stretch belt

This thing is a remix of https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3835593 and https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3909930. The bucke is improved and much smaller. I had some problem that the buckle of thing 3909930 opened for its own under heavy load.

The 20mm belt is included as a stl file in addition. This stl is much smaller than the belt from thing 3835593 and will therefore be calculated much quicker in cura. If you want a different width, I recommend to scale it by modifying the Z-factor inside your slicer program.

Shared by Darak_Chen on Thingiverse:

Hi, I’m a hobbyist watchmaker, this is a watch hand press, I always want to have a more sturdy way to install watch hands, but I already own a nice set of Horotec watch hand installing tools, so I don’t want to buy a watch hand press if I can just design one using the nice tools I have.

so I design one, the dimensions are for Horotec watch hand tools, please measure your tools before printing this out, dimensions are in the photos, enjoy.
