Some folding polyhedra inspired by Make Anything’s Devin Montes. When scaling the models, make sure that you have at least two bottom layers printed otherwise the living hinges might not work. Print, fold, clamp with something(i found aligator clips worked well) and superglue. I paused the print and filled the bowden tube with leftover sections of black filament to get the stripes down. You don’t need much infill in fact I used none in my rhombic dodecahedron and its pretty solid!

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!
