3D Printing Designs for Valentine’s Day!
I’m a huge sucker for roses so you can guess I’m a fan of Valentine’s Day! Sadly, roses are at an all time high in terms of pricing during Valentine’s but these 3D printed roses remain constant. Also these last a LOT longer. Coming to a 3D printer near you in almost any color you can dream of (but double check the color’s meaning! I once had a guy who gave me yellow roses, which we all know are for sick grandmas).
To ∞ and beyond
Valentine’s Day is soon approaching. Your safest bet is picking up some chocolates and flowers, but how about mixing it up a bit this year? I found a perfect gift for your Significant Other that shouldn’t take too long to print. Top it off with some chocolates (just in case) and tell your babe that you love ’em.
Uh oh, it’s already Valentine’s Day?
Whether you’re pressed for time and want a simple gesture of appreciation, or looking to become a DIY Hero, this is a great design for Valentine’s day. You could print a couple off and leave them in a strategic location to be found throughout the day, or you could go a little wild and create a 3D printed mold to make your very own custom chocolates out of melted chocolate chips! Just be sure to use some saran wrap on the inside of the mold before adding the chocolate to protect from the filament and you’ll be a hero!
Okay this is the perfect Valentine’s gift for any guy out there (just because it’s blue – ha!) or for anyone who has an iPhone 5 🙂 This is a heart shaped iPhone stand that is simple to print and will go perfectly with the additional presents you will be getting. By additional presents I mean the key to a black on black Porsche 911. Yeah that will do just fine and he will love you forever 🙂
Love being in love
It’s typically expected for men to shower their lady friends with gifts and affection on ye olde Valentine’s Day. I’ve been thinking a lot about how to return the favour this year. Flowers and candy seem like an odd choice for women to give men—though I do know some who do this. Perhaps some nummy cookies chock-full of sugary goodness is less weird? Hmm ladies? Hmmm?? He might not be able to fully appreciate the cute lovey dovey love birds, but I’m sure he’ll appreciate the buttery, sugary deliciousness 😉 And as per usual, gentlemen, your lady would be smitten by your act of bravery in battling the kitchen stove to win her heart. SMITTEN, I say! Because.. well, effort!
Everyone knows that swans are the symbol of true love and devotion. They only have one partner for their entire life and if their partner dies they could pass away from a broken heart. This 3D printed swan would be a great present for the person you love, and will tell your other half that your love is going to last forever.
Gift box wrapper
My pick! The Heart Jewelry Box by Alienkim. When in doubt, gift wrap your Valentine’s Day present in a 3D printed box! #beautiful. Interestingly, Alienkim just released an ebook titled ‘3D Modeling Workbook! Very cool. Congratulations!! You can check it out here on Amazon.
I love the intricacies in this design— and she will too! 😉 This is the perfect little gift to print out for your other half this Valentine’s Day! You can even put a light in it which adds a special something. If she’s not into necklaces, it also makes a great key chain! Nice work mingshiuan!
