The NeoPixel Gas Mask, as presented by the Ruiz Brothers on the Adafruit web site, wires both LED “data in” ports to the GEMMA’s “data out” port. This means that lighting up “pixel number 1” lights up two pixels: pixel number 1 on the 16 LED ring, and pixel number 1 on the 24 LED ring. Read More
The holder created by the Ruiz Brothers on Adafruit and Thingiverse didn’t quite fit into the respirator portion of our gas mask, and we thought the attachment of the rings was also a little clunky. (But then, we’re relatively new to this whole 3D printing thing… so we’re not saying the Ruiz Brothers messed up… just “it didn’t work for us”.) Read More
GEMMA is flashing rings! Read More
Franklin has embarked on a project of customizing the 3D gas mask with NeoPixel lighting as originally designed by Adafruit. Read More
No posts since July… because we’ve moved from Arizona City (a small unincorporated town of around 10,000 people) to Phoenix (metro area population around 4.3 million). See my personal blog for more details.
But that hasn’t put all of my 3D printing endeavors on hold. I continue to make incremental progress and occasional design changes on Coins-Worth. There is a mostly-assembled version I take “on the road” to show people who ask to see it.
I’m now working with Franklin to produce a custom version of the NeoPixel 3D Gas Mask by Adafruit. There will be several 3D-blog entries for that.
