How Transistors Work Explained with 3D Printing by @ChuckHellebuyck

Chuck Hellebuyck’s latest project showcases how 3D printing can be used to educate and visualize concepts.

Chuck uses a custom 3D printed design to show how Bipolar Transistors work. He explains its two main functions using the 3D print along with some actual circuits using Snap Circuits. If you’ve ever wondered how a Bipolar Transistor (often used in Arduino circuits and Radios) works then check out this video.

If you’re an educator and looking to make your own, you can download Chuck’s design on his Thingiverse page.
