I’m teaching myself to code 3D in OpenSCAD, so I thought I would add the basic 3D text on a cube function that’s in the OpenSCAD examples so that studless blank block tops can become fun LETTERS, NUMBERS and SYMBOLS!

I printed a couple un-remixed standard bricks and noticed that they are too hard to assemble, so I have tweaked the stud design by adding a sloped area to ease alignment, shown in green in the preview.

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!
