Open Source Window Cleaning

This is a work in progress and have not been tested thoroughly in the field yet. Here are my first impressions using it as a alternative to a regular WFP. One thing I did not think about when working like this; you are so much closer to the window, and thus you get wet from the water splashing back at you, especially when scrubbing. The bristles on this car brush seems a bit too soft, as they don’t scrub away very much grime. Though this was a first clean so they were rather dirty. The long handle on this particular brush makes it difficult to get a lot of pressure on the head for some reason, I might build a brush with a shorter handle next time. The top nozzle could benefit from sitting higher on the brush as you have to angle the brush a bit awkwardly.
I’d rather have a wider brush head for this kind of job.

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!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
