My mother was the one with the green thumb. She grew up on a farm and I grew up watching her tend to her garden without giving a second thought as to the lifetime of knowledge and experience it takes to foster living things. Now I am trying to grow herbs in my sun-less apartment and am learning the hard way about utilizing soil, watering, germination, seedlings, legginess, and most importantly.. light! So this little planter pendant really hits home for me and makes me wonder what sort of tiny plant will survive in this tiny container. I think all girls would appreciate a tiny plant necklace even if the plant lasts for only a week XD The shape is so cute that if the plant dies, she can always wear it with a tiny note rolled up inside so she can carry around an important piece of her thoughts. Print one for your favourite person now!
Are you worried about your precious Lightning cables tearing near the ends? Fear no more, 3D!NG has got you covered! With this design you can bend these cables all you want without any worry. If you’re like me and carry a powerbank in your coat pocket, you should definitely get them printed. Do it in white and it’s almost as if they’re not even there!
Once again, it’s 3D printing to the rescue! Millions of people use inhalers on a daily basis and if you are one of them, this print is for you. Probably one of the cleanest prints I’ve seen so far as well. Next time you need to take a breath, do it in style 🙂
I never appreciated the mountains in Vancouver until I lived in a big city in China where there were no mountains or blue skies! When I came back, I went hiking almost every weekend. I love this design because it reminds me of the awesome mountains we have at home (even if you can’t see them on a cloudy day!). What a great design that’s both functional and visually appealing. Made by none other than our Designer of the Month, 3DBrooklyn.
I’m a big fan of prints that print in one piece and still move, and this one is fantastic. The one and only mathgrrl recently uploaded all of her designs to Pinshape, and there are some really awesome ones so it was hard to choose my favorite. This one came out on top because it’s fun to play with and is exactly the type of thing I love having around my desk to keep my hands busy while I’m thinking. Enjoy!
We’ve all heard the recent news about how artists scanned Nefertiti’s bust using photogrammetry, and then used the scanned data to recreate the bust to share with the rest of the world (speculation surrounds this piece of news story on whether artists actually covertly used a scanner). I’ve been seeing prints online of the scanned bust, but it wasn’t till now that I saw this remixed one adding a bit of spice to the Egyptian queen! Love how it looks like she’s wearing a veil now with the voronoi design!
Foxy! My pick this week is a low poly fox by steven_dakh. It’s a really clean low poly model and has lots of great prints uploaded to Pinshape. If you haven’t seen Steven’s portfolio, definitely check it out here. He’s uploaded 65 designs for everyone so far. Have a great weekend!
Ticket to Ride Addict
If you have never played Ticket to Ride, you must give it a try! It’s one of the bestselling tabletop games in the world. We play it every weekend with my family. This card holder helps to keep all your cards in one place and store them safely 🙂 This is a small and very useful thing for Ticket to Ride addicts!

There’s been plenty of times where I’ve turned my house upside down just to find an AA battery. Either for my mouse or the XBOX controller. This AAA to AA will come super handy as I’ve got rechargeable AAA batteries I can use in a pinch. Easy and simple print that solves a problem. I dig these kinds of designs :).
