This is an LED rocket design I made as Christmas gifts for family. It has an integrated Arduino driving a couple of LEDs and uses an accelerometer to vary the colors of the lights with the direction of “flight”. It also displays a light show when not flown for a few seconds.
The rocket comes in top/bottom and an electronics palette with a 9V battery holder. I typically print the palette with supports within the pocket the Arduino slides into.
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!
