I built this skull in 3ds Max. I wanted one small enough to use as a charm/necklace piece for my daughter (Halloween/Dia de los Muertos). The hole in back will fit a small battery-powered LED light (pack of 25 for about $10 on amazon).
Looks great with a light, or without… I used simple craft acrylic paints, then a coat of gloss varnish.
Please share pics if you make any, especially if you paint or make a necklace/craft project using this… i’d love to see it!
*tips are appreciated.
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!
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.
