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!
If you haven’t visited MyMiniFactory yet, then you are in for a treat with their curated Collection of Props and Cosplay Printables at MyMiniFactory.com. Unlike many of the other repositories, all of the models up on this site have been selected…and test printed!
MyMiniFactory.com is a free library of 3D printable, beautiful and useful objects. The first version of MyMiniFactory was launched on the 18th June 2013. It is the result of many months of hard work by a professional team of experienced 3D designers.
Our large range of downloadable 3D printable objects will satisfy the growing number of 3D printer owners. Each object is original and unique. They have all been test printed by our team of 3D Printing Gurus on affordable 3D printers. Each design comes with a how-to section that explains how to achieve the best print. At MyMiniFactory.com we offer you the best user experience. We give you more credits to download more designs each time you give us feedback on an object. You can also request a specific item, request that an existing item is adapted for you or send us your own design to be printed. MyMiniFactory.com is calling on 3D designers across the world to upload their designs to our website and display their talents. Your designs will be seen by the large and growing community of 3D Printing enthusiasts who visit MyMiniFactory.com every day. Very soon designers will be earning cash based on the number of downloads of their objects….
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!
