Fully 3D printed letter board. The one from the pictures was printed on the BCN3D Sigma R17, but I’ve also added 3 standard photo sizes to make smaller ones using photo frames.
My patrons already have access to the source files in case they want to modify the board’s size and adapt it to their needs.
In this video, I explain the design process and some tips when assembling it: https://youtu.be/R510B8RbNdo
I used Colorfabb nGen (letters and black board) and Colorfabb Woodfill for the frame.
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!
