New Tutorial! How to Make Unicorn Horn for Dual Extrusion #3DPrinting @BCN3DTech @adskFusion360

Last year I put together a Unicorn Horn in Autodesk Maya, using non-linear deformers. This year, I wanted to challenge myself to design a version using Autodesk Fusion 360. I figured out an interesting method that uses a tapered coil to create 3D sketch geometry for making a loft in the sculpt environment. I learned how to project 3D geometry into a sketch by watching a tutorial by Taylor Stein. I designed it specifically for dual extrusion 3D printing, but it can also be printed with a single color / extruder. I plan to fit a 12x NeoPixel ring into the horn and make a wearable for Halloween.

In this tutorial we’ll make a Unicorn horn in Autodesk Fusion 360. This project utilized the coil feature to create 3D sketch geometry for making a spiral. We’ll use the sculpt environment to create t-spline body’s and create a unicorn horn, ideal for dual extrusion 3D printers.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
