LEO the Maker Prince – Journeys in 3D Printing by Carla Diana

1630 00

LEO the Maker Prince teaches children (both young and old) about 3D printing by following Carla and LEO’s journey through Brooklyn. LEO is a walking, talking robot who has the magical ability to to print (in plastic) any object that Carla draws. The other robots have their own special capabilities: H1-H0 prints in metal, Sinclair-10 can find and print objects from a huge catalog of designs, and the others (including AL1C3-D, IRIS-7, and NiXie) have unique talents, too. Readers can come along for the journey, too: all of the objects in the book are printable one way or another. Pick up a copy here!

Components buzz
From start to finish, it shouldn’t take more than 1/2 hour to 3D print your parts and assemble a Vibro-bug.Small and simple projects… can be great fun! See the parts list and full tutorial here!

 


3D Printed Star Trek Communicator

Making is the final frontier. These are the projects of Adafruit Industries. Its life long mission: to explore strange new projects, to seek out new 3D printed forms and new circuitry, to boldly make what no maker has made before.
Boldly go where no project has gone before with this real working Star Trek Communicator!


PiGRRL Zero
 
Raspberry pi pigrrlzero adabot

In this tutorial we’ll turn the elusive $5 Raspberry Pi Zero into portable game console! The difficulty of this project is low-medium. There is wiring and soldering involved, but no PCB hacking or sawing like our previous builds. We think this is a great project for makers who have a little bit of Pi and 3D printing experience, or are first time makers with a lot of energy and willingness to learn! This tutorial will walk you through all the steps of the assembly and takes about weekend to accomplish.

And more! See all of our 3D printing learn guides and tutorials!
