Lavalier Microphone T-Shirt Clip #3DPrinting #3DThursday


Lavalier Microphones (or “Lav’s” in the hip street lingo) are great for picking up clean, isolated audio from a person.

They work best when clipped onto a collar, lapel or other clothing parts I don’t know the names of.
They don’t work so well on T-shirts. But I like T-shirts! So one day whilst filming our show we came up with this solution.
1) Print object. I made several in base clothing colors like white, gray and black.
2) Clip the lav onto the front portion with the microphone pointed up.
3) Slide the clip onto the t-shirt neck (keep it centered so it stays straight) and loop the wire around the top.
4) Become a STAR!

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!
