Been experimenting with milled acrylic inlay. I CNC the acrylic parts, use acrylic weld to attach the parts (I used a lot), let it dry then sand up to 400 grit, and finally polish with wax on a buffing wheel. The parts came out pretty seamless and the waxing wheel knocks all of the hard edges off. I really like the look and feel of this process.
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.
