Designing a 3D Printed Dashboard Phone Holder #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Barb Makes Things shares a cool design process for making a phone mount for a car in OnShape:
I’ve taken to using Waze lately, but my phone just goes flying all over the dash and none of those commercial holders will work with my car. Alas, alack, what’s a gal to do? Yup, make one.
I’ve got a fair amount of experience with 123D Design, and I teach Tinkercad, but I decided to test the waters and make this in Onshape. (Obviously the process is edited way down)
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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
