Give the gift that keeps on (3D) printing this Valentine’s Day
Give the gift that keeps on (3D) printing this Valentine’s Day. We printed up some black roses, they’re cold, dark and made out of PLA, like our hearts, well not really 🙂 These roses are “Rose with stem” by tc_fea. If you’re looking for a special gift, give the gift of freedom, an open-source LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer (now in stock).
Either way, downloading and printing some black roses is pretty fun!
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.
