I tried some NuteCase, but nobody really convinced me. Either I had to do a lot of rework or they started to slack right after printing. It could also be that I tried the wrong ones, in any case I decided to create a new NuteCase for geocaching. Here is the result!
The two outer nuts (hpMutter3.stl) are tightly glued, the code which only appears on one nut should point to the 60° leg of the garment. The other two nuts (hpMutter1.stl and hpMutter2.stl) are pushed onto the two threaded parts. Do not screw! These two nuts have a code that appears only once on each nut. If these codes are brought into line with the two outer nuts, the threaded legs can be moved.
The two dummy screws on the sides of the container are especially designed for geocaching. They show correction values, coded with Roman numerals, for an alternative coordinate separated to the east and north. In the listing you can have the geocacher calculate an alternative coordinate in case it cannot open the container. These two dummy screws are also firmly glued.
So that the geocaching container can be adapted to your own needs, I have included the OpenScad file.
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!
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.
