bmacw shared a great DIY quad copper designed specifically for smaller bed printers like the Printrbot Simple Metal.
This project is designed specifically with smaller 3d printers in mind. I made all the parts from my 6×6 Printrbot Simple Metal.
Just need 8 x M4 screws for the folding arms and 8 x m3 for the frame. Everything else locks in with no additional hardware.
To make this simple, the frame is designed to take two 12inch 1/2in booms. Arms will fold perfectly with this setup, and when unfolded, it’s a perfect symmetrical quad for easy tuning.
The gimbal Mount and GoPro case can be found here. It’s quick release and requires not hardware to mount
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!
