[Last Friday marked] the 30th anniversary of the debut of the Macintosh. The Mac has revolutionized the technology world and has inspired a generation of innovation and innovators. It can be safe to say that everyone on Shapeways has either used or know someone who uses a Mac product. 3D printing in a way is experiencing its “Mac moment” as 3D printing technology is becoming more mainstream and accessible to the mass consumer. For the Shapies who have been inspired by Mac and Apple throughout the years, check out these Mac inspired 3D Prints…..
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! We also offer the MakerBot Digitizer in our store. 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!
