3DP Plastic Voronoi Housing Complex:

We use over 15,000,000 plastic bottles a day but only 50 per cent are recycled. At the same time oil prices have pushed up the price of recycled plastic by 300 per cent over the last ten years.  Is it time we should reconsider our view of plastic as a purely expendable material? 

The project speculates how emerging techniques in 3D printing could investigate an architecture completely built from recycled plastic. In the built environment large-scale additive manufacturing has been largely concerned with replicating conventional architectural models, ignoring the possibilities of the material and process. Based on a modular system informed by a Voronoi geometry, Stay Plastic proposes a construction process distinct from traditional machining techniques.  The design is lead by intricate sequential layering that allows for the most material efficient but spatially generous units. Through the use of mobile industrial-sized printing arms the scheme transforms the existing Western Riverside Recycling Centre on the banks of the River Thames into s series of mansion blocks entirely built from plastic.

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!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
