It’s 8-bit retro Mario Clouds! It’s so tiny and cute, you can wear it! In this project, we’re making Cory Arcangel inspired Super Mario jewelry using 3D printing and DIY electronics.
This teeny 1.44” TFT display comes in at 128×128 and interfaces with the pro trinket micro-controller over SPI using Adafruit Arduino libraries.
3D print the parts from our free files in either PLA or ABS. These parts are optimized to print with no support material and take about an hour to print.
We were inspired by the Gameboy for this design and we printed tiny little buttons printed in a different colored filament.
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!
