Hi guys! This week we’re taking a look at using the threads feature in Autodesk Fusion 360 to create a twist top style enclosure. The threads feature is a great way to easily make cases with a twist top, like those you’d see in water bottles and similar liquid containers.
So in my NeoPixel Headphones project, the top part of the enclosure is a friction fit style cover that actually doesn’t hold up too well after a slight bump (the top easily falls out due to loose tolerances). So this tutorial was an experiment to see how to solve this problem. The results are very promising!

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!
