3D Design Tips: modeling a unique printed box to be as special as the ring inside #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3DScanning

Ann Marie Shillito created a handy slideshow that shares the steps she went through to create a custom box to be a companion piece to the ring it would contain:

The technology we use makes a difference in the way we work. This story about digitally designing a box for a very special ring illustrates the process step by step.

Anarkik 3D Design haptic 3D modelling software was used and the box designed for 2 different methods of 3D printing: extrusion on a personal 3D printer, and laser sintering of polyamide powder through a 3D printing service provider.

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!
