Flomio launches custom 3D printables with an NFC Tag embedded
This story can be summed up by the name of Flomio’s video above: “NFC + 3D Printing = Awesome” — here’s more about this new project from 3ders.org:
NFC specialist Flomio has launched a new service that makes 3D printed objects with an NFC Tag embedded inside. Flomio has innovated a process of reliably embedding an NFC tag into the 3D printing process. “This is different from simply attaching a sticker tag to the bottom that anyone can remove.” said Richard Grundy, co-founder and CEO of Flomio to NFC World.
You can send 3D model file (.stl format only) to Flomio and then choose build size, NFC Tag, and color plastic (white, green, or blue). If the quoted price is accepted Flomio will print this NFC custom 3D printables in ABS plastic and deliver it at your door….

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.
