Handy Projects Bringing Together 3D Printing and Electronics! #BackToSchool

Pasted Image 8 7 14 12 04 PM

One of the best things about bringing together 3D printing and electronics: as the manufacturer yourself, you get a chance to learn everything about what you are creating! Take advantage of these three Adafruit Learning System Guides selected for their practical value, along with links to electronics “vitamins” you need along the right hand side of the tutorials.

Charger Charm – 3D Printed holder for Micro LiPo USB Charger: So many projects will need little batteries and little battery chargers. It’s great to start the school year with a friendly, personalized charger for the projects they will invent and share. Our Adafruit micro Lipo USB chargers are great for charging your projects that use our Lithium Polymer Batteries. They’re so small and light, it’s a easy to bring take them with you but you wouldn’t want to lose one! (read more)

PrintrBot NinjaFlex Extruder Upgrade: Know a student or a teacher with a PrintrBot Simple or Simple Metal? Upgrade the our trimmest, most school-deskiest 3D printer with a filament guide to permit other materials such as flexible filament for printing bands, enclosures, and wearables! NinjaFlex is our favorite TPE based filament because it works great with our wearable projects. If you’ve ever tried printing NinjaFlex on a PrintrBot, you may have noticed a small problem. It doesn’t extrude so well. TPE material is so flexible that the filament actually buckles just before reaching the hotend. The drive gear and the hotend are so far apart that the filament can actually tangle! And check out our 3D Printing with NinjaFlex guide for more suggestions. (read more)

3D Printed Camera LED Ring: One thing that every student and educator needs — tools to help them document their projects! Here’s a project that helps you with your future projects! Trying to get those pixel perfect macro shots on a budget? Build your own DIY low cost ring of light with a NeoPixel Ring and Trinket, Adafruit tiny arduino micro controller. The color and brightness of the LEDs can be programmed to color or pattern! (read more)
