Spotting this excellent Hayao Miyazaki figurine over at the 3D Printing G+ community. Bigshot Toyworks were creating this figure, and shared their 3D test prints as well as a rendering of the final object. Really great tribute to the director, writer, illustrator, and animation studio executive!
Hayao Miyazaki is a legendary Japanese director, artist and cinematic visionary. Miyazaki’s filmography spans decades and features such iconic films as Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away and Ponyo among many, many others.
To celebrate the joy that Miyazaki has brought into our lives, Martin Hsu has teamed up with Bigshot Toyworks to create and produce a limited run of Miya-San figures. Full specs of the Miya-San figure, pricing, and the timing of the pre-sale and release of the figure will be announced soon….
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, 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.
