MegaMan (do-over) (and over again) by cerberus333 #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Today on our weekly live 3D Hangouts, our Community Spotlight features the prolific and playful 3D designer and hobbyist Perry Engel who currently is sharing over 450 designs up on Thingiverse and elsewhere. (Best known online as “cerberus333”.)

One of the tips that Perry shared with us was the importance of sharing versions of your work as you create it. He has received a lot of helpful feedback and been able to track strategies that help him get better and better as a sculptor by sharing work, trying again, and re-sharing. The photo above is a case in point — a MegaMan sculpting project that passed through several iterations before it felt “right” to him as a fun sculpt. And the comments about the eyes etc helped him get this right.

MegaMan (do-over) (and over again):

I was not happy with the first version, eyes too buggy. too tall. I like the look of this one better. added megaMan4 with changes to the eyes as requested!

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 code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
