William Bartley shared his handy 3D Printed Enclosure for the Adafruit Mini Lipo
w/Mini-B USB Jack – USB LiIon/LiPoly charger. Thanks for sending this in!
I designed a little enclosure for the Adafruit Mini Lipo w/Mini-B USB Jack – USB LiIon/LiPoly charger that I thought I’d share. We use the Adafruit lipo batteries to power the Gemmas used in her wearable projects. Now that she’s working on a wearable to sell to a friend, I figured a simple enclosure for the charger would be nice instead of just handing them an exposed board (commoners seem to be afraid of exposed electronics).
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!
