How to Make Rivets with Filament #3DPrinting

Barb Noren of the Barb Makes Things YouTube Channel put together a great video on how to make rivets for joining 3D printed parts using filament. Hot tip, cool channel. Be sure to subscribe to Barb’s YouTube channel for weekly videos every Tuesday!

How To: 3D Printing Filament Rivets

Need to attach 3D printed parts?

Rather than use pins, pre-made rivets, or machine screws, you can make quick and easy plastic rivets with a couple inches of filament from your 3D printer. This is the technique I used to make the scissor mechanism for my 3D printed poking device:

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!
