Here are a few more 3DxHalloween projects to inspire you for #ElectronicHalloween!
Trophies for the Site 3 halloween party costume contest by techknight: Every year, Site 3 coLaboratory site3.ca has a halloween party. This year, I whipped up some trophies for the costume contest with my MakerBot Cupcake. (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and a prize for oversized costumes.) I combined Bioluminescence’s Deus Ex candelabra at different sizes to create a base, and used my trusty Plastruct Bondene to weld them to different scales of akaziuna’s vampire skull and Artec’s celtic skull.

Supportless Candy Bowl Skull by cjrussell: This is a remix of MacGyver’s excellent skull print. The upper skull was remixed into a candy bowl for Halloween. The skull prints in 4 pieces that can be assembled, removing the need for any supports to be printed. (read more)
LED Skull Lantern by Festus440: Just in time for Halloween! This little lantern uses an inexpensive battery operated LED “Tea Light” candle that can be purchased at most craft stores or on-line. (I paid $1.99 for one at the local craft store.) The tea light is mounted upside down in the top of the lantern. The handle is optional. You don’t need if you aren’t going to hang the lantern.

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!
