3D Hangouts – Floppy Drives, Etch-a-Sketch and Flexy Fish

This week @adafruit we’re 3D printing cases for floppy drives. Prototyping an etch-a-sketch inspired drawing handheld using 2.4in TFT FeatherWing and CircuitPython. The timelapse this week is a print-in-place articulated fish printed in MatterHackers Quantum PLA filament. Radical!
