Water Resistant, Dust Proof Utility Box #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Tough little storage box from muddymaker on Thingiverse:
UPDATE 27th February 2022- You can now print the little brother of this box here; https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5265054
UPDATE 25th February 2022- I’ve added the step file for the entire box, dividers etc for anyone that wants to modify or customise the box to suit their own needs. I look forward to seeing what people come up with, good luck.
UPDATE 21st February 2022- Added a lid with holes plus a handle, you’ll need two M3x10mm fasteners.
If you have already printed the lid without the holes you can drill the holes. Hole size will be 3mm and centre to centre measurement is 60mm.
“UPDATE 13th February 2022- Added a seal for you folks that would like to print their own out of TPU. Recommended settings: 0% Infill, 2 perimeters and 2 top and 2 bottom layers. Flat part of the seal is to face the lid.
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!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
