Thingiverse gets a facelift today, with new responsive layout for tablet & mobile, user profile redesign, parts filtering, new homepage, and more.
From the MakerBot Blog:
We are incredibly excited to launch a redesign of thingiverse.com today. Our Design and Development teams have been cranking away to improve your Thingiverse user experience. We concentrated on the core pages of the platform in this release, and there is much more to come over the next few months.
Among the many improvements, you’ll see that the whole site is now responsive. Using your computer, tablet, or phone, easily view the new homepage and quickly like or collect items on the explore page. We’re also curating collections to surface cool things you may have missed.
We’re most excited about these updates:
- View the new, responsive grid layout with your computer, tablet, or mobile device.
- “Like,” “Collect,” and “Comment” easily within the grid format.
- Discover the best of Thingiverse on the redesigned Homepage.
- Personalize your user profile with a cover image.
- Search for things and users, then sort by newest, relevant, and most makes.
- Filter your Dashboard to see exactly what you want.
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!
