Circuit Playground Ornament Parts

These ornaments are designed to house a single Circuit Playground, battery and slide switch. Covers are designed to screw in and easily swapped. These covers can achieve great illumination if printed in a translucent material.

Ornament Covers for Circuit Playground

From simple to more extravagant, snow flakes could be made by hand drawing, vinyl cutting, or 3d printing. Super gluing these details over the ormanet covers create a masking effect that really brings out the patterns. Try printing them in a dark material to achieve a masking effect. 

Snap Fit Ornaments

These ornaments do not feature any electronics. These snap fit together and feature an insert that spins freely (a la fidget spinner). We've included a number of different inserts to choose from and it's easy to swap them out.

Slice Parts

STL files for 3D printing are oriented to print "as-is" on FDM style machines. Original design source may be downloaded using the links below.

The parts were sliced using CURA using the slice settings below. The parts were 3D printed using PETG filament. 

  • PETG filament 250c extruder
  • 0.2 layer height
  • 10% gyroid infill
  • 60mm/s print speed
  • 60c heated bed

Design Source Files

The project assembly was designed in Fusion 360. This can be downloaded in different formats like STEP, SAT and more. Electronic components like Adafruit's board, displays, connectors and more can be downloaded from our Adafruit CAD parts GitHub Repo.
