Paper Airplane Machine Gun #3DPrinting #3DThurday

Youtuber user Papierfliegerei uploaded an outstanding 3d printed project earlier this week that made the rounds. Dieter Michael Krone designed and engineered a machine gun that folds plain paper sheets into airplanes and then fire them across the sky. Upcycling the guts of a cordless screwdriver and 3D printed parts, he cleverly created a brilliant project that we think is great showcase amazing product engineering.

A little tinkering from me that shows what you can do with 3D printers today. Most parts of this paper airplane machine gun had printed by fabberhouse.de (the rest of them are to buy via Internet or hardware store). By the way, I use a cordless screwdriver from China for driving.
Eine kleine Bastelei von mir, die zeigt, was man schon heute alles mit 3D-Druckern machen kann. Fast alle Teile dieser Papierflieger-MP wurden von fabberhouse.de gedruckt (der Rest im Internet oder Baumarkt dazugekauft). Als Antrieb verwende ich übrigens einen Akkuschrauber aus China.

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! 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!
