#3D Thursday – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – 3D Printed T-Phone Case

2015-02-16 09.51.55

After receiving some awesome TMNT Legos for my birthday, I decided to watch a few of the new Nickelodeon TMNT episodes. Donatello creates a cool new version of the Turtle Communicator called the T-Phone (a play on the iPhone). I thought man wouldn’t it be cool to have one that actually functioned as something other than just a toy. Using 123d Design and some great tips from the Ruiz brothers on #3DThursday, I modeled first the Nokia 520 cell phone into the program. Once I had that I built sketches around the initial sketch of the phone and extruded what would be the shell piece. After subtracting necessary features and facets, the case was ready to be split in two in MeshMixer and printed on my Printrbot Simple Metal. The print took about 5 hours total but came out great. It was then primed and painted. All in all it’s a fun project especially if you have young fans of the show.

The Nokia 520 can be purchased off contract from AT&T as a go phone for ~$39.99 at amazon. The Windows phone os has most of the major media apps and games, so Angry Birds and Spotify aren’t a problem! The link to the model on Thingiverse is below.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
