3D printing macro photography by Alan Nguyen, via Dezeen.com:

Product designer Alan Nguyen has taken a series of extreme close-up photos of 3D-printer filament waste, revealing how the machines can produce detritus of surprising beauty.

A product designer at Amsterdam 3D printing firm Freedom of Creation, Alan Nguyen created the images using blobs of filament generated when changing the cartridge of plastic on a Cube 3D Printer.

“Normally people just throw them away, but I’ve been collecting these strands of filament for over a year now and they are just so beautiful,” said Nguyen.

“It’s pure poetry,” he explained. “Being produced from a machine that is designed to create exact physical copies of predefined digital code dictating where they should be laid down by Cartesian coordinates, they are free-moving spontaneous bursts of purely saturated awesomeness.”

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.
