Lowpoly Heart Shape box on @Thingiverse #3DPrinting #ValentinesDay
This is a simple low polygon heart shaped box. It’s a two piece snap-fit together container that can be used for storing treats, LEDs, components, screws or anything special. It’s just two parameters thick and can be printed in under 15 minutes (depending on your print speed).
This was printed using a single extruder. Different colored filaments are switched during the print job. Using 1 layer for the bottom and 0 layers for the top, you can see through the first layer when it’s printed in translucent filament. The triangles and honeycomb patterns are not drawn in the CAD model but actually generated by the slicing software. You can use different infill percentages to create high or low density patterns.
We chat about the design on the prototyping segment of the 3D Hangouts show on YouTube.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
