Hackaday IO user shankz made 3D printed Lithophane backstage passes for the Whole Earth Festival. This includes a box to hold and illuminate the laminate.
I’m 3D printing backstage passes using lithophanes. This is a laminate holder I designed for them, a kind of a light box. I built it around the Adafruit Feather 32u4 Bluefruit LE and a 4×8 NeoPixel FeatherWing with a 3.7V 1200mAh Li-Po I built the box in Fusion with cutouts for lithophanes. I made lithos in photoshop using the cutout dimensions. I imported all the files into Cura and constructed the box.
I’m pretty happy with it. It debuts this weekend in Davis, CA.
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.
