Father and Son 3D print table top terrain for Warhammer 40k battles, from 3Ders.org:

…[The father and son team behind 18charlie] have built a lot of terrain from scratch already. ‘Because what the big companies sell are expensive, and what we make ourselves is cooler anyway. We’ve learned a lot, making things ranging from a bizarre transparent jungle, to a crystal laden field, or from a standard bunker to a menacing tomb.’

…And as they explained, it’s very easy to make loads of them using 3D printing. As 3D printing every single piece will take a while (and cost a bit), they instead designed and 3D printed a master mold of the crystals. This was used to cast objects in a common and inexpensive clear casting resin, which is quite easy to manipulate (add some texture!) and paint. However, they have already experimented with plaster as well, which produced some nice results too and left the mold intact.

This 3D printed mold is thus a great way to quickly create a load of cool and diversifiable terrain options to spice up your gaming nights. ‘The possibilities are endless with stackable pieces like this.’ And just imagine what other terrain features you could make with a regular desktop 3D printer….

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.
