by 3DPrintingGirls

Published on October 20, 2014

3D printed 'calaca' (skull) with a 3D printer calaca-servo adapter, some littleBits and you got your perfect skull with LEDs, mouth that opens and closes at the beat of some cool Monster music.

How To Make It

STEP 1

3D Print any skull from thingiverse or any other convenient Halloween prop.

STEP 2

3D Print the Calaca "skull" adapter, this is my original design, you can get it from thingiverse or shapeways. * http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:509610 * https://www.shapeways.com/model/2782741/calaca-holder-adapter-for-littlebits.html?li=aeTabs

STEP 3

Attached LEDs to the skull's eyeballs and the servo to the jaw of the skull

STEP 4

Use a piece of pvc pipe or a CD holder to set your skull and put your bits to work.

STEP 5

Gather any halloween props you have around your house to give your skull a little flair.

STEP 6

As far as programming, I use standardfirmata for Arduino and Minin Minin for Processing.

STEP 7

Connect everything, get ready for a Monster Bash and Happy Halloween!
