A Guiro is a popular Latin-American percussion instrument. It is used by scraping a stick along the Guiro’s ridges in order to create a ratcheting-like sound. Typically they are made of wood or from a gourd, but since I am a percussionist I figured I would attempt to 3D print one. The outcome of this was great! The 3D printed Guiro sounds just as good as many normal ones.

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!
