Back to School 3D – Laura Taalman, Achievement Unlocked: Day 365!!! Last day of the print-every-day-for-a-year project! #3DxEducation #3DThursday #3DPrinting

MakerHome

Last week, we shared a neat project from Laura Taalman /mathgrrl’s Print-Every-Day nominated by Josh Ajima. We wanted to highlight more of Laura Taalman‘s work to encourage readers to explore her writing and printing in greater depth….

And guess what! Since last week…. she finished her 365 day year of printing! We are impressed!

On her last day, she printed herself a trophy, and is taking time away she probably should be congratulating herself, thanking everyone who helped her make this past year of printing possible.

Day 365!!! Last day of the print-every-day-for-a-year project!
I think the first thing that needs saying here is that a year is a very long time. There are a lot of days in a year. After about 60 or 70 days I remember thinking that we were probably halfway through this year-long blog thing and then being shocked at just how many days there are in a year. Damn.

But it is over, we have finished the year and so we get a TROPHY. Since our 3D-printing journey began with the desire to print knots, our trophy is a tiny 3D-printer (model from RichRap’s very cleverly designed Advent Makerbot Replicator 2), which is printing an even tinier knot (model dating back all the way to the beginning of this journey, on Day 9):

…Technical notes, ending flavor: After this post we will definitely be taking a break from the blog for a little while. Next week I start my new job as Mathematician-in-Residence at MoMath, the National Museum of Mathematics, and I imagine that I’ll be snowed under with crazy projects pretty quickly. But we still have some guest posts coming up, and more things to learn about, design, and print, so the blog will continue, just more slowly….

Check out the entire year here — rewinding to the first entry below….

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.
