Groceries Carrier

Pinshape best 3d designs bag holder
Bag Holder by ivanseidel

I live in an apartment and it’s a real pain in the ass to go back and forth to the car when I’m unloading my groceries and bringing them upstairs. As a result, I always end up trying to carry everything in a single trip and predictably put my hands through torture carrying so much. Well, I’m through with those days! This little accessory makes it easy to carry a lot more at once, without having all the bags cutting into my hands.

Pinshape best 3d designs makertronArc – The Forgotten One by Dr.Zeus

Whoa! I’m so impressed with the MakerTron entries! This one in particular by Dr.Zeus caught my eye because of the awesome paint job and I can totally imagine a device like this zooming around, patrolling, gathering data and reporting back to command! Would look cooler in black, however maybe that gold-gray colour was popular when Arc was created, eons ago!

3D printed origami— it looks so cool! I’ve seen paper cranes 3D printed, but these bunnies look even better in my opinion. And the fact that I don’t actually know how to fold origami bunnies makes it perfect, since I don’t have to learn.

Pinshape best 3d designs iphone case

Spidersuit Iphone 5 Case by FORMBYTE

My friends think I’m crazy, but I love spiders a lot. They are cute ☺ You know, there are so many different phone cases, but it always takes a lot of time to find your perfect one. So this Spidersuit case is definitely my perfect one. It is thin, minimalistic, colored with black or white and has spider. Btw good suit for your phone on Halloween 😉

Pinshape best 3d designs AT-STAT-ST Makertron by dave_clarke

Our MakerTron contest has just ended yesterday. There were many great entries. Thanks everybody for joining! What caught my attention was this AT-ST model. I’m a big Star Wars fan, so this model is pretty awesome to me with all the attention to detail. I’ve been playing the new Battlefront beta over the weekend and these AT-STs are the most annoying thing in the game.

Pinshape best 3d designs saber toothed tiger

Low Poly Saber Toothed Tiger by FORMBYTE

I personally love wild cats! Even the ones that are extinct like this one lol. The overall dimensions on this make it look quite modern while keeping its original “viciousness” intact. I love it! It’s definitely my favourite for this week!

We’d love to hear from you! 

That’s it for this week! Which Pinshape design would you have chosen? Check back next week for another set of picks from your Pinshape staff, or subscribe to our mailing list to get this delivered to your inbox every Friday!
