Community Makes This Week #3DPrinting #Thingiverse
Here’s this weeks community makes. These are photos from people who post them as makes on our Thingiverse projects. Nice variety of projects. Yet another guardian sword make, still amazes me people are making these large builds, so many NeoPixels! A first make of the dual extrused hinged raptor dino – Dual extrusion setups becoming more accessible, it seems – Kudos on the double blue color scheme. The Adafruit logo tree topper is early these year, could be photo from previous years – Use translucent filament for fairy lighting effects. Seeing our 3D printed mini stool in multi-color is great (good example of the hot swap filament technique to achieve multi-color prints with a single extruder), even looks great without the glow of LEDs (Only took 89 hours to print!). Apple watch wrist band is a personal favorite, always nice to see high quality looking prints in flexible materials (Another use of hot swap filaments) – Iguana for scale. The Hylian shield was split into 9 different pieces (2-part originally designed), bonded together and painted (loads of sanding no doubt!) – results are a seamless finish, great post processing here! – Human child for scale.
Thank you kindly to all the makers who take the time to post their photos. Links to all the makes below. Project links can be found in the thingiverse page by clicking on the thumbnails in the source section.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
