Organize projects with modular Lego base plates for QT Py! These 3d printed holders feature built-in standoffs for press fitting the PCBs.
In this project, we’ll make a Lego base plate to fit with all of our STEMMA boards. We designed several different sizes to to fit all of our boards!
The QT Py is perfect for embedding into small spaces, like Lego buildings!
We used small PicoBlade 3 pin cables to wire our even smaller Ultra skinny Neopixel strips. These strip have a 4mm width, yet surprisingly flexible and can fit just about anywhere!
The Ultra skinny neopixel strip is made of flexible PCB material, with some tape on the back making it easy to adhere to most surfaces!
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!
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.
