3DxGames – Collection of Printed Games Fan Art #3DxGames #3DThursday #3DPrinting
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!
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. This model is a mechanical replica with the reload action similar to the video below. This creates a better user experience especially when it comes to using this weapon as a prop or cosplay item.

This project will cover detailed instructions and commentary around all three sizes of the 3D printable Halo 4 Master Chief helmet. I started this project to learn my way around Autodesk Fusion 360 for modelling ( free for hobbyist use ) and my Replicator 2…. (read more)
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!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
