Build a chest mounted cosplay inspired project with a 3D printed Unibeam! In this project, we’ll show you how to use 3D printing and electronics to build the infamous repulsion weapon from Iron Man. This project was built in collaboration with James Bruton from XRobots.
This 3D printed build was made to go inside of James’ Hulkbuster project. The Hulkbuster is a massive Iron Man-inspired suit James is building with 3D printed parts and various other materials. Watch James’ video and checkout his youtube channel for more details on his Hulkbuster project.
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!
