…Now, most of us will recognize the one of the most famous plants from the Super Mario Bros. Series, but for those of us who don’t it is basically a plant that pops out of the ground or a pipe and usually spits fireballs at you. Here we’re going to show you how to 3D print one of your own, and make it so that it can shoot at your nearest plumber.
…As you can see, we will be using an arduino in order to program all of this. If you’re not familiar with this, don’t worry, I’ll be giving you the code to paste into it….
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!
