Pinshape Featured Designs – July 28th

This week, you might have noticed the new Education Page added to Pinshape. We created this as a central resource for educators and makers alike to learn the fundamentals of 3D Printing, discover post-processing techniques and printing projects, and find lesson plans and models to share. Make sure to check out the new Education Page and stick around for this week’s featured functional models. 

Articulating, Wall-Mounted, Magnetic Phone Mount by Kenneth Haynie 

Wall mount your phone with this almost entirely printable and modular mount. It magnetically attaches to your phone and the arms can be chained together and customized to suit your needs.  

Arcade Bonnet Controller for RetroPi by Adafruit

This controller by Adafruit is designed to add arcade buttons to your Raspberry Pi. Couple it with any of the various emulators for the Pi and you’ll have a fully functional arcade! 

Thwomp from Mario by Daniel Melville 

Use this design as a simple container or spice things up a bit and turn it into a functional planter. This thwomp design couples especially well with succulents and other more aggressive plants. 

Wrench M3 M4 & M5 by jobsmolders

As 3D Printing materials continue to strengthen, new functional applications become accessible. These simple metric wrenches make for a great print when you need them in a pinch. 

Plantygon – Modular Geometric Stacking Planter by printfutura 

This design likely would have been featured based on the name alone, but we also especially enjoyed the stackable functionality of these planters. Make your own and let the tallest tower win!

Low Poly Chess Set by FORMBYTE

We’ve seen a number of full chess sets on Pinshape and especially liked the faceted and low-poly look of this new design by FORMBYTE. Great for replacing missing pieces or creating a full set. 


Pinshape is a 3D printing community and marketplace where makers from all over the world can find and share their next great 3D print and help each other get the best results from their 3D printers.
