This is a design for a gumball coin mechanism used for a greeting card. The gumball machine is cut from cardboard and clear plastic. The simulated coin mechanism makes for a realistic gumball machine with twist handle and flap door.

Printed in PLA at 0.1mm layers
200C extruder and 50C bed

Print at least 4 at a time to keep layers from being distorted by excessive time of extruder in one place.

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!
