Can be printed with minimal supports and in white filament. I used a Raise 3D printer and then used a FormLabs for a final draft part but can still be printed normally. Not toleranced so minor sanding may be required after printing. Using transparent green for the Plasma tube and red for the small C-137 part and of course white for the base and cap part. as well for the flash drive I used the SanDisk SDCZ43-016G-A46 model with the black plastic taken off and bent a small amount to fit within the printed part. The built in light on the flash drive lines up with the plasma tube so it really lights up when plugged in! Enjoy my model and thats the waaaay the news goes!

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!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
