Walking in a winter wonderland might be a couple months away, but there’s no time like the present to get started on your diorama. Shared by  henryarnold  on Thingiverse:

I resized the original design to be 1:48 scale so that 3.5″ is equal to a 14 foot high street lamp. This size matches the Dept. 56 Snow Village houses. I increased the size of the hole through the middle so that wires could be fed through.

I’ve just added the same lamp scaled for HO train layouts which is 1:87 instead of the 1:48 of Dept. 56 Snow Village Houses. The lamp parts for HO scale have “HO” in the name. The HO scale lamp design has a hole down the middle that will accept the grain of wheat lamps referenced below.

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!
