3D printing unborn babies is creepy cool.
As 3D scanning, 3D modeling and of course, 3D printing become more affordable and technically-easier to use, their uses for bringing previously two-dimensional images into the real world as physical objects has been growing at an exponential rate. Recent software such as Smoothie-3D has made this possible as well as 3D printing services that can turn a child’s artwork into a 3D print with just a few simple steps.
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!
