My take on Rose’s Rebel Alliance iris ring from The Last Jedi. I have included materials needed here, but I also did an instructional video on how to make and assemble this:

Please note that the best way to show your appreciation and keep up to date on my latest 3D printing projects is to head over to my YouTube channel and subscribe!

The iris mechanism is based on this design:

I felt this would scale down to a ring size much better than other iris designs. With this design I was able to make the blades much thicker and easier to handle. Assembly is still a little delicate, but the video lays out clear instructions on how to do it.

The only uncommon material needed for this build is M1 x 6mm cheese head screws. I listed my source under in the .pdf (or .xlsx) BOM under “Thing Files”, but hopefully someone can find a better source.

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!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
