Will you be in or around NYC in the month of February? Here is a great range of classes on a variety of topics related to 3D printing and design for 3D printing.
I will be offering a class Friday, February 8th from 7pm-8:30pm called “Designing Objects to Interface with the Real World” which will feature how to use open source design software Blender and OpenSCAD to create projects designed to interface with displays and other electronics — and how to share your design files so that others can benefit.
While the course will emphasize setting up Blender for CAD-like functionality, I will be joined by an OpenSCAD secret guest who will walk us through some elite best practices for creating parametric designs such as those now in place for the MakerBot Customizer on Thingiverse.com.
Here are details for all of the classes on offer at 3DEA:
Throughout the 3DEA pop up, we offer a fantastic lineup of classes, lectures, competitions and presentations. Learn more about what we’re offering by clicking on the pictures above. Like a 3D printer, our lineup is constantly evolving.

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!
