We’re super excited to see people starting to use sugru as a desktop manufacturing material for prototyping rubber parts – and making them for final products too!
So we developed this project so that makers, engineers and designers could test the process and understand how to works.
Check out this video to see how to combine 3D printing and sugru to make the most awesome iphone protection ever 🙂
All the files are open source and free to download from Thingiverse. You can also order your mold directly from Shapeways.
The mold and process is not perfect, but was developed to demonstrate the potential for using sugru in desktop manufacturing and we’d love to hear your suggestions.
Free sugru for the very best 3D printing + sugru ideas.
If you think you can push this technique further, we’re giving free sugru to the very best ideas. What would you like to try? Email your ideas to email@example.com
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.
