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!

3D-Printed Parts Torture-Tested in Nitro Engine — Briefly

Additive manufacturing has come a long way in a short time, and the parts you can turn out with some high-end 3D-printers rival machined metal in terms of durability. But consumer-grade technology generally lags the good stuff, so there’s no way you can 3D-print internal combustion engine parts on a run of the mill printer yet, right?

As it turns out, you can at least 3D-print connecting rods, if both the engine and your expectations are scaled appropriately. [JohnnyQ90] loves his miniature nitro engines, which we’ve seen him use to power both a rotary tool and a hand drill before. So taking apart a perfectly good engine and replacing the aluminum connecting rod with a PETG print was a little surprising. The design process was dead easy with such a simple part, and the print seemed like a reasonable facsimile of the original when laid side-by-side. But there were obvious differences, like the press-fit bronze bearings and oil ports in the crank and wrist ends of the original part, not to mention the even thickness along the plastic part instead of the relief along the shaft in the prototype.

Nonetheless, the rod was fitted into an engine with a clear plastic cover that lets us observe the spinning bits right up to the inevitable moment of failure, which you can see in the video below. To us it looks like failing to neck down the shaft of the rod was probably not a great idea, but the main failure mode was the bearings, or lack thereof. Still, we were surprised how long the part lasted, and we can’t help but wonder how a composite connecting rod would perform.

Still in the mood to see how plastic performs in two-stroke engines? Break out the JB Weld.

Eachine Pro58 Cover #3DThursday #3DPrinting


A16450b4d7835e6368851254a13926ea preview featured

Shared by dlew381 on Thingiverse:

This is a remix of the PRO58 cover that was remixed by Engineer FPV. I moved the SMA antenna holes for better fit. I also removed the arrows because I printed this with clear PLA. This should fit dom v2, v3, HD2, and HD3.

2/12/2018- Added v2 of this cover. Opened up the opening for the thumb wheel a little bit and added and indentation for your thumb. Hopefully this makes it a little bit easier to control the module. I have not printed this version yet so any feedback is welcome. I am on business travel at the moment but I will print it when I get home.

Robot seeing tool – CircuiPython


jhaip/streaming-queue-viz: A tool to tell a more complete story of the making process..

A tool to tell a more complete story of the making process. Code versions, serial log data, and notes are automatically saved and shown across time.

I am prototyping with the Circuit Playground Express microcontroller board. A script runs on my computer to track when a new version of code is sent to the board. Serial log messages from my code are also tracked. These scripts send the data to a web API that saves the data and sends updates to the user interface.

atu shared this project on Thingiverse!

The shaft is a tight fit, I actually ended up tapping the center hole, that works just great !

The design is quite small but I made it so it fits my Tevo Tarantula bed without any issue.
