Light up and improved guardian sward shared by bendoerr on Thingiverse:

It really bothered me how the handle and blade were split, additionally part of the masking on the handle was missing. Thankfully the Adafruit team shared the Fusion360 design so I went about resolving it. I can manage in Inventor/Fusion360 but am completely lost every time I open Blender. Lastly, as a software dev I thought the Adafruit pixel code was boring, so I spiced mine up.

If I were to print the sword again, there is a whole lot I’d like to fix. The standoffs are horrible and I ended up using a good amount of super glue. I’d also continue my fixes to hiding the seams, I’d like to hide the middle blade seam under the masking and tweak the upper blade masking so I could also hide that seam under it. When the blade is powered on these things are not noticeable but, I’ve got it mounted on my wall now.

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!

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.
