Batman or Superman?

Batman VS Superman Helmet by david_ruiz

Wow. David Ruiz has skills! Very cool mini replica helmet. Can’t wait to see the movie (coming out March 23, 2016!). Also, David posted an insane timelapse of a ZBrush design of a Hulk model he did on his YouTube Channel— Check it out!

fan pinshape 3d printer designs

Fan by bulgakova.tanya

Okay this is going to be my first multi-piece print. It’s simple to make, and the design on each individual blade is just perfect. If you are looking to create a 3D printed object that has more than one piece and is still simple to produce, I highly encourage you to go with this one. Don’t forget to use multi-colored filaments 😉 Oh yeah! (Don’t use it just yet by the way. Save it for the summer and show it off at the beach).

shade pinshape 3d printer designs

LUX Lamp Shade by Salokannel

Happy Chinese New Year! This lampshade is absolutely gorgeous and it reminds me of the beautiful lanterns on display during the Chinese Lantern Festival. A few years ago I was lucky enough to be in China during one of these festivals and whole streets were lined with fancy lanterns that showcased different patterns and designs. This design was inspired by the LUX Light Festival in Helsinki – great work by Salokannel. I would love to have this in my house!

Life size Thor’s hammer (Mjolnir) by ChaosCoreTech

If you love Thor, then you need to print this off right now! This is a great looking replica of Mjolnir that you can use to keep evil in check wherever you are in the universe. The paint job alone on this is fantastic, and there are full print setting and post-processing instructions so you can feel truly heroic with your final creation! Are you worthy?

bed prism spectacles 3d printer designs
Bed Prism Spectacles by Dougwar

This is something you didn’t know you needed in your life until you saw it. Bed Prism Spectacles by Dougwar solves one of the annoying things about reading books or watching TV in bed — straining your neck. Just lie down, get comfortable, and enjoy. What a great invention! I don’t know why it isn’t more popular. If somebody prints it, let me know on twitter!

zombi pinshape 3d printer designs

Zombi by milostutu

This zombie is awesome. There are so many beautiful details, such as his muscles and his emotions. I just can’t stop looking at him. I’d like to have a zombie like this on my work desk. It would be a great motivator for me to get working haha!

fuji instax frame 3d printer designs
Fuji Film Instax Mini Picture Frame by deadlygeek

I have Instax photos lying around, and a few clipped up to display on my wall. This is the perfect, easy-to-print design that can let me more prominently display my photos, and swap them out from time to time. I know quite a few friends who would benefit from having one of these and I can’t wait to have some spare printer time to churn some out!
