Virginia Tech Additive Manufacturing Design Competition Winners 2014 #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Virginia Tech Additive Manufacturing Design Competition Winners 2014:

The Virginia Tech Applied Research Corporation (VT-ARC) and Virginia Tech DREAMS Lab engaged with the next-generation of engineers in the pilot Additive Manufacturing (AM) Grand Challenge to design and fabricate vehicles specifically for AM. While enthusiasm for AM has significantly accelerated in the past decade, widespread industrial adoption of AM for production of end-use products has been somewhat tempered. This challenge is a first step towards realizing the full potential of a deployed AM system capability for modular and tailored needs where vehicles and parts that are to be downloaded and printed will be designed a priori.

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 LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and 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!
