3D print your own paracord lanyard #3Dprinting #3Dthursday
Why buy a lanyard when you can print one, thought the author of the FacelessTech blog to themselves after trying to find a lanyard in a very specific color. The design is modified from a Raspberry Pi powered lanyard. All you need is a length of 550 paracord, M3 cap head bolt and the 3D printing file.
This is where this really comes into its own because normally lanyards come in a set length and if you are short or tall you just have to make do. You can make this lanyard the prefect length.

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.
