3d printing designs ring

Feroz by Castomized

This ring is a good example that 3D printed jewelry can also be beautiful and stylish. I like its shape and small angular parts. Would be the perfect fit for some kind of rock girl costume.

skull ashtray pinshape 3d printing designs 

Skull Ashtray by samuel_choy

Do you smoke? Do your friends smoke? If you’ve answered yes to any of those questions, this design is definitely for you. Remind yourself or your friends that smoking stinks and print this awesome ashtray that looks like a human skull. Maybe your house will start smelling nice again. You’re welcome.

wooden star puzzle 3d printing designs

Wooden star puzzle by kearworks

I really like physical puzzles, even though I’m not very good at them. I think this is an excellent and compact puzzle that can sit well on your work desk. You can fiddle with it whenever you want a break, or have spare time. Let me know if you figure out the answer!

chinese new year 3d printing designs

Chinese New Year Lamp Cookie Cutter by OogiMe

I’m a kind of guy that likes celebrating special events from all around the world. With Chinese New Year around the corner, this Chinese lamp shaped cookie cutter naturally caught my eye. I like that it’s easy to print (at most, it will only take a few hours, without supports) and it’s festive as well. In my book, that’s called a ‘WIN’! 🙂

Rick and Morty Fan

ricks portal gun rick and morty 3d printing designs

Rick’s Portal Gun by Joey Stoll

After hearing a lot about Rick & Morty, the adult cartoon, I finally decided to start watching it. Now that I’ve seen a few episodes, I’m hooked! This design is perfect for any fans of the show that want their very own portal gun. It works best to print it with multiple colors of filament, but can also be printed in a single color and painted after. Enjoy!

Little plane by toon_ramakers

Up up and away~~~~! Aw man more and more cool toys are showing up on Pinshape. <3 This week I’m giving a shout-out to Toon Ramakers and his Little Plane model. It’s so cute and well designed, I need to steal some 3D printer time from Karen in the office to print this out!! Looking forward to seeing more from Toon on Pinshape. 🙂

lego 3d printing cowboy hat 3d printing designs

LEGO-compatible cowboy hat by Isotalo 3d printing designs

I love the idea of customizing your toys with 3D printable accessories! Anything Lego also brings back fond childhood memories. Imagination and creativity are such a huge part of being a kid and building with Lego pieces and characters really brings that out. Can’t wait to see what other lego accessories Isotalo will come up with!

Fixing with 3DP

Bathtub Strainer (Hair Catcher) by Xansibar

Yup, my wife’s hair clogs the drain! Last time I was at the hardware store I was actually looking for one of these! 3DP to the rescue. Thanks to Xansibar, who hails from BC! Xansibar, if you’re ever in Vancouver, come by the office and say hi! Cheers!

Safety First

dremel accessory 3d printed 3d printing designs

Dremel Accessory (Protect Cover) by fredibank

Safety is always important when working with metal. With a plastic bottle and Fredibank’s design, you can add an extra layer of safety when working with a Dremel. Just watch out for the plastic as it could melt under a lot of heat!
