Nobody’s perfect, not even snowflakes.
These six organic snowflake designs were procedurally generated with code in a way that mimics the way that actual snowflakes form as they fall to earth through changing temperature and atmospheric conditions. The code includes random “wiggles” that introduce imperfections into the structure of the flake, creating a stylized, organic form.
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!
