So that's the reason the circuit boards in Star Trek looked like that, they were 3d printed!

In all seriousness this seems really cool for teaching, keep it up!

ProtoPasta makes a conductive graphite filament.

This is incredibly cool and potentially game changing. Keep it up!

Why would anyone support you on Etsy when nearly all the things you are selling on there are other people's designs with a few little modifications? you make me sick.

I second the motion.

Could I use wire instead of conductive string, like some kind of wrapping wire?

Hm, you might be able to. I actually just bought some solid core exposed 24 gauge copper wire for the next iteration of this. I imagine it will work fine for just about everything --- the slide switch is the only component that really requires the flexibility of the conductive thread.

Also --- I no longer use the peg caps to hold the components in place -- after wrapping the conductive thread, super glue holds it in place better.

for the switch, you could just feed it a bit of extra wire to compensate probably.

Madness... Cool, but crazy!
