This is a garage parking sensor using addressable RGB LED’s to provide feedback to vehicle driver as to approach and final stop (park) position. See video in action at https://youtu.be/J4zKOJkv8Cg.
I designed this around some acrylic 1/2″ diameter half round material that I had on hand (cut to 20-7/16″ long) to use as a lens that also serves to hold dovetail sections together. This can be readily purchased on internet for about $0.66 per foot, however, I have also included a model of a lens that can be printed in segments using clear filament.
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!
