New Project! Simple LED Unicorn Horn #3DPrinting #Halloween2016

Ah, yes. It’s that time of the season where Unicorns start lurking. As the maker holiday, Halloween, approaches we thought we’d start planning projects before October. With the end of September just about a week away, it could already be too late to start working on a BIG project. Ideally we should plan in the beginning of September. But, depending on how fast or devoted one is to take on a big project, four weeks before Halloween, here’s a quick and easy project that will take about an hour.

This unicorn horn is a remix from last years version. I designed it in Fusion 360 as an exercise to see if I could use the sculpt tools to make a tapered spiral using a coil. In my Layer by Layer tutorial, I walk through building this style of unicorn horn and show how it’s possible to print it using a dual extruder. I think of this as a Prequel to the original because instead of using a micro controller and NeoPixel LEDs, it’s simply an LED, JST breakout and a small lipo battery. I think it’s a good project for anyone who is completely new to electronics and just wants a quick and dirty 101 project.

So, if you are interested in making this project, or think it’s something that’s great for a noobie, Check out the tutorial and STLs.
