Super pumped on how the first Xmas light bulb print came out. Tested a 5mm LED & the fit and light diffusion is beyond festive. The twisty base for the bulb is printing now. Planning for a whole string of these in a bunch of colors 🤩
I modeled and printed a giant Santa head ornament with a cut out in the back for electronics; specifically a Gemma board with a button and small speaker to play chiptune Xmas songs. This was my first time modeling a more sculpture-esque print so it was definitely an experience and I learned a lot for next time.
This is the circuit for the Santa ornament 🎅🏻 was originally going to use a Trinket but for a variety of reasons I changed to a Gemma 💎 hope to film the video tonight & have it up Xmas eve eve or Xmas eve 🎄
As far as holidays go, Christmas is certainly chill but Hanukkah is lit (so sorry)! Bring some color to your eight crazy nights by building a Trinket-powered NeoPixel menorah. Each light can be individually controlled with a power switch to properly celebrate each night.
scaled the model to 50% in Cura and was able to fit 11 on the Monoprice
Mini Delta’s build plate. There was a little stringing, but nothing
that wasn’t able to be fixed with some snips. Model also prints great at
full size too.
I’m just getting into 3D printing and as a result
timelapses. Please let me know in the comments if you want to see more
of these quick videos of prints going forward.
