Angus Deveson from Maker’s Muse started a new trending hashtag on YouTube, #3DPrintingOnYouTube where a maker will answer six questions about 3D printing and themselves. At the end of the video, the maker nominates three other maker’s to do the same.
We think is really interesting because it brings content creators who are passionate about #3DPrinting together. Since Angus’ original video, eight videos have been published (from the time of this posting) and we think it’s spreading like wild fire. It’s also great to hear different perspectives and discover new YouTuber’s who you might not be subscribed too yet.
We’ll continue to share new #3DPrintingOnYouTube videos as maker’s release them, and post them up here on the Adafruit blog.
Here’s a list of this weeks YouTube channels you should subscribe too:
There’s also a playlist we put together on our personal YouTube channel where you can watch them all, or you can simply search for #3DPrintingOnYouTube on, well, YouTube :-).
Big thanks to all the makers who are contributing to the hashtag trend and sharing their experiences and insights, it’s really fun!
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!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
