This model will be going to Andy from Futurama Shopuk (https://twitter.com/Futurama_shopuk). We’ve been talking back and forth for quite a bit and we decided on Crushinator. Big thanks to Andy for all the help and feedback.

I created this model in Fusion 360. I used sketches to get the main body shape there. Then I just went through, extruded the details out and adjusted the shapes until everything look correct.

After splitting up the pieces to make them print easier, I used Simplify3D to slice them, then printed them out on my Creality CR-10 3D printer using Hatchbox PLA.

Then my wife sanded and primed it. She used her airbrush to paint the pink colors on, then used paintbrushes and acrylic paints to paint everything else. Then we just super glued it together.

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!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
