Here is my LED version of Cricket Phaser I designed before. One part is printed in RED HD_GLASS (see stl file name), one is printed in BLACK PLA, one in CLEAR PLA and rest you can paint in any colour and/or paint it after.
Inside there is a space for 4 LED (connected in series), 3 x White LED for the transparent red part and one Green LED for clear part. All is powered by 12V battery (A23) in holder and switched by a push button (Rapid part no 78-0055).
This model requires a bit of patience to put together, but I’m really happy with my little cute cricket phaser 😀
Please note that all the parts fit perfectly in the Fusion 360, but as you probably know it’s not necessary the case in real life printing. I would recommend to scale red transparent and clear part by 99-98% but it all depends on how good is your printer calibrated.
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!
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.
