#3DxHolidays – Advent Calendar by pleppik #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Both designed and designed to be printed over the course of the month — this is how desktop 3D printing re-interprets the Advent Calendar:
This advent calendar has (will have) a box for each of the 25 days in December through Christmas, and a small “gift” for each box. The boxes fit together to form the shape of a Christmas tree.
I will be posting a box and gift each day until Christmas. I will try to get each day’s parts posted the night before, so you will have time to print it on the proper day.
This Thing will eventually have all 25 days of parts. I will also post each day’s parts as a derivative of this Thing, so there will be a convenient place for any “I Made One” posts of the daily pieces.
THANKS TO EVERYONE who contributed ideas for things to make. I got a lot of great suggestions, and I wish I could have used them all.

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.
