The fine folks over at SeeMeCNC announced a massive 15 foot delta printer that will be unveiled at Maker Faire Detroit. Check out the video and watch how it was hard to even stand the frame up, using a forklift.
The SeeMeCNC Partdaddy stands a staggering 15 feet tall, and as you can see by the video at the bottom of this article, it was not easy to maneuver the machine within the company’s workshop. The printer will be capable of building objects of extremely large size, via pellets of plastic, not traditional spooled filament.
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!
