Well, the Ruiz Brothers from over at Adafruit have done it again: made another awesome and fully reproducible project that combines 3D printing and electronics. The make, a 3D printed thermal camera, is the perfect DIY project for this winter weekend.

While a 3D printed thermal camera might sound pretty technical, the Ruiz Brothers have found a way to not only make the project achievable for intermediate makers but to turn something like a thermal camera into an adorable product.

Camera - Design - Reminiscent - Vintage - Box

The colorful 3D printed camera’s design, which is reminiscent of vintage box cameras, will not only be totally functional but will also look pretty darn cute sat on a shelf when not in use.

That being said, the thermal camera component is what makes the project really special. So let’s dive on in.

Make - Handful - Components - Camera - Sensors

For the make, you will need a handful of electronic components, including thermal camera sensors (Adafruit’s AMG8833 sensors are recommended for their compatibility with Arduino), a TFT display, a 500mAh battery, a Feather HUZZAH32, and a few other soldering and connector bits. Oh yeah, and a 3D printer or access to...
