This is a 3D printed case for a simple, pitch only theremin design known as the “Thierrymin”, named after its designer Thierry Frenkel. The schematic and instructions can be found over at Theremin World at http://www.thereminworld.com/Forums/T/29231/my-new-year-gift-to-tw-a-new-theremin-circuit?Page=0.
I have included Thierry’s schematic on this page, but strongly encourage you to head over to the thread linked above for more assembly and tuning instructions. This is a really simple circuit to assemble, and a lot of fun to play with.
I have also added a small 2W speaker and an LM386 amplifier. I have also included a schematic showing how this amplifier is wired.
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!
