Design Challenge: MyMiniFactory Halloween Competition #ElectronicHalloween #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Halloween Competition

One of the unique things about this competition — and about MyMiniFactory as a repository site — is that all of the entries will be printed! Free to enter, as well. (Making it a great competition to recommend here.) There are two tracks to choose from, shared below, along with a few examples of pieces from the site.

Curiosity Cabinet

Shrunken head from the Jivaroan tribes of the Amazon? A replica of Walter Potters incredible Victorian taxidermeys? 3D model an interesting and strange curiosity to go in the MyMiniFactory cabinet. Printability is as vital as intrigue, please read the ‘designing for 3D printing’ guide to give you some pointers.

Curiosity cabinet artifacts don’t have to be the dark and the macabre however, precious and rare objects also make for fantastic show pieces. Priceless jewellery pieces, weapons from unknown warriors, and ceramics from lost dynasties all welcome.

Halloween Prop

Create an awesome Halloween costume prop. Something super scary and 100% printable. Zombie brain hat? Wearable witch nose? Let your imagination go wild!

We have created a blank mask template which can be downloaded and then modified in your software of choice, but also feel free to create a design from scratch. Check out our props and costume section if you need some inspiration.

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!

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, 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.

Join 35,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community!

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
