“Ping Pong Popper” (named by our nieces, nephews and grandkids) is an easy to make 3D printed toy for the young ones (and some old ones) in our family, and they all love it!

Just two 3D printed parts, a spring, some string and a ping pong ball saves the grandparents / aunt / uncle (my wife and I) around $25.00 USD for a trip to the local indoor pizza parlor / arcade in an attempt to win one of these. And if we do win one, well, they’re broken within an hour. Now I just print another (the green Ping Pong Popper is for my youngest grandson Gabe)!

As usual, I probably forgot a file or two or who knows what else, so if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to point them out as I do make mistakes in plenty.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
