Solar Powered Stereo v2 by robmartin701 #3dthursday

Thing42586

Check out this great solar-powered speaker project from Rob Martin, a complete redesign from the one he shared last December! Thingiverse Thing 42586:

This is continuing the design of the previous stereo with some major design changes. The differences between this model and the last are that this one has a larger (3.4W) solar panel that is on a hinge to better capture the sunlight. Due to size constraints, I decided to take out the phone charger for this model. Using the 6600mA lithium ion battery, you will maximize your music playing times. This stereo LOVES to jam out in the sun but is also happy just chillin on your desk. Enjoy!!!

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!
