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!

Not that you want to visit the hospital or get a CAT scan anytime soon but if you do, this is something to consider to do with the data created from the scan, using various digital tools that each serve a purpose towards a final goal of non-functional 3D-printed kidneys:

What a CAT scan machine does is take an X-ray while moving the patient (me) and rotating the x-ray aperture (emitter) and corresponding sensors. The procedure took a couple of minutes, and the result was thousands of individual x-ray image “slices” from all different angles. Using clever maths, it’s possible to use those shots from multiple angles to determine the density of whatever is being imaged. In this case, it was my abdomen and kidneys. The darker areas shows are areas that did not absorb much radiation: skin, muscle, fat, etc. The lighter areas are areas that bounced back much of the radiation, namely my organs and bones.

The CT tech’s computer takes all of these individual slices, stitches them together, and creates a 3D model that they can analyze, and view in both 3D and 2D. The 2D slices generally correspond to the 3 planes of the body, Sagittal, Coronal, and Transverse, planes. Through these planes, they can pan back and forth through the body.

NEW PRODUCTS – Lock-sport Pick Sets – Basic and Fancy


Heard about locksport and want to try it for yourself? It’s a fun hobby you can pick up easily (ha!). It’s like a Rubik’s cube but you have to work by feel alone. And all you need to get started is a lock and a pick-set. We recommend kicking off with our beginner transparent padlock, it’s a perfect first lock. Once you’ve gained confidence you can check your local hardware store (or look through your basement/attic?) for other locks to try.

We have two different sets to match your needs and budget! First up, the Basic Set!

3806 quarter ORIG 2018 05

This Basic Lockpick Set is easy on the budget, but has a range good quality picks and wrenches with rubber foam covers. Simple, but effective – you don’t need to spend more!

This set contains two torsion (tension/torque) wrenches and nine lockpicks, including varying hook picks, half-diamond, and a dimple lockpick. They have a nice, grippy handle, so your hold won’t slip while you’re gleefully picking away.

Now for the Fancy Set!


3805 kit ORIG 2018 05

This Fancy Lockpick Set is easy on the eyes, has a wider range of good quality picks and wrenches, and comes in a portable leather pouch in classy Adafruit black. The picks made with a strong yet thin hardened steel, with riveted handles, and have a better ‘touch’ than stamped metal. It’s a lovely, fine set to treat yourself (or an enterprising friend!) to a lock-sport upgrade.

This set contains two torsion (tension/torque) wrenches, one variable tension wrench, and twelve picks, including varying hook picks, half-diamond, L-rake, double-round, and snake.

Watch John Park’s Workshop Intro to Lockpicking video, featuring a gigantic lock, to learn the tricks of the trade. Makerspaces and events often have classes and competitions as well, where you can improve on your techniques.
