Commemorate the historic NeXTcube with your own 3d printed version. Shared by RabbitEngineering on Thingiverse.

One of Steve Jobs’ most underrated hits, the NeXTcube – it gained fame among hardcore geeks after being used by Tim Berners-Lee to build the world;s first web server and web browser. It’s a machine to which we all owe a lot.

Pretty simple build – print everything in black, and glue per the pictures. The body_lrf.stl part is one of the ‘little rubber feet’ that hold up the cube itself (print 4 of these). The other little gotcha are the round extensions to the front of the monitor foot. I did them as separate pieces to avoid ugly support cleanup (cleaning up supports on black PLA is always a pain).

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!
