I already own some real nixie clocks and so want to have a lixie looking and acting as similar as possible like the nixies.
So, based on Folkers lixie digit, I created digit positions for colons and used an ESP8266 NodeMCU for control to have a webinterface, can retrieve the time over NTP (no separate RTC-module necessary) and to be able to realize a smooth digit change.
Additionally I created connectors to connect the digits and endpieces to let the sides look better.
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!
