I designed this simple black widow spider headband using basic shapes in Tinkercad. It is printed in Clear, Black, and Red TPU flexible filament with color changes between layers (not between objects in the design).
It was designed to fit 1/4″ elastic in order to complete the headband.
There is a hole in the body of the spider under the red hourglass to allow the red to show. As shown in pictures, the transparent red filament doesn’t show well enough unless you have that hole underneath.
It was designed to be as big as possible and still fit on my printer bed. Could easily be updated to be a bit smaller. https://www.tinkercad.com/things/5uR2kcvJ3sn-spider-headband-flexible

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.
