Halloween Crow (Animated) #3DThursday #3DPrinting

danman shared this print on Thingiverse!

Please look below to see the video of this in action!

This is my second generation halloween crow, now with an animated head and blinking eyes. It is in 5 pieces that are designed to be sliced and printed in “vase mode”. The crow is about 18″ (45cm) long when assembled. The largest section that you will need to print is about 7.25″ (19cm) tall and about 5″ (13cm) wide. I printed this in black PLA and used hot glue to attach the feet. There is a short section that attaches to the tail so that it can be press-fit to the body. This allows access to the electronics/battery compartment. The controller is an Arduino Uno. The eye holes were created with a drill and the LEDs are press fitted.

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!


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.

  1. That’s a bit creepy. But only a bit. 😉 Interesting in what 3d printing ideas result. Normally you can use that on Halloween, but what about the rest of the year.?
