I built the first doodle clock http://hackaday.com/2012/03/14/robotic-doodle-clock/ 3 years ago as a joke. But to watch the clock work was so mesmerizing that i wanted it to be a practical desk clock. The biggest problem with the first clock was the drying up of the markers after just 30 minutes of working. So the solution to that i found was the magnetic writing boards http://www.walmart.com/ip/Fisher-Price-Doodle-Pro-Basic-Purple/26012794 made for children. I used 2mm cylindrical magnets inside a solenoid to write and erase the text. Next i replaced the servos with small geared steppers to make the clock very silent and smoother. And finally all parts were designed and 3d printed . I also got the final pcb manufactured .
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!
