Jellyfish Chess set! For everyone who saw my chess set and wanted to print one, I will save you some time by posting my STL files here. (FYI- if you like the chess board in the photos, I will be posting those files soon)
Please TIP me if you are happy that I saved you some time. 🙂
These files should print fine without any fancy settings. BUT..If you want to duplicate my results then please read the printer settings notes below.
I like how they look if you pause the print and change the filament so the bell part of the jelly is a different color. I just have a single extruder, so I have to pause and change the filament if I want to use another color.
I am exploring deliberately making drooloops, (I made that word up, droop+loop) and trying to harness the neat shapes you can get.
Please let me know how your prints turn out and post pics. I love seeing other’s experiments and results. Printer settings can change the effect so have fun with this planned chaos!
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.
