Making Artistic Use of 3D Printing Infill Patterns
I absolute love this idea of using infill structures in 3D printing (the patterned support used inside of objects to provide strength and structure while cutting down on printing time, weight, and filament) as an artistic design.
Here, Joe of Makes’n’Breaks decided to foreground the usually hidden patterns of infill (which are quite lovely) in a series of coasters combining the 3D printed infill structures in a wooden frame. The results are beautiful.
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.
