Turtle GFX Bluefruit

3D print and program your own turtle graphics turtle with CircuitPython! Use the TFT Gizmo and Circuit Playground Bluefruit to display graphics and images.

This project uses the Turtle Graphics library for Adafruit’s CircuitPython. This was inspired by the Logo programming language. With CircuitPython, you can program your own turtle graphics and display them on Adafruit’s TFT Gizmo.

Fridge Magnet

The case is 3D printed and designed to house the components. The parts were designed to snap fit so the assembly is pretty easy to put together.

It’s got little neodymium magnets on the bottom of the flippers. You can stick it to your refrigerator or any metal surface. 

TFT Gizmo

The TFT Gizmo is specifically designed to work with the Circuit Playground Express and Circuit Playground Bluefruit. The TFT Gizmo features a 240x240 IPS screen for displaying graphics and images. The two boards are bolted together using included hardware.
