Bulbasaur Coin Bank #3DPrinting #3DThursday

B19876b5af0245e318c84fa5cdfdad6f preview featured

Pokemon themed prints are all the rage right now. Speakboylese shared this project on Thingiverse!

A “piggy” bank version of the low-poly Bulbasaur. I hollowed out FLOWALISTIK’s model and added a coin slot on top and a hole on the bottom for dumping the coins out. The second file is for a flat plug to fit in the hole. It should snap in and pry out easily, but there’s a small slot on the edge of the opening where you can insert something to help pry it out if it gets stuck.

This little guy should hold a good amount of change. I actually didn’t have enough change on hand to fill him up!

You can position the plug to print between his front paws/under his chin, since the design doesn’t require any supports there and it will print cleanly.

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!
