MAKE’s Anna Kaziunas France shared really helpful coverage of 3D printed highlights of the Faire, but I think my favorite of the Vines and photos she grabbed were these for Alden Hart’s TinyG tech demos. While TinyG hasn’t yet been used for 3D printing (though certainly for moving a 3D printer wicked quickly), this is not only inevitable, it is a goal that they are actively pursuing.
For more context and details about TinyG, visit the article at MAKE:
The TinyG is an embedded, multi-axis motion control system from Synthetos designed for CNC applications that require highly precise motion control for small to medium sized motors. The TinyG has been used with the Shapeoko and a previous version of the board was used as the basis for the Othermill electronics.
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!
