ICTP – A Guide to the Third Dimension #3dthursday

Cover 3d printing

ICTP scientists publish free downloadable book on low-cost 3D printing:

ICTP announces the release of a free, downloadable  book on a new technology that has the potential to revolutionize science,  education and sustainable development: three-dimensional (3D) printing.  The book, titled “Low-cost 3D Printing for Science, Education and Sustainable Development”, offers a practical guide to this rapidly evolving technology,  giving an overview of current research on the topic and its uses in science  education. It was compiled and edited by ICTP’s Science Dissemination Unit  (SDU) and can be downloaded free of cost from the website.

The affordable and easy-to-use technology is good news for developing  countries, where 3D printing could open up exciting opportunities for  research, education and humanitarian projects. As an institute dedicated  to promoting sustainable science in the developing world, ICTP is prepared  to advance the adoption of this technology in these regions. The book’s  editors -Enrique Canessa, Carlo Fonda and Marco Zennaro- want readers to  understand and explore the huge potential that 3D technology provides. 

The book is divided into four main sections: 

  • a detailed view on the technology with information on how to create a 3D   printed object, the related open source hardware and software, the kits   available in the market today, and a glimpse at future projects;
  • applications of 3D printing in scientific fields ranging from mathematics,   physics to archaeology, space science, and medicine;
  • innovative ways for the technology to be used in education;
  • a glimpse of the immense potential the low-cost 3D technology can have on sustainable development including plastic recycling.

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!



Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

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.
