Designer and Teacher Jason Welsh has started collecting a number of practical 3D model for 3D print with Blender resources within Thingiverse Thing 124594:
Ever wanted to learn to model in 3D specifically for print?
Ever wanted to see practical examples?
From time to time I do something and I feel I wanted to share the info so that others might also find it useful….hence this thing..
For example I needed to make a ball joint for a project. Rather than just share the ball joint only I share how I made it.
So this thing will be a Work in progress thing. you can call it a class which will also be located here.
But think of new people just getting into 3D printing and wanting to know how to model.. They don’t go to Youtube right away.. they come to thingiverse download models and look at how they are made,,,so that would be an interesting thing to make for them. A thing that teaches you to make things….
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!
