Here is my Doc Brown’s mind reading helmet from ‘Back to the future’. I absolutely love this film and I could find a lot of props for 3D printing but not this helmet, so here it is.

I’m not going to lie to you, it’s not easy project, but for a massive geek and movie fan like me it was totally worth it. On the 3D model all parts fit perfectly, but it’s difficult to put all the parts symmetrically exactly as in the model, so I had to use good old hair dryer technique for couple of connectors. (For those who are new in 3D printing, you can use hair dryer to warm up the plastic part and then reshape it slightly).

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!
