Great tutorial on how to apply Voronoi like patterns onto meshes using Autodesk MeshMixer.
A number of my fellow artists and makers have asked me how I achieve this mesh aesthetic and were surprised to find out that it is quite simple. I use edit > make pattern in Meshmixer, a free program by Autodesk. meshmixer.com/
I’ve used many programs and solutions for light weighting and piping effects (including Within and Grasshopper/Rhino) but this is one of the simplest. Here is a short video on how to do it + some tips.
I’m interested in how to have more control in the patterns and and would enjoy seeing your work and hearing how you lightweight, pipe and mesh your models… please post in comments below or on the instructables page.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
