DIY Emoji Keyboard

Liz (BlizCityDIY) wanted a better way to type and send emojis, so she came up with a Circuit Python project that uses the NeoKey 1×4 QT and QT Py RP2040. The code is well documented and the guide features a code walkthrough. Since it’s CircuitPython, it’s super easy to adapt and customize to work with your hardware set up. Bonus, there’s a macOS and Windows version. Check it out! Learn Guide - https://learn.adafruit.com/neokey-emoji-keyboard/ Code on GitHub https://github...

Fusion 360 Tutorial – Layer by Layer – Sweeping Snap Fits

In this tutorial we'll take a look at using the sweep feature to create snap fit enclosures. I walk through sketching out snap fit geometry and trouble shoot some oddities with using chain selections in a path. The kitty paw enclosure required some clearance to accommodate for the QT Py RP2040 micro-controller so each side has specific snap fits.

Layer by Layer – Symmetrical Splines in Fusion 360

In this tutorial I walk through creating a curvy rectangular shape using the spline tool in Fusion 360. I show how to use symmetrical and equal sketch constraints to create a shape thats flexible and parametric. Whenever one side of the shape is effect, the other side is perfectly mirrored. One corner of the shape features a bezier handle with a sketch dimension (length and angle) making it easy to adjust a single corner and automatically update the other three...
