Christmas is coming! How about diy an 3D printing automatic flip frame for Christmas gift?
We'll teach you to how to make this flip frame step by step including how to 3D print the components, how to connect the electronics!
3D printers are needed for making this gift, but you could also borrow one from the local hacker space!
Main functions of the frame 1.Light 2 and 3 will be lit every hour, leds make an animated display, the music box starts to play music

First, let’s start modeling.
Start 3D printing
Assemble the small 3D printed pieces with glue
Install the gear motor into the frame
Splice the frame with glue and color on it
Continue printing and lacquering the accessories;
