#3DxMechanicals – The Armadillo – A Case of Two Halves by Gyrobot #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Guest Curator Emmett Lalish has this to say about this 3DxMechanicals project: “I love that more people are thinking about preassembled design now. This is a really elegant design, and it shows off well the strengths of 3D printing.”
Following on from the success of the Nested Birdhouse, I thought I would push the nested small footprint concept a little further, with a printable case. Use it as a lunchbox, purse, briefcase, clutch bag, backpack, fashion accessory etc, you decide.

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.
