Smooth Ring Staights #3DPrinting #3DThursday

from Smooth Ring Staights #3DPrinting #3DThursday
by Jessie Mae
Dbakardj shared this project on Thingiverse!So this was made using Supinemonkey’s mods, but I also modded the original rings so that they could be glued. Each piece is flat so that there is no need for support. The flat pieces make it sooo much more smooth and quiet. The pictures include what the original straight pieces on the rings look like (all jagged) and the smooth pieces to compare. The rings also have markers on them so you know exactly where to glue. Used 3d gloop to glue them quickly with lots of strength. The straight pieces are universal for all pieces except the middle (obviously). You need to print 22 pieces. Also, I learned if you increased the infil or parameters, it would be better because the added weight helps make it stay on the cam and not get stuck.Enjoy!See more!

Does the world need another Keyblade? This Keyblade is designed to be an easy-to-build kit with parts that screw fit together. No support material is required! 3D print and build your own Kingdom Key!Download files in learn guide:
https://learn.adafruit.com/kingdom-key-keybladeUse a brim where necessary. First, print out the tester-tube.stl twice and see how well they screw together – Adjust slice settings as necessary.Need to change the diameter of the screw? How about using different heat set inserts? The parts are setup with user parameters, so it’s easy to change a value and automatically update the features in CAD. Tolerances use a “gap” to give clearance between mating surfaces – slight adjustments make big differences.The fusion 360 source file is included and features original sketches and feature timeline along with easily editable user parameters. The parts can further be separated into small pieces for fitting on p…

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!
