3D Printed Skulls from Sugar Lab, Designed by Josh Harker #3DThursday #3DPrinting

3D Printed Sugar Skulls from Sugar Lab, designed by Josh Harker:

With Halloween fast approaching, Liz and I were trying to think of some fun confections to make at The Sugar Lab for the occasion. We soon settled on 3D printed sugar El Día de los Muertos skulls–a modern take on a classic autumn sweet! We immediately contacted Josh Harker on Twitter. Being huge fans of his anatomical filigrees, this seemed like the perfect excuse to collaborate. It was great timing, because Josh had recently completed a new Day of the Dead ready piece called Cráneo de La Calaca, and was on his way to celebrate in Mexico. The results, rendered in chewy cotton candy flavored sugar, are sweetly stunning! We’re going to try to make enough for the trick-or-treaters on our block!

Josh Harker is an American artist  who is considered a pioneer & visionary in 3D printed art & sculpture .”What could be more fun and better timing than to print one of my skulls in sugar in honor of Dia de Muertos? ” he says. “A short story born from a curious tweet from The Sugar Lab to print one of my designs that turned into a quick collaboration. I’m amazed at the technology’s ability to turn such a common material into such an elaborate presentation. A wonderfully temporary medium that reflects sweet impermanence perfectly.

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!
