Baby Groot in Carbonite

“I am Groot.”
“I know.”

I re-sized the box from the original to fit Groot and repaired a few things in the mesh so it would look and print better.

I got the best results by printing Groot at 45 degrees and adjusting my support angle to match. I also had to use a few supports for the control panels on the main box, mostly to keep the underside from sagging.

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!
