Prototyping Entire Projects with a 3D Printing Pen #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Inspiring use of a “3D Printing Pen” for whole cloth prototyping: prtinging a fully-functional quadcopter design in 2.5 hrs. From Solidsmack.com:

Design visualization specialist, aerial cinematographer, Maker and all-around mad genius Matt Quest has created what is sure to go down as one of the best uses for a 3D printing pen to date: a quadcopter design.

Using a 3D Airpen, Matt has provided us with an awesome timelapse video that shows how he went from template to fully-functional prototype in 2.5 hours….

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 Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer 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!
