Tonight! Come Join the #3DThursday Pre-Maker Faire Happy Hour #3DPrinting

Tankard Text

Here’s a special treat that a large team of artists, designers, and engineers from the desktop 3D printing community have pulled together for this Thursday night — a friendly place to meet up in Brooklyn for those arriving into town (or here already) who will be taking part in any number of 3D printing related activities at Maker Faire this weekend!

I am a co-host, and (very generously 😉 ) offered the name of the event as a tribute to the many 3D-printing related activities that take place each #3dthursday (pronounced “three-dee-Thursday”) online and in hackerspaces across the world, not to mention a sizable number of the over 1,000 posts about 3D printing shared here to Adafruit’s blog since the beginning of the desktop 3D printing revolution. (Adafruit has been celebrating all of the exciting developments in this field, and we are thrilled to bring together so many talented individuals we have featured online to clink steins together and get to know each other!)

Thanks to Adafruit, MakerMedia, and a handful of individuals for pitching in free rounds of beer and treats for those who arrive to Die Koelner Bierhalle on the early side! Very generous, indeed!

And a special shout-out to co-host John Abella, “mayor of 3D Printer Village,” who has been coordinating what might now need to be renamed the “3D Printer Township“: which now consists of, by latest report, nine large tents worth of artists, designers, and engineers!

And thanks to co-host PrettySmallThings for the quick invitation artwork, featuring Zheng3’s SEEJ Tenpenny Tankard (a model we all thought was the perfect one to feature here).

After Hardware Gets Innovated…

Before the Maker Faire Comes Together Like a Squadron of Dueling
Marching Band-Circuses…

While your 3D printers are still crated and “working”….

There shall be….

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Join 32,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
