An Introduction to Bondo for Designers and Modelmakers
The many applications for polyester resin and body filler via Core77
When it comes to making models, few materials are as diverse (and yes, smell as bad) as Bondo. It sets up quickly, can easily be machined and shaped and sticks to just about anything.
Here industrial designer Eric Strebel kicks off his series on Bondo’s basics, demonstrating how he mixes, tints and molds it, what it can (and can’t) be applied to, and how he does it. There’s also some good backstory on the stuff.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
