3D printing designs GoPro Gubbinses Pinshape
Zheng’s GoPro Gubbinses by zheng3

Another simple but great design from zheng3, and this time for everyone’s favorite extreme sports camera – the GoPro. This accessory makes it really easy to expand the capabilities of your GoPro, especially when you’re trying to capture long prints and turn them into time lapse videos. This little accessory gives you the access you need to keep your camera charged over long periods of time, while allowing you to get your camera into the perfect position before you hit print.

3D printing designs Pinky Splint PinshapePinky Splint by simon kangiser

Ho! MEDIIIIIIC! As some of you may remember from my July 1 week’s staff pick, I mentioned I dislocated my pinky playing in a volleyball tournament. As I’m still in recovery mode, this little pinky splint gets my nod of approval. Lucky for me, recovery hasn’t been too awful and I’m already playing vball again (shhh don’t tell my doctor…). After I got injured I started noticing other people’s injuries and my heart aches a little. I also found out another finger I thought I jammed was actually broken 🙁 So now I’m SUPER paranoid about broken fingers and advise anyone who injures their phalanges to get them checked out post-haste lest you end up gimpy like me! Be extra diligent about utilizing finger splints such as this and rehabilitate your digits by exercising them routinely.

3D printing designs Great Wall of China PinshapeGreat Wall of China by MiniWorld

For my dad’s birthday I ended up printing out this Great Wall of China design from MiniWorld! He’s from Hong Kong, and I know he misses Chinese culture from time to time (his ringtone is this old-school Chinese opera song that never fails to get the attention of everyone in a 5 mile radius), and he ended up loving this. He even wanted to post-process this himself! I can imagine these plastic walls can be made into impressive brick walls given some effort and love!

3D printing designs Halo Tron Inspired Ring PinshapeHalo/Tron Inspired Ring by Daniel Girgis

I don’t wear rings anymore, actually for a long time now… Although if I were to put a band on, I think that this style would be an expression of the minimalist and futuristic detail that holds or draws my eye just for a few more seconds in comparison to another one. I would definitely like to see this printed in Titanium.

 DIY Master3D printing designs Small House Model Small House Model with Attachable Roof by jonathan_burgers

It will sound strange but this house with detachable roof can be turned into a great clock or a thermometer. My dad has made a few such clocks by placing a small chip in the house, and LEDs on the small windows. If you want to make a thermometer, it’ll be more complicated – you’ll need a device that will determine the correct temperature, but it’s still possible☝.

 Pac-Man3D printing designs Pac-Man Pinshape 3D PrintingRetro Pac-Man Set by Andy Bihlmaier

2015 is the 25th birthday of Pac-Man! The game is a classic. Pac-Man nostalgia is everywhere, the game is available even on your smartphone. It shows that great games don’t need high-end graphics to be enjoyable. Pay a tribute to the arcade machine times and print this one for your home. It’s a great decoration!

 Reading Shantaram3D printing designs Budda Pinshape 3D Printingbudda by boopathi n

If one day you want a Buddha sculpture you don’t even have to visit India. Of course, you can 3D print it! Looks decent to stay on a table. When hard times come you can always ask this 3D printed Buddha for advice.
