This is a special pot where the ferilizer can be tied.

I usually use osmocote as a fertilizer, since it allows me to have the plant for 6 months with fertilizer.

The jar comes with a space to tie the jar to the plant.

this type of procedure is used especially with orchids

the best thing is you dont need supports

Plase if you made and use please put a photo, and put like.

thanks a lot

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!

John Park’s Workshop — LIVE! TODAY! 6/21/18 @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit


JOHN PARK’S WORKSHOP — LIVE! Coming up at 4pm ET / 1pm PT Today LIVE TEXT CHAT IS HERE in the Adafruit Discord chat!

Today’s project: Owl Robot!

The live video will be on Youtube LIVE, Twitch, Periscope (Twitter) and Facebook.

Join maker John Park in his workshop each week as he builds, hacks, and mods projects live on air! “John Park’s Workshop — LIVE” is the place to see creative projects come to life, as John uses a wide variety of tools and techniques to make everything from mystery boxes to pinball controllers to drink robots, using digital fabrication, hand and power tools, microcontrollers, and more. Come on into the chat to participate in the fun! Every Thursday @ 4pm ET/1pm PT!

Simple Camera Slider Adds a Dimension or Two to Your Shots

Camera sliders are a popular build, and properly executed they can make for impressive shots for both time-lapse sequences or real-time action. But they seem best suited for long shots, as dollying a camera in a straight line just moves subjects close to the camera through the frame.

This slider with both pan and tilt axes can make moving close-ups a lot easier. With his extremely detailed build log, [Dejan Nedalkovski] shows how he went about building his with only the simplest of materials and tools. The linear rail is simply a couple of pieces of copper pipe supported by an MDF frame. The camera trolley rides the rails on common skateboard bearings and is driven by a NEMA-17 stepper, as are the pan and tilt axes. [Dejan] also provided a barn-door style pivot to tilt the camera relative to the rails, allowing the camera to slide up and down an inclined plane for really interesting shots. The controller uses an Arduino and a joystick to drive the camera manually, or the rig can be programmed to move smoothly between preset points.

This is a step beyond a simple slider and feels a little more like full-blown motion control. We’ve got a feeling some pretty dramatic shots would be possible with such a rig, and the fact that it’s a simple build is just icing on the cake.

40mm LED Lamp #3DThursday #3DPrinting

A 3mm LED? Or 5 mm LED? No, a 40mm LED!

Introducing a functional LED lamp, in a shape of an LED.

Assembly of this lamp is easy: simply print all parts and stack up the parts in order.
The Lens Base is designed so that an LED module of some kind can be attached in one way or another: refer to the mage for installation ideas.
The Base is designed as the battery compartment, which can hold a 2x AA case. The Base also has installation space for a Slide Switch. Refer to the image for installation options.
The Leads are designed to be hollow in the inside to act as wiring passage connecting the batteries and the LED module. Be careful in which order you solder the wires!

NEW GUIDE: Sparky Automaton using CRICKIT & Circuit Playground Express #Adafruit #CRICKIT #MakeRobotFriend


This new guide takes you through the process of building a Sparky the Blue Smoke Monster robot friend! He’ll be there when you put the chip in backwards, swap power and ground, or forget the decoupling cap. You might be a little crestfallen when you let the blue smoke out of your chips, but at least you have someone by your side.

This project shows you how to build a talking automaton using cardboard, popsicle sticks and some other household materials, paired with Adafruit’s CRICKIT for Circuit Playground Express and a micro servo motor.

This guide also demonstrates how to play audio clips through a speaker using CircuitPython and Mu.

Check out the Sparky Automaton on Youtube to see it in action!
