This is a wall mounted hexagonal piece of art which you can 3d print yourself! The base hexagons are 90mm across at their longest point (about 3.5 inches). They can connect together with a sort-of snap-fit mechanism. Truth be told, they rely just as much on friction as they do on snapping. Getting them to connect with breaking the pieces can be challenging, so use care when assembling.

The lights are just a strand of NeoPixel LEDs. but any kind of light strand should work. The base hexagons have rails between each one so you can run hidden wires between nodes.

I have not yet solved how to mount this to a wall. But that’s coming soon.

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!
