Arthur Schmitt and Emmanuel Durand developed an amusing “melt deformation” tool: 123DBake:
123DBake is an experiment that uses HTML5 to ‘bake’ 3D files.
The user can choose between a selection of files or upload his own file.
The virtual microwave then ‘bakes’ the 3D file, until the user is happy with the result.
He can then visualize the 3D object and then download the result. (read more)
And Arthur Schmitt shared a bit about the goals for the project:
123DBake is a web-app that lets you ‘bake’ 3D files in a ‘microwave’.
And why would you do that, you ask? Well, why not…
With Manu, we wanted to play with Javascipt and webgl, so we imagined a fun and easy project to start playing with online customisation of 3D files. (read more)
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!
