Sketchup 25mm kit

Paul Gross shared his ingenious 3D Printed Knitting Needle Kit project this week in our Community!

My wife has wanted for along time to use various 25mm knitting needles for her large gauge yarn projects, so this kit was designed to fulfill her many requirements in a very flexible way.

This 25mm knitting needle kit allows many configurations, including standard needle, circular needles, both double and single ended, and broomstick lace needle.

The individual segments are attached using either a male or female thread, plus a grub-screw for changing the female into a male screw.

This design was published (non-commercial) on youmagine for anyone to print for themselves.(read more)


Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog

This week on the blog, we featured Andrew’s incredible DIY Floating Hackerspace project.

I just finished documenting a project I led in May creating a
floating, art and science laboratory from the ground up. It’s set up to help
monitor an endangered coral reef off the shore of a small fishing community
too poor to really protect it well themselves. The lab was designed to give
ownership of this natural resource to the community while providing a space
for education about designing sensors, electronics, and programming. It
currently hosts workshops that draw motivated folks from around the island
to come, clean up the sea, and build new tech to monitor the environmental
health of the region. (read more)
