Dragon Tamer

Interesting 3D designs dragon
“Braq” jointed dragon by BQ

Start the New Year off with a powerful new ally by your side; Braq. This print looks really cool when it’s all assembled, and articulated models are always fun to play with. You even have some room for creativity with a post-print paint job.

Interesting 3D designs headphones holder

Headphone Stand by Suraki

This is a pretty cool desktop headphone holder! It reminds me of steel frame structures like the timeless Eiffel Tower and gives your room a industrial look. Perhaps it’s time to spruce up your office space with fresh decor in 2016. Let’s start the year off right!!!

Interesting 3D designs coffee art

Hearts & Kisses Coffee Decorating Stencils by  OogiMe

For my fellow coffee lovers out there — these stensils are awesome! I have a cappuccino machine at home but I haven’t mastered coffee art yet (the best I can do is a foam “mountain” on top) so these would add a little extra pizzazz when I have company over! Though it might encourage me to have more coffee than I really need… Cheers to the new year!

Interesting 3D designs hulk piggy bank

Hulk Piggy Bank by Shining 3D

This design is just awesome! That’s why I like it 🙂 It’s not just a sweet hulk design, but you can actually use it as a little piggy bank. If increasing your savings is one of your goals for 2016, printing this off and actually using it would be a great start 🙂

Interesting 3D designs rocket ship

Modular Rocket Ship by Fuad Mohd

This is a sweet modular design of a rocketship by Fuad Mohd. The rocketship was designed to be a playhouse. I will be repurposing this design to store a wine bottle in the empty chamber. To do so, the rocketship chamber will need to stretch upwards to be tall enough for the bottle. Faud plans to upload more chamber and expansion compartments modules for the rocketship. Looking forward to seeing them!

Interesting 3D designs board game

TARDIS Run Game – Print in Parts by joealarson  

I can’t wait to see my cousins for our yearly Christmas dinner, and as always, there’s a good portion of the night dedicated to board games! TARDIS run is portable, and my family is pretty into Doctor Who. Plus, the whole 3D printed aspect will definitely make for a good conversation starter!

Interesting 3D designs chipmunk decoration

Cartoon Chipmunk. Christmas Edition by voronartcom

I love to make those closest to me happy by giving them surprises and presents when I can! Winter Holidays is a great time for presents and my nephew loves the cartoon talking chipmunks. This awesome toy would be a wonderful present for him. Very nicely done 😉

Interesting 3D designs screw drivers

PocketTool V1.0 by guvrnor

You never know when a screwdriver will come in handy. With guvrnor’s design, you won’t have to worry about that anymore. You can carry two heads of your choice in this tiny thing and secure them with some elastic bands. It’s a great idea and awesome model to print. This design is joining my Practical Prints collection.
