I really liked the original wooden sword that I remixed, but I wanted it to be a little more solid. I extruded a hole from the tip all the way to the pommel to accept a 3/4″ dowel rod. I used wood glue for a more permanent assembly, and dots of super glue to help alight things while the wood glue dried.
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!
