Rotating 3D Printed Earth Globe

by 3DPrintingGirls

Published on October 5, 2014

This 3D printed earth globe rotates using three bits, two 3D printed littleBits adapters and one 3D printed Earth Globe. I will be using this project to teach and tutor third graders about geography and STEM during after school tutoring at Guadalupe Branch Library where I volunteer.

How To Make It


3D print: a) Servo Base http://www.shapeways.com/model/2714954/servo-base-for-littlebits.html?li=user-profile&materialId=100 b) Planet Earth http://www.shapeways.com/model/2714937/planet-earth-for-littlebits.html?li=user-profile&materialId=100 c) Earth Servo Adapter http://www.shapeways.com/model/2714926/earth-servo-adapter-for-littlebits.html?li=user-profile&materialId=100


Assemble the circuit, first power, then Arduino, and finally the servo.


Modify the servo allowing it to rotate 360 degrees.


Run Arduino Sketch


Run Processing Sketch


Click on the rotate or stop button to make the Earth rotate
