Glowing Icosahedron Mace with Spikes by Adafruit

Adafruit is making Halloween easy with last week’s unicorn horn and this week’s awesome Icosahedron Mace. We wish you the best of luck in rivaling Adafruit’s print quality and photography savvy.

Fatebringer by Tanner

This Fatebringer pistol from the game Destiny prints easily in multiple pieces and has a fully rotating barrel. I’m told this picture is a real image of the printed design and not a render. 

Nesty by Castomized

Castomized has some whimsical and stylish designs and these lamp covers are no exception. Give them a print to check out the awesome pattern they project on their surroundings. 

Pokeball with LED Light by Christian Arnø

This high tech Pokeball incorporates LED buttons and magnets to have it open and close. Check out Christian’s site for a full post on how this was built, including printing and electronics wiring. 

Vangpad – Game Console by vang1

The PiGRRL series by Adafruit is one of the most popular designs on Pinshape and it looks like it has a new contender. This gamepad uses the Raspberry Pi 3 and a number of electronics to make a fully functional platform. 

4 DOF Printed Robotic Arm by  Christian Arnø

This incredible robotic arm shows the scope of what can be done with 3D printing. With 4 degrees of freedom, it compares to some of the industrial arms you might see in manufacturing. 

Refrigerator Magnets by rafbe

These magnets will really spice things up your refrigerator. Rafbe designed them with support structures so all you need to do is hit print! 

That’s all for this week! If you’re looking for design inspiration, check out this article on designing a full human exoskeleton by Alex Czech.
