Pinshape Featured Designs – December 22nd

As the holidays quickly approach, we’re featuring designs that would make for great last-minute gifts or props to spice up your gatherings. Any of these models would make for great entries into the eSUN Print Contest where each week 5 winners can take their pick of several premium material options. 

Talking D20 by Adafruit

For those that break out the more unconventional board games at family gatherings, these D20 dice by adafruit are a great pick. Break out the soldering iron and follow Adafruit’s tutorial to transform these into talking dice. 

Darth Vader by Getxoblues

While Darth Vader may not play as central a roll in the recent Star Wars movies, he remains an infamous character among fans. Getxoblues has sectioned this model so that you can easily print each of the pieces and combine them together to create an articulating design. 

Surprise Egg #4 by agepbiz

Agepbiz packs an impressive amount of functionality into a small form factor with these surprise eggs. These are designed for ease of printing, requiring no supports, and feature a number of functional hinges. 

Articulated Christmas Toys by BQ

BQ likewise does a great job of creating models with few to no supports and multiple angles of articulation. These Christmas Toys are a great pick if you’re looking for a last-minute gift and are comfortable with a bit of painting. 

Dog Lamps by mingshiuan

Almost every family is likely to have one dog lover, and this lamp by mingshiuan would make for a great gift. This is a more more challenging to print than some of the other models but produces a rewarding effect. 

Swirling Urn by Louise Driggers 

Louise Driggers Swirling Urn design is great for those looking for a simple and functional print. Use vase mode for a quick print or multiple shells for a watertight design, but keep food safety in mind.
