In an incredibly fascinating approach to any type of education, but centering around one that’s already popular with kids of all ages, older students practice what they call a ‘cascading approach.’ They learn about 3D printing comprehensively first by building out their own Printrbot 3D printers. Obviously, there’s no better way to learn than by actually making their own machines. After that, they learn to use and control the Printrbots with Simplify3D Software.

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!
