Farell Rozan shared a great 3d printed prop project of a retractable blade from Assassin’s Creed. He designed the parts in Google Sketchup, and used a rubber band and a trigger-release in the mechanism to make the blade retract. Printed braces keep the body frame together while leather straps keep the prop mounted to his arm and wrist.
We have seen our fair share of 3D printed props based on those found within video games. 3D printing has taken czxo9prop making, added precision and complexity, and has allowed for much more realistic pieces to be made. One such piece was recently created by a man named Farell Rozan, based off of one of his favorite games, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
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!
