So you have this great idea about an electronics project. You're not exactly sure what circuit you're going to use, so you need to make some prototypes. What better way to do this than with an Arduino and a breadboard? In this tutorial, I will show you how to easily add electronics to your 3D model prototype using an Arduino Uno and a breadboard. Let's get started.
Step 1: Your 3D Model
Create a 3D Model of your idea The first step in prototyping your project with 3D printing is the 3D model. If you already have a model, skip this step. If you don't, you'll need to create one. I recommend using Autodesk 123D Design, but any 3D modeling software should work. The software will take some time to get the hang of, but it is much easier than some others. My idea was to create a retro skull with flashing led eyes (I didn't model this, just downloaded it from thingiverse here).
