MakerBeck shared this project on Thingiverse!

It took the original elegant design and redrew it in my CAD (ANSYS Spaceclaim Engineer). It is pretty much identical in look except for the grips which I did not redo the pyramid shaped ones in the original.

The reason I redid it is because I was not successful in printing it despite following the instructions. It looked fine off the printer but the grips broke off as they are attached by a small tab. The main structural difference in this one is the grips have a larger attachment to the top or bottom as required to function.

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!
