I made this little vase based on a tutorial by Adafruit on how to do Voronoi with MeshMixer. I made this to fit my NeoPixel ring / Gemma set that I had already assembled. The ring fits perfectly inside this project and looks great with translucent filament.
Printed on my Printrbot Simple Metal in Translucent PLA on a heated bed. About 6 hours print time for me

PrintrBot Simple Metal 3D Printer
The Printrbot Simple is an exercise in 3D printing minimalism. It includes only what is needed to get started in the world of 3D printing. With the All-metal Printrbot Simple you’ll have a fully-functioning 3D printer that weighs only 12 lbs and fits nicely on your desk!
As of October 17th, 2014 we are shipping the new version of the PrintrBot Simple Kit with the following upgrades:
Auto-Leveling Probe – works with software to calibrate Z axis height
Aluminum handle and spool holder
Aluminum Extruder (direct drive) – 1.75mm Ubis Hot End w/ 0.4mm nozzle
20 tooth, dual flange GT2 aluminum pulleys
PrintrBot Rev F Printrboard with micro-USB connection (cable included) and micro SD card slot for untethered printing
Two free 0.5kgs of PLA Black, White, Silver
Round and round and round they go – smart LED NeoPixels arranged in a circle!
All of our rings are ‘chainable’ – connect the output pin of one to the input pin of another. Use only one microcontroller pin to control as many as you can chain together! Each LED is addressable as the driver chip is inside the LED. Each one has ~18mA constant current drive so the color will be very consistent even if the voltage varies, and no external choke resistors are required making the design slim. Power the whole thing with 5VDC (4-7V works) and you’re ready to rock.
Love FLORA but want a bite-sized version? Look no further, GEMMA is a tiny wearable platform board with a lot of might in a 1″ diameter package. Powered by a Attiny85 and programmable with an Arduino IDE over USB, you’ll be able to realize any wearable project!
We wanted to design a microcontroller board that was small enough to fit into any project, and low cost enough to use without hesitation. Perfect for when you don’t want to give up your Flora and you aren’t willing to take apart the project you worked so hard to design. It’s our lowest-cost sewable controller!
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!
