We love MakerBot Thingiverse. Thingiverse is a “place for you to share your digital designs with the world,” and what a place it is! There are several innovative and beautiful designs featured, which is why our designers had a difficult time choosing one to remix. Remixing involves re-creating a design and making modifications to create a derivative [...]
The pulse input Bit make projects flicker and beat. Place the pulse before any output Bit to generate a glimmering affect. A mini screwdriver is included with the Bit so that you can control the rate of the pulse. It’s important to keep in mind that the pulse outcome is the result of the rate [...]

In preparation for our trip to Maker Faire Bay Area on May 18th-19th, we created four San Francisco themed projects inspired by the vibrant sprit of the city. To help you re-create these pieces, we have gathered our brightest and flashiest Bits and put them in a web-only bundle at a discounted price. The bundle [...]
The inverter Bit makes every day opposite day because it sends out the opposite of whatever signal it receives. Send it an ON signal, and the inverter changes it to an OFF signal, or vice versa. Try putting it between two lights after a button: clicking will make the LEDs blink back and forth. How [...]
