#3DxMechanicals – triple helix for the home printer by gathem #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Guest Curator Emmett Lalish has this to say about this 3DxMechanicals project: “As usual, I just can’t get enough of gears. This is a great counterintuitive showpiece. I also really appreciate that they took the time to design a version we could all print.”
HenrySeg builds incredible 3d objects. I found this creation on youtube and he was kind enough to upload it to thingiverse.
However it was not designed to be printed at home. The files were also not to scale. So I scaled the pieces, broke them down into 3 files: box, box lid, and screw so that it could be printed on a home printer.
This was printed at .3 layer height, 100% fill, at 100m/s with full supports.
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.
