I’m an illustrator and Art Director working in London. I’ve dabble in using 3D printers at work, but only to run out simple models.

This is my first serious attempt at making a custom 3D model kit. It took several months and a lot of learning!

I created the 3D model using AutoDesk 123D – which is a fantastic program to start learning how to create a 3D model. With its simple tools I was able to make everything you see.


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!
