Lover of the Macabre


Human Skull by bchan

This is a really cool, one piece print. I love the crease details on the side of the skull, bringing a great level of realism to the design. I’m not sure why, but skulls have always fascinated me, and no better way to explore them than by having your very own replica!

Low Poly Lover


Low Poly Bull by FORMBYTE

I love love love FORMBYTE’s series of low poly animals. They remind me of paper cutouts but in 3D. They look great printed in 1 colour because the light and shadows from the different facets give the forms really elegant dimensions! One of my first 3D print attempts is of a Low Poly Wolf but that failed miserably because of my lack of skill and knowledge about printing with supports. I think it’s time to try again! Show me your best low poly prints, guys!

Undertale – Sans (redux) by Chris Milnes

I LOVE Undertale! It has been a long time since I’ve played a game that I so thorougly enjoyed! And of course, there’s Sans, who’s this seemingly all-knowing, ever-present figure throughout your game. Whether he’s friend or foe is entirely up to you. And whether you print this out is also entirely up to you, but I say you really should. I think it’ll help you get on his good side when it comes to judgement day ūüôā

Mother of Dragons


iStein – House Stark Sigil (GoT) by Mutant Design

I’m not a huge beer drinker but I love GoT so I think this Stark sigil stein is awesome (try saying “Stark sigil stein” 5 times over!!). The sigil snaps on to the iStein drink caddy‚ÄĒ also availible on Pinshape. Now that the new season is out, you can support the Stark Clan and enjoy a beer while watching the newest episodes!

Stay thirsty!


Mug hook by richard.szenner

Check out this mug hooks by richard.szenner that you can use to save space in the kitchen by hanging your mugs. You can probably also use them to hang other items like pans. If you live in a small apartment, make sure to check out this design.

Beach Bro


Beach Umbrella Hook by QuangTri

Summertime is here and now it’s time to hit the beach! I love going to the beach (English Bay, mostly) and lie in the shade. This time, I’ll be bringing a beach umbrella and this nifty little hook to hang my towel. It’s small, durable and prints just right‚ÄĒ however , it does make me wonder… can¬†this hook hold a 6-pack? Only one way to find out ūüėČ

Vader Candy Mold by Mark Simmons

Did you miss Star Wars Day that took place on May 4th? No worries, the Dark Side forgives you. You can still save face by printing something over the weekend. How about this cool candy mold with the face of our Sith Lord? If the Death Star rays are making you sweat, you can also use the mold for ice cubes*

*Don’t use with carbonite or humans.

GoT addict


Dragon Scale Test Vase by Louise Driggers

Did you see the Game of Thrones premiere? Thoughts? Louise made this cool dragon scale vase that’s quite reminiscent of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragon eggs. Would look great printed out in the appropriate three colors for fans of the franchise!
