Hot off the extruder and not even for sale yet check out this video of a new flexible 3d printing filament! We have been chosen to beta test the new filament from Fenner Drives flexible division, NinjaTek, code named Cheetah This is the same 3d printing filament that they recently announced at CES. This 3d printer filament is named cheetah, it is a very strong 3d printing material, it is flexible, and it prints beautifully. We are including a 3D printer time lapse of an octopus, an overview, and some attempted destruction. The new red cheetah filament is beautiful and I cannot wait for round 2 of beta testing. Stay tuned to our channel for a chance to win some 3d printed models.
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!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
