This is iteration two and three of my design and this is by far the comfiest. The first design was two separate pieces in PLA with locks on both sides. This proved to be very uncomfortable and would sometimes become back heavy resulting in a choking feeling. Wrapping the PLA in soft material was also of little help.
I realized that a one piece design would be the strongest and least likely to fracture under stress (resulting in sharp edges) so I removed the second lock and printed this in 95A TPU. This makes it wonderfully flexible (it will flex almost flat) and is much more comfortable around the neck, even without a cloth cover.

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!
