Staff of Gandalf the White #3DThursday #3DPrinting
If you happen to have defeated the Balrog in the Mines of Moria, and resurrected as a cleaned up version of your formerly shabby, grey self, then this might just be the project for you. Shared by Alter_ on Thingiverse:
I designed it myself, because I wasn’t satisfied with any of the designs out there.
After completing the whole thing I would highly reccomend looking for something like a wooden stick (staff) with a diameter 28 mm and a preferable length, just printing the two top parts and glueing it together. I printed the whole staff and it’s great but there was a lot of post-processing : filler, sanding, filler, sanding, paint. I won’t say it’s not worth it but can definitely be done easier.
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.
