As a massive Star Trek fan i always loved the look of the warp core from the Enterprise NX-01, So I made one!
It took more then 100 hours of modeling. And over 50 hours of making. And this is the result.
There are files for 2 versions of the core.
The first version is complete for 3D printing while the second version is made for use with a few laser or cnc cut parts.
I also added holes for led’s (RGB if you prefer). These give the model a nice working look. I also recommend to add a 15cm led strip in the middle to light up the side rails.
You can also find a file which contains info on most of the parts, how long it takes to print, how much matterial and the avarage cost.
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!
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.
