Hardware Innovation Workshop: New Dimensions in 3D Printing and More! #3dthursday

Check out this raw slice of fresh ideas about 3D printing and digital fabrication straight from the live stream of MAKE’s 2nd Annual Hardware Innovation Workshop hosted at the College of San Mateo in California.

Watch from “go” for some dubious music and a few stray conversations between Dale Dougherty and passersby for the real “at the conference experience” or jump right to 02:30 for the proper start of the block. And check out below for an earlier block that includes Chris Anderson, ShopBot’s launch of HandiBot, and the Carl Bass (CEO of Autodesk) Keynote: “CAD for Makers” that will be of particular interest to the 3D printing folks!

From the conference agenda:

New Dimensions to 3D Printing

Additive manufacturing is heading in new directions, including the cloud.

  • Peter Weijmarshausen, co-founder and CEO, Shapeways
  • Nick Pinkston, founder, Plethora
  • Brook Drumm, founder and CEO, Printrbot
  • Wayne Losey, co-founder, Dynamo DevLabs

…and this recording continues (we can’t actually split it), with talks about Hardware Incubator resources including a nice easter egg surprise: desktop 3D printer pioneer Zach Smith talking about his new HAXLR8R program!

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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
