Printy Boost: Reimagining a Classic Adafruit Kit


Chris Young designed a couple of enclosures for the line of Adafruit Powerboost boards and shared them on Thingiverse.

Printy Boost: Reimagining a Classic Adafruit Kit

Boost your cell phone or mobile device with this 3-D printed battery and charger

Once upon a time a makers preferred enclosure for an electronic project was the famous Altoids Mint or Gum tin box. These days we 3-D print everything so it’s time to update the Minty Boost with a new version. Updated electronics, newer batteries, and a 3-D printed box and what do you call it? Printy Boost!

Chris Young has frequently appeared on the Adafruit Show & Tell google hangout and has written guides on the Adafruit Learning System.

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!
