Elproducts shared this adorable Bender 3D print on Thingiverse!

I upsized the Bender Bust and added some electronics to it.
Its 350 mm tall and I split it in half to print it on my Makerfront in two pieces.
I also made it hollow and added a coin slot at the back.
When a coin is dropped in, the electronics trigger an Adafruit Wave Shield and Bender talks. The mouth lights up when he talks using LEDs.
You can see the full build at my YouTube Channel:

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!
