123D Design: Making Armor Pieces Using Loft #3DPrinting #3DThursday

James Bruton from XRobots.co.uk shares a great 123D Design tutorial on his process for designing custom armor pieces, like his IronMan suit.

The loft feature in 123D Design basically allows you to create unique and new object types by connecting (‘lofting’) between two or more profile sketches. Here’s a great tutorial from Autodesk that uses the lofting feature to create a motorcycle tailpipe by lofting between two or more circle sketches.

This is a tutorial for using the ‘loft’ feature in Autodesk123D to make custom armour sections. You can join my Facebook page.

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!
