3D Printing Designs wire holder

Arm shaped hook by WallTosh

No matter where I take my laptop, unnecessary wires seem to magically find me and clutter up my workspace. With this little helper, I can now put all my wires aside to one side of the table and go back to what really matters . . . watching stand up comedies on Youtube! I mean . . . ummm work 😉

3D Printing Designs bubble maker

The Bicycle Bubble Machine by Jost Schenck

Who doesn’t love bubbles?!? Now, you don’t even have get the bubble juice all over your hands or blow through the bubble maker until you’re blue in the face! This is a really cool, whimsical and fun print that will be sure to have everyone smiling, laughing and chasing bubbles when you ride by. I can’t wait to print one out for my bike rides through the city.

3D Printing Designs christmas decoration

Fox by tigerklaue

Christmas is just around the corner!!! For those of you who are familiar with me by now, it should be no surprise to you that I’m super excited for the frosty holidays! This wintery design makes me feel like curling up with a book and a hot cocoa. That’s what holidays mean to me besides, of course the feastful fam jams and boisterous, alcohol-fuelled competitive game nights with friends! Get your decorating started early this year so your place feels extra festive.

Materialize ─ Cosmic Typography by atom3dp

Atom3DP are behind project “Materialize”. Materialize are compositions created by arranging multiple 3D printed objects into a frame. The compositions sparks our depth perception and challenges us to slowly scan the image to notice the small details within the frame. Here are a couple more Materialize compositions – enjoy!

3D Printing Designs emanada maker

Maquina de hacer empanadas / Empanada maker by christian_zakzuk

On first glance, I had no idea what this was. And then I realized it was for making empanadas! I’ve seen lots of cookie cutters, but an empanada mold? This is a first! For those of you concerned with food safety issues, maybe place a sheet of saran wrap between the shaper so the dough never actually touches the pastry/bread dough? Though, the dough shouldn’t touch the filament for too long since it’s just shaping it.

3D Printing Designs toothpick holder

Cactus toothpick by Dougwar

This Cactus toothpick is awesome! It’s both funny looking and useful. Small things are my passion. I would love to print a bunch of small things and place them all over my kitchen. I would also add small moving eyes to this cactus (like toys have). This is a very cool design! Love it 🙂

3D Printing Designs headphone holder

Headphone Hook for Table by Zer0Nu11

I’ve recently bought a new pair of high quality headphones and I’m treating them like a baby. The sound is great, they look great. There’s just one more thing that would make the whole experience perfect — a solid headphone holder. This design by Zer0Nu11 can be attached to a 3/4″ desk or table to keep the headphones our of your way. Very useful!

Ice Scraping Queen

3D Printing Designs ice scraper

Ice Scrapper by Dan Steele

Last week was one of the coldest we’ve seen in Vancouver (so far this year), so I scraped ice off my windshield every morning. I don’t have a scraper so I improvised and scraped the ice off with… my gym card, ha! Who knew a gym card could be good for more than one thing. Needless to say, I got my arm work out for the day using my tiny gym card to scrape all my windows. Lesson learned…I’ll be 3D printing this scraper for sure. Thanks Dan!  


We’d love to hear from you!
