3D Design Tips: Sketchfab 3D Scan Thursday Series – #5 Transport #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3DScanning
For the last few weeks, Sketchfab has been hosting a weekly “3D scanning Thursday”(#3DST) event around a theme — there have been shoes and coffee mugs (check out the selected winners for these two weeks below), and now this week’s challenge is #3DST #5: Transport. This is a great chance to boost your 3D scanning skills (with a handheld 3D scanner or a camera and 123D Catch), and watching these humble scans from the immediate vicinity of designers all over the world is the best part!
Thank you for participating in our Mug #3DST, and congrats to Kris, the winner! He picked the theme for this Thursday: Transport. It means you can scan a car, a bus (might be hard though :), a skateboard, a bike, or even a toy… any means of transportation, really.
Rules, as usual:
3D scan a means of transportation by Thursday, May 8th
Share it on your own Sketchfab account on Thursday, with #3DST5 in the title
The author of the model getting the most likes by Sunday is featured and gets to chose the following theme, which is announced at the beginning of the following week.

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!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
