A robotic 3D printer arm creates mayonnaise selfies on burgers in this film for Hellmann’s, part of a summer campaign the brand has launched in the U.K.. The wider campaign is based on the idea of “life hacks” — the online trend which sees people think up simple tricks, skills or shortcuts for everyday life. Hellmann’s is releasing on its YouTube page bite sized pieces of “summer hacks” throughout July and August. Some of the films demonstrate ideas that can be created with an empty mayonnaise jar; others, like this Burger Selfie film and one featuring a BBQ that dances to a DJ deck, are “hero” films aimed at capturing the feelgood factor of summer and barbeques.
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!
