New Guide: 3d Printed Glowing Scale Armor

3d printed mesh armor

Check out the latest tutorial from Erin St. Blaine: design and create 3d printed mesh “armor” and make it glow! From the guide:

Design and create glowing scales in your favorite shape and add NeoPixel strand lights inside for a stunning display of animated lights.

These are so easy to add to any costume or design. This guide shows you how to create your design in TinkerCad, a free online 3D design program. You can print your armor at home or use an online printing service. Hot-glue a strand of NeoPixels inside and control your project with a Gemma M0 or microcontroller of your choice.

The guide includes sample designs using a heart shape, as well as a mermaid scale shape, and instructions on how to create your own design in the shape of your choice. It also includes a 3d printable enclosure design for your Gemma M0 and battery.
