3D printed Cube business cards end up ON your desk #3dthursday

CallingCubeMGSalon

Picking up on the desktop 3D printing tradition of 3D printing your own business cards, startup CallingCube have re-conceived the physical printed calling card as a tool for those beyond the 3D printing world as well. These are, I must say, rather cute. For more ideas how people have approached 3D printed business cards over the past four years, check out this Thingiverse search. From 3ders.org:

Do you find normal business cards are bit boring? Ohio-based CallingCube reinvented the traditional business card and come up with CallingCube, a new patent-pending business card and marketing tool. “The CallingCube is designed to make your message stick in the minds of your clients. In other words, the CallingCube™ acts as a tipping point for your business.”

The size of a CallingCube is just 1″x1″x1″ (25x25x25mm). “Unlike paper business cards, the CallingCube is hollow with solid walls, and features standard indented text and logos for a premium weight and feel.” It is billed as “the premium business card they won’t throw away” and designed to be given away on trade-shows, networking events, one-on-one sales meetings etc.

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!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
