A quick and dirty edit of MegaWillBot’s spider pumpkin to allow for the installation of LED lighting. The pumpkin section of the head has also been separated to allow for printing in a separate material.
Note that this is at 150% scale! You’ll need to scale the remaining parts from the original design to match this. This will also affect the tolerances of the ball joints, so if you don’t plan on glueing them like I did, you’ll want to adjust your scaling or XY offset on the legs to compensate. Also, as you might expect, all the wires inside make it more or less impossible to actually fold this thing up, so treat it as more of a display item than a toy.
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.
