Anouk Wipprecht and Polaire invite you to design a part of open source 3D printed dress #3DxFashion #NeoPixel #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Anouk Wipprecht and Polaire invite you to design a part of open source 3D printed dress. (And check out how they will be using our NeoPixel Rings!) From 3Ders.org:

Instead of keeping the design process to herself, 3D printed fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht wants to invent a dress with over 150 different elements, all created by makers around the world.

Join our open source element dress!” In collaboration with Polaire, Wipprecht is inviting people to design these 150 parts which will be connected all together into one dress.

Wipprecht will provide a base file of a simple element, which is available for download through Tinkercad, a 3D modeling app from Autodesk. How the dress takes shape is up to you!

To get started you may download the file, and remodel the element. You can add some extras on top and create a whole new feature. You can also just simply print it in a cool color or material. You are encouraged to add things that “can communicate a message for you, whether that is a symbol like a small heart, typographical like a text or a name, or something more abstract, architectural or mechanic.” according to Wipprecht….

NeoPixel Ring – 12 x WS2812 5050 RGB LED with Integrated Drivers: Round and round and round they go! 12 ultra bright smart LED NeoPixels are arranged in a circle with 1.5″ (37mm) outer diameter. The rings are ‘chainable’ – connect the output pin of one to the input pin of another. Use only one microcontroller pin to control as many as you can chain together! Each LED is addressable as the driver chip is inside the LED. Each one has ~18mA constant current drive so the color will be very consistent even if the voltage varies, and no external choke resistors are required making the design slim. Power the whole thing with 5VDC and you’re ready to rock. (read more)

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.
