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!
lerxstrulz shared a 3D printing Mando Helmet on The Dented Helmet:
Finally finished! The helmet had to be sliced off in the 3D file as mentioned above, so it needs to be reattached (it sits low in the pics) But all in all a great skeleton! Next is the fiberglass/bondo stage. Also tried printing the earcaps but they are not flat on the bottom and do not print well. Had one that might be passable, and would have been fine if they had been printed with the helmet, but it would not have fit on the bed with them on I’ll probably make some or order some resin ones. Anyway…here is the final print…
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! 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!
