While RPF members already bagged the Key to Erebor nearly a year ago, here’s an interesting development: a (fairly) mainstream marketing campaign with a 3D model as the prize! Microsoft & Warner Bros offer 3D printer blueprint for The Hobbit ‘Key to Erebor’, via 3Ders.org:

To support the 13th December release of The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, Microsoft and Warner Bros announced the launch of a new cross-platform campaign and are offering a free 3D printer blueprint of The Key of Erebor from the film.

The ad campaign will run across Windows 8, MSN, Xbox 360, with an interactive, deep-dive into the film, including information about key characters, events and artefacts from the movie, actor biographies, behind-the-scenes videos and desktop wallpapers available for download.

The most interesting part is a 3D printer blueprint. The campaign will also offer Hobbit fans a free blueprint download for a 3D-printed model of “The Key to Erebor” – a major artefact in the film’s plot. Fans will be invited to produce their very own collectable memorabilia from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug for the cost of the print. The download will become available on the day the film is released: 13th December 2013.

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!


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.
