On Vacation!toy submarine alienkimToy Submarine by alienkim

Super cool sub from alienkim. Time to get some glue and start assembling! I’m going to try out a few different colours for the parts and see how it looks. If you’re printing this one out, make sure to upload a Print so we can check it out! #bathtoys for my boys!

 Travellercolosseum mahapolty pinshapeColosseum by mahapolty

I was lucky enough to visit Rome a few months ago on vacation, and one of the highlights of the trip was certainly getting to see and enter the legendary Colosseum! This beautiful and intricately designed model does a wonderful job of capturing the beauty of the former arena, complete with the exposed underground where the animals and gladiators used to wait for their battles. While it’s no comparison to actually visiting the ancient spectacle, it’s certainly a great version to enjoy in your home or classroom!

shopping cart token creativetools pinshapeShopping Cart Token by CreativeTools

This is a tool hackers like John Draper or Kevin Mitnick would have loved to have in their toolbox: a shopping cart token. Easy print that will save you some pocket change! You might have to modify the design depending on where you live.

 Big Kid!Open Toys le fabshop pinshapeOpen Toys by le FabShop

These toy parts by le FabShop have been around the 3D scene for awhile now, and it’s about time someone called attention to them once again! How clever to design parts that can be added to funny shapes, be it fruits and veggies, or play dough and yarn balls. These little add-ons are such gems for any kid’s toy box so they can maximize their creative little brains. Have you downloaded your Open Toys set yet?

 Reorganizing Roomstacka open boxaStacka Open Boxa by Pikitote

I can’t get over how fun the description of this design is to say!

“What if a resista hang out with a capacita? Bad things can happa! Keep them aparta with Stacka Open Boxa”

Although I don’t have resistors and capacitors, these boxes will work well in helping me re-organize my room. Maybe even a good solution to store some of my 3D printing knick knacks!

 Not an Elephant

I chose this Print because the Elephant looks like comfortable and lazy. 🙂

Elephant joke:
Q: How do you stop a charging elephant?
A: Take away his credit card.
Allen: I’m not an Elephant!

 Flight Watcherchain link tablet standChain Link Tablet Stand by PRINTinZ

I recently got a new tablet and found a cool airplane radar. I got hooked instantly and now I’m watching the airspace above my city at least a few times a day. This stand would be awesome for my desk to keep the radar open and available for me to look at during breaks. It’s a very creative design and puts some fun into a usual tablet stand!

 Pokemon Trainerpokeball spragclutch pinshapePokeball (opens and closes) by SpragClutch 

If you have a Pokemon, this is the right thing for you. Personally I have a young Bulbasaur who’s always staring at me during my work. It seems my Bulbasaur wants to go home. Or at least to a Pokeball.
If you don’t have any Pokemon, go and grab one on Pinshape!

 ?Keychain (Ted Nugent) Pinshape steven dakhGuitar Pick with Hole for Keychain (Ted Nugent) by steven_dakh

I love guitar music. I have many friends who love playing the guitar and of course they always lose their guitar picks. It is so cool that now we can just print another one and continue to sign songs. By the way the hole for keychain is a very nice addition!


We’d love to hear from you!
