Star Locator #3DThursday #3DPrinting

YouMagine Star locater by Aikidoka YouMagine ❓

This looks like a really great print for any amateur astronomers out there. Shared by Aikidoka on YouMagine:

Parts for the star locater

  • Grip
  • Plate with degree scale and hole to determine the position of a star
  • Srew M5
  • Wing nut M5
  • die washer 0.8mm and 0.3mm

You can assemble the star locater optimized for left-hander or right-hander.
Be careful when you read the degree.
The right degree is which line right-angled to the grip.
Place the plate to 90 degree (vertical to the top) and look to the 90 degree
line to become a feeling for the scale.
For example the star locater is placed to 50 degree on the photo.
You can use the star locater to search a star or you can measure the degree between you and the star.

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!
