Benny Malengier published the stl files to Thingiverse for the Cork Angelo E-Cork for Maria-Cristina Ciocci presentation at Maker Faire Rome in a few weeks! From Maria-Cristina about her upcoming project:
This is a fun little project you can make with a child, provided you can print the pieces.
I’ll be on Maker Faire Rome with cork angelo and other e-corks, pay me a visit if you go! I’ll make cork angelo and other corks with visiting children.
And from the Maker Faire Rome maker description:
From simple cork to a unique electro artwork. Your first experiences in prototyping.
Technology offers many opportunities for both girls and boys!
Visting kids and adults can experience a unique workshop where they grasp some basic electronics and creates their unique hacked cork.
Maria-Cristina Ciocci is a very enthusiastic PhD in mathematics with four young children and with a fiery passion for technology. She is working as a postdoctoral assistant and researcher at Ghent University (B) within the bachelor and master of industrial engineering. In her spare time she founded
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!
