Here’s how to use 123D Design from Autodesk to create a simple 3D Printed enclosure for projects using the Flora from Adafruit and other components. Using Neo Pixel LED stripes, we’re wanted to illuminate our long board for carving sessions at night. We’re using components from Adafruit: The Flora micro-controller, Neo-pixel LEDs, compact lithium battery and a tactile on/off switch. STL’s forthcoming to thingiverse @ “Pixil3D“!
FLORA – Wearable electronic platform: Arduino-compatible: For the last few years Ladyada has been thinking about everything she wanted in a wearable electronics platform for Adafruit’s community of makers, hackers, crafters, artists, designers and engineers. After months of planning, designing and working with partners around the world for the best materials and accessories, we can share what we’re up to. The hardware is now shipping! We call it the FLORA. Adafruit created the FLORA from scratch after many months of research and we really think we came up with something that will empower some amazing wearable projects. (read more)
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
