Here’s a fantastic interview with some great experts talking about how desktop 3D printers are transforming small businesses … well, this features me as an interview subject, as well as the interesting story of Chris Milnes, SquareHelper inventor.
With 3D printing, the factory comes home
Here’s why MakerBot was worth $403 million to Stratasys: The company’s printers can put small-scale manufacturing into the hands of an inventor, with no middlemen and minimal start-up costs. Here’s to a business model for the future.
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!
