The Great Fredini – 3D Printing Luna Park Coney Island NY [VIDEO] #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3DScanning
Documentarian Brian Federal shared an interview with the Great Fredini where he talks about his 3D Printed Luna Park Coney Island project — check it out here!
Fred Kahl, THE GREAT FREDINI, is 3D Printing a scale model of Luna Park as it stood more than 100 years ago in Coney Island, New York. Fred is a maker who has used innovative 3D Printing and scanning techniques to create this project. If you are in NYC this summer (2014) take a trip out to Coney Island and be part of history.
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!
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.
