Makerfair 2015 – Miniaturizing #3dprinters

We caught up with James Carpino at World MakerFaire 2015, who made what may be the world’s smallest 3D Printer.

My booth, entitled Inner Workings of 3D Printers, will host a variety of exhibits showing how 3D printers work. I started making 3D printers smaller as a hobby in 2012, and my first fully working miniature was the miniature Printrbot Simple. I’ll be in the 3D Printer Village under a tent in Zone 2. Look for me and my miniatures there!

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!
