Pinshape Design For Electronics Contest – Last Chance To Enter! #3DPrinting
There’s just two days left to enter! If you’ve missed our promotions from this past month, now’s the time to read up on the details and get your entry submitted.
TL:DR, Upload a 3D printed design for something with electronics in mind to Pinshape. You could win a 3D printer, filament and $200 smackers in Adafruit Gear! Who doesn’t want that!?
This month’s challenge is to create a design that can be brought to life or used with electronics! You do not need to purchase any electronics to participate, but your design should keep electronics in mind. Entries can include everything from lamp shades, to raspberry pi cases, to light switch covers, and toy cars!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
