Tom Global shared on Thingiverse:

Grabber

Team Grabber won the MakerBot Award for Rapid Prototyping at the Bay Area Makeathon for a stick that allows Kim Lathrop, who has no arms, to grab and move objects with her mouth. Lathrop said that she is excited by the possibilities of the Grabber: “This device helps me do things myself, which is a basic human desire. There are so many things I’ll be able to do now, like setting a table for guests.” The Grabber team went through multiple iterations prototyped on a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer and the final 3D design files for the Grabber are available on Thingiverse.

Team members: Kim Lathrop (need knower), Alex Gecht, Noam Platt, Maayan Kahana, Inbal Halperin[BC1]

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!
