In this I Like to Make Stuff video, Bob challenges all of us with 3D printers to think about what fixes and improvements we could make to the interior of our cars. It’s a fun thing to think about.

In Bob’s case, he had a seat adjustment handle that was missing and an out-of-date cupholder. He recreated the handle in Fusion360 and designed and printed a new cupholder that adjusts to the size of the cup.

What things would you like to fix or customized inside of your vehicle?

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE.
