Walking in a winter wonderland might be a couple months away, but there’s no time like the present to get started on your diorama. Shared by henryarnold on Thingiverse:
I resized the original design to be 1:48 scale so that 3.5″ is equal to a 14 foot high street lamp. This size matches the Dept. 56 Snow Village houses. I increased the size of the hole through the middle so that wires could be fed through.
I’ve just added the same lamp scaled for HO train layouts which is 1:87 instead of the 1:48 of Dept. 56 Snow Village Houses. The lamp parts for HO scale have “HO” in the name. The HO scale lamp design has a hole down the middle that will accept the grain of wheat lamps referenced below.
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.
