3D Printed Pocket Braille Finder by @daveyclk

Dave Clarke shared on Pinshape:

Pocket Braille Finder

This is a cool pocket Braille finder that has a neat internal mechanicsm and tactile feel

By turning the wheel, the Braille pins will either lower or raise representing the correct Alpha – Braille Translation

This is truely pocket sized, measuring in at only 70mm x 63mm x 8mm

It has been designed to be carried around for quicke reference, it could also be used by schools to teach the alphabet

I’m currently printing this on my Formlabs Form 2, and this has specifically been designed for SLA printing due to small size and tight tolerances

The Braille on this device follows the standard hole spacing used the world over

If you are going to attempt to FDM print this, you may want to scale it up for better results (your hole spacing wont be correct however)

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!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
