3DxHalloween – Collection of Giveaways & Knicknacks #ElectronicHalloween #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Today on our weekly live 3D Hangouts we get an early start on the season, celebrating the many ways that 3D printing can be put to use to celebrate your #ElectronicHalloween! The Ruiz Brothers shared a video featuring a number of their projects for you to try. And here are a few more 3DxHalloween projects to whet your appetite!

8bit Zombie by digtem Thingiverse

8bit Zombie by digtem: “I first created the 8bit Zombie for a video game back in 2008. Since then the image has been translated into a variety of formats. Here it is now in 2014 as a 3d print. This is the first in a series of 8bit inspired creatures that I’m thinking about releasing as miniatures for roleplaying and other fantasy tabletop games.” (read more)

Skull with Pointy Teeth PEZ Dispenser Topper by akaziuna Thingiverse

Skull with Pointy Teeth PEZ Dispenser Topper by akaziuna: “I went to Walgreens today and saw glow in the dark PEZ dispenser bodies. I thought, ‘what a great opportunity to make a mashup of my skull and Tony Buser’s PEZ head connector. Plus I can break out the glow in the dark ABS I was saving for Halloween.’ I bought some PEZ dispenser bodies, went home and made a mashup. Then grabbed my glow in the dark ABS and fired up my Replicator. ” (read more)

MakerBat Mood Moon LED Charm by wulfdesign Thingiverse

MakerBat Mood-Moon LED Charm by wulfdesign: “A Makerbat redesign to include a attached moon (or mood) ring around the bat. Great for Halloween Jewelry. Use alone for a quick and easy print or snap into it\’s included moon case. You can turn the bat in it\’s moon case depending on your mood or as a sign that it\’s getting late and time to leave the party (see Sleeping Bat pic). Case should be large enough to put in some of your own jewelry or and small LED light.” (read more)

Parametric Spider Web by Alzibiff Thingiverse

Parametric Spider Web by nicholasclewis: “The OpenSCAD script has some parameters that can be changed to adjust the size and thickness of the web, the number of segments, and the number of webs per segment. The attached STLs show a few examples of how these can vary.” Pictured print by Alzibiff! (read more)

Halloween Bat Fridge Magnet by daviddotshaw Thingiverse

Halloween Bat Fridge Magnet by daviddotshaw: “It’s a small Halloween Fridge Magnet of a Bat. I made it on Google Sketch-up, so here is the Sketch-up file, if you want to change it and the stl file. It has a hole recessed in his back so that you can add a magnet (I used Super Strong Rare-Earth Magnets 10mm x 1mm)” (read more)

Finger by Spfaff1994 Thingiverse

Finger by Spfaff1994: “This is a broken off finger i modeled in Zbrush just for fun because its Halloween soon.” (read more)

Sewable Pumpkin Badge by schlotzz Thingiverse

Sewable Pumpkin Badge by schlotzz: “A plain, faceless pumpkin badge with small holes for sewing it on clothes. The outlines are painted with a permanent marker, but may be printed with a dual extruder setup, too.
The Pumpkin was created with Inkscape as a SVG-file. I exported the two layers as separate DXF-files, which are used in OpenScad for linear extrusion. Maybe you prefer working with the sources…” (read more)

COFFIN by christianharries: “Awesome coffin with lid to store your things inside, maybe let the mummy out at halloween. Great stop to keep whatever you want hidden in.” (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!

Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
