Colin Butgereit has been making quite the study of metalworking and print-to-cast workflows in his free time since he joined MakerBot two years ago. Check out some of the latest additions to his MindoverMinimalism Etsy store: both printed and cast pieces! (Thanks to his colleagues at the Madagascar Institute for the tip!)
From the piece included above:
This set includes the Round Top and the Flat Top rings together.
Designed in 3D CAD software. Printed on a 3D printer. Cast in white bronze.
This hand-made round top ring is perfect for any outfit, any day of the year. One of a kind styling to show off, yet basic enough to blend in to fit your need.
With three sizes to choose from, these will fit many fingers, but if you would like to request a specific size, please message me and I will be happy to accommodate you. Please allow for additional ship time for customized items. Please see my shop policies or feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
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!
