Today on our weekly live 3D Hangouts we are celebrating the many ways that 3D printing intersects with the worlds of games, gaming, gamers, and gamer fandom. (And we tackled a challenging Halo cosplay project!) Here’s a quick roundup of a few other 3DxGames projects that caught our interest to whet your appetite!
Collection of 3D Printed Games Fan Art!
This is a replica of the Duke MK. 44 Hand cannon from the latest game created by Bungie and Activision, Destiny, released on the 9th September 2014. Available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Create your own bob-omb themed tissue dispenser! The ready-to-print models of the eyes and feet are made to fit this off-the-shelf tissue box perfectly. For added fun, check out the instructions for how to bob-omb-ify other objects around the house / shop. (read more)
This new version more closely matches the character shapes of the original arcade game. It also includes the player cannon, barrier, and missles. (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!
