MAKE’s Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing #3dthursday

I’m very proud to share with you MAKE’s Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing that I helped to put together late this past summer, along with a great crowd of 3D printing buddies including the tireless champion of 3D Printer Village, John Abella, who participates in the video above. (I wasn’t able to join Gareth and crew for the first one, but will join for the follow-up on Nov 15th.)

I’m looking forward to seeing the final printed version myself! This is such an exciting time for 3D printing — so many incredibly impressive machines and techniques from both the latest lean and feisty garage Kickstarter projects to the companies who have been around this block a few times.


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

Have you take 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 EL Wire and LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects!

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 have a cool project you’ve made that joins the traditions of 3D printing and electronics, be sure to send it in to be featured here!
