3D printed Wheelchair-Ramp for one step by nanonan on Thingiverse:

As a wheelchair-user i often need to overcome a step in front of a building, a shop, cafe or bar. Therefor i had the idea of printing me my own small ramp. It has to be as small as possible to carry it in my bag, when i’m on my way through Berlin.

This is my first prototype. Please feel free to print and to develop it… Any feedback is apreciated!

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!

  1. We’re in the business and if we ever decide to develop something like this one we’ll pass our feedback for sure. Great idea. Thanks.
