Grabbers #3Dprinting #3DThursday

Grabbers by cooasty Thingiverse

cooasty shared this project on Thingiverse!

A remix of wonderful builds by SirRob. Scaled and added spring loaded button.

Drill HD pivot pin units with a # 50 index bit for a nice firm hole. Requires careful use of knife to break loose components. Install filament for pin. Heat pin ends to form a button. Best to use a soldering iron or equal for the side close to the grabber.

LD uses a ball point spring cut down. HD uses a full spring. Install spring, glue button, button reinforcement, then position clip and glue. Clip is applied to the bottom to help hold the spring and rod in place.

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!
