Pinshape Featured Designs – June 23rd

The Taulman 3D Print Contest ends tomorrow so get your final entries in now! If you ran out of time for this contest, fear not, we’ll be launching another exciting print contest shortly. For those that are more into design than printing, enter the Mechanical Design Contest where you can win a Formlabs Form 2 as the top prize!

Adafruit Gemma and NeoPixel Vex Eye by Pinshape

This week, we’re featuring one of our own designs; the Adafruit Gemma and NeoPixel Vex Eye. This was remixed from an original design by Adrian Tanner and adapted for Arduino Electronics. Learn how to make your own and get a primer on electronics and programming here! 

Boomy The BoomBox by Adafruit

Boomy The BoomBox both looks great and is fully functional. If you’re looking for a more advanced project after the Vex Eye, check out Adafruit’s tutorial to make your own!

Gothic Lantern by Sonia Verdu

This newest design by Sonia Verdu can be printed entirely without support structures! Light it up with an LED or use NeoPixels and a Gemma board for customizable lighting. 

Flower Pot by Desktop Makes 

Desktop Makes’ newest tutorial teaches you how to design your own flower pot in Fusion360. After printing, he used a stone texture spray paint to create this sweet finish! 

Water Motor by JOHLINK

This fully functional Water Motor was designed entirely in Fusion360 by Johan Link and makes for a great assembly project. Attach a pipe and rig up a motor for your own miniature hydroelectric generator! 

The ‘Key’per Key Organizer

This simple print makes for a more efficient key organizer than typical steel loops. An O-ring closes off the end and secures your keys allowing you to easily add or subtract new keys. 

That’s all for this week! Create your own designs and enter into the Mechanical Design Contest to win a Formlabs Form 2!
