This is how I 3D printed an energy sword! Inside are 2 LED strips that are controller with an Adafruit Feather 32u4! Everything is powered off a 2000mAh lipo battery that can be recharged.

Adafruit’s guide to making an energy sword:

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!
