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!
Illuminated Skull Ring by mrigsby: “This is an illuminated ring mixed from the clever skull designed by MacGyver.
If you are thinking of a talking skull for Halloween, go back to his files–the upper jaw and lower jaw can be separated.” (read more)
ANONYMOUS MASK (FULL SIZE) by fabiobautista: “This halloween you can be Guy Fawkes, V for Vendetta or a member of Anonymous. Perfect for trick or treating or an evening of hacking. Whichever you prefer.” (read more)
Battle Axe Hairsticks by Zheng3: “No lady should walk the woods unprepared for conflict. This version will last you through a quick jaunt to the Renaissance Faire, but if you really want to wow the wenches or bring the jarls to the yard you’ll want a bronze or gold set from Shapeways.” (read more)
Harry Potter Glasses – with hinges by sivar2311: “I need some harry potter glasses for my 7 years old son. I found some made by Tunell (thanks for that!) – but my son needed live hinges. So i tuned it up with SketchUp.” (read more)
And I, Jack, the Pumpkin King…
That’s right. I AM THE PUMPKIN KING!
And I just can’t wait until next Halloween
‘Cause I’ve got some new ideas that will really make them scream
And by God, I’m really gonna give it all my might!
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!
