3D Community Spotlight – Emmett Lalish’s Design for 3D Printing Videos for Microsoft (VIDEOS) #3DxEducation #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Emmett Lalish shared a number of videos he put together at Microsoft as a resource for learning more about how he designs objects for 3D printing. (NOTE: He did warn that the 3D Builder videos are out of date and will be updated soon. )
Are you interested in 3D Printing? Emmett Lalish and Kris Iverson from the 3D Printing Team (part of the Operating Systems Group at Microsoft) will take you through the essentials of 3D printing. We will explore 3D printer hardware and the print process and then examine the software that enables you to create, modify, and print 3D models. You will also get some insights into 3D scanning technologies and what is coming up in the world of 3D printing.
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!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
