1 month, 4 venues, 400+ scans and 3D prints, 6,000,000+ files.
At the Brighton Digital Festival 2013, 3Dify provided the technology for the interactive installation Break the Mould. People were invited to step inside a giant sculpture, get scanned, digitised, and 3D printed as a mini sculpture of themselves. The installation was is in association with renowned Italian artist Emilia Telese and the excellent Brighton based digital agency Developing Dreams. Thanks to our Brighton Digital Festival hosts – the Jubilee Library, the new Clearleft Gallery where we appeared as part of the Third Veil of The New Sublime, and the Mad Hatter Cafe.
Thanks to our supporters who helped made this a reality: 3D printer makers extrodinaire Ultimaker, Faberdashery – probably the best and friendliest filament suppliers in the business, and the immensely talented guys behind Skanect – we think it is the best piece of software around for 3d scanning using an Xbox 360 Kinect.
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!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
