Bakufreak shared this project on Thingiverse!

Use 3-4 perimiters and top/bottom layers to make the hinges nice and strong.

Tolerance between each part is 0.3 mm, which works beautifully on my printer and hopefully yours too. I experimented with tolerances of 0.2 mm and 0.4 mm as well, 0.3 was the sweet spot: not too tight and squeaky, yet not too floppy.

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!
