Noé+Pedro Ruiz: 3Dx2013 Year In Review #AdafruitTopTen #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3DScanning #3D

We reached out to a handful of 3D printing pioneers and designers featured on the Adafruit blog this past year for their thoughts on the year-in-review — and what we have to look forward to for 3D printing in 2014!

Noé and Pedro Ruiz are the creative brother’s behind the design studio, Pixil 3D. Residing in South Florida, the two brothers are designers who setup shop at home in West Palm Beach Florida. Traditionally a designer and video editor, the brothers have always had a passion to make really cool stuff. 3D Printing allows the two brothers to fabricate their ideas into physical products.

Pixil Bits:

Our top project we shared on thingiverse this year was our pixil bits. it has been downloaded over 10k times and our most made design! it’s a neat construction kit that can be used to store some things on your desk.

For 2014, we’re looking toward 3d printing solderless circuits. The conductive abs filament could make a great material for upcoming projects!


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.
