Gyro the Dodo – Ultimaker Special #3DPrinting

The original dodecahedral sculpture by Virtox

Probably one of the best examples of the amazing quality you can get out of an Ultimaker 3 dual extrusion printer using PVA water soluble material.

The original dodecahedral kinetic sculpture by Virtox / Stijn van der Linden.
Now available for home printing!
Made of five nested dodecahedra, each one is limited to rotate about it’s own axis.
A most intriguing and mesmerizing object.

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!
