NirDobovizki shared this print on Thingiverse

This is the big brother of my 10 minutes robot, I wanted to make a keychain robot with a clasp embedded into it’s head.

The end result is very nice but just a little too big to be a pocketable keychain.

I had to use supports or a brim with this model because the shoulders have a tiny buildplate connection area and wouldn’t print without something holding them.

I printed in PLA, with support, 0.2mm layer height, 1.2mm shell, no infill.

The clasp is a “Lobster Swivel Clasps for Key Ring 37x16mm” from AliExpress, to insert it into the robot you need to stop the print at height 5.2mm (I used Cura’s “Pause at height” plugin) insert the clasp making sure the ring isn’t higher then the printed part and resume the print.

Designed with SketchUp, STL cleaned with Microsoft 3D Builder, sliced with Cura and printed on my Robo3D R1+ (I’ve added a “RepRap Discount Full Graphic Smart Controller” to my printer, pausing and resuming won’t work on a stock Robo3D R1+ because you need on-printer controls to resume)

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!


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.
