Ring in the New Year with Some Fun Things to 3D Print

Share this Article

New Year’s Eve is one of those holidays that comes with a lot of pressure. You’re kind of made to feel like there’s something wrong with you if don’t have plans – big plans, full of glitz and glamour. Sometimes, though, you just want to stay in and watch a movie – or 3D print some things, and that’s perfectly okay. Speaking of 3D printing, though, there are plenty of things out there to 3D print for the New Year – whether you’re having a party, or just staying in and doing some printing by yourself. Whatever way you decide to welcome 2018, it’s easy to make 3D printing a part of it. Here are just a few of the New Year-themed 3D printables we found.

2018 Year of the Dog Decorations

Although Chinese New Year isn’t until February, the upcoming year will be the Year of the Dog, and Thingiverse user sysmes decided to get a head start by designing some dog-themed 2018 decorations. These creatively incorporate dogs right into the year itself, and would look nice mounted on a wall or on a door welcoming people in to celebrate the New Year.

Champagne Lamp

New Year’s Eve parties generally mean champagne, and if you’d like to empty a few bottles before the party starts (maybe not all at once), you can make some cool lighting out of them. Thingiverse user GREGWEED 3D printed a base and a bulb holder, complete with on/off switch, for a champagne bottle, creating a classy and festive lamp.

Champagne Glass

Speaking of champagne, things can get a little crazy at a New Year’s Eve party, so why risk your good glass champagne flutes getting broken? 3D print some out of a clear filament with this design from Youmagine user I-Magine, and they’ll look just as good as the real thing. Just please make sure you’re using food-safe filament.

2018 Happy New Year Fun Glasses

It also wouldn’t be New Year’s Eve without at least one person wearing giant glasses in the shape of the year to come, so why not be that person yourself? 2017 was an awkward year when it came to glasses design, as there was no obvious place to put a second eyehole, but 2018 puts us right back on track with two nice round numbers to peer through thanks to Thingiverse designer Auggie.

2018 Earrings

These 2018 earrings from Thingiverse user catf are quick and easy if you’re looking for a last-minute way to jazz up your outfit for New Year’s Eve. 3D print them in gold, silver or a clear crystal-like filament and they’ll look especially fancy. 3D print one more and you can make yourself a necklace, too.

Those are just a few of the fun New Year’s Eve-themed 3D models that are out there – there’s plenty of festive stuff to 3D print, and if you’d like to get a head start on next year’s holiday season, you can check out our roundup of holiday models as well. However you end up celebrating the New Year this year, please be careful, don’t drink and drive, and always be hopeful about the year to come.
