So this is my take on an awesome little Whoop gate.

The gate consists of:

  • 1m transparent plastic tube with a 12mm outer diameter and a 9mm inner diameter
  • 1m LED chain with 10 LED’s and a 2xAA battery case
  • This base

Here in Denmark you can build 5 gates for approximately 150 DKK which translates to ~23 USD

ATTENTION! – I have just printed this once (the one in the pictures) and I had my temp set all wrong. I did have to fiddle a bit to clean it up, but with good printer settings you should have no trouble with it. 🙂

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!
