The club publicly released the STL files for their BB-8 Droid under a creative commons license so that makers anywhere could 3D print it with confidence. On October 8th 2015, a day now proudly referred to as “October BB-8th”, LucasFilm Ltd. officially recognized the BB-8 Builders Club, and since then their work has been featured on StarWars.com, Tested, and even the Discovery Channel.
The Ultimaker 2 is one of our favorite 3D printers on the market. It’s a well-built open-source compact machine with an excellent UX. Every inch of the Ultimaker 2 is designed to create the most effortless and reliable 3D printing experience ever!
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!
