Minnesota Man 3D Prints a Real Castle – On to Printing a Full Size House Next #3DThursday #3DPrinting

For all of those projects that have been talking about 3D x Architecture and testing 3D printed architecture … here’s someone who is just going for it. Minnesota Man 3D Prints a Real Castle – On to Printing a Full Size House Next. From 3DPrint.com:

….Rudenko had a goal of 3D printing his full sized house sometime this summer, and although that still appears to be possible, he is a bit behind in the process. “Had to deal with a lot of different small problems,” Rudenko told us last month. “Now just started printing the small castle.”

The ability to print a smaller building would be able to provide him with enough confidence to advance onto the 3D printing of his house.  He hopes that he will learn from and make improvement upon the entire process, while 3D printing his small castle.

“It took some time to prepare the printer for printing outdoors since I had to figure out all the cables and waterproof all the switches,” wrote Rudenko.

Now, a month and half later, Rudenko has something to show, and it is quite amazing. The castle which is large enough for people to walk and stand inside of is almost complete. As you can see in the photos, the dark area (approximately 50 cm high) is 8 hours worth of 3D printing. “It was important for me to check the structure’s ability to stand (and not collapse) if I printed 50 cm in a row, since I am using regular cement,” said Rudenko. “Experiments have shown that I can print even more – looks like around 75-100 cm would work just fine in warm temperatures.”…

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!


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
