Ice Powered Desktop Air Conditioner
Created in both Fusion 360 and Tinkercad. Requires an 80mm case fan and a 12v power supply to power it. I haven’t printed the lid yet but I assembled and tested the fan. The air was coming out of the top so I created it. The tray holds a perfect amount of ice and it will not overflow from the reservoir. With the tray angled towards the front, all the melt water drips away from the fan.
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!
