Here’s something of interest of 3D printing enthusiasts. How do you print lightweight3D objects? Tom Stanton does a lot of stuff with 3D printing and RC airplanes. His solution is Simplify3D, printing two layers for whatever nozzle diameter you have, some skills with Fusion360, and some interesting design features that include integrated ribs.

There are four categories, the smallest implementation for SpartFusion2 or IGLOO2 boards, and the smallest implementation that fits on an iCE40 UltraPlus board. The two additional categories are the highest performance implementation for these boards. The prize is $6k.
