John21 shared this project on Thingiverse!

I wanted to try to 3D print a small skateboard that was usable and strong. This is what I came up with, it is just slightly bigger then a penny board, at 23″ (58.5cm) in length. A $15 plastic skateboard was used as a donor for the wheels and trucks. Has angled aluminum running through the inside as supports, as well as 6 pins that hold the joint together. I’m about 170lbs (77kg) and it has supported my weight fine so far. The axles are 17” apart, which means for its small size it is very easy to ride.

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!
