Makerwise 3D Printer Guide #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Here’s an in-development resource that attempts to help customers compare and contrast all desktop 3D Printers currently available: Makerwise 3D Printer Guide:
We’ve been following the 3D printing movement with great interest and like so many we’re very excited about its potential. But as new and innovative 3D printers are continually introduced, it’s becoming more difficult for potential buyers to keep track of their performance, quality and availability.
That’s why we set out to create this objective guide of each and every commercially available 3D printer out there. It is our goal to make this a platform where any individual or company will be able to find the 3D printer that fits their specific needs. So whether you’re a student, engineer, designer or just a tinkerer, we hope this site will prove useful in navigating the amazingly diverse world of 3D printers.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
