Jet another Bird Feeder that came into my mind 🙂 I tried to copy over that image into my computer. It became :
The Light Sky Bird Temple 🙂
This one has a build in lamp. The lamp sits in the feeder part and shins up. The Lamp is actually a RGB LED strip, so it can change colors also. But I like the white light the best myself.
I tried to make the feeder part in such a way that water can easily escape trough an build in channel. Because there is a lamp inside it’s possible to take this one apart for fixing purposes in the future. Some parts are glued, others are bolted together. See pictures.
In the center of the pillars sits a “translucent PET-G printed” cylinder (lamp glass roof.stl) wherein the IR receiver is placed. This way the remote can still be used :-). If you do not have a remote, you can also use this part to place a second lamp 🙂
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
