I got to say this was not an easy project to do. For the blades my printer was way too small so I used my laser cutter to cut out the blades. Because my printer was not 12 x 12. I had to spliced the 3d files. Using clear acrylic giving the shield a really nice look and it help keep all the parts together. I used #4-40x 1/2 in machine screws to put everything together. I want to upload my files I made for this print but thingverse wont let me upload my STL and Ai files

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!
