Grass Man


Van Alles Wat shared a really fun project on Thingiverse.

So, the idea was to make a 3D printed ‘minion’-like silly green figure coated with grass particles (the stuff they use to make landscapes for miniature train sets).

The 3D model was made in Blender using a few simple shapes, the eyes, teeth and tongue were later added and ‘boolean-cut’ from the body.

A nice thing about this technique that it masks ugly prints and rough layer thicknesses! 🙂

The process goes as follows, you spray the model, cover it with the particles, shake off any particles that are not stuck on the model and repeat the process until you are happy with the result. Once satisfied, finish with a good spray of the cement to make the particle finish more durable….

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!
