***Edit 8-17-18: Added neck part. This is really intended for static display.Not really intended for a wearable suit as this printed part will probably not be flexible enough to open up enough to get on a persons neck.

These were modeled from scratch using Blender and Autocad. Reference mainly taken from the 3D scans of the Don Post statue by TheHappyOne and photos from TK409 and MrTea’s reference libraries online. I have not printed them. If you do, please provide feedback and post. Wall thickness is mostly 3mm. I increased the thickness around the neck bolt area and the brim on the back piece.

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!
