3DxReplica – Cool 3D-printed Wolverine Claws make children’s prosthetics super awesome #maketheworld #3DxEntertainment #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Today on our weekly live 3D Hangouts, as the season winds towards Halloween, we are celebrating the replica prop community (and movie props professionals themselves) by sharing our own Dune replica project. Here’s a quick roundup of a few other 3DxReplica projects that caught our interest to whet your appetite!

Cool 3D-printed Wolverine Claws make children’s prosthetics super awesome, from 3ders.org:

As explained on the blog of ‘E-Nabling the Future’, Aaron Brown wanted to construct a brightly colored hand for the local children’s hospital and also show it off at the MakerFaire. This two day technology fair for the whole family was held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, last week. But this Wolverine Prosthetic was undoubtedly one of the big eye catchers. Aaron explained that it came about as a combination of his love for both comic books and the local Wolverines college sports team:

The Comic loving nerd inside of me (along with some Facebook friends) said there is no way I can make a Wolverine hand without CLAWS…so I modelled some in Sketchup the morning before the MakerFaire, printed ’em, spray painted ’em silver and velcro’d ’em on there. Turned out pretty darn cool!

The response received at the MakerFaire was understandably positive, and has inspired him to produce more themed prosthetics for children. He adds that ‘People’s faces just LIT UP! The kids went crazy over it. And don’t worry…the claws aren’t sharp! They are rounded plastic and just stick on and off with velcro…we don’t need to cut off more fingers just to promote e-NABLE!’

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.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord
