Italian company Maison 203 creates jewels of a radically different type—but still in the ultimate contemporary category—for their successful My Best Friend collection. Riffing on the traditional adage about what a girl values, My Best Friend diamonds are printed in 3D in 100% nylon. The process allows for delicate, flexible and resilient lace-like compositions and jumbo jewels in bright colors, with each item printed all in one piece with no fixation, sticking or other joint. The use of 3D printing technology promises great breakthroughs in fashion and jewelry in particular.
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!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.
